I first heard about PlusWhite 5 minute speed whitening gel from a Kandee Johnson video (click here for video). She always has the best recommendations, so I tried it. I've done 5 applications and I love it. The kit comes with the whitening gel, some pre-whitening rinse, and a mouth piece.
The first time I did it, I filled the mouth piece with gel, and it was way too much! The directions say to squeeze the gel into the mouthpiece, and the opening of the tube is pretty large, so a lot came out. It got all over the place, including my tongue which I noticed made my snack taste weird for awhile afterwards.
The next time I did it, I used my finger to spread some of the gel all over my teeth, (mainly the teeth that you can see), making sure I got between the teeth, then stuck the mouthpiece in. Doing it this way will make the tube last a long time, so teeth whitening becomes ultra cheap!
I have used Crest Whitening strips, but they were messy, expensive, tasted nasty, and made my teeth sensitive. PlusWhite gel does not taste bad, and I have not had any sensitivity. It is super easy to use, and because of Kandee's suggestion, I do it in the shower, so it just becomes part of my "getting ready" routine. It is suggested that you use it twice a day at first. I didn't because I noticed whitening fairly quickly, so I have just done it once a day. I will continue a few more days, I have a feeling I'll have to stop myself because it really is kind of addicting!
Some people on Amazon. com reviews have said the mouth piece is kind of uncomfortable for smaller mouths. I have a super small mouth and it is fine for me, but if you would like something softer that molds to the teeth, you must watch the video that Kandee made. It shows how she took a regular sports mouth guard,(at Walmart for a buck) softened it by boiling it, then she stuck it in her mouth and sucked in with her teeth together. It molds to the teeth and--voila! A custom mouthpiece for a buck! That is impressive, but since my kit came with a mouth piece, I skipped the custom one.
Let me know if you try this and what you think.
Do you whiten your teeth? What do you use?
