Anyone that has ever witnessed me drink hot coffee with a straw has always asked me the usual question for my not so usual habit: Why are you drinking THAT with a straw!? My response: I don’t want to stain my teeth! Even my toddler will question me if she doesn’t see a straw in my coffee – because she is so use to it!
With so many options out there for teeth whitening, I have become a little more laid back about my drinking-coffee-with-a-straw habit. To get a professional whitening, you would usually have to spend hours in a dentist chair and a few hundred dollars. This isn’t the case anymore, as you can go to your local drugstore and pick from dozens of tooth whitening products which all claim to do the same thing: whiten your teeth. I have actually used a popular product and while I was happy with the price tag, I was not happy with the results. I had to stop using it after a few treatments because my teeth ached so bad. I stuck to whitening toothpastes until I tried Rembrandt 2 hour Whitening Kit.
When I opened the package, I realized immediately this was not your typical tooth whitening product. Customizable trays were included, as were 8 tubes of whitening gel. Each application is about 20 minutes long and after 2 hours you have teeth that are shades whiter! I only used two applications because thanks to my straw habit, my teeth aren’t too badly stained. I was happy with the results and I now maintain my white teeth with Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste and Mouthwash. I love that the toothpaste and mouthwash penetrate deep into the tooth enamel to whitening deep surface stains. Your typical whitening toothpaste will only whiten surface stains, but after years of coffee drinking, the stains are way past the surface into your tooth enamel.
There are quite a few steps to achieving success with the Rembrandt 2 hour whitening kit, here are some pictures to show you how it’s done:
|The kit comes with 2 trays – top and bottom and
8 tubes of whitening gel
|To customize the tray to the shape of your teeth,
place the tray in hot water for a few seconds and then
place it in your mouth and bite down
|Cut off the top|
|open the gel tube|
|place in the tray and then put on your teeth for 20 minutes|
And that’s it! Each tube is for 1 application. After 20 minutes, you wipe off your teeth and start the process again until you reach the desired whiteness.
