Yeah, you read that right. I found a teeth whitener, that actually works, that doesn’t cause any sensitivity. I’m in shock too. Which is why I had to share it with you guys. I don’t know a single person that doesn’t want to whiten their teeth, do you? I’ve been on the hunt for a good whitening product for years now. I’ve tried toothpastes, mouth washes, strips, gels, blue light thingies and all with very minimal success.
You see, I’ve got sensitive teeth and anything that’s too hot or too cold hurts them. I can’t bite into ice cream or slurp too hot of tea without my teeth feeling kinda meh. I’m sure a lot of you have this problem. Or, at least have a problem with teeth whiteners causing your gums and teeth to throb. The reviews on any at home teeth whitener have complaints that are always the same “this made my teeth hurt”.
Supersmile Teeth Whitener
Anyways, I discovered Supersmile at Ulta and figured for $30 I could be okay if it didn’t work, and ecstatic if it did. Well, it did. I purchased the Ultimate Whitening system that includes 2 toothpastes and 8 activating rods.
One toothpaste is a regular ole minty toothpaste that’s actually really nice. The other “toothpaste” is a whitening accelerator gel. You use a pea sized amount of each twice a day instead of your normal toothpaste. They say to use this on a dry toothbrush and I can totally see why. A wet toothbrush just causes the paste to not stick as well to your teeth.
As for the activator rod, you use those twice a week, or every once in a while when you need a boost of whitening. Just rub this all over your teeth before brushing and be sure to brush for at least 2 minutes when using the activator rod. It seems like a long time but when you know you’re whitening your teeth it goes by much quicker.
Before is up top, after is below. So embarrassed of my bottom teeth, don’t judge!
// Well, it actually works. I apologize if the pictures aren’t proof enough but I had no intentions of writing a post about this. I just took the before picture as reference for myself. Believe it or not, I had braces for two years. Ugh.
// Does not cause any sensitivity. I know it’s hard to believe but it’s true. So incredibly thrilled.
// I noticed a difference after one use. For realz.
// Not a lot of work to add to your daily brushing routine.
// Extra tooth paste and accelerator to keep using even when you’ve used up the rods.
// I wish it whitened a bit better, but obviously, unless you get whitening professionally done it won’t be dazzlingly white.
// Can’t find this at Ulta anymore so you’ve got to buy it on Amazon (not really a drawback but I like instant gratification).
// Adds an extra step to your brushing twice a week ( I would forget to use the rods every once in a while).
// I will buy this teeth whitener again for sure. I’ve used up all 8 of the activating rods but I still have the toothpaste and activating gel that I use twice a day. I’ll wait a few months before using this again but I really enjoy the results I got and the price can’t really be beat. Check out the Supersmile website to get more detailed product information but buy it from Amazon, it’s much cheaper and also on Prime if you’ve got that.
Let me know if you guys have sensitive teeth! Please reassure me that i’m not alone.
