I’ve been an avid coffee drinker since I was in grade school. Yes, you read that correctly, I think I started drinking coffee when I was in fourth grade. I also smoked for a number of years. I drink soda and eat a number of foods with acid in them. Oh, I should probably note that I hate going to the dentist too but that is mainly because I have sensitive teeth.
No, this is not a laundry list of all of my flaws. I brush my teeth three times a day and try to maintain a healthy mouth but that has not always been easy and definitely has not always been the case. I still drink coffee like a fiend but I quit smoking and have cut back on my soda intake. Unfortunately, changing my habits did not change the damage that has already been done to my teeth.
I have looked into teeth whitening but it is ungodly expensive. I’ve tried different whitening toothpastes off and on but they don’t work. The strips, I spent all that money, tried them once and then gave my sister the box. After numerous failed attempts I decided that my teeth were okay enough and I knew that I wasn’t willing to stop drinking coffee so I gave up.
And then it happened. I was buckling my daughter into her booster seat after her picking her up from school. I went to give her a smooch on the cheek after telling her I had missed her and as I was getting ready to kiss her she said, “Mommy, why are your teeth so yellow?” Not only was I devastated, I was mortified. I didn’t even know what to say at the time so I shut the door, walked to the driver side of the car, and started our journey home. She started singing and the conversation became nothing more than a mere memory, at least for her.
I started looking into teeth whitening again but cringed when I saw the cost and simply could not justify the expense. But the “you have icky teeth” gods must have talked because within a couple of months Dr Song asked me to review their Professional Teeth Whitening Kit. My response was a resounding YES!
We will skip the formalities and get down to the knitty gritty … does this stuff work?
As I mentioned above, I have extremely sensitive teeth so any form of product aimed at the mouth, especially teeth makes me really nervous. I was excited when Dr Song offered to send me their Remineralization Gel as well; it is for remineralizing and reduces teeth sensitivity. It is used after the whitening treatment so we will get back to that.
I will say, for me, this was not a miracle worker. At least, not at first! It took me four applications to start to notice a difference but to me, that does not make this product a failure. I may be wrong but I don’t think whitening treatments at the dentist’s office are miracle workers after one application so why would a home treatment be any different? As I said, I started to notice a difference after four uses and it has only gotten better from there. The Dr Song Treatments DO WORK!
One kit is said to contain 50 applications but I did not use the amount that it said would be needed, I used less. That just means the product will last me longer and I am all for that! I still drink coffee all day so I need all the help that I am able to get.
As for the Remineralization Gel, I love it. I have a few extremely sensitive areas in my mouth so I applied the gel right after my whitening application. There wasn’t any pain in those areas so I believe the gel did its job. Needless to say, these areas are so sensitive that I am too chicken to try whitening without it so I will go on believing the gel is my savior. ;)
Overall, this is a great kit at a great price and I love that this allows me to work on correcting one of my flaws that leaves me feeling rather unconfident, in the privacy of my own home. I definitely recommend this kit to anyone looking to whiten their teeth at a reasonable price. Just remember, it may take a few uses before you see results!
