Since I have just about the biggest photo opp of my life coming up (my wedding!) I was lucky enough to be asked by my favorite hair removal mecca, Completely Bare, if I wanted to come in and try out their teeth whitening treatment. I am so happy that I did! My pearly whites are going to dazzle the crowd! Here is a quick recap of my experience:
Your technician greets you and you're taken to a treatment room. They give you a little finger mitt to take any residue on your teeth, off so the whitening gel can really get onto your teeth. Then they pull out a device that resembles a hockey mouthguard. It's filled with whitening gel. You put that in your mouth and then lean back for 20 minutes with a UV light pointed directly at your pearly whites. Your technician will come back and check on you about halfway through but for 20 minutes you can basically just chill and listen to some music. I tried to keep my eyes closed because the light is super bright. You take the whitening tray out and spit. It's not sexy but ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right? Also, you will almost definitely drool during this sexy process but they're very understanding and make you feel comfortable feeling like an invalid.
My results? I've went two times now, the first time I could definitely see a difference but the second time it was more pronounced. It's not too pricey, at $150 a session. It's probably just double something like Crest Whitestrips and you're in and out in 20 minutes. Plus, you're not riding the subway looking like a tool with whitestrips on! It'd also be a great gift to get a friend who is about to get married!
