Man, it really sucks when you see a picture of you and a friend and your eyes are drawn to the fact that their teeth are noticeably whiter than yours. I have never been able to whiten my teeth. I remember buying Crest white strips for the first time as a teenager, and leaving them on even though it felt like I was chewing on tinfoil. I wasn’t brave enough to continue to regimen, so my teeth never got whiter, but every few years I would try them out again with the same results.
I haven’t heard much about HiSmile but a couple of weeks ago I was talking to a friend who mentioned that they were good for sensitive teeth. Later that night Kylie Jenner posted on SnapChat that the product was 50% off, so I decided to buy a kit.
The package showed up in the mail yesterday. It took about two (maybe three) weeks to get here. I think it came from Australia? Not 100% sure because I had someone else do the ordering for me, but it says AirMail. I was super amused to see that I am apparently a company called “What Up Jenn” in 2017.
The kit comes with three pens full of gel, a mouth piece, and a UV light. It also comes with a “how it works” note that explains how to use the product and a tool that allows you to measure the shade of your teeth before starting use.
I think my teeth are about a seven. This isn’t the best light, but the photo is unedited.
After measuring my tooth color, I pieced together the product and put it in my mouth. I pushed the button, and voila! It wasn’t terribly difficult to figure out, and the product wasn’t strange to use. I waited the full ten minutes and could see a bit of a shade difference immediately after, though not anything significant. I could definitely see the calciums in my teeth that had whitened up.
While it wasn’t pain free, the pain was only on the top of my two upper front teeth and was gone before bedtime. I am a little nervous about that and I’m hoping it doesn’t get worse as the week goes on.
Please let me know if you have any questions! I’m not sure if there are any referral bonuses for this product, but if you decide to buy let me know so I can look. It’s always nice for us all if we can get discounts!
