Instead of taking a trip to the dentist to get trays made and buying the whitening solution from the dentist, you purchase the kit online, take the impressions yourself, send them into the lab and they send back the completed trays along with the whitening paste. It saves time and money to do it this way.
I must say I was the ultimate procrastinator, though, because I had the notion that only trained dental assistants are qualified to make the impressions, not someone like myself, who has never taken a dental class in my life. I didn't know if I would be able to make a good impression of my own teeth.
But I really needed to make it happen and finally one evening I set aside an hour to do just that. I read through the detailed instructions included in the kit and was able to make my impressions. Luckily they do provide you with an extra ball of clay in case you make a boo boo with the first try, which I did. I sent in my impressions and they came back very quickly, within a week!
I then started the whitening process, using their highly effective whitening gel. My teeth responded very quickly. I only did three 15-minute sessions and they whitened up about 3 levels. I was really impressed. There is an after-whitening gel, which in addition to de-sensitizing your teeth, seals up any tiny crevices or cracks in your teeth to keep the enamel from breaking down. It's just extra service they provide with the regular whitening process! I highly recommend using this because it really helps with the comfort and effectiveness of the overall process!
This experience came in a timely fashion because I was noticing that my teeth had some yellowing issues and more often than not, you would find me with my mouth closed, to avoid showing my teeth. I'd still smile, just without the dingy yellows showing. Now I'm not ashamed to show my pearly whites, and I can practice what I preach about the art of smiling!
