Yellow teeth aren’t cute. I think that’s one thing that we all can agree on here. I don’t want to use long-term whitening products at all. We live in an instant society, and that’s one of the reasons Zoom whitening is so popular. Who wants to deal with all that?
With the economy not being very cooperative right now, we’re all looking for less expensive ways to do everything. I want cheap, quick results just like everyone else so I clicked my heels together and bought the Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit on sale. Hoping to eliminate the trace evidence that I’m an avid coffee drinker, I embarked on the 2 hour whitening experience.
This method takes 4 applications in a 2 hour period– 20 minutes on and 10 minutes off for both the top and bottom trays.
While this isn’t an overly messy process, it is a time consuming one that will require you to block out an entire 2 hours of your schedule. Imagine me trying not to talk to the hubby for an entire 2 hours, I’m sure he was quite happy about that part! A word of caution– don’t apply too much of the gel thinking it’s going to work faster and better like I did. It resulted in a little bit of an uncomfortable burn on the inside of my lower gums that lasted for a few days. That part was not fun, but it was entirely my own fault. By application #3, I did see a visibly whiter result that made me pretty excited that I was coming down the home stretch and I only had one more application to go. After #4, I did have whiter teeth and that was the goal after all. So yes, this system does work, but not to movie star white standards. If I had to do it all over again, I would most definitely use less gel and not try to do it in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. I would pick a less busy time in my life like 2 hours before I went to bed so that I could unwind and read a book while it’s working!
