A bright, white smile doesn’t just look good, it also increases your self-confidence and gives the impression of good health. Additionally, many people, including myself, think that a bright smile can take years of your face. I’ve tried many different teeth-whitening methods, ranging from tooth pastes and whitening pens to laser lights and whitening strips. Recently, while browsing the toothpaste isle, I came across another whitening product called the “Plus White 5-Minute Premier Whitening System.” I couldn’t resist and decided to try it. Here’s my experience. Maybe it will help you out next time you’re browsing through the toothpaste isle.
The Plus White 5-Minute Premier Whitening System came in a 2.0 oz. tube that cost just a little under $6. Because this product was quite affordable, I was very skeptical about its effectiveness and was sure that I was setting myself up for a disappointment. However, to ease my curiosity, I went home and instantly tried it. The tube was filled with a translucent gel that would’ve resembled hair gel if it wasn’t for the strong minty scent.
After drying my teeth with a paper towel, I applied a layer of the gel to the front my top and bottom teeth. I used a cotton swab to do this, although after several applications, I resorted to using my toothbrush, which was much quicker. The instructions said to apply the gel for 5 minutes, twice a day. For severely stained teeth, it was recommended to leave it on for up to 20 minutes. I did this religiously for two weeks, although I might have skipped a day here and there. After each application, I rinsed my mouth with cool water and went about my day.
To my surprise, after using the gel for the first time, my teeth appeared a little whiter. Mind you, my teeth were already quite white. I’m just an individual who’s obsessed with having the whitest teeth possible. The gel was gentle on my gums and didn’t trigger any discomfort. A nice addition was that the minty flavor of the gel instantly gave me fresh breath and made my mouth feel extra clean. I would definitely buy this gel again. Matter of fact, I still use it to this day, but only for touch ups. Whenever I feel like my teeth appear a bit discolored, I apply the gel for instant whitening action.
