I’m obsessed with white teeth. I admire them on friends, I admire them on TV and magazines and then I look at my own beige-ish coloured teeth and feel less than dazzled. I feel undazzled. I feel I cannot be the glowing picture of health that I so want to be with such undazzling teeth. Who would you listen to for health and fitness advice? The girl with gleaming pearly whites or the girl with the stained yellow teeth? Yeah, I thought so.
So when the opportunity to purchase the BDazzled teeth whitening system at half price came up, I lept at it eagerly. No this wasn’t a second hand deal (ew), it was from a reputable site called ozsale.com.au. Visit at your own peril, it’s addictive. You have been warned.
My kit finally arrived in the post today (late!) and I was so excited to get it home and try it out. I watched the YouTube clip, I read the booklet and I scoured the site. I was ready. Oh how I was ready. I would have done it right there in the office but decided that was a little too weird. Even for me.
It came in a neat little purple zipper case with 3 normal teeth whitening tubes, one booster tube, teeth moulds, a little plastic case for the teeth moulds, syringe tips, an instructional DVD and booklets.
The instructions state that you must dunk the teeth moulds in boiling water first, insert into the mouth and then use sucking motions to mould the guard to your teeth. This was a little difficult at first because of my notoriously small mouth (yes yes I’m fully aware that I’m a verbal big mouth at times! Don’t even try to crack that one!) but I soon got a pretty good mould of my teeth and was ready for the next step.
Now, for the first 2 days you are supposed to use a booster which is an express whitening tube to prepare for the teeth whitening process. You then move on to the normal treatment tubes. So, as directed, I squeezed a small amount into the upper and lower teeth moulds and inserted them into my mouth. Immediately I start salivating like a rabid dog but apparently this is normal for the first few days. Just don’t leave the house with it on as you may be shot with a tranquilizer dart.
The instructions say that you complete this process for 30 mins, twice a day for 2 – 3 weeks.
I take the mould out when the 30 minutes is up and a bucket load of saliva expells from my mouth. I do really hope that settles down because it is totally gross y’all.
I see a slight difference after the first go, nothing to write home about (“Dear Mother and Father, I did not notice much of a change in my first go at teeth whitening. Just thought you should know. Love always, your daughter.” No. This is exactly what you would NOT do) but I am excited to see what happens over the next few days.
I’ve added below a pic of my before teeth (with added nostrils).
I’ll keep the blog updated as I notice changes!
