SuperSmile = super flop!

"Order in the next 3 minutes and we'll even include free shipping and handling."  Normally this is the time I compose myself and change the channel.  Unfortunately, midnight and bleary-eyed madness from a sleepless baby put me in a less than rational mindset and led me to an act of desperation.... I picked up the phone. 

Over the next 30 days, I pursued a devastating love affair with my bathroom mirror.  Each morning and night, I swished, mixed, gooped, and scrubbed my way to what should have been a smile to rival any magazine cover!  In the end, instead of a brilliant white smile and praise from all my peers, I found myself defeated and ready to send rotten eggs to the station that allowed the ad for Supersmile to ever be aired.
                                                   
As a hygienist, I am always looking for ways to stay current on all the dental products available to my patients.  I am often asked about whitening tips and for my personal reviews of various products.  So when I saw an ad for a whitening product claiming to be able to even whiten crowns, I just had to see for myself.  

Supersmile may work for some, but for this hygienist, I found it to be more trouble than it was worth.

The package arrived full of toothpaste tubes and activating rods that look like qtips, step by step instructions that I had to read each time so as not to get confused, and a toothbrush that I think may have been intended for another client who had ordered a grout cleaning kit.  After 30 days of pre-rinsing, scrubbing my gums away with the hardest toothbrush ever made, concocting a toothpaste that I had to premix each time, and occasionally using activating rods that were meant to accelerate the process.... disappointment was all I received.  My smile was no whiter than when I started.
 
So when it comes to the product Supersmile, I would say that it isn't worth your time or money.  There are a lot of great whitening products out there.  In my opinion, this just isn't one of them.  I would be more than happy to recommend some great options if you are ever in the office.  At Imagine Dentistry, we offer several whitening packages including one called TresWhite that only requires 10 days!  We can provide custom fit bleaching trays as well as in-office whitening for those who just can't wait to shine.
