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.
