- 8 Feb 2011
I saw a recent photo and my teeth were looking pretty yellow. I drink several cups of coffee a day and the yellowing was probably a result of aging and the coffee.
After reading the reviews, I was pretty anxious about it as my teeth were sensitive to the whitening trays provided by a different dentist. I have been back now from the dentist after treatment for only about an hour.
I was instructed to take ibuprofen prior to coming in as well as to bring an iPod. I don't know whether they helped to offset the discomfort by keeping my mind off of what was going on, but I really didn't feel much of anything other than mild pressure at times. I did get a bit of pain in two of my lower teeth during the fourth fifteen minute session, but nothing that lasted more than several sessions. I have had a couple of very mild what I guess might be considered "zingers" since then.
My results were only three shades lighter, which I had hoped would have been better, but we'll see whether the whitening gel that I also received will help improve. I'd also be interested to see whether anyone notices the change. Time will tell.

I was planning on taking a trip and worried about having the procedure prior to going. (before reading the reviews) The entire process was explained, what I might experience and suggested that because some experience problems, I might want to wait. Once I was there again I was explained what was going to take place and was told to make sure if I experienced any discomfort to let her know. She did a great job packing the mouth and securing my gums. After each session she explained what was going to take place, how I felt and whether we wanted to continue. Great communication always helps!
