My Teeth Are So Much Whiter - Tampa Bay, FL

The procedure was pain free and my teeth got a lot whiter. For the rest of the day my teeth were very sensitive and hurt quite a bit but all pain & discomfort was gone by the next day. READ MORE

What to expect - New York, NY

For 300 bucks it was worth it. It didn't hurt, it took an hour and my teeth lightened 10 shades (so they said) but looked best 2 weeks after the whitening. I was/am a smoker It only lasted about 3 years. And now I need it again. I'm sure you could get a home whitening kit from your... READ MORE

Teeth Whitening Brightened my Smile and the Pain Was Minimal

I had my teeth whitened twice. The first time was about 6 years ago. I did it again about October of 2009. I really don't understand how people describe it as "excruciating" or painful. It's more annoying then anything else. The process of sitting there with a light in your... READ MORE

THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER - Worst Experience Ever - New York, NY

THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER. I called their 800 number on the website to make an appointment. I was given an appointment of my choice rightaway in one of NYC locations and my credit card was charged immediately. Day before my appointment, I called the location and was told that I had no...

Wouldn't Do It Again

Britesmile wasn't that uncomfortable during the procedure but for 24 hours afterward my teeth hurt constantly and I had periodic stabbing pains that would stop me in my tracks. I expected some discomfort, so this wasnt a big deal for me.However, though I followed the diet rules and cut off... READ MORE

I've had it done 3 time in LA. - Loved It - Los Angeles, CA

I've had it done 3 time in LA, if I get x-rays too he gives a huge discount. People comment that it looks great. It helps if you maintain it with home whitening though. It only took an hour and I watched a movie during the process. READ MORE

Very Unhappy! No Visible Results.

Me and my fiancee decided to get our teeth whitening together.They gave us $50 off per person so we spent $350 per person plus $35 each for the whitening pen. We could not see any visible results our teeth felt cleaner that's about it...waste of money! I can see why they try to get you... READ MORE

Worth It but Hurts....

I recently went under the Brite Smile treatment. I was asked to brush my teeth with a special toothpaste before I went under the treatment. The treatment is divided in three 20 minute parts. Every time a cycle ends, the gel on your teeth is reapplied and you start again. The first 20 minutes... READ MORE

Britesmile Made a Big Difference for Me.

A friend posted a picture of me on Facebook from last weekend and I just couldn't stand it anymore. I scheduled an appointment with my dentist that day and really didn't know what treatment I was getting. I figured anything is better then these yellow teeth. So it turns out it was Brite Smile...

Brite Smile is Wonderful - Teeth Were Yellow from Red Wine and Coffee

My teeth were fairly yellow from red wine and coffee so I had Brite Smile done about 4 years ago.I am surprised to see how many people have had pain (my step-daughter had to have them stop the procedure, but I'm not sure she was using Brite Smile). I had no pain. It was done in my dentist's... READ MORE

Very Happy With Results - But There Is A Fair Amount Of Pain

I'm surprised at the comments of people who said that they saw little or no improvement. I was beyond amazed with the results as was my wife - she couldn't believe the improvement. I didn't even bother to ask how many shades my teeth improved because the difference was blindingly obvious -... READ MORE

Brite Smile Led to Excrutiating Pain

Even if the procedure had lasting effects - which it did not - it would not have been worth the pain I experienced. I had excruciating pain that started about one hour after the treatment and lasted a day. It was the most horrible pain I have experienced in decades. During the procedure, the... READ MORE

Results No Better Than Strips.

Had this done spur of the moment in LA. I didn't really notice much difference, but my teeth were pretty white already. No one else even noticed or said anything so I wouldn't spend the money to have this procedure done again. I would go to CVS and buy white strips. READ MORE

Tooth Sensitivity, but Very Happy with Results :)

I just had my teeth done yesterday at the Walton location in Chicago. I'm 8 shades lighter. Started at C1 and went to the third lightest veneer color!! My teeth look beautiful :) Of course, I DID NOT have tetracycline stains, which I understand are very difficult to lighten. The staff... READ MORE

Not Worth It at All; Whitening Effect Diminished After Only One Week

I had my teeth whitened about 7 weeks ago. The treatment consisted of four, 10-minute sessions. My caregiver was very gentle and took lots of care to protect my gums with some clear gooey protectant. I did not have the gum pain that others experienced. After the third session, the tooth... READ MORE

Brite Smile Was Not Worth It

I rarely ever fight a charge but this was ridiculous. I paid $200.00 and was told at the boutique I used that my teeth would look considerably whiter. I had smoked for 15 years, had braces as a kid, and was the type of kid whom hated to brush their teeth. I took a photo of my teeth before and... READ MORE

It Looked Great for About 4 Months

I had Britesmile done about three years ago. It took longer than one hour. I was able to wear these glasses that showed me a movie, so it was more like 2.5 hours It became somewhat sensitive during the Britesmile treatment, somewhat like little sharp jabs of your nerves.  Typical of... READ MORE


I read some of these reviews and I am stunned. I had this done in January of 2002 and this is now December of 2008, almost 7 years later and my teeth are as white as they can get. They are whiter than the chart they give you. I drink a pot of coffee a day and they are as white as the day I got... READ MORE
