Do NOT floss then whiten. Also do not use a hard or stiff bristle brush then whiten. Your gums will not be happy and it will be very uncomfortable or painful.

Close to the same but not quite. Woot has the Pro version up (stronger peroxide) and its the extended treatment version as well.

Always floss. The bleaching agent has to come into contact with the tooth, or else you will have spotty results. That's what I read.

Tooth-fer Tuesday? Funny, Woot, but it's still no two-fer Tuesday.

So does the whitening effect decrease if I do not use right away. Say I bought it now but did not use for 6 months. Is it still effective? Thanks

I think we should all remember the best piece of advice-

Don't use products like this without consulting your local dentist.

It may/may not be for you. Give them a call, and see what they think.

EricPost

You have to use common sense. Products like these are for people with basically healthy teeth. The more mouth issues you have the more likely you are to encounter problems.

First of all, I would not use this as a first whitening treatment. Buy a product with less peroxide strength. Then if you have no issues with that, try this. Some people cannot tolerate 20+% peroxide, some can.

Second, if you have receding gums, peroxide will hurt. Anything with peroxide will hurt. So again use common sense.

Third no tooth whitening product works on caps, fillings or bridges. If you have this, you'll have issues. You must get the cap or bridge replaced with a lighter color or the filling redone.

Fourth, any whitening product will wear off, meaning you'll have to re-whiten. So the more you whiten the more you're likely to have sensitivity.

Lastly, no tooth whitening product gives you that white, white, WHITE, celebrity smile. Those are veneers and/or caps.

Bottom line, I'd start with less peroxide strength and if that causes you no worries, move up to this.

"Professional Dental Whitening"
Professional? Applied by rank amateurs? At home?

"Professional" has lost all meaning (long before its misuse here). "Sonic" is the other buzzword that is thrown around needlessly.

If I want professional whitening, I'll go to...a professional (or whatever they'll call themselves to differentiate them from a plastic tray and tube of goop sold at an 88% (!) discount).

Had my teeth whitened at my dentist 5+ years ago. Didn't realize how bad my teeth looked until I went back and looked at before pictures. $30 is a cheap price to pay for a non yellow smile.
The dentist was $200+, not sure if the "at home" kits are ever as good. You get what you pay for.

I read this too...it only made me want to buy the product even more!!! If these guys weren't in financial trouble the product would be up for $170! Their misfortune is our killer deal. Take advantage while these guys are still afloat, I say. It isn't like you are doing business with them directly...Woot did that for us.

MORNING ALL.

I delete some posts that were linking price comps to different versions of this product.

This product isn't sold elsewhere. Ours is different because:

It's 30% carbamide peroxide instead of 22% you see elsewhere

It has 22 treatments instead of the 11 you see elsewhere

Found an interesting study that said: "Thirty percent carbamide bleaching gels effectively whiten teeth without causing a significant increase in tooth sensitivity or changes in gingival condition. Potassium nitrate has little effect in sensitivity when treatment time is short."

However, in the method section they mentioned using custom trays for each subject so the tray did not extend into the gums. My guess would be that the custom trays and instruction on placement would separate the experience at a dentist vs. at home since the active ingredient is the same and the potassium nitrate didn't make a difference anyways.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19417866

Also from the American Dental Association:
Statement on the Safety and Effectiveness of Tooth Whitening Products

"Both tooth sensitivity and tissue irritation are usually temporary and stop after the treatment."

"The ADA recommends that if you choose to use a bleaching product, you should only do so after consultation with a dentist.  This is especially important for patients with many fillings, crowns, and extremely dark stains."

Thanks for the above. It is dated in 2011… but… still makes me hesitant. REALLY GOOD ARTICLE YOU PROVIDED! Thanks!

BTW - I would just like to add: the higher the peroxide %, the greater chances of having tender gums and/or blisters to the tissues in your mouth.

I found this out the hard way 10/years ago. Last year I forgot to purchase the lower % of peroxide due to my sensativities… the blisters were the worse to date.

30% Carbamide is pretty mild. It's about equivalent to 10% Hydrogen peroxide when it breaks down and starts working. (this information brought to you by a soon to be dentist who just covered her whitening module)

As has been mentioned several times: check with your dentist before using any kind of "whitening" product.

Whitening quotes because, well, you've heard the term peroxide blonde? Same thing. Whitening and bleaching kits use carbamide peroxide which when mixed with water becomes hydrogen peroxide. A 15% solution of carbamide peroxide becomes a ~5% solution hydrogen peroxide in your mouth. PRO's 30% solution carbamide becomes a ~10% solution hydrogen peroxide. This is REALLY strong and can burn your gums and mucous membranes. I'm not exaggerating.

If you drink tea, coffee, soda or wine then don't bother with a whitening kit. The tannins in these drinks will re-stain your teeth in short order. If you smoke then don't bother. Different chemicals, same result.

If you want to save yourself a pile of money then you can, after consulting your dentist, make your own teeth whitening paste:

Mix 1 part baking soda with 2 parts 3% hydrogen peroxide. The bottles say for external use only but 3% is safe for oral use and shouldn't cause excessive sensitivity. Just don't swallow it. Adjust quantities until you achieve a consistency similar to commercial tooth paste. Mix in a drop or two of mint extract to make it taste not so nasty. Use an ordinary tooth brush to spread the paste across your teeth surfaces. Let sit for 2 minutes then rinse with water. Then brush normally with regular tooth paste to clean out the peroxide paste. Do this once a week.

It won't be as effective as the "professional" home kit. On the other hand, it won't cost nearly as much, you can (probably) do it every week for the rest of your life, and it'll look far more natural. Your teeth will look like your teeth rather than something you bought from woot!.

This product ships with an 18 month expiration date. If you refrigerate the whitening gel, it will prolong the shelf life and keep it fresher.

[quote postid="5507823" as one Syringe filled with 30% Carbamide Peroxide whitening gel,

That's the same Peroxide that's in the OTC ear wax softener products I tell my patients to use, however, I'm sure it's nowhere near 30% - but I bet this would dissolve earwax like a flame through butter-- leaving a beautiful gleaming white ear canal as well !!

Can't say anything about this particular product..but I just finished a 3 week set of a 32% carabmide peroxide take-home treatment from my dentist. I paid a damn lot more than this deal, but I also had custom mouth trays made for me..

I had about a 2-3 shade lighter look. I was also a smoker for 16 years before 2011, so I wasn't starting with perfection.

I'd say if you can get good fitting trays, and this 30% solution, it might be something to try..but DO NOT expect overnight results, nor can you expect 15 years of neglect to go away with only one treatment, or supply of gel. It may take 2-3 full treatments before you get to what you want to see.

My plan was this: Rinse with water, floss, brush, rinse again. Put gel in trays, and keep in mouth without spitting for 10 minutes. Then another 5-10 minutes after a quick spit, which is required as it tends to incrwae salivation. Then rinse and a quick brush again.

The gel works by "exploding" the stains away as the gel reacts to the oxygen in the air around it. You want to floss and brush first to maximize the cleanest start, and then brush again after to remove any microscopic sediment still clinging away.

cheers.

thanks but I tend to like finding my own reviews. better chance of being non-biased.
plus if this product is sold exclusively on woot! your link is to a different product and should be removed.

and if consumers really "loved" your products you probably wouldn't be here selling products at almost 90% off.

Our product has been designed to minimize sensitivity. The gel found in this system is water-based to prevent tooth dehydration that can lead to sensitivity. Furthermore, our Brush-On Applicator allows you to place the whitening gel directly on the tooth surfaces and limit contact with soft tissue.

It's worth remembering that just because they want to price their product at $170, that doesn't make it worth $170. Anyone can ask for any price they want for a product, but it is only worth what people are willing to pay.

If $170 was a reasonable market price for the product, it would likely be selling better and they wouldn't need to dump it. If people are only buying it at $15, that makes it worth $15.

Note: I'm not saying that this product is bad or not worth purchasing. Just be aware that it is a very common practice in most sales industries to set an artificially high "Suggested Retail Price" so that consumers will feel like they're getting a good deal when they see it available at a significant discount.

I would not use these (yeah, put onto my teeth a powerful oxidizer) but if you want to make your own teeth whitening strips here your go: get 20 parts starch, add to hydrogen peroxide to 5 parts H2O2, 7 parts propylene glycol or glycerol (NOT ethylene glycol), rest water to 100p.

Mix mix mix ... then pour and level solution out on tray. Let tray air dry or place into 180F oven.

use potato starch .. alt to starch = sodium alginate, pullulan,other water soluble resin

now you have teeth whitening strips you made yourself.
