Hi everyone! Hope you are doing well and looking forward to the weekend! Today I have a product to show you by the brand Opalescence, that specialises in teeth whitening. The treatment I tested was the take home pack called Go 6%, an affordable whitening treatment that contains 6% hydrogen peroxide, and is so powerful and effective it is only dispensed by dentists. The way it works is that the powerful whitening gel comes in a prefilled, disposable tray that is simply inserted into the mouth and worn for an hour.
This product was super easy to use but did require a few tasks to be done before and after the application. The packaging says it must be refrigerated when not in use, but when you are intending on using the product you must let it cool to room temperature so you will need to plan in advance if you want to do it that night. It is ideal to do at night once you have finished eating because you need to brush your teeth straight after. Each tray has the letter T and B for top and bottom so you place them in your mouth, over your teeth and gently suck to make the gel adhere to the teeth. Once it feels securely placed you can take the plastic layer off the top of each tray and let it sit in your mouth for about an hour. After an hour it feels a bit funny as you're used to having something in your mouth restricting your teeth from fully closing but that quickly goes back to normal. I then brushed my teeth and examined my teeth. One thing I noticed actually was that some of my teeth had small whiter dots on them compared to the whole tooth, but this completely disappeared by the morning. I definitely noticed my teeth are much whiter than before and look great! It has been a month since I've used my last tray and i'm very happy with the results.

I really enjoyed using this product and will definitely be using it when I notice my teeth start to become less white, it is a much quicker alternative to whitening toothpastes or pens and it caused me no sensitivity at all!
