My BLEACHBRIGHT™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening experience

Last night I went to get my teeth whitened an early birthday present to myself.
I had a $45 birthday credit at Caryl Baker Visage which is also where I get my eyebrows done and I decided to use it on their new BLEACHBRIGHT™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Service.
Priced regularly at $99.00 and $85.00 for beauty club members (which I am).

I was skeptical but since I had the credit I thought id just try it and see what happens.
I sat in the chair as one of my fav girls there Josie set me up in this contraption. She placed trays in my mouth and then placed me in front of this light machine.


I sat like that for 20 mins and although I cant say it was super comfy because the saliva was piling up in my mouth and I didn't want to swallow, it wasn't anything I couldn't handle. 20 minutes really isn't that long so I just tried not to focus on my mouth too much. I tweeted, sent this pic to the Mr, listen to conversations in the store and looked around and the products on the shelves to pass the time.

When my 20 mins were up I was asked to spit everything including the mouth piece into a paper towel until I felt all the solution was out of my mouth. This was the worst part cuz you can taste it all and it doesn't taste too good. After I was done with that I was given a finger brush up sleeve and asked to rub it all over my teeth. This helped a lot with the taste.

And Voila I was done! I was told that there may be calcium spots but that they would go away in a few hours. In total the whitening came to $54 (with my discount) and I went up approx 3 shades in color which is pretty good if you ask me. My top front teeth have always been whiter than the rest due to braces but this really whitened the bottom and side teeth that were way more yellow then Id care to admit.

I ended up buying the after care stick because really whats the point if you aren't going to maintain it right? It was approx $30 (reg $39) cuz again I was able to use my 20% member birthday discount.


Here is the before and after shot... not the greatest its more of a contrast in person but you get the idea.


I'm totally satisfied with how it turned out on me. There was zero sensitivity in my gums and although the tip of my tongue felt a bit numb for 20 mins after it went away and I've had no side effects since. This morning after brushing I used the touch up stick which I think I will use every morning or every other morning as it only takes 5 minutes. I feel more confident with my smile now and I cant wait to show off that smile on my brithday this weekend!

If you are looking for an affordable way to get your teeth 2-4 shades whiter I would definitely look into BLEACHBRIGHT™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Service at a Caryl Baker Visage near you!
