How much money would you pay to whiten your teeth up to 6 shades in 1 hour? A $40 whitening kit that can be used at home doesn’t sounds bad at all after seeing the ads from cosmetic dentists that charge close to $1,000 just for that.

After receiving the Luster 1 Hour White Kit my husband wanted to try it right away.  His teeth are very sensitive so I was very curious to see if he would experience zero tooth sensitivity as they advertised.

The Luster Kit comes with the following:

  • Activating Whitening Light  & 4 AAA Batteries (love that the batteries are included unlike many other products)
  • Accelerator Mouth Rinse
  • Super Whitener
The 3 Easy Steps
1) Use accelerator mouth rinse for 10 seconds.
2) Brush on whitening gel.
3) Shine activation light on teeth for 2 minutes.

(Repeat the cycle again 10-20 times for up to 1 hour for best results)

We started with the mouth rinse and he was o.k with the taste. He said it had a slight peppermint scent and taste. He used the little plastic cup that was provided in the kit.  Then, he brushed the Super Whitening Gel on his frontal teeth (one at a time) and kept his mouth open and lips away from his teeth (for 2 minutes), that is a bit tricky but the light is great for helping keep the lips open.

The Whitening Light helps stimulate the photo-activator in the gel and you can use the top to rest your lips and keep them open.  One thing we both really liked was that after the two minute cycle ended the light would shut off and beep automatically so we didn’t need to count or check our watches to know when the two minutes were up.

You are supposed to repeat the process ten to twenty times for best results (takes about 1 hour).  My husband did it ten times total (about 1/2 an hour) and saw immediate results.  How many times you have to do it  probably depends on the condition of your teeth to begin with and you may need to do it the twenty times to get better results.

There were no teeth sensitivity issues at all so we are pretty happy with the product and the results. I am thinking about getting one to try for myself now and I am definitively recommending it to friends and family.
