Before I decided to give Luster One Hour White Tooth Whitening Light System a try. I’ve had my teeth professionally bleached, and I’ve slapped on Crest Whitestrips on occasion, but this was new. Initial Thoughts: While the box clearly states 1 hour, I didn’t expect that I’d actually be busy for the entire time. The program recommends between 10-20 treatments during the first whitening, each treatment lasting 2-minutes. Step 1: Brush and floss. Easy enough. Step 2: Rinse with the Accelerator Mouth Rinse. Tasted pretty bad.Step 3: Apply the Whitening Gel to your front teeth the way you would nail polish. See photo. Step 4: Once the polish is set, turn the Whitening Light on, and hold in front of your teeth for two minutes. Don’t worry, it automatically shuts off after 120 seconds, so you don’t have to count. The outer edges of the light have a rubber shell, which makes for a much softer grip if your facial muscles give out and you want to hold it in your mouth. I was really happy to be done with the first treatment, and the thought of finishing nine more was daunting. After Final Thoughts: I can’t imagine having completed 20 2-minute treatments; 10 took long enough. I was, however, very impressed with the results. The photos are bad (I’m sorry!), but I started at about a 6 or 7, and after 10 treatments I was at about a 3. I’m sure I could have gone whiter, but I just didn’t have the patience for another round. So here’s the fun part, I’m giving away the same kit! To Enter: Tell me your favorite guilty pleasure, something you know your dentist would not be happy about! Answer in the comments section below.

Reply Maureen August 11, 2009 My guilty pleasure is staying up long after everyone else is asleep, even on work nights. Sounds simple, or not quite a guilty pleasure?? I’ll stay up until 3 AM sometimes. I am robbing myself of required sleep, but I usually nap a wee bit after work. There is this sense of freedom from the business of life and interacting with people, plus the quiet of the night is enjoyable. AND, I can get all sorts of tidying done without interuptions. 🙂 Reply Kristina Bailey August 11, 2009 When I was a teen I had to go to back to the ortho because my braces had all “fallen” off. I had really plucked em off one night with the help of a butter knife because I was so sick of the pain! Reply Monique Cardinaux August 11, 2009 Chewing ice is my guilty pleasure!
