So I have a friend that is majorly annoying. Every time I see her, I always ask her if she’s had her teeth whitened, in which she responses “No, everyone asks me that. My teeth are naturally like this.” I still don’t know if she is telling the truth or not, I mean, how unfair that some people in the world are blessed with sparkling white knashers?
I don’t make life much easier for myself. I only drink green tea, English breakfast tea, sweetened coffees, diet coke, red wine and amaretto and coke on a weekly basis. I know I know – who do I think I am? Truth be told, I can’t stand water although I’ll force it down me when I have to, and cordial and other forms of cold drinks I just can’t stand.
So my teeth get a bit of a battering when it comes to discolouring. No matter how many times a day I brush them, they need that little bit extra than just a whitening toothpaste.
I’ve been doing some research lately into other methods to brighten and whiten my smile. In a nutshell, I’m looking for a celebrity like smile which gives me a those gleaming teeth like that annoying friend I just mentioned. If I could rack up the compliments of ‘have you have your teeth whitened?’, I’d punch the air with my fist.
So, after copious amounts of internet research, I think I’ve found the one I’m going for.
It’s called Snow Teeth Whitening, which uses an LED teeth whitening mouth guard to quickly whiten your teeth in 10 minutes, without all the harmful side effects that other systems often have. And if you’re prone to sensitive teeth (which I’m not but it’s always good to know) you can add on a teeth desensitizing serum.
After reading lots of reviews, scrolling through blog posts and finding some fab before and after shots on Instagram, I now have this Snow Teeth Whitening brand as the one on my list to get for whiter teeth. I’m thinking of asking for it as an early Christmas present, as I’ve spied they have a fantastic Black Friday offer:
You can currently get 50% off the Snow Teeth Whitening award-winning kit, which comes with 12-months worth of the world’s most advanced proprietary teeth whitening serum, plus the original patented LED activating technology. They say that Snow’s new professional formula is more effective than any other system on the market, so I’m literally intrigued like crazy.
The below photos show my teeth before and after I was really trying to improve the whiteness. I was cutting out caffiene, brushing with whitening toothpaste three times a day and literally eating/drinking non-stainable foods.
The improvement looks good, but it didn’t last, and the amount of life changing effort and lifestyle ammends I have to do for the slight lift was insane (and definitely not manageable). So, as it usually retails for £231 but it’s now down to £115 for a Black Friday treat, what does the kit involve?
LED Light – the main item! The LED Lighting system which comes in a case makes it easy to pop in your mouth and over your teeth.

I’m so eager to try the LED Light device, but also to use the whitening wands to, to see how they deal with my green tea build up!
Honestly, the results I’ve seen across various blog posts and instagram posts too look incredible, so I’m feeling positive this might be the only device for me that’s going to effectively work (without relying on cutting out caffeine and scrubbing my teeth with whitening pastes at various points of the day).
There are 4 ways in which this works, which I’ve numbered below:
- Clean: Brush your teeth for two minutes using circular motions. When finished, floss and rinse.
- Apply Serum: Twist up the wand and apply serum to each tooth – paint each tooth as you would your nails!
- Whiten With The LED: Once the serum has been applied to your teeth, plug the LED light into your device and put the mouthpiece in. Keep the light in for 10-30 minutes (time varies based on your desired whiteness)
- Rinse: After whitening for your desired length of time, unplug and remove the light from your mouth. Rinse both the light and your mouth, and voila! You’re done!
If you start to see me with blinding white teeth over on Instagram from December onwards, you’ll know exactly what is to thank…
Alternatively, you can of course decide to pay a visit to the Cosmetic dentist in Hampton to get your teeth professionally whitened as well, if you would rather leave it to the professionals!
