I’m always on a hunt to find a really effective tooth whitening product without forking out hundreds to have my teeth whitened professionally. Alas, despite the fact that I always buy the products with rave reviews, when tested most actually don’t work in the way that is promised. Well, this time I had the pleasure of trying out the new Rapid White Pro Clean & Polish system which according to the box claims to deliver professional quality cleaning and whiter teeth from the first use!
I have to say I was skeptical about this product as there are so many brands that promise whiter results and in my experience, they just never deliver. Fortunately, the Rapid White Pro Clean & Polish System does! I was pleasantly surprised to have noticed a difference, however small, after just the first use. It really does work!
The Rapid White system comes with a main toothbrush body, a plug-in charger, four little green toothpaste pods & two different disposable heads; one to clean and one to polish (It’s recommended that you dispose of these heads & replace with new ones every month). In order to charge your brush you should leave it in the charging pod for 2 hours, alternatively you can blitz charge for 15 minutes for a quick use.
Step one of the process is to attach the cleaning head to the toothbrush body and clean each tooth carefully in turn. In use, I actually found it difficult to clean one tooth at a time without the brush slipping as it has a narrow head, therefore I’d recommend using the toothbrush with both hands for precision and control. If you’re like me you’ll need to be careful around your gum line as bleeding can occur with a slip of your hand, although this should get better as your gum health and technique improves with regular use. The cleaning brush with its narrow head makes it really practical to get into those hard to reach places that a normal toothbrush would miss.
Step two of the process is to attach the polish head; this is a circular rubber tipped head. Personally for me I found this part quite pointless- it’s a step I could quite easily leave out and be okay with. With the polishing head there was no noticeable difference to my teeth compared with the result after step one with the cleaning head; I felt like step one did all the real work.
Step one gives my teeth a really clean feeling, like they’ve been professionally cleaned, so I don’t feel at all let down by the product because of my lack of results with the polishing head. What’s more important to me is that I noticed whiter results after only the first use and because of that this is a product I would recommend to my friends and family. I’ve felt encouraged to use it as much as I can (recommended usage is 1-2 times a week), and my teeth keep on improving and getting whiter because of the regular usage. Best of all, I no longer feel embarrassed or insecure when I’m caught smiling, so I actually do more of that now!
