One Simple Tooth Whitening System for a Brighter Smile
I have tried many products for whitening my teeth. I have used whitening strips, custom trays, in-office whitening and whitening toothpaste. Pretty much … I have tried it all. Part of my problem is the amount of coffee and (hot and iced) tea that I drink that is a major part of why I am unable to maintain a white smile for long.
Recently, I have tried a new, simple whitening system that has really been a game changer for me.
Spa Dent Naturals Advanced Light Activated System.
This home whitening kit is a gentle whitening system that I have recently used to get my pearly whites to sparkle when I smile.
I love this product because it has natural ingredients and the best part … NO SENSITIVITY! Most whitening products I have used either get my teeth or gums pretty sensitive. But I did not have this problem using this product.

Let me share with you the process I took to get my smile whiter in a short amount of time.
My process for whitening with the Spa Dent Naturals Whitening System
I started by brushing twice a day with the Cleaning and Whitening Paste exclusively (morning and night) with my Oral B Genius 2 days prior to beginning the whitening with the LED light.
Load the tray
The directions call for evening use, but the way my life is step up right now … mornings are the best time for me to get anything done. After eating breakfast, I brush and floss.
I found it easier to load up the tray by placing 3 dots of the gel. 2 near the back teeth and 1 in the font at the center. Then take a damp q-tip and spread the gel across. This helped me make sure that I am not wasting a lot of product.
Insert the tray and turn on the light
I insert the tray and push the tray against my teeth to make sure that the gel is actually on my teeth. Then, I clip in the light and press the blue button to start the first round of 10 minutes.
I like the way the light stays in place and you don’t have to hold it. Once the light is clipped into place, I will do my morning routine with includes tidying up upstairs, the kid’s room and my bedroom. I may even start a load of laundry and then the light goes off.
Once the light goes off, I start the light again for another 10 minutes session and finish up whatever I am doing. The light stays in place very well so you can just set t and forget it.
Remove tray and rinse
Once the last session is over I take the tray out and rinse with water only. I didn’t eat or drink for at least an hour.
For three days in a row, I did this and saw an immediate improvement. I took a few days off and then did two more sessions two days in a row. I took another week off. Then did two more sessions and got the results that I personally wanted.
What helped keep my smile bright
The one thing that I believe helped the most was using the Whitening and Aftercare Gel morning and night. I decided to use the product exclusively and put away my Crest toothpaste and Listerine Total Care (that I love very much).
I really love the way my mouth and gums feel after using Listerine Total Care. As a result, I was a little hesitant about not using my Listerine while I was whitening because I had a slight case of gingivitis on the top right side of my mouth.
GASP. The dentist has gingivitis!! Yes, it’s true.
The Listerine Total Care helps kill the germs that cause gingivitis and keep my gums feeling great. Surprisingly, my gums felt great after using this whitening system. And the gingivitis is no longer a problem.
What makes this LED different
Part of why my gums did well has to do with the ingredients in the whitening gel and the light. The light is a Red and Blue LED light.
The blue light activates the peroxide and accelerates the whitening. Then red light stimulates cell growth and heals oral tissue.
Pretty cool, right?
The light is not UV and there is no heat, plus its rechargeable. Click To Tweet
The light is not UV and there is no heat. The other thing that I love about this light is that it is rechargeable. I put it right next to my Oral B Genius so that it is ready for me to touch up with whitening again when I’m ready.
Don’t do this when you are using the kit …
The tray fits pretty well and again I love how the light stays in place. One thing that I notice that I was doing was biting into the tray instead of just letting my teeth rest on the tray.
As a result of me biting into the tray, the tray put pressure on the roof of my mouth and made the roof of my mouth uncomfortable for a few minutes. But it was no biggie. It was only uncomfortable for a short time.
Wondering if you should use a customing fitting tray?
I know that the instructions say that a custom tray is not required, but you can definitely give it a try if you have one. I did use it for one session. It helped me to only use just enough of the gel and not waste any product.
The only problem is there is not the convenience of clipping the light into place and cleaning up around the house while you wait. You will have to sit and hold the light in place for 20 minutes.
20 minutes is a long time when you are waiting.Click To Tweet
The verdict is …
I went up almost 4 shades on the Self Assessment Guide and I only whitened with the light 7 times! And I didn’t use it for 7 consecutive days. That is huge.
Overall, I will give this product 2 thumbs up and continue using it as I have a wedding that I am in this year that I want to make sure my smile is sparkling.
