Review: HiSmile Teeth Whitening Kit (with Before & After Pics)

Review: HiSmile Teeth Whitening Kit (with Before & After Pics)

Wanna know something weird about me?  Seeing people brush their teeth sends me absolutely crazy.  I think it's more the sound of it, it's like nails down a chalk board and I absolutely hate it.  I don't know if you watched Married At First Sight this year but there was a scene where Troy was just scrubbing away at his teeth that nearly made me vomit.  Even typing the last paragraph is making me feel all tingly and yuck!!  Haha okay, I totally know that it's weird but I just wanted to preface this blog post with the knowledge that I don't really like talking about teeth or mouths so I'm gonna try get this review done as quickly and factually as possible.

When HiSmile offered to send me a teeth whitening kit to try out and review I was stoked because I've wanted to whiten my teeth for ages but going to the dentist to get it done is pretty pricey and I was pretty sceptical of how well the at-home teeth whitening kits actually worked.  HiSmile have thousands of positive reviews online so I thought it was worth a try.

What's Included
The Teeth Whitening Kit promises to whiten teeth up to eight shades in six, ten minute applications.  Sounds pretty simple hey.  The kit has three vials of whitening gel (six uses), a mouth guard and an LED light.  The LED light actually fits into the mouth guard so you don't have to hold it in place and it turns itself off after 10 minutes which are both pretty handy little features.

My Experience
I had absolutely no problems applying the gel and wearing the mouthguard for 10 mins.  It wasn't uncomfortable and fitted into my mouth with no problems.  The gel tastes minty like toothpaste and I didn't get any sensitivity in my teeth following the application (some teeth whitening products can cause sensitivity).

When I took my before pictures I decided to only whiten my top teeth so I would be able to clearly see the difference at the end of my six uses.  My bottom teeth don't show when I smile or anything so I knew it wouldn't look too weird and I could just do the bottom teeth once my six days were up to even them out.  I did six applications over six days to my top teeth only and unfortunately there was absolutely no difference.  I took my after pics at the same time of day and in the same place to get the lighting as much the same as possible but as you can see in the pic below there is barely a difference. (Remember that only my top teeth have had the whitening kit applied, not my bottom teeth at all)

Unfortunately the HiSmile Teeth Whitening Kit didn't work for me.  I actually ended up using a total of 11 applications (because I hadn't used any on my bottom teeth) before I gave up and realised it just wasn't going to work. The kit retails for $80 and you can see more details on their website 

Have you ever had any success with whitening your teeth?  I'd love to hear any recommendations you have?

  1. I have found similar experiences with teeth whitening kits. No matter how many times I use them, they don’t do much for me. They might look great immediately after I’ve used the gel, but by the time I’ve eaten it had something to drink, they’ve gone back to their original colour :/

  2. That sucks it didn’t work for you

  3. It’s a shame they didn’t work out for you. I was always keen to try them out for myselves. I’ve heard mixed reviews about them

  4. Some toothbrushes are made specifically to help reach these teeth fully. Take advantage of these tools.
