I was so excited to find newly launched teeth whitening lozenges from Nuvora. I have never met a tooth whitening tray that I’ve liked. Bleaching strips slip. Go Smile requires patient rubbing. I am unable to use Watt’s whitening kit without getting lung fulls of bleach and unable to buy Target’s no-slip wraps online. But with Nuvorawhite, all I had to do was suck my stains away.

After two lozenges a day for 18 days, I have concluded that at $59.99 these are the most expensive breath fresheners known to woman.

In a pilot study, Nuvorawhite achieved an average of 7.8 shades improvement in 12 days – about the same as existing home-whitening products. This was not proven by my pilot study of one. My teeth didn't whiten with this product at all, despite the active whitening ingredient carbamide peroxide.

The other ingredients are essential oils, xylitol to kill bacteria, and zinc to freshen the breath. These do work, I believe. In fact, the other day my eye doctor commented on the pleasant whiff coming from my breath and asked me what I what brand of gum I used. This was definitely a first for me and given all the other reactions he might have had, I felt rather pleased. It doesn't justify sixty bucks though. Well maybe if I was in love with my eye doctor and wanted to seduce him right there on the fancy optomoetrist's chair..... Actually, not even.
