Reviewed: Go Smile teeth whitening products

February 23, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 3 Comments
Europeans are deservedly best known for their ugly royals and bad teeth. So it is with all due humility that I recommend a teeth whitening product.

There is really nothing very fancy about Go Smile. It is just hydrogen peroxide (and iodine). The insight of the dentist that brought it to market is that don't need that much hydrogen peroxide (bleach) to get white teeth. So you don't have sit around wearing some device whilst trying not swallow. More importantly, the sensitive of teeth and gums (me) can use Go Smile without any discomfort. Most importantly, it works. Even for people who drink black coffee and red wine (that would be me, again).

I found that it is a good idea to use one ampoule a day for the first week. Thereafter, I was able to cut back to twice weekly maintenance. The other day my dentist complemented me on my teeth. True, she is Russian.

I have also switched to Go Smile toothpaste. In a crude attempt to make you buy two tubes there is one for morning and one for evening brushing. I use PM for both. The whitening agent is white cranberry powder. I bought my husband a tube the other day (he was beginning to look like a recent immigrant from the Ukraine). There was a noticeable improvement within four days.

    Hi Maureen,
    That is a good suggestion and we will try to cross-reference our opinion of products a bit more. In the meantime, I think Target is way better value and will be switching when my stash of Go Smile runs out. I'll ask Copley to weigh in too.

    Would you suggest the Target Whitening Wax or the GoSmile Whitening product?

    I'm new to this site and love, love, love it! I wish on your reviews when it's not a "top 5" or such, you could still rate the product in terms of results so the readers could compare it to another similar product you've also tried. Such as these whitening products...I now both work and "recommended" for lack of a better word, but which would you rate better?
