[Review] White Teeth Global Teeth Whitening System

I got asked to review a different teeth whitening system recently (White Teeth Global's Basic Kit, which includes...
  • 1 Syringe (10 ml) of Dental Whitening Gel (22% or 35% Carbamide Peroxide)
  • 2 Teeth Whitening Trays with Container
  • Shade Guide
  • Complete Instructions
Shipping: A couple weeks, tops. The tracked shipping kind of paused a few days over some long holiday weekend. I did the pretend drop into the cart to check shipping fees and shipping to Malaysia was only US$7.99, which was not terribly expensive, all things considered. 

As received in the mail
Yup, everything's in there.
The mouth trays themselves are the thermoforming ones, which means that all you do is dunk them into some boiling hot water for them to soften, quickly putting it in your mouth, suck the air out so that it forms better to your mouth. But I still messed it up a little because it wasn't a perfect fit, but at least now I can tell the top and bottom trays apart, so...

Close, but no prize
After that you're supposed to squirt a thin layer of gel into the trays themselves before putting them into your mouth from 15 minutes to half an hour. Even with the thermoforming trays, I still found that I had a bunch of pooled drool to drain when I removed the tray, so definitely not for overnight application. You also have to rinse the trays of excess gel (and drool) and to dry them before use.

I did use this for a few nights straight, but had to cut back when the sensitivity kicked in (they did warn you about this in the instructions). Also tried to take pictures, but replicating the lighting conditions for before and after pictures got cumbersome and I don't know if I could subject people to pictures of my teeth again ;/, but I can tell you that my teeth did look a couple shades lighter after a couple nights use, even with my daily tea and coffee consumption.

All in all, I don't mind this home teeth whitening kit because of the thermoforming tray option and using this was definitely less cumbersome.
