Colgate Visible White is a professional teeth-whitening kit used by dentists and is a fast working treatment that sees results after three days.
Colgate offer a range of products aimed at the dental professional and some of their whitening systems are not suitable for home use. This kit is safe for the private user and can be used as a complete treatment, or as an addition to the stronger professional teeth whitening service that is offered in the dental surgery.
Colgate Visible White is available from UK online retail outlets at around £34.99. You cannot buy direct from the Colgate website unless you are a dental professional.
What is Colgate Visible White?
Each kit of Colgate Visible White contains four 3.11g syringes of gel, a storage case and patient instructions. Mouth trays are not included with the kit because the dentist is expected to custom make these for you, however thermoform mouth trays are available online so can be purchased separately.
The whitening gel should be left on the teeth for 30 minutes per day and results should be noticed within three days. The kit should be used for between 7 to 10 days for best results.
The whitening gel comes in three strengths of hydrogen peroxide: 5%, 7% or 9% which is comparative to 17%, 23% and 30% hydrogen carbamide.
Colgate is one of the leading names in the dental industry so you know that this is a safe, good quality product that will not damage your teeth or cause discomfort.
The whitening gel is formulated with fluoride and the water based gel hydrates the teeth so that sensitivity is kept to a minimum. The treatment time is convenient and the kit comes in a neat carrying case making it easy to use wherever you are.
Colgate Visible White Disadvantages
The main drawback to the Colgate Visible White system is that it is not a complete kit for the private home user. This “home kit” is often used by dentists to accompany stronger surgery whitening treatment so is no stronger on it’s own than many other products. The kit also does not include mouth trays.
Colgate Visible White is marketed as a professional product but this kit is no more effective than many others on the market.
Colgate Visible White…. Verdict
If you are considering teeth whitening products, a complete teeth-whitening kit that has the home user in mind from start to finish, is the better option.
Clear instructions, mouth trays and a laser light will bring better results at a lower cost to the user.
