I recently came across a Luster Premium Home Whitening kit. Is this effective and safe?
I am very glad you wrote. In most cases, when someone writes us about some type of teeth whitening kit they’ve come across we can usually find something positive about it, even if we feel professional teeth whitening is better. This one, however, is a complete fraud. Let’s start with the light. It is too weak to contribute anything. It is there for purely psychological reasons.
As for the whitening ingredient, they use as their “super whitener”, it is nothing more than a pigment from zinc oxide. This will temporarily stain the teeth more white but will wear off. My guess, after looking at the reviews, is any positive reviews must have been written before the pigment wore off.
My suggestion is that you not waste any money on this. If you want your teeth whitened, I am going to suggest you talk to your dentist and have it done right. If it is the cost that bothers you, many dentists are willing to work with you on payment plans. The great news about this is professional teeth whitening is the least expensive way to make a huge difference in the appearance of your smile.
