My birthday is almost here! I’m feeling good, losing weight and oh wait a minute, my teeth are not looking so white.
Lately, I find I have been obsessed with teeth color. Yes, the coffee every morning does not help. And the coffee in the afternoon does not help either. Oh wait, I’m sure the sometimes 3 cans of Diet Coke is not making it any better. But, we’ll save those habits for another post.
Back to my birthday! In a few weeks, I will celebrate my birthday. And I thought, if I plan ahead, maybe a could brighten up my smile before then. It would be nice to have a whiter smile in my birthday pics!
After cleaning off all the snow, it was time for this mom to have a few minutes alone. I headed to my local Duane Reade store. With weather being tempermental, I drove a little bit further to a Duane Reade that had covered parking. No worries of having to find a spot.
After looking at various options such as gels, lights, strips and pens, I decided to go with something that seemed manageable for my busy day-to-day life. I chose the Prime Time Dual Action Teeth Whitening System. Of course, while at Duane Reade, I had to stock up on some in store sales that I came across. You can read all about my shopping experience in my Google + story. Click here to read all about it my purchase. The pens as well as the promise of results in a short amount of time seemed like something I could try for a first time use.
When I opened the package, the directions were right at the top and it explained how to achieve a beautiful smile.
The diagrams and steps seemed easy to follow. I twisted the pen and applied the Pre-Treatment Pen and then the Fast & Easy Teeth Whitening Pen.
I had to leave on for at least 30 minutes. During the time, I just felt a little tingle but there wasn’t any burning or sensitivity because of it. Thirty minutes is a lot better than 2 hours.
I did notice a slight difference but I now need to continue morning and night for 5 days. For ease of use and respect of my time, I think this will be an achievable goal. In the morning, I will apply right when I get up so that I have the 1/2 hour wait time. And, the evening can be done right after the kids go to bed.
I’m hoping, in the next couple of days to notice a big difference in color.
Thank you Prime Time for getting the job done quickly and easily.

I’m always nervous about home whitening because of the sensitivity issue. I hope you’ll report back if you have any after the full treatment.
We don’t have a Duane Reade here in Michigan but I do like the idea of how fast & easy their whitening product seems to be. I need to get one!

I saw a number of Duane Reades when I was in New York. It looks like a great store and they have quite a selection. Wishing we had one around here.
Kristin Barclay says
I’m unfamiliar with that store. I do need to whiten my teeth though!
Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
I hope it works well for you! I like going in there when I’m in NYC!
My brothers wedding is this summer and I need to do that!
I wish I had a DR near me I would love to try this whitening system.
Bridget A says
I’ve never had my teeth whitened, and I’m a little nervous about doing it myself at home, LOL!
I’ve never whitened my teeth before, but it’s something I want to try. I’m also weary about doing it at home….how did it turn out?!
You made me miss Duane Reade! I’ve been thinking about whitening my teeth and found that I can buy Prime Time Whitening near me. I may give it a try.
I have to agree; thirty minutes does sound easy to work into my schedule. I like that there is no muss or fuss to the Prime Time system 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful birthday – Moms deserve those – and I can’t wait to see how well the Prime Time system worked for you! Thanks for sharing your find!
These are actually fantastic ideas in about blogging. You have touched some
fastidious factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.
