Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit Review
Bottom Line

The Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit is a top choice if you need to whiten your teeth in a hurry. The trays are moldable to your teeth (just dip in hot water first) to better distribute the whitening get to even hard to reach areas. And it works, too, with users saying they were very pleased with the noticeable results. However, do not use this product if you have sensitive teeth.

Breaking it down

Sometime you just need white teeth NOW. If that's you, the Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit offers (almost) instant gratification. While some users say they didn't have as dramatic of results as they had hoped, most are wowed by their much-whiter smile. One feature that reviewers love is the moldable trays, which they feel gives them better coverage in between their teeth and in harder to reach back teeth than strips do. Plenty of happy reviewers have posted "before" and "after" photos as proof of their visibly whiter teeth in just a few hours -- some say the effect is cumulative and continues to improve for up to 24 hours after treatment. We reached out to Johnson & Johnson, but they declined to provide us with the exact percentage of hydrogen peroxide in their 2-hour Whitening Kit.

The "two-hour" treatment is in increments of 20 minutes on, 10 minutes on, rinse and repeat. Although, you first mold the trays to your mouth shape by dipping them in boiling water and placing them on your teeth. Then, fill the molded trays with a thin strip of gel and reinsert them on your teeth. Wait 20 minutes, remove the tray, rest 10 minutes, rinse your mouth and repeat that sequence three more times for a total treatment time of two hours. Users say it's very easy to do, although many say the gel/tray combo is messy and feels unpleasantly "squishy." However, quite a number also concede that this method seems to offer better coverage than whitening strips do.

If you have sensitive teeth we would warn you away from the Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit. The biggest complaint we see -- practically the only complaint, really -- with this whitening system is that it will make your teeth hurt if you have sensitivities. Even those who didn't think they had sensitive teeth say this treatment made their gums or teeth tingle or caused pain after a while; although a few say that they hung in there and it went away. Rembrandt recommends using the product every six months to keep your smile bright.
