Supersmile Professional Whitening System is gentle on teeth, doesn't cause sensitivity and is as easy to use as a toothbrush, reviewers say. Reviewers also like that it isn't messy and that it doesn't require a big investment of time. On the other hand, it doesn't produce as dramatic a result as other whiteners. If you prefer a stronger teeth whitener, reviewers say Crest 3D White Whitestrips Advanced Vivid (Est. $40) is an excellent over-the-counter option, but it isn't as gentle.
Subtle whitening. Like all over-the-counter teeth whiteners, results vary with the Supersmile Professional Whitening System. Several reviewers at Amazon.com, MakeupAlley.com and Drugstore.com say the formula works very well. One reviewer at MakeupAlley.com says, "After using this for one week, I just can't get over how the yellowish stains have disappeared."
Others, however, aren't so impressed. One user at Drugstore.com says, "All you are getting with this product is a very expensive, very small tube of toothpaste." As with all teeth-whitening products, results are likely to be more pronounced on heavily stained teeth. However, Supersmile is best used on lightly stained teeth.
As easy as brushing your teeth. Reviewers like the simplicity of the Supersmile Professional Whitening System because it doesn't require extra steps beyond brushing your teeth twice a day. One user at MakeupAlley.com says, "A big plus is the ease of use -- since you have to brush two times a day anyway, this doesn't take up additional time or hassle." It's also less messy than whitening trays and strips.
Little to no sensitivity. Although Supersmile doesn't earn the ADA seal of approval -- no over-the-counter whitening system does -- it's safe for use on healthy teeth. Experts say those with cavities and/or gum disease should avoid all whitening products, which can cause further damage and extreme sensitivity and pain. That being said, most user reviewers say they experience zero sensitivity and discomfort using Supersmile's whitening formula.
Editors at TeethWhiteningReviews.com say Supersmile Professional Whitening System works, but it won't produce dramatic results. About 70 reviewers also voice their opinions, giving the system 3 out of 5 stars for performance. Users have mixed opinions about how well it works: Some saw a noticeable difference after a few weeks of regular use, and others saw none at all. Differences are likely due to the starting condition of teeth and different expectations.
