The LED light expedites the oxidation and bleaching process too for faster results. This breaks up stains on your teeth from things like coffee, tea, or wine in the same amount of time as a television show episode.

How It Works
20 Minute White Smile works in the same way that all teeth whitening does: it relies on peroxide. This bleaching agent is used to break apart stains on your teeth, while allowing oxygen to reach the teeth and whitening them. During most treatments, including this one, the production of saliva is put on hold while the teeth are dried out and oxygen infused. When this process is over, saliva production returns, but the stains are gone. Of course they do come back with the same lifestyle decisions, but they can be broken up faster.
The biggest selling point for this teeth whitening kit is the speed. Most whitening takes hours, for multiple days in a row but this one only takes twenty minutes. By comparison, even a trip to a professional dentist takes longer.
The biggest issue here is that the company fails to address the longevity of the results.
- Whitening Kits
Whitening kits are kits you can use safely at home because the amount of peroxide contained in the kit is power compared to professional dental gels. These kits rely on flexible teeth trays to apply the gels. The kits often have an LED light to expedite the whitening process in much the same fashion as the lasers that a professional dentist would use.
Some people go to their dentist to get a customized tooth tray to use with these kits. Standard trays are often ill fitting and somewhat clumsy, which does not work well for every mouth. Personalized trays, especially for people planning to whiten regularly, can reduce the amount of irritation in the gums while improving results.
- Whitening Strips
For the same peroxide related reasons as the whitening kits, the whitening strips are available for home use too. There are many kinds of strips, some which you wear for one or two hours per day, for seven day per week. Others you wear for one hour per day for fourteen hours.
The strength of the peroxide and the time left on your teeth influence the number of days it takes. In fact, even the fourteen day kits can be done in seven days if you use two sets of strips each day. Strips are among the most popular product for at home use because they are the least expensive. They are also more effective if done properly.
- Whitening Pens
Whitening pens are a home based alternative that are theoretically easier to use for people without perfectly straight teeth. The reason for this is that they are pens containing the whitening gel, which you then apply directly to your teeth. With the kits, strips and pens, there is a chance that the peroxide could irritate the gums or result in tooth sensitivity. The symptoms happen if home based whitening is being done too often or if the levels of peroxide are too high. Inflammation in your gums can also happen if your gums are irritated.
How to Use (Step by Step)
Start by applying the Vitamin E swab to your teeth.
Insert the pre-filled tray with the bleaching agent and attach the LED light.
Bleach your teeth white in just 20 minutes. Enjoy a bright, new smile in no time.
In theory, the twenty minute smile saves you money too because you can use it in lieu of things like expensive whitening kits or trips to a dentist for laser whitening.
As mentioned, the 20 minute process does save time, if you compare it directly to other teeth whitening. Rather than strips every day, or multiple visits to your dentist, you can get this done while you watch a single television show episode.
How it's Different from Competitors
The biggest highlight for 20 Minute White Smile is that it is pain free, comfortable, and fast, especially compared to professional laser treatment. While it works in roughly the same way, it is an expedited version.
Laser teeth whitening is a form of rather costly dental care that whitens the teeth with a peroxide heavy gel and a laser. Compared to home based whitening, this can be done in a much shorter amount of time. The laser shines heat on the teeth while the saliva production is impaired. Combined with the bleach, this produced a heavy whiteness sans the natural glow of moisturized teeth. Dentists apply whitening gel to break apart stains and then the laser activates the gel in such a way that oxygen gets into your teeth. This whole session takes about one hour which is still more time than the 20 Minute Smile.
