Review: GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening

There are so many ways to get your teeth whiter, that it can be difficult to figure out which solutions work, and which ones are duds, especially if you're still hesitant to see a dentist for a professional teeth whitening. The good news is that at-home whitening systems are becoming more advanced, and some people report excellent results with at-home whitening products. GLO Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening is a teeth whitening system that seems to be effective for some users, but not all.

What is it?

The GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening system uses a patent-pending light, called GLO or Guided Light Optic technology, which delivers heat and light to the teeth. The GLO technology is delivered via a specialized mouthpiece filled with thixotropic gel. The company promises that using the system for only 32 minutes a day, for three to five days produces noticeable teeth whitening. The system runs about $320 for a full series of treatments.

How do you use GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening?

The GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening system comes with a GLO control, which attaches to the mouthpiece. Once the control is fully charged, you snap it into a lanyard (also included with the system) that you put around your neck, and then you attach the GLO mouthpiece. The kit also comes with lip care gel to keep your lips safe during application, which you should apply before inserting the mouthpiece.

Before inserting the mouthpiece, you apply a thin layer of the whitening gel on freshly-brushed teeth, and press the GLO button the control. The mouthpiece will light up bright blue, and you will place it in your mouth. The control light will turn off automatically after eight minutes. You’ll repeat the process three more times.

Why is GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening Different from other systems?

First, GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening uses a new technology to apply heat and light to teeth, working with the gel to cause whitening. The mouthpiece works to keep the whitening oxygen on the teeth, rather than letting it escape. The mouthpiece is also flexible and molds to your mouth with the heat of the GlO light.

GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening is reportedly safe for gums and teeth. It can even be used on bonded teeth, dentures, and veneers. Plus, it whitens upper and lower teeth simultaneously.

What are the side effects or risks of GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening?

Side effects may include redness, soreness, or swelling of gums or the mouth. If this occurs, users should stop using the product and consult their dentist.

Who shouldn’t use GLO?

If you have gum disease or untreated cavities, you should consult your dentist before using GLO. Pregnant women should not use the product.

Does GLO Teeth Whitening work?

Online reviews of the GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening system have been mixed. Many consumers reported that the system does not really work. Plus, some users noted that the system is very messy and impractical. Others noted that the system took over two weeks of regular use before they saw results, yet the instructions indicate that users should not use GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening for more than 14 days.

Positive reviews, however, praised the device’s safety and gentleness, noting that their teeth were whiter after using the system. Reviewers in this camp called the system easy to use and favored the series of short sessions over one long whitening session.

Should I try GLO?

Like many at-home cosmetic treatments, the effectiveness of GLO Teeth Whitening will depend on your particular traits (i.e., How badly are your teeth stained? How well will your particular teeth respond to the treatment?), as well as your attention to the instructions. The product will no doubt work best and most safely if you are careful to follow the instructions in the kit. However, some individuals’ teeth will likely respond better than others.
