I think I’m one of a huge crowd of girls who want and try to have whiter teeth even though sometimes they have their teeth already whiter than anybody else’s. This is not my case, though. I’d say I have normal teeth. And when you have something normal, you might want it to be better. So, having this picture in my mind, I decided to do something about the color of my teeth.
So, since I’m a student and my pockets are not entirely full of money, I decided to avoid odontologist cabinets and ordered a WhiteLight teeth whitening system on Ebay. You can only imagine how excited I was to find such a product for only US $3.69. So I ordered it without thinking a lot, then waited for almost a month to receive it, and finally got it a few days ago.
More than excited to get my new perfect teeth, I did everything as written on the instruction sheet, grabbed my current favourite book (Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, if anyone’s interested) and got all cozy in my bed, ready to keep the emitter in my mouth at least twice as long as it’s necessary. However, the excitment suddenly changed into the look of horror in my eyes as I could almost literally feel how the damn blue light lasted blue and existed at all for exactly 14 seconds! Damn it!
I did anything possible to pretend I hadn’t bought a teeth whitener with bad battery – I took it out, put it in again (repeated 200 more times), I put it in on different sides (a little less times as I started losing hope), then shook the whole emitter for a few times, and then gave up.
I had to admit that this was the first broken thing I purchased on ebay and my teeth were not getting any whiter that night or probably any other night as I was so mad I decided to never buy anything like that again (especially if you have to wait it for a month during which you get only more excited and then this…).
Unitll now, I haven’t found the right battery to buy but I probably just don’t know where to look. Also, I’m not very active in looking for it in the shops as I bet it will cost nearly the same as the whole whitening system on Ebay.
So much for my white teeth I guess.
Anyway, I’m very interested in how much of a loss it really was – have you ladies tried it? Does it work? I would appreciate any comments on your own experience because now, when not so angry anymore, I’m thinking about buying another one.
