from Northern Ontario
First time whitnening so I purchased the Gentle White. After second day (4th treatment), I experienced some gum irritation with minor reddening and white dots showing. I almost packed up the device for return especially since I hadn't seen any whitening effects. I skipped the next treatment, but decided to give it one more try. I reduced the treatments to once per day. I didn't have any further problems with gum irritation;I was carefull not to have any of the gel on the sides of the mouth tray where it would sit directly on the gums. It wasn't until after the tenth treatment that I really noticed the whitening. So, it did work, but not as much as I hoped it would. I liked that it did brighten the whole mouth, not just the front teeth. At this time, I am putting that I would recommend this to a friend, but I really don't have anything else to compare it to. I am considering trying the Brilliant White next time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A little pricey for a throw-away product. Battery cannot be replaced! Did not feel it white

Cleans teeth well
from Calgary, AB
I like the Pearl but I thought it would have made my teeth whiter. I ordered the Brilliant. I liked how it really cleaned my teeth. I also read other reviews and I feel the same way that the price is way to high for a through way after so many times. I give it a 4 because I like the convenience of it also in the packaging. It is a good product but way overpriced. I do recommend it but lower the price.

Very expensive product for something that totally expires with batteries not being able to replace?!I found this device very sensitive on gums and this product did turn my gums white and patchy as well. After the second day of using the device I couldn't wait for the 5 minutes to be up so I could the thing out of my mouth!! Continued to use for the whole 5 days, twice a day and I would honestly say my teeth are maybe 2 shades whiter, if that. Not entirely impressed. Maybe if it was half the price....
A great teeth whitener
This product did what it was supposed to do. I've never used teeth whitener before, but I was planning to do something about my teeth as they were yellowing a little bit. Then I saw this product being sold at TSC with a better deal than the store that was advertising it for more money.I've never experienced the discomfort that the other users went through. And my teeth are whiter than they were before using this product. I just followed the instructions.
great if you use it right
from st johns (Newfoundland
just like if you put hairspray on your eyes if you put pearl gel on your gums its not going to do its job, place gel in tray so itd make sence for the application.. the tray is not custom made so it will not fit like a glove, but its a much better applicator than a strip. only complaint is that i cant find the gel sold separately .
Whitening in 5 minutes!
I like the structure of this product. I was expecting it to use a light like the zoom professional whitening as the mouthpiece looks like it would, but it uses a micro current. 5 minutes is great, as the last whitening kit I used took 60 minutes to work fully. I did find a white spot on my gums after the first use, but I think its sanitizing the mouth and gums the first couple times and is normal. It didn't burn. I'm guessing if people have less than stellar oral hygiene and are using the Pearl as a wonder product, they may experience more tingling than others. I agree that one tube per side is a bit much, I use about 3/4 tube per side and works great. I like this product now that I understand how it works. The price baffles me, as the mouthpiece needs to be replaced after so many uses and is essentially just a timer, and the Pearl gel apparently only works with this device, other whitening gels wouldn't work I was told by customer service. Maybe change the packaging so customers can vary the amount of gel, and the amount of packaging is overkill. Works well but not 5 star because of price and replacement costs.

Read the small print....
I purchased this as a showstopper and was so excited to try it. The first thing I noticed when I read the booklet, was that the unit is run by a battery that will last about 250 total minutes AND cannnot be replaced. So then it is garbage? Your first treatments will use up 50 minutes in the first week. Too costly for a "throw away" gadget. I decided I would still try it. The first treatment tingled. The second one burned. The third I was unable to keep in for even a minute. Gums had turned red and had white patches from the peroxide. My teeth did show some whitening but the pain was too much to continue. It took three or four days for my gums to return to normal. I ordered the brilliant, but after that experience, I would not even try the gentle.
Good Product, if you use if properly
i went with the gentle white because i was concerned of sensitivity issues, be sure to put the gel where you're teeth and not your gums come in contact with it... there really isn't enough gel for ideal results but it makes a huge difference, all strips are garbage compared to the pearl.i wouldn't buy if for this price but i did get it for the show stopper price which was more reasonable.. i hope the gel is sold separately , another suggestion i have is if you do have sensitive gums use a natural toothpaste that advertises itself as gentle on gums as this treatment (like any whitening treatment is going to cause some tingling.
