Red wine, blueberry cocktails, morning coffee — it all adds up to less-than-sparkling teeth. Promising results leaving teeth up four to six shades lighter in a single 20-minute session, the completely portable IGNITE by BriteWhite LED teeth whitening system is a quick alternative to scheduling a whitening session with your dentist.
The kit contains a pack of disposable mouthpiece covers, two push syringes filled with whitening gel (a 35 percent carbamide peroxide blend), 18 brush-up tooth prepping pads, one nine-volt battery, a whitening chart and an LED-light mouthpiece attached to a flexible neck collar so you can whiten and brighten hands-free.
It all fits into a soft zippered case measuring roughly 8 inches by 6 inches by 2.5 inches to pack easily in a carry-on.
I brought it with me on a recent three-week excursion and used it twice with good results. I found it to be a little messy, but completely manageable for the recommended 20 minutes. Despite my four-times-a-day tea habit and red wine at business meals, my smile was always ready for prime time.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
