Most whitening products focused on whitening your teeth in one way. Either they work to prevent stains or they try to get rid of the stains that are already there. There’s nothing wrong with either of these approaches. They’re both tried and true methods of whitening teeth.
But wait! In comes a potential game changer (que epic music).
Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash claims to do both. Both!!
That’s a big deal.
But will this challenger be a worthy competitor? Will it swoop in and save the dentals in distress? Will it ride home on a white horse wearing white armor with white teeth?
We’re here to find out. First we’ll break down exactly how Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash works and then we’ll figure out if this stuff actually helps to whiten teeth. Stay tuned!
How It Works
So how does this stuff actually work? Rembrandt explains it with pretty picture all over their website but it breaks down into two basic ideas:
Liquid Hydrogen Attack
Continuing forward with our cheesy white knight analogy, the first part of the Rembrandt Deeply White mouthwash process is a liquid hydrogen peroxide attack. The small fluoride molecules will charge forth and wage great battle with the various bacteria that cause stains.
The basic idea here is this part helps to actually make your teeth whiter. The liquid hydrogen will help to kill all the things in your mouth that make your teeth yellow. Simple as that.
Following the liquid hydrogen onslaught our hero, the Rembrandt mouthwash will pull back and switch to defensive mode using fluoride. Fluoride is what you’ll find in most toothpastes. It’s the only chemical recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) to actually keep your teeth from getting cavities. It does this by making the slime that oral bacteria produce less corrosive.
In Rembrandt’s mouthwash it does just that. The fluoride defense will help to strengthen your enamel. This will make it more resistant to stain causing bacteria.
Those are the basics. Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash will first attack the stains and then work to protect your teeth against them. It’s a pretty smart system.
So aside from this one-two punch, what else makes hero of Rembrandt teeth whitening so special? Well for starters it really is one of the only oral rinses on the market that helps to whiten your teeth. There are a few others, but generally most mouthwashes are dedicated to bad breath, gum health or teeth health.
Next, it’s the only mouthwash on the market that uses active dental peroxide and fluoride. This means it’s the only mouthwash that has that one-two punch. That makes this guy pretty special.
With great power comes great responsibility though, right? You won’t find yourself with any whiter teeth if you don’t use this stuff, right?
How To Use
The basic ideas on how to use this aren’t too different from a regular mouthwash. There are just a few specific things you should be aware of.
First, you need to use this for a full minute. Most of the US population will only swish their mouthwash for a few seconds. Most don’t go over 30 seconds. You’ll need to swish the Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash around for that full 60 seconds for it to take full effect.
Next is the important part: don’t eat or drink for 30 minutes afterwards. I know, it sucks! But it’s necessary in order for the liquid hydrogen to properly attack your oral bacteria and the fluoride help build your enamel back up. If you rinse, brush, drink or eat within 30 minutes you’ll be significantly hampering the usefulness of that Rembrandt teeth whitening power.
Finally, to see the full effects you’ll need to use this twice a day. I got into the bad habit in my childhood of only rinsing in the morning. That won’t cut it. You’ll need to use this in the morning and at night to unlock its full whitening power.
Concerning the experience, we quite like this oral rinse. The taste isn’t too strong. There’s a slight minty flavor but all and all you’ll find much stronger mouthwashes on the market. You’ll also notice that this thing foams up like it’s 1999. As to be expected from a whitening mouthwash, there’s tons of foam. Not to worry though – it’s not an issue.
So, does it work? It’s difficult to measure teeth whiteness, but after about two months of use I found myself confident that my teeth color had improved. The thing with the Rembrandt whitening mouthwash is that it won’t work overnight. You’ll need to use it twice a day consistently for about 12 weeks before you really see those big results. Even still, you’ll be happy with what you see if you stick with it.
Maybe the Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash is our hero after all!
As much as we’ve loved Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash, it does have a few chinks in its armor. First is that there’s no way to measure out the liquid. Ugh. Come on. Why would you design a mouthwash bottle with no convenient measuring cup!? It’s pretty frustrating. If you’ve got a small cup (maybe a shot glass…?) laying around you can just use that, but it’s more about the principle.
We didn’t think the taste was very strong at all. We have, however, heard from others that they thought the taste and sensation when they used Rembrandt mouthwash was super strong.
If your mouth is super sensitive to mouthwash you may find that you’ve got some trouble at first. As with any other strong mouthwash, make sure to build up to the full minute if you can’t get there at first. Also, make sure to keep this product away from kids. There are plenty of kid friendly oral rinses out there on the market – this is not one of them.
Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash Wrap Up
I feel compelled to make some comment about our white knight valiantly galloping away into the sunset, but I think that’s a bit played out at this point. Overall we thought that the Rembrandt Deeply White Mouthwash was a pretty solid option. You won’t see the effects immediately. If you add it to your regular oral health routine with consistency though, you’ll be satisfied.
