TresWhite Supreme Review

Opalescence treswhite Supreme is made by Ultradent. While Ultradent generally focuses on custom professional whitening solutions for dentists, they have created one over-the-counter (OTC) solution. The treswhite Supreme system is available in two concentrations of 10% or 15% hydrogen peroxide and is stronger than supermarket teeth whiteners. It's also available in peach, mint or melon flavors – so it's even fun to use.

Packaging & Instructions for TresWhite

The treswhite Supreme system comes with upper and lower mouth tray packets. The trays may be used for up to 60 minutes per session.

treswhite Supreme Whitening System Advantages

Opalescense is a class act and this OTC solution is very well reviewed. It's competitively-priced and can sometimes be found at even less than more popular OTC solutions such as whitestrip products. The powerful whitening formula and the easy-to-use tray delivery system produces better results than most kits in this range ($50).

Who Should use Tres White?

Ultradent emphasizes that treswhite Supreme is not meant to replace professional tray whitening, but for those not doing any whitening now, or those who don't want to mess with impressions or can't tolerate custom trays, it's a great alternative.

One thing to note about this product is that they might not go back far enough to get most second bis or molars, so if you show a lot of teeth when you smile (ala Julia Roberts - this is rare), you should go with another solution.

Whitening Factor

In comparison with whitening strips, the TresWhite system requires far less dexterity. The trays are easy to put in, cover much more of the tooth than whitestrips, and are easy to wear. You should see results within a few days. If you have extremely yellow teeth, you're better off going with a professional solution.

Shelf Life: 12 months, 6 months if unrefrigerated.

I got these on sale at my dentists office and i too felt a little tingling or discomfort but it goes away shortly after. I have the 15% variety. I have noticed a brightening but I am only on day 4 so I think they will get nice and pearly white soon enough. I have used Crest whitestrips in the past and found this solution easier and more affordable.

I wasn't quite pleased when using trewhite supreme. I stumbled upon it on the internet, and with their pleasing advertorial about how safe it is and how it actually has benefits for your teeth(to which now i know not to trust anything I'm remotely unfamilar with) I decided to give it the go ahead for myself. The first day I used it my lower gums were burning and it left a white mark on my gums. I wasn't worried since it wasn't noticable. But the second day when my gums were bleeding and my teeth aching I decided I'd leave it for a few days. I also had white stains on my top gums, making me freak out. Luckily it went away a few minutes later after I licked my tongue over it constantly. I haven't used it again, having still a box full of trays left. I guess I'm too scared it may permanently damages my gums. I should've listened to my uncle, a dentist, when he said it isn't at all 100% safe to use take-home products such as these. I never review any thing like this, but felt it right to warn others who plan on buying this product. PLEASE, if you really want your teeth bleached, go to a professional. It might be more costly but at least u can be guarenteed it safe and properly used. Plus, it doesn't work with everyone. So I suggest to leave your teeth as be. I'm glad I didn't wait around to see the damages this product may cause to my teeth and gums.

I was given 10 trays for free by my dentist. They do cause gum sensitivity and can turn your gums white. The discoloration and the sensitivity went away shortly after the tray was removed. If you do no have healthy gums do not use this product. It is strong (as it should be to whiten in a short amount of time) and can cause burns to unhealthly gums.

On tray five of the 15% version and loving the results by using one every other day. I leave the tray in for only 15 minutes to avoid gum sensitivity and continue to see brighter, whiter teeth on upper and lower. My dental hygenist recommended two weeks ago for my slightly yellowed lower front teeth (over 40 and a permanent retainer). Follow the new instructions and the stuff works well.

Year and half ago i used 7 TresWhite Supreme trays and i would say i'm definitely satisfied with the result. Before using ThresWhite i've done the laser whitening treatment and it was utterly painful and didn't get the desired effect. Two months later found out about TresWhite and gave it a shot. I haven't had the gum swelling and burning issues, but i do had some minor sensitivity problems. Two times i forgot to take the trays off and fell asleep. Woke up in the middle of the night with horrible pain that lasted for a day, even when i took dozens of painkillers. But it was my mistake that i forgot to take them off after an hour.

This was not a good product at all. I do not recommend this to anyone. It was suppose to blend the colors of my teeth. All it did was emphasized the spots and made them white. I found these to be bad. My dentist recommended these to me and said keep them in for a hour but i thought that was too long so i only did 30 minutes. But to sum it up, i wouldn't tell anyone to use it.

I was very hesitant to try any whitening products after reading and hearing what people wrote on the internet, but I now know those people either didn't follow the directions or did the opposite of what they were suppose to do! I wore TresWhite Supreme for 15 minutes, 3 days in a row and couldn't believe how white my teeth were! Everyone noticed immediately! I definitely recommend TresWhite Supreme for anyone wanting to whiten their smile and especially prior to important events as proms, weddings, summer tans, and just plain smiling more.

After applying, I squished some of the gel up a little higher onto the teeth, thinking the gel needed to cover them. I didn't understand you did NOT need to do this.
Well this caused some of the gel to come up over the top of the plastic casing into my mouth. It was hard not to swallow some of it that mixed in with the copious amounts of saliva it produces.
I tried spitting it out, but evidently wasn't successful enough---it BURNED MY esophagus and took a couple of days to heal.

So glad it didn't burn THROUGH my esophagus. So with that experience and reading all of the gum problems people are having I think I'll just try an electric tooth brush and some baking soda.

My husband and i have only been using the treys a little here and there but both of us havnt had any issues with buring or our gums tingling aside from the minty "flavoring" that is just like toothpaste minus the nasty peroxide kick. when i used the crest white stirps although i got results i had TERRIBLE sensitivity and these are a stronger amount of bleach but have a protectant on them that helps curve sensitivity andi have yet to feel any and would reccomend these to anyone. my husband had horrile stains on his front two teeth and they are pretty much non existant since the 2nd trey. the only issue we have had is the amount of drool that comes with them other than that great product!!

I have read most of the reviews on this website and it seems that a lot of people report having pain and discomfort with this product. First, for those of you buying the product online, it is very important that you have a check-up from your dentist before using this product to make sure your gums are healthy enough to tolerate it. So, get it from your dentist, not online. Or at least go to your dentist first and tell them you are planning to use this product and see what they say. Secondly, there are ways to make this product more comfortable to use. I remove some of the gel from the trays before putting them in my mouth - mostly the gel that would be on the back of my teeth. I also cut the strips down a bit so they are not rubbing on my gums awkwardly. Most importantly, I put vasoline on my gums before putting the gel in my mouth. This helps a lot! This product does work very well so it is worth a little extra effort to ease the discomfort.

I just had a 'first time bleaching' meltdown. After the first 5 mintues my gums began tingeling and after about fifteen minutes of burning i went to the mirror to check myself out and i about passed out. on like three teeth my gums were reacting badly. but after reading i now realize that i must have put too much in the trays. ONce i seen my gums all white and puffy and obviously irratated i visualized like some kind of horrible case where all my gums wrotted off and my teeth fell out and i just about gave up on it until i decided to do a little reviewing, which shortly calmed me down for i realized that its simi normal and that ill be okay. But over all im pretty satisfied though if i would've known that i could get the same legit stuff online for a fraction of the price i paid for them at my dentist office i totally would have and so far thats the only thing i regret not doing.

I am a heavy smoker and drink coffee throughout each day. My teeth were borderline brown, certainly a strong yellow. My dentist gave me a 2 day sample to try. I just finished my first day (1 hour) and I have to say, I am stunned. The yellow is gone. They are not bright white yet, but this 1st treatment took my teeth out of the yellow family. I can't believe it. I am scared to jinx myself, but I had no burning of the gums. I did experience mild sensitivity for the first few hours following, but nothing more. I just ordered an additional 10 day pack. I hope it continues to make my teeth whiter,

For those of you who bought it from your dentist, please reconsider your options. Of course you can find it cheaper online! Amazon has it for $50. Online is almost always a cheaper option for everything.

I had these things on for 5 minuites and decided tocheck out some reviews.. first few were " I love my new teeth" so I was excited. A few more down was the sensitivity was so bad I couldnt sleep... As a few minuited went by one of my teeth started getting a shooting pain! i got scared and took them off and brushed my teeth 4 times... if afted less than 10 min my tooth was hurting I wouldn't recomend this product to anyone
! i already use sensodine tooth paste.. I wouldn't want to have to add advil on top of that. This is not worth it. I would say just use hydrogen peroxide as a rinse after brushing... works just the same IF NOT BETTER!

My teeth are very yellow, although I do not smoke. I got a pack of 10 free from my dentist, and this is 3rd consecutive day I am using it. I am already seeing results! My gum tingles a bit today (did not happen past 2 days), and there are a bit of white spots. The white spots aren't noticeable unless you stare at your teeth with your nose on the mirror. I will see how it goes.

Well I had recieved these as a gift so I put them on, then decided to look at these reviews I had them in about 4 minutes and was so scared from what everyone was saying I took them off and tossed them in the trash. I spoke to my girls after and they noticed my teeth were whiter instantly! So I'm pleased only after 4 minutes not sure if I would use them again. I have no pain and not interested in burning my gums off. Thanks guys for your reviews.

I just read all these reviews because I just completed my first application of treswhite. Yes, I was shocked that my gums turned white (and puffy) and stung so much during the process. However, it's professional and MUCH stronger than Crest whitestrips! I noticed whiter teeth right away. I'm just going to be smarter about the other nine applications. AVOID the gums and I'm sure it'll be a lot better. :)

I used these TWO times first time, no problem the next day I put them in for the second time and my gums started burning I followed the directions and only used then for 15 mins, I took the pain took off the strips, and my gums were white, I thought ok this will pass. They then turned PURPLE the next day my gums were literally peeling and bleeding. I am in pain to say the least, I would LOVE to use them again but these literally wil burn your gums off!

I used one tray as it was recommended by a good friend of mine who is a hygenist. She told me I would only need to use it one time. My teeth are much yellower than hers, so she probably was going of her own treatement.
I wore them for almost one hour. My teeth didn't become sensitive until 5 hours later and it was so painful that I was thinking of taking medication.
Only until the evening did i realize my gums were also burned off. There were white spots all over my gums. My skin is literally comming off the gums. Even the next day it still has not healed yet. This never happened with Crest White Strips. Honestly that is the only thing that works safely.

Everyone gets sensitive teeth, that's just the chemistry of it. What we're doing is not natural. One thing that also works is brushing your teeth with Baking Soda every night. It helps to maintain after youve done your whitening.

just tried these for the first time, wore them for 15 minutes with discomfort and pain and i don't know how the results will turn out, but they did turn both my bottom and top gums white. i had them on so they fit comfortably and did not think that I applied them incorrectly. a product that can leave these kind of results simply doesn't seem safe to use in my mouth. i would rather have less-than-pearly whites that deal with this.

I found exactly the same results as you did.
My gums and teeth were burning to the point where I couldn't eat for the rest of the day and I found myself having to spit frequently as the gel oozed out of the paper.
I purchased two trays, so now I am going to use the second one as I paid for it, but I don't think I will ever do this again.
ALSO - I found my teeth only really became white around the 4th or 5th day. I put one tray on for two hours.
My dentist told me from 1 - 3 hours, but after two hours I felt as though I could scratch my gums off they were burning so much.

My teeth are slightly yellow except for my fromt porcelain crowns. My dentist recommended this product to save me some money, plus zomm is just is painful and it takes too long. This product worked slightly and that was on the 8th day. It says to use for 10 days at 20 minutes, I have the supreme. It burned my gums and made them white, they are still very sensitive and it hurts to brush there. The salive is ridiculous, it just drools out and of course you have to spit it out because you can't swallow hydrogen peroxide. I am going back to my dentist to to see what my other options are. Will never do this again! Sloppy and painful. The burning was excrutiating!

I do not recommend anyone use this product Tres White Supreme! Ever! The first time I put it on my teeth, it burned really badly. I figured it was simply part of the treatment, so I muscled my way through the pain for 12 minutes. When I took them off, parts of my gums were white (burned). I rinsed well, brushed my teeth gently, rinsed well again, and went to bed. When I woke up, my gums were PURPLE because they were so burned, and even worse, my gums had retracted a good cm overnight, meaning my teeth looked almost "pointed" on top when I smiled.

My teeth look WAY too big now, and my gums are really small. It was about half teeth, half gums before, and now it more like 2/3 teeth, 1/3 gums. IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!! And I paid NOTHING for it!!!! Now all I can do is constantly worry that my teeth will start coming loose because there isn't enough gum to hold them in place! I'm afraid to eat! Just DON'T do it!

My teeth became so much whiter after just a couple treatments. The first treatment was excruciating on my gums, but after reading the reviews I figured I'd just cut the top of the strip and applied Aquaphor to my gums. This made the treatments much more bearable. My gums actually bled the first time. Also, the saliva production was ridiculous!

Treswhite 15% works like a mother..... ! I'm loving the results after jsut 3 days of wearing 15 minutes at a time... People that come on here telling : ow, my teeth hurt after 1 hour of wearing... Read the manual ffs. It's not in there for nothing you know... Over here the cheapest i could get them was 80 Euro's, but worth every cent imo! However i would have really like it if it would do whitening on the back teeth and on top of some teeth as well..

I discover that if I put vasoline on my gums before wearing the whitening product and keep the plastic thing as low as I can on my teeth, it's almost no pain at all. Besides that I always spit my salive that comes with parts of the gel.
The only fear I have it's about the teeth distroing factors that this product might come with.
Can someone tell me what would be the risc in time of using TresWhite Supreme?

The difference in times depends on if you have the supreme or not. The Supreme says to use for up to 15 mins while the other says 30-50 mins. I would not complain about the pain from whitening because it says it uses peroxide and so obviously it may burn your gums after awhile. With pain, comes beauty folks.

First off you can't be a complete idiot when using this product. Most people are idiots. Does it hurt? Yes. Have you ever tried trays? It is easily 50 times MORE painful. Teeth whitening is NOT a gentle procedure so if you want really white teeth be prepared. Beauty comes at a price. That said, I found that the pain diminished each time I used them. I also placed vasoline in my gumline and on the gums a bit and it helped. I have the 15% solution and they say to put it on for 15-20 minutes but I went 30. You MUST make sure you suck them against your teeth for complete coverage and don't move your mouth much while you have them in. Duh? Make sure they are on your teeth and not your gums. You can't be an idiot and expect results. Make sure the gel is in the right place. I've used 3 of my 10 trays and I have great results now. I do give my teeth a 3-4 day rest in between treatments. That helps a lot. Do NOT forget to brush your teeth after you take these out or the gel will stick and really burn your gums.

Again, don't be an idiot, use the common sense that god gave you and you will be fine. Plan on some discomfort but know that it's working!

I have just used it for the first time (out of the 5 purchased). I saw this page while googling about the PAIN - burning pain on my gums. The instructions given was to leave it on for 30 to 60 mins. I have removed after around 40mins having freaked out about the chemical burns remarks made. (PS, I rubbed sensitive toothpaste over my teeth and rinsed it off before using this product)

The base of the gum where it hurts most turned white when I removed it - like how open wounds would look like when you pour hydrogen peroxide over it. I guess there are bacteria present (but definitely not infection because I JUST visited the dentist a few days ago).

As for results...It is overall "brighter" rather than whiter and there are some unnaturally white spots.

The pain has subsided but I am getting a migraine from the earlier pain :/ I guess I will use it again 2 days later and just leave it for 30mins max. But think its not worth it for those who have yet to purchase it.

My dentist recommended the custom made trays but I decided to give these a shot first since we were talking 200 differance and I am very happy with results after just one use! I used for an hour and when i took it off , sure there was a bit of pain but nothing too bad and it went away after 10 min. My teeth were whiter after just that hour! i am def going to continue the process!

The lady at the dentist told me there may be some tooth sensitivity & I thought this meant that I may find hot/cold things more sensitive than usual...but this was not the case. What I think she meant is that when you brush your teeth after the hour of having them in it will feel like you are brushing your teeth with a rock! Nevertheless, I persisted for the 10 days & found that the initial nauseating taste I experienced on the first day had subsided. I carried around a box of tissues to spit into which really wasn't pretty. The results were ok. It's not like you need your sunglasses on everytime I open my mouth, but there is some improvement. It was a good first effort to try before paying the exorbinant price of having the dentist do a professional whitening.

one word...OUCH

got some samples from my dentist decided to try it out. Had it in for 25 minutes before the pain became unbearable. My gums are sooo sore right now. This is ridiculous, plus I can't even tell a difference between the color of my teeth now and before. The cost of white teeth is not worth the pain. This product is evil...avoid it at all costs.

Try it if you want to, but my recommendation is that if it starts burning your gums pull it out and rinse immediately. Do not try to muscle your way through it (like I did), cuz the pain does not go away. The product really is CHEMICALLY BURNING YOUR GUMS!!!!!!!!!

My dentist sold me this product for $75. I was later disappointed to find that I could have purchased online for less than half that amount. Rip-off aside, I used this product and tolerated the application pretty well, but later that night i awoke with shooting pains in my teeth. I used numbing tooth paste before and many times after and 5 advil did nothing to ease the shooting pains. Got about 2 hours sleep the fist night and about 24 hours later the pain started to subside. 4 days after there is still occasional pain. I used a similar Rembrant application a couple years ago, and there was some sensitivity but nothing like this. I used one of the ten-day application molds and will be returning the balance to my dentist. This product is scary and there is not enough vanity or money in the world to get me to ever use this product again. Horrible experience!

Got 3 Treswhite Supreme traysets from my dentist, with instructions to leave on for 2 hours. First tray got messed up, because I didn't want to swallow my spit that got mixed with the bleach mixture after say 10mins.... My gums start burning, so I removed it after 15mins.

Two days later, I tried the second tray, deciding to lay on my bed, so my spit will automatically go to the back of my throat without mixing. I've managed 15min's before it really start burning my tongue and gums. I couldn't believe how I'm suppose to keep it like this for 2hours, so I start googling and saw recommended time is 15-20mins (one website) and 30-60mins(other website). I start getting electric shocks in my teeth at 20mins and removed the mixure after 30mins.

Teeth looked white and nice, but I can hardly open my mouth because the cold air triggers sensitivity symptomes.

Next day (Today), I'm having so much sensitivity in my teeth and it's paining the whole time. My gums also feels very sore and sensitive. I'm rubbing toothpaste for sensitive teeth directly on all my teeth, and then rinse out the most. It seems to help for the constant pain.

I will not recommend this. Although it works well in bleaching your teeth, I can't believe that this pain and sensitivity afterwards is worth it. I'm sure there must be other painless methods.

Wasted money, wasted time. Who invented these things should go and do something worthy for the human kind. Keep this crap 30-60 minutes in your mouth, yeah sure.

I strongly believe TresWhite is much better than Crestwhite.
It works much better for me.

Having 10% Peroxide on your teeth for an hour works great.

Another difference is, they use a lot of Gel. So you are actually getting 5X more peroxide in each application.

Teeth sensitivity, I agree. But the reason is, you are getting stronger and better result due to the amount of the Gel on each application and the time frame.

I just got these from the dentist today, and they charged only $20 more than I could have gotten them from Amazon (before shipping). I cannot give much of a review on this product, so I was neutral on my reviews, simply because I don't know yet. The one thing I am confused about is a lot of people say they used them with times varying from 30 mins to an hour. The instructions that came with mine say to only use for 15 minutes. Not sure if the company changed the time since those posts, or if everyone else was explained to increase the time, but this would definitely make a difference on the discomfort experienced. I have used the professional crest white strips, and I noticed that the longer I left them on the more sensitive your teeth and gums become. Hope this helps someone!!

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. IT SENDS SHOOTING PAINS UP THE NERVES OF YOUR TEETH and MAKES YOUR TEETH SEEM ALMOST SEE THROUGH AFTER IT IS DONE.

again, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT... THROW IT IN THE GARBAGE WHERE IT BELONGS.

SHAME ON YOU Opalescence FOR PREYING ON THE VULNERABILITIES OF PEOPLE'S SELF IMAGES TO SELL SUCH A HARMFUL PRODUCT.

This is the first time I have used this product, and have used the Crest Whitestrips once in the past. Had no problems with the Whitestrips, but this product is a different story. I dont consider my mouth to be "sensitive" but I am experiencing quite a bit of discomfort after only 2 applications. I did get a shooting pain down my front lower tooth after about the 45 minute mark, and immediately removed the strips., My gums have now become a bit raw in between my teeth (probably from brushing) which is telling me that my gums have been very irritated. I skipped a day and will probably try again in a day or two. After only 2 applications, I can see that my teeth are a bit whiter, so it seems to work...... but ouch!!!
