Last week I made my way over to Dundrum to have my teeth whitened, courtesy of The White House. It’s something I’d always considered getting done (because, you know, I’m vain) but just hadn’t got around to, or kept putting off because I love coffee too much or might give up smoking next week (I know, I know) so when they got in contact asking if I’d like to try it out, it seemed like there weren’t enough excuses in the world to warrant missing out.

I went along on a chilly Tuesday afternoon to their sparkling premises in Dundrum (word of warning: the premises is new and the bathrooms aren’t up and running yet, so go before you, eh, go!) to have my 36-minute treatment (two 18-minute sessions).

Dr Fred Desmond, who is behind The White House, sat me down and talked me through the procedure: gel and accelerator are applied to your teeth, after which point you lie back and listen to the radio while the laser blasts off any stains that have accumulated over the years. I really have nothing more to say about the treatment – I sat back and listened to the radio. The only vaguely uncomfortable part was that I kept wanting to lick my lips or teeth, or swallow, and couldn’t – but, as I said, it’s only 18 minutes each time and it was over, honestly, before I knew it.

Results? My teeth are about three shades lighter than they were before. I don’t look like Cheryl Cole, and only one person has actually noticed it off the bat, but I’m pretty pleased with it – and noticed no sensitivity, which was my main concern when undergoing treatment!

Now, the giveaway part? I have one laser teeth whitening treatment to give away to one lucky reader, in either The White House’s Dundrum, Swords or Galway locations – so leave a comment below and someone will be chosen at random to have the treatment.

Closing date: Friday, November 19th at 11.59pm. Our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
