Up until different companies started coming out with their home teeth whitening products, the only way in which an average person could get the whiter shade to their teeth was to go to the dentist’s. There, you had the choice between many various procedures for teeth whitening which were all quite expensive and that were quite aggressive at times.
Luckily, in the last decade or so, we have seen great development and advances in the field of home teeth whitening products, such as different strips, powders and gels. Some of these products have been less than perfect, while some of them have been outright dangerous, irritating the gums and even injuring them and the teeth. Over the last few years, teeth whitening gels have become the premiere solutions for home teeth whitening and Mint Cosmetics is a great example of the conventional teeth whitening gel.
That is why we have chosen Mint Cosmetics as the one to compare with Idol White. There are some definite similarities between these two products. In its core, Idol White is also a teeth whitening gel and it in fact relies on the same active ingredient as Mint Cosmetics, the hydrogen peroxide. This type of peroxide is more efficient than the more commonly used carbamide peroxide, which is why it is employed by the best products on the market, such as Idol White and Mint Cosmetics.
However, there are also glaring differences between the two. For instance, Idol White contains some ingredients that are not found in Mint Cosmetics. These natural ingredients play an important role in the teeth whitening process and they make it much more effective and much milder.
Also, the use of Idol White is much more convenient than the one involved in using Mint Cosmetics. Namely, Idol White is applied by a pen and not employing a mouth guard which is the way in which Mint Cosmetics is applied. Also, once you apply Idol White, you need to wait only for a minute, while with Mint Cosmetics you need to wait for 20 minutes for the product to work.
Mint Cosmetics requires only one or two uses in order to whiten the teeth and this might seem like an advantage over Idol White’s month or two of use. However, thanks to the ease of application and because of the milder formula that is used in Idol White, it is still a superior product when compared with Mint Cosmetics and all other teeth whitening gels.
