Snow — Is it safe and does it work?

Does Snow teeth whitening work?
Snow successfully whitens teeth

Yes, Snow is safe, and yes, it works. But let's have a look at the details.

Does Snow Teeth Whitening work?

Yes, the Snow Teeth Whitening system does whiten teeth when used following the instructions. That's because the whitening gel contains hydrogen and carbamide peroxide, the most common active whitening ingredients.

You probably won't get results that are as noticeable as you would from an in-office procedure from the dentist, but most people who use Snow do notice a difference in the color of their teeth.

Is Snow Teeth Whitening safe?

Snow is safe, but keep in mind that it uses peroxide to whiten teeth, which may cause sensitivity and shouldn't be ingested. That being said, this kit is made with sensitive teeth in mind. And aside from peroxides, there are no harsh chemicals used in the whitening formula.

How does Snow Teeth Whitening work?

The Snow whitening serum contains hydrogen and carbamide dioxide. To use Snow, you brush the serum onto your teeth, then insert an LED mouthpiece while you whiten for 10 to 30 minutes.

You should use the whitening kit for 21 days to achieve best results.

Snow works thanks to the hydrogen and carbamide peroxide in the whitening gel. The LED mouthpiece may speed up the whitening process, but it won't actually make teeth whiter.

Snow Teeth Whitening kits

is snow teeth whitening safe
This system is based on extensive research

Snow uses activating LED light technology, which has been demonstrated in some cases to accelerate the whitening process – although it should be noted that there are other studies that don't show the same results.

It works in as little as nine minutes per day. It targets all sorts of stains, from coffee, wine, tea, tobacco, and really anything else you can think of.

But it's not just about getting whiter teeth. When you buy Snow teeth whitening, you're:

  • Buying local: The product was developed in California. Each kit is made in the US and ships from Arizona.
  • Using fewer chemicals: Keeping in mind that peroxides can cause sensitivity, the Snow whitening system is safe to use, and is designed for all types of teeth, making it good teeth whitening for sensitive teeth.
  • Taking a stand against animal testing: Snow whitening products are never tested on animals.

With Snow Teeth Whitening, you have two kits to choose from: the Original kit and the Snow Wireless Kit. Both receive positive reviews, but let's have a look at the differences between these two systems so you can decide which one is best for you personally.

Original Kit

This is the original Snow Whitening system that rocketed the Snow name to the top of whitening kit brands around the world.

You'll see results from using it for as little as nine minutes a day, although you can use it for up to 30 minutes twice daily for stronger results.

When you order the Original Kit, you will receive:

does snow teeth whitening work
Everything you need to whiten teeth
  • 1 mouthpiece with patent-pending LED technology
  • 3 silver (standard) whitening wands with advanced whitening serum to erase stains
  • 1 gold (extra-strength) whitening serum wand
  • 75 treatments at just $1.60/treatment
  • 1 teeth whitening progress tracker
  • Wire for connecting to iPhones, USB, and other smartphones
  • An app which lets you control just how much you whiten your teeth (although one review we include mentions that it didn't work)
  • 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not happy with the results
  • 5-year warranty

What makes Snow teeth whitener different?

Apart from the app and the fact that it lasts a whole year, one of the best things about Snow is that you brush the whitening serum directly onto your teeth. This has several benefits over other whitening kits where you apply the gel to a mouth tray:

  • You get completely even coverage
  • It's less messy
  • The gel lasts longer because you're only using what you really need
  • There's no risk of excess gel squirting out onto your gums and causing irritation or sensitivity

The original kit is the most popular, normally sold for $199. But right now, it's discounted by $50, so you can get it for just $149. Click through to get your Original Kit at this special rate.

So, if you're ready to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home and for an affordable price, the Original Kit is a great option.

It comes with everything you need to get that white smile you've always dreamed of, with results lasting more than a year with continued use.

Not in the US? No problem! Snow whitening kits ship to wherever you are around the world. So don't let borders stop you from getting whiter teeth.

Wireless Kit—2nd Generation

snow teeth whitening reviews
The 2nd Generation Wireless Kit is sleeker than ever

The Snow Wireless Kit has a re-engineered, ultra-sleek design and more whitening power than ever.

As the name suggests, the Wireless Kit is, well, wireless. It includes all of the same great features as the Original Kit, plus the following that add extra convenience and reassurance to your whitening:

  • Water-resistant – Save time during your morning routine, and whiten while you shower.
  • Dual-light therapy – The mouthpiece uses blue LED light to whiten teeth, and red LED technology, which Snow says will support gum health, although it's not clear if the Snow red light is the same used in studies that show that red light LED can improve oral health.
  • Cordless charging – Just place your mouthpiece in its carrying case when you're finished whitening to charge.
  • Self-sanitizing – An automatic UV light sanitizes your mouthpiece while it's charging.
  • Portable – The new design is sleek and fully portable, so you can whiten wherever you go.

It also comes with:

  • 2 silver (standard) whitening wands
  • 1 gold (extra strength) whitening wand

The 2nd Generation Wireless Kit is yours for $299. Included in the price is a 5-year warranty—that means you get at least five years of whitening by purchasing this kit—just order refills of the whitening gel when you need a touchup.

So, if the idea of whitening your teeth while you check your email wasn't convenient enough for you, with the Wireless kit you may be able to reduce bacteria in your mouth, get a whiter smile faster, and take a shower all at the same time. Find out more in our Snow wireless teeth whitening kit review.

Snow refills

One of the things we really love about Snow is that, unlike some other whitening kits, with Snow, you can purchase whitening serum refills.

You an get gel refills

That means you can use the same kit for years to come – it comes with a 5-year guarantee, after all – and purchase the refills you need whenever you want to do a whitening touchup.

The wands come in two sizes:

  • Standard: 21 treatment sessions
  • Large: 42 treatment sessions

Snow Teeth Whitening subscription

Snow have just launched their Smile for Life Club, a teeth-whitening subscription service. If you sign up to this when you buy your kit you get:

  • The Original kit discounted to $129
  • 1 Free Extra Strength Serum worth $29
  • 1 Free Charcoal Whitening Floss worth $15

The subscription costs $29 every three months, and for this you'll get a new Extra Strength whitening wand plus free floss. This great deal continues for as long as you keep the subscription active.

In the video below, you can see the differences between the original and wireless kit.

Q&A – What's the difference between the wired & wireless systems?

How to use Snow Teeth Whitening

To use your Snow Teeth Whitening kit, follow the instructions included with your kit, or the ones provided on the Snow website. The general instructions are as follows:

  • Brush the whitening serum onto your teeth using the applicator wand.
  • Insert the mouthpiece into your mouth and turn it on.
  • Keep it in for 9 to 30 minutes (depending on if you want to whiten more or less or if you are concerned about sensitivity).
  • After your whitening time is up, rinse your mouth and the mouthpiece with warm water.

Snow also recommends:

how does snow teeth whitening work
Twist until the gel comes out
  • Brushing your teeth before you whiten.
  • Repeating twice a day for the fastest results.
  • Storing the whitening wands in the fridge so they keep their potency.

You also may need to twist the whitening wand as many as 30 times during the first use, until the whitening gel comes out.

How long does it take for Snow teeth whitening to work?

Looking at Snow teeth whitening reviews, some people notice their teeth looking whiter after just one or two uses. For others, it might take a few days longer to start seeing results.

A lot depends on how white (or not) your teeth are to begin with and what type of staining you have.

To keep track of your results, a shade guide is included in your whitening kit. It has a space to write the date you begin your treatment, and boxes to check the shade of your teeth before and after whitening.

You can purchase more shade guides when you repeat your treatments.

The recommended treatment course is 21 days, and by the end of this you should definitely see a difference. If not, you're covered by Snow's 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

Snow whitening ingredients

The ingredients used in Snow's safe whitening serum are:

  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Carbamide peroxide
  • Glycerol
  • Deionized water
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • Carbomer
  • Potassium nitrate
  • Peppermint oil

Snow Magic Strips

These strips taste like lavender mint

Snow also offers whitening strips that dissolve after 15 minutes. These strips won't slide around and they won't leave any nasty goop behind.

They are small and barely visible, and they have a pleasing lavender mint flavor. Each pack comes with 28 strips, and you can opt for a one-time purchase or subscribe for automatic delivery.

These are a good option for people who don't want to purchase an entire kit, but still want to achieve noticeably whiter teeth.

Other Snow products review

Snow toothpaste

Snow also has a toothpaste — or rather, a set of toothpastes — that help keep your teeth white. You get a morning and an evening toothpaste, called morning frost and evening mist, each containing Snow's gentle whitening formula.

The nighttime toothpaste contains special ingredients that combat bad bacteria while you are sleeping at night.

These toothpastes don't contain fluoride, and it should be noted that the ADA does recommend that adults and children use fluoridated toothpaste for optimal tooth and gum health.

Snow Teeth Whitening reviews

Snow Teeth Whitening reviews tend to be positive. Many customers now rely on this system as their go-to for perfectly white teeth. Let's have a quick look at what just some of them have to say. Product Reviewer

We had one of our Product Reviewers try the Original Whitening Kit. She used the kit for just under 21 days and found it to be easy to use.

She even looked forward to seeing her results at the end of each whitening session. She didn't notice any tooth sensitivity, but she didn't have any sensitivity issues to begin with.

Throughout the sessions, she did notice a progressive whitening of her teeth, estimating that they went from a 7 on the shade guide to about a 3.

Her conclusion? If you want to make your teeth a few shades whiter for less money than you would with in-office professional treatment, then Snow is definitely a good choice.

Sher's Snow Whitening review

Sher has a lovely smile but off-white teeth due to her daily coffee habit. She decides to take the Snow 21-day challenge and takes us with her on her journey.

By day 5 she uses the Snow shade guide (included in the kits) to track her progress, and by the end of the 21 days, she says her teeth when from about a 5 on the shade guide to a 2. She never reaches 1, but she notices a marked difference in the whiteness of her teeth and highly recommends the kit.

Snow whitening vs other kits

Let's briefly go over how some of the most popular whitening alternatives stack up to Snow.

Smile Brilliant vs Snow teeth whitening

Does snow teeth whitening work
This kit has custom trays

Smile Brilliant is another effective kit that costs much less than in-office whitening. In fact, it's one of the best at-home alternatives to professional teeth whitening. That's because the Smile Brilliant system uses custom teeth-whitening trays and the same whitening gel that dentists use in office.

So how does that work? Here's the process:

  • Make your impressions: Order an impressions kit online and you'll get everything you need to make molds of your teeth in the mail, including instructions, trays and putty. Make your impressions and send them back using the included envelope.
  • Make your trays: A dental lab will custom-craft your whitening trays, and then mail them back to you.
  • Whiten: Once you get your custom whitening trays and whitening gel in the mail, it's time to start whitening your teeth.

Hismile vs Snow teeth whitening

This kit uses PAP+

Hismile is another great option if you're looking for an effective at-home whitening kit, designed for people with sensitive teeth.

The unique Hismile formula features PAP+ which whitens discolored teeth without causing any sensitivity. Plus it's also got hydroxyapatite which is a mineral that is naturally present in tooth enamel and can actually help worn enamel remineralize.

If you'd like to know more about Hismile, you can check out our full review here.

Auraglow vs Snow teeth whitening

AuraGlow is another brand of standard at-home whitening. It's made in the US like Snow and comes with a 35% carbamide peroxide gel . They offer a Smile Guarantee, so if you are unsatisfied with the product before a trial period of 30 days is up, you can get a full refund.
