Summer is right around the corner and what better thing to pair with your beautifully tanned skin than a beautiful white smile!? Today I want to show you a look at my current teeth whitening routine, share my thoughts on the process, and also give you a chance to win an awesome prize!
Over the years I have tried teeth whitening strips and never really stuck to a consistent routine. The main reason is because of the sensitivity it causes my teeth. I would do it every once in a while but always wondered if it was worth the sensitivity that I felt. My love of coffee (and the stains that come along with it) have also dampened the process. Lots of coffee plus teeth sensitivity is why maintaining white teeth has never been an easy job for this girl!
Fastforward to now and my teeth whitening routine has not only been simplified, it actually caters to my issues with sensitivity! Smile Brilliant contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying out their at home teeth whitening product. What sold me on this particular product was the fact that they had a kit that, one – instead of whitening strips that never want to stay in place, this system involves applying whitening gel into a custom-fitted tray (like a retainer), and two – they have a specific system that caters to those with sensitive teeth!
Here’s how it works:
You receive a kit which includes whitening applications, desensitizing applications (if you choose the Sensitive System), and the necessary items to create a mold of your teeth for your custom-fitted trays!
To create the mold for your tray, you take impressions of your teeth with a mouth insert and putty (which was a very easy process), and send that in their pre-addressed mailing envelope.
After they mail you back your custom-fitted trays, the whitening process begins! The whitening process is really easy to do, and I usually ended up doing mine (and still do it) at nighttime. The steps are all laid out for you in their step-by-step instructions. The process includes brushing your teeth with water, applying the whitening gel into your trays, and wearing them for anywhere from 45 min – 3 hours. (I usually keep mine in for about an hour.) After this, you wash out the trays, brush your teeth with toothpaste and water, and then apply the desensitizing gel into the trays and wear them for 15-20 minutes. After that you’re done! The process becomes second nature after a few times.
My overall experience so far has been a good one! I really have been liking this teeth whitening system. And no, I am not getting paid to say this 😉 I am not getting any money to write up this review, just an opportunity to partner with Smile Brilliant to try out their product and let my readers know my thoughts. I haven’t whitened my teeth every single day consecutively over the last few weeks. Although it is not necessary, I would imagine you would see results a little faster by doing it every day. I am continuing to use the kit, and at the pace I am going, I have seen a nice, gradual brightness in my teeth so far. And if being gentle on my sensitive teeth means a gradual and natural overall brightness, I definitely don’t mind! Besides the desensitizing gel, the trays have been the best part! They make whitening SO easy!
