I am so excited to be partnering with Smile Brilliant to share an easy and effective teeth whitening system! I’m also going to do a GIVEAWAY for my beautiful followers so that one of you can win a teeth whitening kit! And of course, I’ve got a discount code waiting for everyone!
Let me start with a couple questions: Do you like to drink coffee? Do you indulge in red wine every once in awhile (or like most nights)? Are you busy AF? If you’re sitting here reading my blog, I have to assume the answer to most of these is an overwhelming YES. Life is busy. Is it too much to want white teeth, too?
So let me tell you about a girl named Ashley in the fifth grade (no relation). This girl Ashley (again, totally not me), was just starting to realize boys were cuuuuuuute. Ashley started trying to talk to boys more, until one day, a boy said something that embarrassed her so much she thought she died right there. The boy commented on how yellow her teeth looked. Needless to say, Ashley was crushed (and awkward around boys for A LONG TIME). Poor Ashley.
Okay I’ll come clean, that story is about me. But that kind of situation can stick with you! I’ve definitely been conscious of teeth whiteners for a long time, and have tried a few different things. Of course, I’ve tried white strips. Those commercials brag that you can go out and do errands while using the strips…umm no. Those teeth whitening strips always slipped off of my teeth by the end of the treatment, and I felt like I needed day after day of continual use to see a tiny change.
I’ve also tried that charcoal powder for teeth whitening. First of all, I looked like a zombie. Second, it did not work. For those that aren’t familiar with this method, you dunk a toothbrush in charcoal powder and brush, and it is supposed to whiten you teeth. Well, let’s just say that’s a no from me.
TEETH WHITENING WITH SMILE BRILLIANT
Smile Brilliant was literally so easy to use. The whole beauty of Smile Brilliant is that you get custom trays to fit your teeth. This is so great, because it keeps the solution in place and is super comfortable during your teeth whitening.
It was so fun making the impressions for the custom trays! You essentially mix up some putty and bite into it. Then, once it dries, you pack everything up and send it off to the Smile Brilliant labs, where they make you custom trays. It was not messy at all, and the trays you get back are amazing quality. They aren’t rigid trays, and are soft and comfortable for whitening.
Your Smile Brilliant kit (if you choose the sensitive option) comes with two types of gel solutions: one is for whitening, and the other is for desensitizing. From there:
- Floss your teeth!
- Put the whitening solution in trays, place in mouth, and multitask for 45 minutes to 3 hours (up to you)
- Brush your teeth
- Put desensitizing solution in trays, place in mouth, and chill for 15 minutes
Super easy! Though it is a lengthy process, it’s totally worth it AND you can get so much done while you’re whitening. Clean, get ready for the next day, work on the computer…I’m all about multitasking, and this makes it possible to actually whiten while you live your life. Here are my results (we’re about to get up close and personal, but that’s alright, lol).
My only caveat is that I couldn’t really talk with the trays in, which is fine. The less I talk the more I work. LOL
Because my teeth are really sensitive, I started by whitening every other day for 45 minutes and worked up to every day as my teeth tolerated it. I will say, I skipped the desensitizing gel one time (mostly because I wanted to see if it worked to decrease sensitivity), and have to say it is amazing stuff that helps so much!
I saw results after the first night of whitening, and they only keep getting better! Teeth whitening has also made me more conscious of protecting my new pearly whites…I even started drinking my morning coffee out of a straw!
If you’re looking for a whitening solution without breaking the bank, I truly do recommend this professional whitening system. I can honestly say that I will never use those white strips again. Smile Brilliant is such a great option for teeth whitening, and you can get insane results in a couple weeks! If you have an event coming up, I seriously recommend it!
