Christmas is just weeks away, and with Christmas comes lots and lots of pictures, get-together’s, and parties. Treating yourself to a bright white smile is a great way to celebrate the holiday season!
To be honest, I have always been a little insecure when smiling and showing my teeth. Despite my dentist forever saying that I have great teeth, and no matter how well I took care of them, they always seemed to look a bit yellowed. Having my dentist whiten my teethe was out of the budget, therefore out of the picture, and whitening strips hardly seemed to help. The color of my teeth took away from the fact that I’ve never had braces or a cavity, and I brush and floss on the regular. My one downfall is coffee , but even that I don’t drink excessively and I brush right after whenever I can. After I had Oliver, my teeth became somewhat sensitive, and I thought whitening was out of the picture for good.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a company called Smile Brilliant. Low and behold, they are a teeth whitening company that is specifically for people with sensitive teeth! I was unsure at the time, but figured that it was worth a try after i read more about their company HERE. Let me tell you what, the price may seem a bit up there, but compared to other whitening companies or professional whitening, it is incredibly affordable! Here’s how it works:
First off, you purchase a whitening kit, and you’ll receive their beautifully put together box, with both whitening and desensitizing syringes, instructions, and the materials to get your teeth molds made. Getting your teeth mold made is super simple, just closely follow the instructions given and mail out your imprints with the pre-stamped envelope provided. Extremely easy and painless!
Shortly after sending, you receive your custom made trays and the whitening begins! These trays fit perfectly and comfortably. You can whiten anywhere from 45 minutes – 3 hours. I started out at 45 minutes and worked my way up to the max time. Obviously the longer you do it, the better result you will get. After you whiten, you rinse your trays and then use the desensitizing gel. Trust me, you will want to use the desensitizing gel! I didn’t use it after the first couple whitening sessions and when I used it I had instant relief! The whitening works hard on your teeth as it’s removing years of stain, so the desensitizing gel helps your sensitive nerves in your teeth. Don’t forget to use it!
**Also, If your gums start to feel sensitive, simply rub coconut oil or Vaseline on your gums before whitening.
I got into the habit of whitening my teeth before bed, that way I wouldn’t have to worry about anything staining them right after I had just whitened them (it also kept me from late night snacking). Being able to sit and relax at home while my teeth are whitening is a huge convenience! I definitely recommend this product and I am loving my results so far!
