Why I Love Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening + an Exclusive Giveaway!
If you know me well, you know I have had a long and arduous battle with my teeth — namely, my two front teeth. *Cue “two front teeth for Christmas” jokes*
When I was 11, my permanent front tooth was knocked out while I was kneeboarding, and I have since been through about 10(?!) procedures to replace my front right tooth, which ultimately became the imperfect porcelain crown that it is today. Plus, add in a handful of gum surgeries and you have a recipe (and pile of dentist bills!) for long-term frustration revolving around my smile.
To be quite honest, I have always experienced some insecurities when it comes to my teeth. And we all know your smile is so important! It’s a crucial element for creating first impressions, feeling confident, and communicating with others effectively. Plus, with all of the coffee I drink (it is the first thing I mention in my Instagram bio), I knew my teeth needed a little help in the whitening department.
Thankfully, Smile Brilliant reached out to me and let me try their at-home teeth whitening system, and let me tell you — I am so impressed! I have whitened my teeth in the past (read: frantically, about a month before my wedding...oh, and all throughout high school), but this process was much simpler (and way less expensive!) than the usual dentist experience. Plus, it worked wonders, which I cannot say about those frustrating whitening strips I tried over and over again in high school.
The Smile Brilliant Process
Smile Brilliant’s process is quite simple. You order and receive a complete system, which includes all the supplies needed to create your own personalized whitening trays. In my opinion, that is what sets Smile Brilliant apart! No more flimsy strips sliding around your mouth and irritating your gums. And you don’t have to go to the dentist for impressions to create these professional, perfectly fitting trays.
You mail your impressions back to the company (in this amazing hot pink packet, I might add) and about a week later, you’ll receive your trays that fit the exact shape of both your top and bottom teeth. Next, you start whitening! You will only need to complete an average of 7–14 sessions in order to see dramatic results.
Simply administer tiny dots of the teeth whitening gel in each tooth spot on both the top and bottom trays. Brush your teeth with water (and no toothpaste!), carefully place your trays on your teeth and leave them in for about an hour, and then brush your teeth with toothpaste.
The actual whitening process was so enjoyable. I hardly noticed that I had anything on my teeth, and it was so easy to do while we binge-watched shows on Netflix at night. In fact, it is recommended to whiten at night so you don’t expose your teeth to coffee, food, wine, or anything else after your whitening session.
Combatting Tooth Sensitivity
Every once in awhile, I experienced a little sensitivity, but that is completely normal. And Smile Brilliant has a solution for this common problem! Each kit comes with desensitizing gel that helps prevent tooth sensitivity or discomfort. I also learned that my teeth were most sensitive if I put a little too much gel in the tray and the gel seeped onto my gums.
My Smile Brilliant Results
The results were so exciting to see! After just a handful of sessions, I saw a noticeable difference in my smile. Even after about five sessions, my teeth looked much whiter — to both Brandon and me! As an avid coffee (and red wine!) drinker, I know first-hand the importance of having a reliable teeth-whitening system. That’s why I want to extend an offer for you to experience this goodness yourself.
