Through the end of elementary school, junior high, and most of high school, I was self-conscious of my teeth. I had braces for a couple months in fourth grade on the front four top teeth to begin fixing my gaps and crooked teeth. In sixth grade, the left baby tooth next to my two front teeth fell out and unfortunately, I did not have a permanent tooth that would ever come in to fill the spot. I was so nervous about that tooth coming out that when it did, I was in the middle of science class and ended up fainting! Anyway, I was given a retainer with a fake tooth before I got braces to shift all of my teeth forward. Once my teeth were shifted, the orthodontist filed down my canine tooth to resemble the proper tooth for the spot in my mouth. Once those brace came on in seventh grade, I did not get them off until right before junior year of high school. When everything was said and done, I was actually very pleased with my smile considering all the years of braces and not feeling confident in how I looked.
After I got my braces off the only whitening treatment I ever did was the occasional whitening strips and then of course toothpaste claiming to whiten teeth in just a few days. As a coffee and wine lover, I did notice my teeth were not as white as I wanted them. I had friends who could afford expensive whitening treatment and I knew that just wasn’t in the cards for me. When Smile Brilliant reached out to me do a blog collaboration featuring their whitening kit, I was thrilled. After some research, I was quick to find that Smile Brilliant offers an affordable and convenient teeth whitening solution, perfect for the busy young professional that I am! I already have trouble finding time for doctor appointments with my busy schedule, so fitting in visits to get my teeth whitened just isn’t feasible.
I filled out a short questionnaire about my dental history and read plenty of detailed information about the process and best practices for the whitening kit. Once Smile Brilliant reviewed my questionnaire, they mailed me my kit to begin making my impressions. They send you molds and instructions to make customized trays for your teeth. I did my impressions and mailed them back the day I received my kit in the mail. Smile Brilliant emails me when they received the impressions and about a week later my customized trays were waiting for me on my front porch! The entire process is so simple and the customer service at Smile Brilliant is amazing. They are there along the way to answer any question you have.
I began whitening my teeth every couple of days and immediately saw a difference after each use. I wore the whitening trays for a little over an hour each time and followed up with the desensitizing gel for about 15 minutes after. What I love most about this whitening kit is the ability to go about my day and whiten my teeth at the same time. I’ve worn my trays as I get ready, lounging around the house, and throughout my work from home day. And don’t worry! If you are unfamiliar with teeth whitening, I got you! Here is an article from Smile Brilliant featuring 10 facts everyone should know about teeth whitening.
The cyber security company I work for allows me to work remotely at least one day a week, which I love! Since using Smile Brilliant, wearing my trays for an hour or so during my Friday work from home day has become a routine.
Often times a side effect of teeth whitening products is teeth sensitivity. With Smile Brilliant you will have minimal if not no sensitivity. I experienced a little bit of sensitivity with my gums a two of treatments, but it was nothing extremely uncomfortable beyond sensitivity to cold. Plus, Smile Brilliant provides detailed information on how to prevent sensitivity in the first place! Minimal to no sensitivity is an amazing plus for teeth whitening, so I was thrilled with how it worked with my teeth! Here is more information on teeth sensitivity straight from Smile Brilliant.
