If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I have a slight coffee addiction. I drink coffee every single day. I just can’t live without it but my teeth sure aren’t thanking me for it. Oral health is super important to me, I brush twice a day, floss daily and use a mouthwash. However, with all the coffee I drink, my teeth are not the perfect pearly white shade I’ve always wanted them to be.
Keep reading to enter the giveaway!
I’ve tried whitening mouthwash in the past. It’s worked just ok but my teeth still always had a yellowish tinge to them and I eventually gave that up. I’ve purchased whitening strips, gone through the hassle of trying to get the stripes out of the package, torn the strips, making them totally useless.
I’ve considered asking my dentist about teeth whitening but unfortunately dental insurance does not cover it and teeth whitening in a doctor’s office is just way too expensive. Who really wants to pay over $500 for teeth whitening? I definitely don’t.
That’s why I was so happy to partner up with Smile Brilliant. They provide a custom whitening system that saves time, money, is simple and effective. I was a little nervous at first thinking the whole process would be complicated and I wouldn’t have the time to be bothered.
The process was so easy and Smile Brilliant includes everything you need with simple instructions to follow.
First, using the base paste and the catalyst paste, I created an impression of my top and bottom teeth. Then I sent my molds back to Smile Brilliant (they include the shipping label) and in about a week or so I received my custom fitted teeth whitening trays.
I was so nervous about messing this part up but in the kit, there is an extra base paste and catalyst paste just in case! Luckily, I didn’t make any mistakes and my whitening trays fit me perfectly!
Next, I used the whitening gel for 30 minutes a day for 9 days. The trays fit me so well and the gel stayed inside the trays so well that I didn’t have any discomfort and weird gel taste in my mouth. I was even able to curl up and read a little while whitening my teeth.
If you have sensitive teeth, Smile Brilliant also has a desensitizing gel that can be used after each whitening treatment. You can read more about tooth sensitivity here. I don’t really have sensitive teeth but I did use the desensitizing gel every other time I whitened just to be safe.
Now here are my results:
My teeth were pretty yellow but not overly so to begin with and I don’t believe the natural shade of my teeth will ever allow them to be super white but Smile Brilliant has made a huge difference in my teeth! Everyone has their own level of white their teeth can reach and this is mine. I am so happy with the results. The whole process was very easy!
Now, if you want to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, I’ve teamed up with Smile Brilliant to give one lucky reader their own custom teeth whitening kit. One winner will get $139.95 credit for 1 tray creation kit and 6 gel syringes (you can choose 3 whitening gels and 3 desensitizing gels or 6 whitening gels).
