For any of you that have followed me for some time now, you know that I am currently in the process of postpartum management. I’ve recently made myself accountable on social media to live a healthy lifestyle and drop that baby weight. I also discuss a lot about how women, especially young mothers, can incorporate routines into their day to help them feel a bit more rejuvenated and put-together.
Today I wanted to review with you a great product that I was offered to try last month. It’s the professional teeth whitening kit from Smile Brilliant. This kit offers white teeth with less mess and more convenience. For any of you that have tried teeth whitening strips, you know that they can be a pain in the butt. They almost always slip-and-slide off your teeth and they taste horrible. Smile Brilliant has improved the whitening game by developing a way for the home consumer to have their own custom teeth whitening trays shipped to their doorstep in a week!
So let’s go through the process together. First the kit arrives in the mail. It includes mouth guards and two dough-like compounds used to create the teeth impressions needed for your whitening trays. The process of creating the impressions seemed a bit intimidating at first, because you have to work quickly; however, they provide extra compound material in case you mess up. Call it my self-proclaimed OCD, but I redid my top impressions because I felt they weren’t good enough (lol). Anyway, it’s very simple: mix the two compounds in your hands like play-dough, place it in the mouth guard, bite down on it and hold until it hardens, and remove it. The specific instructions, including amount of time each step takes, is located on a user-friendly flyer included in the kit.
After sending your impressions back to the company, using the packaging they provide to you, you will wait ~1 week for your trays to return. When I first received them, I rinsed them in the sink and immediately had to test out the fit. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical, but they fit perfectly. Later that night, I returned to the kit for my first attempt at whitening.
The whitening process is a no brainer. You simply, apply the whitening gel to the trays and where them for the recommended time. During the whitening process, you are free to go about your daily activities easily. If find you are experiencing some minor sensitivity (which is totally normal with any whitening treatment), Smile Brilliant provides a product to aid in desensitization. They also provide tips to prevent irritation at the gum line, and are easy to contact if other concerns arise.
I was surprisingly pleased with this experience. I have seen other influencers for years, testing out teeth whitening kits and thought to myself ‘I would never try those because my teeth are so sensitive.’ When Smile Brilliant reached out to me, I decided to give it a try because let’s face it…I love my sweet tea too much! I’ve always had pretty white teeth, but I was feeling they could use some help these days. I also have in the back of my mind all the fun holiday gatherings I’ll be attending in the next two months, and how looking and feeling my best would be so nice.
As you can see, my lips were a bit stained in the first photo from some lipstick I had worn earlier in the day. A darker lip would actually make your teeth appear whiter, but they just seemed dull compared to the ‘after’. As I said before, I’ve always had decently white teeth…but they are significantly whiter after using this product (pictures really don’t do them justice).
