I love coffee. Like, love, love, love it. I will sometimes go to bed at night thinking about coffee and get excited just thinking about waking up so that I can drink it. Ok, not that excited but you get the point. Coffee does not love my teeth though, I’m talking about coffee stains. I’ve been noticing lately in photos, that my teeth have been looking really yellow. Ugh. There’s only so much I can edit! When Smile Brilliant reached out to see if I wanted to try out their professional teeth whitening kit, I jumped at the chance! It was so easy. You’ll want to read the entire post because there’s a giveaway at the end!
Making Your Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays
The kit comes with everything you need to make your own impressions custom fitted to your teeth. I love that you don’t have to visit the dentist to get your trays done. You’ll mix the catalyst paste and base paste together (with your hands!), put it in the impressions, and put it on your teeth for 2.5 minutes. So easy! After they’ve dried, send them back in the pre-paid envelope (domestic shipping only– international shipping only covers 2 way shipping), and Smile Brilliant sends your custom fitted teeth whitening trays back to get the party started!
Whitening Your Teeth
I received my custom fitted teeth whitening trays in about a week and they fit perfectly! I then followed the simple instructions on the cards and started whitening. I whitened while watering my plants, cleaning the house, putting Madison to bed, and watching the Bachelorette. I also whiten at work! It is great to be able to multitask while doing something for myself! You can whiten anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours.
After you whiten, you will use the desensitizing gel for 15-20 minutes. Every other time I’ve whitened my teeth, I’ve experienced so much sensitivity. So far, I’ve just experienced minimal sensitivity with Smile Brilliant– allowing me to whiten my sensitive teeth. I whiten every other day which seems to help. I had a little bit of gum discomfort, so what I found that helped was putting a little bit of coconut oil on the roof of my mouth and gums before putting the whitening trays on (you may also use vaseline!). The sensitivity issue was why I was so hesitant to whiten again. I’ve never used a desensitizing gel, so that must be the secret.
Before and After
Ok, get ready for my close up! These results really blew me away. I knew my teeth had gotten whiter, I just didn’t realize how much. I’m so happy I tried Smile Brilliant!
