Today I have a small obsession to share with you. One that I have had for many years and that some may say is borderline concerning (no shame!). It’s something that has caused me to not clearly concentrate when talking to others during conversations and can automatically attract me to someone almost immediately. Now is my time to clear the air and get it off my chest, and Ive decided to let you know first! I looooovvvvveeeeeee white teeth!!! This obsession literally dates back to summer camp 2001 when I had a huge crush on my camp counselor because he wore a retainer (complete dork I know!), but when he had it removed I was mesmerized by his beautiful white smile!! 🙂 If you’re wondering why I am using todays blog post as a confessional booth, its because I recently received the opportunity to make my teeth white and Ive been crushing on my own smile lately!
A few weeks ago, I teamed up with the amazing folks over at “Smile Brilliant” to test their teeth whitening system! They sent me a super cute kit complete with whitening gel, desensitizing gel, and materials to make my very own custom fitted trays. After making impressions of my teeth and mailing them to the company, I received my trays in the mail two weeks later! Now, to be completely honest this isn’t my first time using a teeth whitening system or having my own trays. I had them made through my dentist about six years ago and wore them sparingly for about three years. I was recently thinking of ordering more gel through my dentist but was presented with this opportunity and decided to try a new product to see how it worked on my teeth. I’ve listed below the pros and cons to trying the “Smile Brilliant” system after using it for two weeks.
- The system contains desensitizing gel that helps those who have sensitive teeth and can’t handle teeth bleaching. My previous trays did not, which made my teeth super sensitive when using the gel.
- They trays are fitted perfectly for your teeth and do not have much plastic. I say this because my previous trays were fitted to my teeth AND gums, which caused the gel to touch my gums and caused irritation.
- You receive plenty of whitening and desensitizing gel! I received 4 syringes of each (8 in total), which technically is supposed to provide 3-4 treatments per syringe, but it lasted longer!
- With any teeth whitening system you risk irritating your gums with the bleaching gel. This happened to me during one of my treatments. My gums started to burn and swell but I removed my trays immediately and I gave the whitening a break for three days. However, I was told by a “Smile Brilliant” Rep that its best to place Vaseline on your gums when whitening to avoid irritation, and it worked!
Overall, I loved the “Smile Brilliant” whitening system! I thought I had pearly white teeth until my before and after pictures proved that was a lie! lol Now, I can proudly walk around with my teeth on full blast and crushing on myself! But I have even better news, YOU CAN TOO!!!!! Smile Brilliant and I are giving away a complete T3 sensitive smile creation kit (valued at $139) for FREEEE!! Click the link below to enter!
