What’s better than cheese and wine? Nothing. Not the best for your teeth though, especially when you already drink as much coffee as I do. I’ve been thinking about whitening my teeth for the longest time. I’ve tried Crest White Strips and even strips from the dentist but I found it to be too painful on my sensitive teeth, and extremely annoying. When I didn’t see results after a few days, I gave up. That being said, I’ve been considering going to the dentist to have the LED treatment done… which is expensive. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in a collaboration to review their product, I was down, albeit skeptical.
I know that I’m not the only one who drinks coffee and red wine, causing years worth of stains. Nothing that’s exteremly noticeable, but once you whiten your teeth, you’ll wonder why you waited so long…
So, here is a before and after:
Good News/Bad News:
Bad News is that my teeth were quite sensitive in the beginning, also it burned my gums at times. I mean, come on, you’re putting a chemical in your mouth. What do you expect? Good news is, this did not last for long, after a week, my teeth and gums got used to it. It’s worth it. I’m literally wearing the whitening trays now as I type this and I can’t feel a thing.
The process was super easy. You will receive a package in the mail with everything you need to make your impressions, the directions are easy to follow and it only takes a few minutes. You then mail them back in the enclosed envelope and in about a week, you will be receive your custom fitted whitening trays.
So, technically, the directions say to not drink coffee while you’re going through the whitening process, that I ignored. So, I guess you could say that my results could have been even more intense should I have followed the rules. I put in the white trays for 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of the desensitizing gel every night for 11 days in a row, and I still have enough for several more days.
I would definitely recommend this at-home teeth whitening kit. The directions do say to keep in the trays anywhere from 45 minutes up to 3 hours at a time. I can only imagine how white my teeth could have been had I kept them in for hours. The trays are very thin and fit snug to your teeth, so it’s not uncomfortable. I just don’t like being unable to drink anything for a couple hours.
Needless to say, I have ZERO plans to stop drinking coffee or red wine, but now that I have this at home whitening kit, I can keep my teeth pearly white and not spend a fortune at the dentist… more money for shoes. Win-win.
