One of the first things people notice about you when you speak to them are your teeth. Like the sayings goes the key to your soul is through your eyes well the same can be said of you smile. The key to a beautiful smile is your teeth! I have never had any work done to my teeth apart from the few fillings I have due to cavities and some extractions. I brush my teeth twice a day and visit the Dentist regularly. Lately I have noticed stains on my teeth after the years of drinking tea and eating sugary foods.
So I have been wanting to get my teeth whitened for a while now, like many of you I have been procrastinating when to start. So when the opportunity arose to do a collaboration with Smile Brilliant I jumped at the chance and instantly said yes. This was a bonus as I could do the process from the comfort of my home, with all the chores and errands that needs to be done through out the day. This was one less thing to worry about, I was so glad I could do this at a time I wanted to and not have to worry about booking appointments.
I am extremely excited to share my journey with you all to achieving that perfect smile. Between doing my everyday chores and looking after my three boys I have neglected my teeth when it came to keeping them bright and white. The constant exposure to tea and sugars have taken its toll over the years. I have never tried any form of whitening process on my teeth before so was excited. Also a tad anxious to see if it actually would make a difference and make them brighter.
Before I tell you about the process let me talk about the company. Smile Brilliant are an at home, professional strength, teeth whitening system. One of the best thing about Smile Brilliant is that is is completely custom to your teeth. Once I received my box, I didn’t waste anytime opening it and started to read the detailed instruction on how to get the process going.
My teeth whitening kit included the ingredients for three dental moulds and all the whitening gel. There is four syringes filled with the whitening gel and four syringes filled with the desensitizing gel. Each syringe contains enough gel for four applications, so I had up to sixteen potential whitening treatments.
Now for the moulds, I combined the two pastes provided to make the moulds of my teeth. I am glad to say that I successfully made the top and bottom impressions on my first attempt. Not keen on that part of the process to be honest. Just made me feel like I was going to gag as I had never done this before so it was my first time. I persevered and got them done, however if you make a mistake there are two spare moulds. Which is very handy!
I put my dental impressions in a package which was provided by Smile Brilliant. I was determined to get my custom fitted trays back asap. Smile Brilliant are based in the United States and I live in the U.K and it can take a while to get them back. I received an email five days days later that my impressions had been received, reviewed and my official teeth whitening trays (fitted perfectly for MY teeth) would be on their way shortly. In my case it took around a week or so before I received my custom fitted whitening trays in the post.
Yay I started my whitening process straight away and followed the pictured instructions provided. The trays can be worn for anywhere from forty-five minutes to three hours. I only whitened for an hour each time and noticed significant changes after only two sessions. I whitened while working out, folding laundry, Ironing, etc. A multi-tasking moms dream!
If you have sensitive teeth like me you will be so glad you have the desensitizing gel. This is one of my favourite part of the process. After each teeth whitening session you apply the desensitizing gel. Then leave for fifteen to twenty minutes to do it job. Most people stay away from teeth whitening due to experiencing teeth sensitivity. Let me reassure you that after using the desensitizing gel this helped me immensely and it was a painless experience.
For me to reach my desired result I only used the treatment ten times. White without looking artificial and not blinding at all. There was also enough whitening gel left over to whiten my teeth again in the future. With the help of Smile Brilliant I am delighted to say that my pearly whites are sparkling.
