Fun fact- our teeth aren’t meant to be WHITE.
Having a brighter and whiter smile has always been a goal of mine. After I had braces during high school, my teeth were badly stained and scarred from difficulty brushing and metal constantly scraping against my teeth. While the scarring is still there, I have been able to slowly work on removing old stains and getting my teeth back to their natural color by using various at home teeth whitening methods. It took me a long time to realize that “natural” teeth coloring varies from person to person, but it’s virtually impossible to achieve WHITE teeth- most teeth naturally have a yellow or grey tint!
In the past, I have tried every possible method to whiten my teeth. I’ve tried using whitening strips, drank coffee out of a straw, avoided tea and other staining beverages, and brushed with whitening toothpaste to try to get my teeth to be as white as possible. While these methods worked in the short term, they didn’t completely remove stains that have been on my teeth for years. Thanks to Smile Brilliant, I’ve been able to work on removing years of stains while bringing my teeth back to their natural color.
How does it work?
When you sign up with Smile Brilliant, you receive an impression kit in the mail. This kit walks you through creating molds for your personalized teeth whitening trays. It takes all of 20 minutes to make your impressions and the instructions are easy to follow! The impression kit comes with a prepaid shipping package to submit your impressions. Next, the Smile Brilliant lab creates your personalized whitening trays and ships them back to you.
Once your impressions are sent to the lab, Smile Brilliant creates whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly. It’s a similar experience to getting a retainer from your orthodontist, but no appointment required!
After I got my personalized trays, it was so easy to incorporate teeth whitening into my daily schedule. At the end of the day right before bed, I’d use my whitening trays while watching TV or reading. Once the whitening process was completed, I’d go to bed and wake up with my teeth a few shades brighter!
Having sensitive teeth wasn’t a problem
In total I completed approximately 12 one-hour whitening sessions. Because of my sensitive teeth, Smile Brilliant included desensitizing gel for after whitening to help with sensitivity issues. This helped so much and showed me that even those with sensitive teeth can use this product with great results!
I did not whiten every day due to sensitivity, but I did whiten every other day for a few weeks. I continued to drink coffee (lots and lots of it!) and ate and drank regularly.
My Teeth Whitening Results
Pictured here are my before and after photos! My teeth were pretty white to begin with, however Smile Brilliant helped me remove some of the yellow stains. They now have a more even overall color.
