My Teeth Whitening Routine

Alright, you guys it’s time to get real. Teeth whitening is something that I rarely hear people talk about, but as I’m sure you know- it’s SO necessary! If you’re anything like me and you’re addicted to coffee or love a good glass of wine (or 2-3) in the evening then you know how quickly those stains can accumulate. You may or may not know that each of your teeth actually has tiny microscopic pores that absorbs food & liquid everyday gradually leaving those unsightly stains over time. Although it’s not necessarily fun to think about, I think it’s definitely worth noting that this is an issue none of us want to have!

So, since I’ve accumulated my fair share of wine/coffee stains I figured it was time to do something about it-and that’s where Smile Brilliant comes in. I’ve definitely used other products in the past to help combat this, but Smile Brilliant is far different and I’ll tell you why.

First of all, I love the convenience of the process. Once you place your order you will receive a kit for making your customized molds. The process of creating your molds is super simple and fool-proof and only took me about 5-10 minutes! Easy-peesy. The molds are then sent back to the lab where they will create your customized trays. Once they have been created (right here in the U.S.) they will be sent to you along with the syringes containing the teeth whitening gel AND the amazing desensitizing gel (if you choose the sensitive teeth option). The gel comes in easy-to-use syringes which each contain 3-4 uses. The process is so simple- all you have to do is open the syringe, apply a layer to the tray, and slide it on your teeth! You can leave them in for 1-3 hours depending on how much time you have (I usually do it for one hour). There are so many awesome benefits to using custom-fitted trays as opposed to strips and you find read more about over on Smile Brilliant!

One of the biggest problems I’ve had with teeth whitening products I’ve used previously is sensitivity. I know I’m not alone in thinking that having tooth sensitivity is certainly not pleasant, and honestly probably not even worth having whiter teeth for. Since teeth-whitening products open up the pores on your teeth and also dehydrate the teeth, this causes the nerve to be more exposed which in turn causes the pain and sensitivity. Smile Brilliant has a an amazing solution to this problem. The desensitizing gel rehydrates the enamel and blocks the pores which helps prevent the sensitivity while also preventing re-staining! The desensitizing gel is used in the same simple way as the whitening gel. Each syringe contains enough gel for 3-4 uses. After you finish the whitening treatment all you have to do is place the gel in the tray using the syringe, and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Tip: I usually do this at night so that I can let the gel do it’s thing while I sleep. 😉 You can find out more about the desensitizing process over on their website!

One of the other things I love about Smile Brilliant’s process is that once you’ve used all of your gel you can always order more without needing to purchase an entire kit! Once you have your custom trays you can use them as many times as you need to maintain your white teeth.

Overall, I can’t recommend this product enough. Not only is the process extremely simple but it’s also way more affordable/convenient than going to the dentist for the same treatment. If you’ve been wanting to check them out now is the perfect time. You can head over to the Smile Brilliant website for more information and for how to order your kit.
