At the start of each new year, I think about what I can do to be the best version of myself. It’s not about becoming a “new” me, but instead figuring out how to take better care of the myself, on the inside and the outside. One of the ways I’m doing this for 2018 is by starting the year with a whiter smile. This may sound superficial, but I really do believe that Annie had it right when she said “you’re never fully dressed without a smile.” You can have the cutest outfit on the block, but if you don’t feel happy and confident, it doesn’t really matter.
That said, when Smile Brilliant contacted me about giving their whitening trays a try, I was a little hesitant. I have sensitive teeth and gums, so I didn’t know how it would go, but they have special kits that are geared towards people with sensitive teeth, and they let you know how to adjust the process to ensure minimal discomfort.
So, I requested my kit and waited for it to arrive in the mail. Once you get your kit, the first step is to create the molds that will be used to make your custom trays. After you send your molds back to Smile Brilliant, your trays will arrive in a week or two. The whitening process can take anywhere from 1-3 hours a day, depending on your sensitivity, and they recommend using the trays from 7-14 days. It’s definitely a commitment, but if you have a quiet week and there are things you can do around your apartment (or a great show you can binge watch!), the time goes by pretty quickly. I kept my trays in for around an hour each night for eight nights. (Pro Tip: If you have sensitive gums like me, swipe a little Vaseline or coconut oil on them before you put your trays in.) Then after each whitening session, I would put the trays back in with the desensitizing gel for about 15 minutes.
One of the things I liked the most about Smile Brilliant in particular is that everything comes in carefully labeled wrappers with explicit instructions. Whitening your teeth isn’t always the most comfortable process, but it helps if it’s easy, and this certainly was. I also like how much of an emphasis they put on customizing the experience for you. The team at Smile Brilliant was great too. You’re not just another customer, and they are always happy to answer questions. Although I was sent my kit complimentary, I wouldn’t have agreed to test this product if I didn’t think it was a good deal. Smile Brilliant is much more affordable than a lot of professional whitening products, and you don’t even have to go to the dentist. Plus, check out how well it worked in only eight days!
