Post sponsored by Smile Brilliant. All teeth whitening opinions are my own.
We go to so many flea markets and talk person to person to the owners when we go out to find all of our treasures. I also do weekly Facebook Lives along with Instagram Stories so I want to look my best, especially my teeth. I drink a lot of tea and my teeth show it!
So today, I want to talk about my new teeth whitening strategy that actually works!!
The Teeth Whitening System that I Used
The teeth whitening system that I use is from Smile Brilliant. I want to describe how it works and my results but I first want to let you know that I was always afraid of teeth whitening systems. I have “heard” that they will make your teeth weak and harm them so I was hesitant to try. But after using the system for a week, I knew that this one was different and that my teeth are as strong as they’ve always been with no discolored patches!
Some Facts about Tooth Whitening
- Teeth whitening will not damage your enamel like you have probably heard.
- You can whiten with this even if you have pre-existing tooth sensitivity.
- Teeth whiteners like Smile Brilliant do not make teeth white. They remove stains from your teeth to make them your natural color.
- You may not always see instant results depending on the amount of stain that you have on your teeth.
For more facts about teeth whitening, I have a fact sheet that I can provide for you. Send me an email or comment on this post!
How to Get Started with The System
I have never whitened my teeth before, even with the strips that you can buy at the stores, so this was a whole new experience for me!
When you place your order for the kit, you’ll receive a box in the mail with the supplies for the impressions and the gels.
The box also contains the instructions on how to make your impressions for the molds.
I’ll give you a quick tutorial on how I made mine before I sent them but the instructions in the box were really good and have a lot more detail so make sure you read those!
The first thing that you need to do is mix the white and blue putty together to make a solid blue mixture.
The kit came with some extra putty, just in case the impressions weren’t right the first time. I loved this because I didn’t feel the pressure to get it right before mailing them back. Luckily, they were easy so I got it right the first time!
Form the mixed putty into the blue tray that they provide and place the tray into your mouth, making sure your teeth are in the middle of the tray. I started with my upper teeth and finished those before I went on to my lower teeth.
After the impressions were dry, I popped them into the pre-paid envelope and mailed them off to the company. It was so easy!
What to do When You Receive The Molds
It took about a week to receive my molds and I started using them right away.
The important thing to remember when using your teeth whitening molds is that you can’t eat or drink anything for 30 minutes after you whiten your teeth.
I have learned to start whitening mine around 8:30 pm. It’s really a win-win because I can’t eat anything afterward so it whitens my teeth and helps with my weight loss efforts all at the same time!!
I usually whiten for 1 hour, brush my teeth, then use the desensitizing gel for 15 minutes.
After that, I go to sleep and wake up to see the magic of an even whiter smile!
I have been using this product for over a week now and I can honestly say that there have not been too many negatives about it at all!
The molds were so comfortable to wear even for over an hour a day because they fit my teeth perfectly. If I smiled, you would never know that they were there.
I was going to do a video while wearing them to show what a great fit they were, but apparently, I have a drooling problem because I can barely talk when I’m wearing them! I have read reviews that some people can wear them while working or doing errands so it’s probably just me.
After day 2, I developed some sensitivity on my gumline. I read the instructions on what to do about it and spread a thin layer of vaseline over the sensitive areas. It worked like a charm!! No more sensitivity.
As you can see in this photo, my teeth look whiter and I don’t have any patchy spots like I was afraid of after using a whitener.
I can definitely tell a difference! Can you?
