As a Travel & Lifestyle blogger, I never have much time to go to the dentist, especially for a teeth whitening treatment. I’m always on the go, so to spend two hours of my day waiting at the dentist is nearly impossible for me.
However, I’m a huge lover of wine, which is quite possibly the reason why my smile looked more yellow than white (darn you Cabernet Sauvignon!). So as someone who speaks to an audience and is photographed quite often, I found my smile to be a bit embarrassing. This made me consider a few dentists around my area.
Luckily, A few days after looking into dentists and whitening solutions, Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try their product. I was excited at the opportunity and decided to try something new. I had wanted to whiten my teeth, but didn’t have the time to make that trip to the dentist and really hadn’t done much research on other alternative methods. After much research, I decided that Smile Brilliant fit my needs.
Smile Brilliant offers a solution for on the go people like myself. Instead of taking 1-3 hours out of my time at the dentist to whiten my teeth, Smile Brilliant offers a teeth whitening system that can be used anywhere. Whether I am in Venice or Athens, I can use this at anytime and anywhere.
The process is also very simple. I received a box with impression trays, the base paste and the syringes. In order to get your teeth whitened properly, you need to send in your impressions to the lab. So I followed the directions on how to do the impressions and as I waited for the process to be complete, I was able to work on my blog. I lost no time doing the impressions and didn’t have to wait hours in a wait room.
After about a week, I received my formed trays from the lab and thus began my whitening adventure. The first day I used the whitening trays, I did feel a bit of discomfort, which I was told would happen. However, after using my desensitizing gel, I felt much better and my teeth didn’t feel as sensitive. There are about 3-4 applications per syringe, which makes is perfect for my travel junkie self. Instead of bringing all the syringes with me, I only needed two when going on trips – the whitening gel and the desensitizing gel.
The application was also very simple. After brushing your teeth with just water, you put in a thin line of the whitening gel inside your custom trays and put them on. It is recommended to have them on between 45 minutes to 3 hours, but I would usually wear them around 45 minutes – 1 hour depending on what I was doing.
While I whitened my teeth, I would read a book, watch Korean dramas, pick out outfits for the next day and even play video games. I went about my day as I normally would. After your done with the whitening, you rinse your mouth and the trays, brush your teeth with toothpaste and then put in the desensitizing gel in the trays. The desensitizing gel only had to be in for about 15-20 minutes.
I used the teeth whitening kit before bed and tried not to drink too much wine. After the first use, I didn’t feel any discomfort and the trays were very comfortable in my mouth. Once I was done using the whitening kit, I noticed my teeth were whiter and I also received compliments from others who noticed.
