Hey there, friends! I thought I would introduce a new series I decided to do over here on helloalley.com, Wellness Wednesdays! Each Wednesday I’ll be curating a post on health, fitness, skincare, beauty/wellness regimens and much more! Today’s post: all about your pearly whites. Whether you’ve whitened your teeth in the past or never whitened them before, our smile naturally yellows overtime due to coffee, tea, coke products and aging. I’ve touched up with different brands of white strips before, but I’ve never found anything that could actually get in between the creases of my teeth (my problem area!) No matter how much I floss, my teeth naturally get more yellow in between each tooth.
When I came across Smile Brilliant’s custom at-home whitening system, I knew I had to try it. I did a little research and saw that this system was based primarily off of the fact that you get to create custom molded trays. I love this because every inch of your tooth is exposed to the whitening gel!
So How Does it work?
Smile Brilliant sends you a kit complete with whitening gel, de-sensitizing gel (if desired) and clay molds to create the custom fit! I was worried I wasn’t going to be able to figure it out, but the kit also includes instructions about creating the molds. Next, you send the molds back to Smile Brilliant (in a pre- paid envelope! whoop!) and a couple weeks after that, the team sends you your personal whitening trays and you are ready to start whitening!
I usually whiten my teeth before bed (while Justin and I watch a few of our shows or I catch up on some work) but if I’m home all day working from my office, sometimes I would wear them during the day, especially if I had an event that night! It’s seriously so easy and no fuss! I have very sensitive teeth so I ordered the sensitive whitening kit, however, I barely had to use the desensitizing gel because it never hurt my teeth! After the first couple of uses, I noticed that my teeth and gums were not hurting or feeling overly sensitive, and that’s when I came to the conclusion that this is high end whitening gel…that I can use at home. #win
Below are a couple before and after photos– it may be a little hard to tell in the pictures since my teeth were already decently white (I try and take really good care of them because of all of the photo shoots I’m doing for Hello Alley) but if you look closely in the before pictures, you can see how yellow the gaps of my teeth were! This stuff definitely works and I have a little retainer case Smile Brilliant gave me with my molds so I can order more gels when I think I need it!
I love this whitening system and I love having a bright white smile even more! Talk about a confidence booster! Keep scrolling below for a giveaway!
