How to Whiten Sensitive Teeth

 Hey Everyone!

 Today, I want to tell you all about a really cool product I've been using for the past couple of months through a collaboration with Smile Brilliant - a professional, at-home, teeth whitening company. I had an awesome opportunity to try out this kit and share my results with you. If you have any questions at all please, let me know in the comments below!

First off, I have always been concerned with the health and appearance of my teeth. I got my first whitening kit in middle school and it was horrible! I remember the strips were made out of a thick, blue, waxy, sticky material, which was uncomfortable and impractical. Since that time, I have tried a few different brands. However, due to super tooth sensitivity, I haven't tried anything for years. Even though I don't drink coffee or alcohol, my teeth seemed to lose a bit of their brightness over time. To be honest, teeth whitening stresses me out. I dread the sensitive aftermath, so I don't even bother anymore. The last time I whitened (maybe three years ago), I remember my teeth hurt badly for days. I was nervous and reluctant to try this new kit, but I am glad I did.

The Process 

 I received my kit in the mail and read the instructions over and over to insure I wouldn't mess anything up. The first step is to make your custom impressions and ship them back (they give you the return package and label). I first had to mix together two putty-like substances and fit them into the trays. I pushed them up onto my top teeth and held it carefully until dry. It wasn't glamorous and I drooled all over the place. Do make sure to have a towel if you try it yourself! I repeated the process for my lower teeth too. Once I knew they were dry enough, I packaged them up and put them in the mail. Just a few days later, I received my custom trays. I've never had braces or a retainer, so this was very new to me. I can't help but admire the professionalism involved in the making of these custom trays. They are clear, flexible, and fit like a dream. I was so excited to try my first whitening session with them. According to the instructions, you can leave the trays on your teeth for up to three hours. With my sensitivity, I knew I should not exceed forty-five minutes. I made sure to follow the steps to exactness throughout the entire whitening process. After forty five minutes, I cleaned the trays and applied the desensitizing gel. This is why I love the product so much. I wore the desensitizing gel for about 25 minutes. While my teeth were a little sore for a couple hours, they felt normal the next day. This stuff is everything. In my case of super-sensitive teeth, it was much needed and appreciated. It is what sets Smile Brilliant apart from other whitening kits.

The Results   

I took my whitening process slow, just to be careful, and I intend to continue the process weekly as time goes on. It is true that my teeth were quite white before I even started. I will say that is the benefit of my no-coffee diet. I take pride in my smile and thought a slightly brighter look couldn't hurt (I also love trying new products). Overall, after about two months of using this product gently every week or so, I am happy! I was happy to get the product in the Fall because when I get pale the lower contrast makes my teeth look less white. I knew it was working when I noticed myself smiling in the mirror much more frequently and I even received some compliments! My favorite thing about this company and product is the fact that all of it was done in the comfort of my own bed (Netflix and whiten, am I right?). For the professional quality of the product, the convenience, and the results, the price is well worth it and very reasonable. I love this product and highly recommend you try it out! 

After a couple months of gentle use. Yes, my teeth where pretty white before...but they are whiter now;)
