Who is getting excited for the holidays? I know I am! Soon there will be holiday parties, glitter dresses and festive lights everywhere and I am so looking forward to it! Today I am very excited to share with you my recent teeth whitening experience in partnership with Smile Brilliant just in time for getting ready for the holidays. As a mom constantly on the go, I hardly ever take the time to focus on beauty maintenance for myself. To be honest, I maybe go to the hair salon once a year, I rarely get my nails done, and I have used the same beauty products for the past 10 years. Smile Brilliant reached out to me about their at home teeth whitening trays and asked if I would be interested in writing a review for them on my blog. Although beauty products are not a main topic here on The Titan Adventures I jumped at the opportunity for a couple reasons. First, because I believe every mom out there deserves the opportunity to pamper themselves and I felt this would be a great product to introduce to my readers this holiday season. And second, because my smile is one of my least favorite attributes and I wanted to see if whitening my teeth would help boost my confidence in front of the camera. Like most moms, I need coffee to keep me going and over the years I have developed yellowing on my front teeth which I am not fond of. What better time then right before the holidays to brighten by teeth and so I decided to give Smile Brilliant a try! Plus, as a extra bonus they were very generous to offer a coupon code and a giveaway for my readers, so you'll want to keep reading until the end of this post! In collaboration with Smile Brilliant I am happy to share my teeth whitening experience with you, and thank you to Smile Brilliant for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
To give you a back story on my previous teeth whitening experiences, I have used Crest whitening strips during my young adult life and have even had my teeth professionally whitened by a dentist about 6 years ago as a college graduation gift. Although the immediate results of visiting a professional dentist was nice, the process was so uncomfortable and time consuming. My teeth only stayed white for a couple of months, and I told myself I would never go through that again. Professional teeth whitening sessions can cost up to $500 and above, and I can tell you from experience that the process is painful, super boring, and the results don't last very long. With Smile Brilliant at home whitening trays I can get the same professional whitening system from the comfort of my own home, on my own time, and I can whiten them as many times as I want.
Immediately upon receiving my at home teeth whitening kit, I was very impressed with the clearly written instruction guide and how easy the teeth whitening process was laid out. The first step in the process is to make your dental impressions so the Smile Brilliant lab can make your own custom set of teeth whitening trays. You can read about the benefits of custom teeth whitening trays here if you are interested in more information. I have to tell you that Smile Brilliant does a great job of laying out step by step instructions on how to make your dental impressions, and I had my husband take some photos of me so I could show you just how easy it was. Once you create your dental impressions you send them off the lab and get them back within 7-10 days to begin the teeth whitening process.
I was so impressed with the way my custom fitted teeth whitening trays came out, they are super comfortable and the best thing about them is that I can do whatever I want while wearing them. I can work on my blog, fold laundry, talk with my husband and chase around my toddler all while whitening my teeth! What mom doesn't want that type of flexibility in her beauty routine! It sure beats making an appointment with a dentist, and then sitting in a dentist chair for 3+ hours getting your teeth whitened. The teeth whitening process is so simple, all you do is fill your teeth whitening trays with the teeth whitening gel and wear them for 1-3 hours at a time. If you have sensitive teeth you will be happy to hear that Smile Brilliant has made amazing advances with their desensitizing gel which you wear in your trays for 15 minutes after whitening your teeth. After that you are done! I started whitening my teeth about every other day in 1.5 hour sessions for a period of 14 days and started to see results immediately.
Now let's talk about the results! After 7 sessions of using the whitening gel to whiten my teeth for about 1.5 hours each I am very happy with my results. Since I am a coffee drinker I get major yellowing spots on the sides of my front teeth which I am really self conscious about! After using Smile Brilliant's whitening kit most of those yellow spots have drastically faded. After using Smile Brilliant my teeth are not stark white, but that's okay. Smile Brilliant let's us know that each person's results will differ, not everyone's teeth are created equal and each person will receive a different end result. Smile Brilliant is 100% confident in their products and they know that you will be pleased with the results. Even though my teeth are not stark white after using Smile Brilliant I am still very pleased with my results. My yellow spots have diminished and I overall feel more confident to smile. It was very difficult to capture the difference through a photo, but here are my before and after shots. You can find other before and after reviews of Smile Brilliant here if you are interested, and you will see that each person receives different results.
To recap I recommend Smile Brilliant for the following reasons.
Smile Brilliant teeth whitening trays:
*Allow you to professionally whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home.
*Save you time and money in comparison to having your teeth whitened by a dentist.
*Give you the same professional teeth whitening results with a more laid back experience.
*I can refill my whitening and desensitizing gels at anytime allowing me to brighten my smile month after month.
After my experience I feel a set of custom teeth whitening trays by Smile Brilliant should be a stable beauty product in every women's beauty bag!
