Whitening Sensitive Teeth At Home With Smile Brilliant

My smile has never been a problem for me. At 10 years old I noticed the huge gap between my front teeth. It was also the first time I wasn’t insecure about something that society deemed imperfect. At 12 years old I had to get braces to correct my bottom jaw to fix my top. In the process of fixing my teeth, my gap was changed as well. I pretty much lived at the orthodontist getting spacers, band changes and head-gear. Even during this awkward period, I was still comfortable with my smile because when the braces came off I knew it would be so much better.

Whitening Sensitive Teeth At Home With Smile Brilliant

After getting my braces off my teeth were whitened so you couldn’t see where the braces had been. I remember being so confident and happy in how straight and white my teeth were. Looking back now, they were the whitest my teeth have ever been. Since then I try to achieve my super white smile but still haven’t been able to get them as white as they once were. I brush my teeth regularly and even use whitening toothpaste. On days where I want them a little whiter I’ve even brushed them with charcoal.

Since my first whitening treatment 12 years ago my teeth have been stained with tea, coffee and who knows what else. I’ve even resorted to booking a dentist appointment to have them whitened again. But along with an appointment to whiten your teeth also comes at a pricey cost that I just couldn’t justify. I had to bite the bullet and wait it out for something less expensive that whitened my teeth just as great. When Smile Brilliant reached out to me for a collaboration I didn’t have to think twice about it. I was immediately interested and checked the price of the product first to make sure my readers would be able to afford it. Once I saw the price I knew I had to share it with others who may be feeling insecure about their ever fading white smile. Smile Brilliant has made it easy and cost friendly for you to whiten your teeth at home with no dentist needed. I enjoyed not having to check in with a dentist to see how the process of whitening my teeth was coming. Being able to freely whiten my teeth at home, on my time and terms  made it that much better.

Before sending me the whiting products Smile Brilliant asked me a few questions about my dental history. After sending in my survey I received a Smile Brilliant package which includes everything you need to whiten your teeth. Inside the package I was able to create my teeth molds and send them off to Smile Brilliant. A week later they sent me my custom fitted teeth whitening trays so I could begin the whitening process. The entire process was fast and easy to complete. I whitened my teeth every morning before work and saw my teeth becoming whiter everyday. Since I have sensitive teeth Smile Brilliant sent me a desensitizing gel to use after whitening my teeth. Even with the desensitizing gel I still had a gum irritation, I tried the suggestions from Smile Brilliant of applying coconut and vaseline to my gums before I whitened as well as taking days off between whitening sessions to let them heal and unfortunately nothing worked.

After 8 treatments I decided to stop torturing myself and just be happy with how white my teeth had become during those 8 treatments. I would recommend reading 7 things you should know before buying a Smile Brilliant Kit. I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have about the process in general. A couple of uses of Smile Brilliant and I noticed my teeth stains going away. I believe if I continued to finish my treatment my teeth would have become whiter than they are now.Whitening Sensitive Teeth At Home With Smile Brilliant GIVEAWAY: If you would like to win a $139 credit towards a Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit you can enter by clicking this link: The Smile Brilliant giveaway is open to Usa,Uk< Canada, and Australia residents and will close within two weeks from the date of this post.

    Hello Rochelle
    Really appreciate you sharing this.Do you think people with sensitive teeth and gums can use this? will be lovely if I caan get some “shiny like new” teeth for the festive season

    • You can definitely it if you have sensitive teeth. I have sensitive teeth and it didn’t bother me. The only thing that bothered me was when the gel got on my gums. But you can prevent that by putting coconut oil on your gums before starting the whitening process.

    You’re teeth are pretty. I need to be getting this kit because my teeth are stained badly. I’ve been using whitening toothpastes but they don’t seem to work. I’m going to have to see about this.

    • Thank you. I would recommend trying it. It definitely comes in handy. I know my teeth would have been whiter if I finished all the treatments. But it’s definitely worth entering the giveaway for a chance to win one.

  4. I can definitely see a difference in your enamel!

  5. Beautiful smile and a product that actually works! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  6. I have sensitive teeth too and have been using whitening toothpastes because I’m scared to go back to teeth whiteners. It looks like you got enough use out of this to see some change. I might have to give it a try.

  7. It looks like your teeth actually brightened so that is great to see. Sorry that it caused irritation but in that short amount of time it was working.
