I get a lot of compliments on my smile, and it means a lot to me. For most of my childhood, I had ugly teeth, and I developed the habit of hiding my smile behind my hands. As my permanent teeth came in, I made sure to take care of them. I am still sensitive about the appearance of my teeth, but my recent experience with Smile Brilliant just gives me even more reason to smile big.
As a child, I was a regular at the dentist’s office. I had soft enamel (and likely a sweet tooth!) so nearly every one of my baby teeth had silver fillings or caps. It was embarrassing, and I tried to hide my teeth. I made a huge effort to take care of my permanent teeth, but I had too many teeth crowded into my small mouth, so even though my teeth were clean and healthy, I still hid my smile. Thankfully, braces took care of that problem, and with healthy, straight teeth, I entered college with a lot more confidence and a smile that showed it.
While I have managed to keep my teeth cavity free, I haven’t been able to keep them completely white. My one-a-day espresso habit was staining my teeth. Over the counter toothpastes weren’t helping, and I was about to ask my orthodontist husband for his advice. As luck would have it, I was contacted by the kind folks at Smile Brilliant (www.smilebrilliant.com) about reviewing their product. I said “yes” right away!
I was extremely impressed with my package when it arrived. Everything was neatly packed, clearly labeled, and the instructions were easy to understand. It looked like something you would see in a dentist’s office, and looked professional and high end. I showed the materials to my husband, an orthodontist, to get his opinion. He said that the material used to make the mold for your teeth is the same as what he uses at work. I asked him about the bleaching agent, to make sure it was safe to use. He said it is the same as what you’d get at the dentist’s office, only a lower dose. So I was reassured to learn that all the materials were professional grade and safe to use.
The mold is extremely easy to make. The included instructions make it easy to understand what to do. They even include extra material in case you make a mistake. Simply mix the two agents, place them in the bite tray, and make an impression of your teeth.
Once you’ve made an impression, you mail it back to their labs using a pre-addressed, stamped envelope that’s included in your packet. My whitening tray was professionally made and a perfect fit. I had no problems with it at all. It reminded me of my old retainer when I had braces!
I noticed results after just 3 uses of the whitening gel. I was really impressed to notice a significant change so quickly. Because of my hectic schedule and having the kids home for summer break, I’ve only used the product about 10-12 times over a 30 day period, but the results are impressive! Take a look:
I really noticed a difference in my last YouTube video tutorial. When I watched my video, I immediately noticed how much brighter my teeth were! And that was after only 7 uses! I can’t imagine how much brighter my teeth will look as I continue to use the product, but I can’t wait to see. I’m already thrilled with the results, and if this is as bright as they get, I am still 100% satisfied.
If you’re looking for a safe, affordable way to brighten your teeth at home, I highly recommend Smile Brilliant. I’m glad I gave it a try, and I will continue to use it!
