If you’ve been around for awhile, you know that I love my coffee and I love red wine. So even though I brush my teeth twice a day and floss daily, I’ve noticed my teeth seeming a bit dull and stained. They definitely weren’t as bright and white as I wanted! (I need help whitening my teeth and brightening my smile for all these blog and Instagram photos, you guys! Haha oh the funny ways this blogging venture has affected me! 😉 ) I was thrilled when Smile Brilliant reached out to me, because I knew I needed some help with my smile. It’s funny how subtle staining can be; it creeps up on you and you don’t even realize how dull and yellow they are until you start whitening them. I’m so excited to share my teeth whitening experience with you, but first, I want to thank Smile Brilliant for sponsoring this post and for being so patient with me. We had begun the process of collaborating when I realized that the product had not been tested for safety on breastfeeding women. I’m very cautious when it comes to things like that, so even though many dentists approve it for use among breastfeeding mamas, I didn’t want to risk it. They were so gracious and agreed to resume the process after I was done breastfeeding.
Make sure you stick around until the end of this post, because there is a special discount code for you! And believe me, it’s good.
Smile Brilliant includes everything you need in the kit and it’s sent right to your door. I think this is one of the best parts about it! We live in a time where we are addicted to Amazon Prime and their 2 day shipping. Well, this is like Amazon Prime for your teeth. It’s seriously amazing. I didn’t realize how much I would rely on online shopping, drive thrus and Amazon Prime as a mom until I became one! So, getting everything shipped to me was awesome and I was able to do the imprints of my teeth at home. It was really easy and the instructions were simple to follow. If for some reason you mess up, they include an extra catalyst and base pastes.
Once I received my clear retainers, I was able to start whitening! Smile Brilliant suggests whitening at night for best results, but I found I had to do it during nap time! Often times, my husband and I eat after Charley goes to bed, so that made it hard for me to whiten at that time. Also, I’m horrible at not drinking water or eating for longer than an hour (insert monkey emoji covering his eyes!!), so that was honestly the hardest part for me. I didn’t realize how often I drank water throughout the day until I couldn’t! I whitened my teeth for 45 minutes to an hour each time and followed this with the desensitizing gel for 15-20 minutes. I didn’t have any sensitivity and found that amazing. I had used teeth whitening strips years ago and those left my teeth somewhat sensitive for awhile. I loved that I didn’t experience that with Smile Brilliant!
I will continue to use Smile Brilliant to whiten my teeth and help combat the staining from coffee and red wine! I’ve already received so many compliments about my teeth and questions about what I use to whiten them. So here’s your chance to get the same results! I could have whitened for longer periods of time, but I’ve taken a slower and more subtle approach to whitening, just because of #momlife 😉
