Disclosure: I received this product for exchange of my honest review.
I have been on a kick this year to make my self care more of a priority. This is from my mental well-being to my physical health. Time can be my worst enemy when it comes to self care, especially during the busy school year. Thankful for awesome products like Smile Brilliant to make it easier to do things for myself.
What is the big deal with self care?
There has been such a great push for self care over the past few years. It has been so difficult for me to slow down and make time for it. This is more true since becoming a mother. I have taught myself to keep going for my family and to put myself last. This only leads to me getting in a rut and being exhausted. When I do make time for self care, it is life changing!
Self care gives your body and mind a break from the stressors that life can put on it from everyday tasks. Taking care of yourself will not only be good for your overall health, but it will also help build self confidence. Take Smile Brilliant for example.
Smile Brilliant is an easy self care addition.
If you haven’t heard of Smile Brilliant before, let me tell you all about it. It is the #1 dentist recommended teeth whitening method that uses custom-fitted whitening trays. The Smile Brilliant trays ensure that every angle of every tooth (regardless of whether your teeth are straight or not) receives an even and consistent coverage of their professional strength whitening gel.
Did you know that they offer custom-fitted whitening trays for 70% less and up to 5x faster? I received my trays in less than 2 weeks! I have used lots of different teeth whitening kits, but none have worked like the Smile Brilliant kit.
Why I include a teeth whitening kit in my self care.
I am a huge lover of coffee, or maybe it is my need for it? As a mom of 3, coffee is my go-to each and every morning. It even makes its way into my afternoons. One of the downsides of having all this coffee is the side effect it has on the surface of my teeth. Yep. My teeth like to absorb all of that brown coloring, like everyone else. I have even gone as far as drinking my coffee through a straw to try and prevent it.
The first thing most people notice about us when they see us is usually our facial features. This may be our smiles or even our eyes. For me, my smile has always led me. I love to smile! Even when times are difficult, I will find a way to smile. You can say that my smile is a huge part of me. So why would I not want to take care of it?
Drinking my coffee from a straw isn’t going to completely prevent my teeth from obtaining stains. This is why I have leaned on teeth whitening kits since I was in high school to help keep my teeth bright and white. There is nothing like entering a room with that smiling confidence! The only issue I had with previous teeth whitening kits is the ease, the sensitivity, and the uneven results. Don’t get me wrong though. I did love the advantage of just driving down the road to pick them up from the store if I wanted to whiten my teeth that very day.
The regime and results.
There is no reason not to share how easy this teeth whitening regime is. With a 2 step process, you can have your teeth whiter than before. My kit came in the mail with everything I needed: whitening gel syringes, desensitizing gel syringes, as well as the items required to create my dental impressions for my teeth whitening tray. Yep! For only $149, you receive all of these items. The other thing to note is that the gels will last 1 year if stored at room temperature and 2 years if placed in the refrigerator!
When do I do the whitening regime? It is recommend to do it before bedtime since you should not consume anything for at least 30 minutes after completing the desensitizing gel step. I started with the lowest time limit for the whitening gel, which is 45 minutes. I was able to bump it up to an hour and a half by the 3rd session. It all depends on the sensitivity of your teeth. If you teeth are too sensitive, you can skip a day in between as well as incorporate a few tips to help with all the sensitivity.
If I knew I wasn’t going to be eating late in the afternoon, I would do the whitening regime then. Sometimes doing the regime before bed wasn’t the best time. You know how motherhood can be: hectic kids sleeping patterns. Adjust the timing of your regime schedule for what is best for you!
Here are my results after using 2 complete whitening gel syringes and 2 desensitizing gel syringes. Pretty awesome for a whitening kit that is sent to my home, and I can adjust to my own needs when it comes to the time.
The ease of Smile Brilliant, plus a giveaway!
Take it from this mom who has used her fare share of teeth whitening kits, Smile Brilliant is one of my favorite whitening kits by far! The ease of the regime and the fact it is sent directly to my home is a huge plus. The results were awesome, especially considering my teeth were not extremely discolored before. Oh, and my husband even noted how my teeth looked whiter/brighter!
