I was SO excited when Smile Brilliant reached out to partner with me. As most of you know, I lost my ability to fully smile 2 years ago, due to Bell’s palsy and it has been really tough on me. A part of me that I used to love about myself and that others knew me for (I was called “Smiley” in school) is now a part of me that I was ashamed of. It was no longer my old smile – it’s now my side smile, my half smile, etc. I honestly stopped caring what it looked like. I used to always want to have nice teeth and make sure they were pearly and white. Over the last couple of years, I honestly just stopped caring. Of course, I still have good hygiene and brush my teeth like I should. No-one is going to see them anyway, so what’s the point. I stopped smiling with my teeth showing in any pictures until very recently. I decided a half smile is better than no smile at all, so I’m going to embrace it! The results have been so good…even Kalep was impressed after the first application. He asked me if Smile Brilliant could send my husband a kit as well (lol). I posted my results after the first 4 sessions in the shots below. All shots were taken in the same location in my house and unedited.
The process is so easy! Once you receive your box, you follow the directions to make a dental impression with the putty and paste provided. If you have had braces before, it’s basically the same mold they make of your teeth prior to getting your braces on. This step is for the whitening trays to be completely customized to your teeth to get the most out of your whitening experience. Once your mold is set and dried, you mail it back with the shipping envelope included. In just a few days, your whitening trays will be on their way!
Once they arrive, it’s a breeze from here. In your box, you will receive Teeth Whitening Gel, Desensitizing Gel and a case for your whitening trays. Each syringe can be used up to 3-4 applications, so you really get your bang for your buck. This was the first time for me to do a whitening gel. I have always done whitening strips. While strips may be a tad bit more convenient, I saw better results with this process than I have before. Strips also make my teeth super sensitive after even 3 uses. My teeth have not once felt sensitive with Smile Brilliant. You can also coat your gums with Vaseline and coconut oil for less irritation, but it wasn’t necessary for me. Once you get into a routine, this becomes pretty easy and doesn’t take as long! As a mom, I try to get it done either early in the morning or late at night because it’s a little harder to have a minute to yourself with littles clinging on to you throughout the day. You can leave the trays on for as a little as 30 minutes or up to 3 hours. I do at least 45 minutes to an hour each time and the desensitizing gel for another 10 minutes afterwards. There is not a bad taste or discomfort while wearing the trays.
Smile Brilliant has given me back some of the confidence I needed to start smiling fearlessly again..even if it is just half a smile now.
