Hey ITC Readers!
Today I’m going to get a little more vulnerable than usual and talk about something that I’ve struggled with in my recent past. All of us deal with insecurites; it is part of the human experience. For me, that struggle has taken many forms throughout my lifetime: acne, having a small chest, cellulite, and more recently dealing with not having the same body I had at 22 when I was playing college basketball. Sometimes, these struggles are something we can’t change and instead must choose to embrace and love about ourselves. But, luckily sometimes these issues have clear solutions, and we can do something about improving ourselves.
For me, one of the things that has started to bother me the last couple of years has been the yellowing of my teeth. I guess too many years of my favorite coffees and red wines had started to take their toll, and I noticed a big change in my smile. My confidence in smiling faltered, and I knew I needed to do something. I started with some cheap strips I found at the drugstore, and used those leading up to my wedding. They were okay, but still not really doing the job. I think one of the biggest things I would change leading up to my wedding would have been to do a better teeth whitening routine.
Then, I heard about Smile Brilliant. I had seen others have great results with Smile Brilliant and was thrilled to have the opportunity to give it a try. The process was so easy because this company walks you right through all the steps to creating your own custom fitted teeth whitening trays with simple instructions. After sending in impressions of your smile, you get sent a top and a bottom tray as well as teeth whitening gel and desensitizing gel.
When the custom fitted teeth whitening trays first came in, I was surprised at how the soft rubber fit perfectly over my teeth without digging into my gums. After getting over the initial weirdness of having something in your mouth, you don’t even notice you have the trays on as they do their magic! Well, except if you’re a chronic snacker like me and you realize you can’t munch while whitening haha.
Although a couple of days that I wore the trays for a long time I did experience some teeth sensitivity, overall most days I experienced little to no sensitivity with the whitening. If you do have sensitive teeth, though, you can always consult your dentist or wear the product for a shorter amount of time.
I started noticing results very quickly. I was amazed at the transformation to my smile in just a couple of weeks. I highly recommend this whitening product.
