Whitening for Sensitive Teeth
Happy Sunday, Wild Gang. Today, I'm talking teeth whitening (finally!).
Most people don’t know this, but I've been through YEARS of dental work. I've had a total of 10 teeth pulled, baby and permanent included. I've had an appliance, built-in retainers, two sets of braces, the list goes on. So I've always made sure to take care of the investment that is my teeth. When Smile Brilliant reached out to collaborate, I was super excited.
I've tried different whitening treatments before (Crest whitening strips and various rinses) but my teeth are so sensitive and I could never handle the pain that came with it. To be honest, I was a little skeptical to try the Smile Brilliant trays because if strips hurt that bad, wouldn't professional treatments be worse? As someone always on the go (and a girl who always has a coffee in her hand) I wanted something that was easy, doable and that worked.
I've been whitening for a couple weeks now (for a total of 8 treatments) and I am already amazed at the results! There has been minimal pain; I had a few slight moments of gum sensitivity but other than that, the process has been a breeze. And I can definitely see a difference in my teeth. I love that they have a desensitizing gel, too - you apply it after the whitening and it helps to "recover" your teeth.
So, what's the process like? Smile Brilliant sends a starter package to create your custom-fitted whitening trays. After sending back the impressions, your new custom trays arrive, ready to use. I typically whiten before bed (I allow myself about an hour to do both the whitening and desensitizing gel). It's super easy to pop them in while I shower, clean and binge my current Netflix obsession, Shameless. Check out the before and after results.
My kit is valued at $139 and Smile Brilliant has been kind enough to gift a free kit to one of my followers. Click on this link to enter my giveaway*. You can also use my custom code to receive $20 off your trays: somewearwild20
