My Teeth Whitening Experience & A Giveaway!


As a lot of you guys may know, I have a slight addiction to Diet Coke and iced coffee. As much as I love the caffeine fix, I don't love how much they have stained my teeth over the years. I've legit tried almost everything except getting my teeth professionally whitened by my dentist and an at-home teeth whitening kit such as Smile Brilliant. So when I was reached out to by Smile Brilliant, I knew I had to hop on this!


The Process

This was a longer process than I thought it'd be, especially with getting ready to move halfway across the country. Two months before I moved, I was reached out by Smile Brilliant and decided to team up with them. I received my teeth whitening kit for making my impressions in May and sent them out the following week or two after since I was just beyond busy with work and got them back a like 10 days later. Since I was in the process of moving, I decided to wait to start whitening until after I moved to Houston.

The making of the impressions was super easy! You just combined the blue and the white paste with your hands, press it into the impression tray, and then put the impression tray in your mouth for both top and bottom. The impression had to harden for like 24 hours and then it was ready to be shipped back!

So fast forward about two weeks into living in Houston, I decided to start whitening. It's recommended to whiten every day for 45 minutes to 3 hours so I started out at 45 minutes since I know my teeth are super sensitive. It was recommended to do it like every day for a week but I could never get into a set routine when it came to whitening because some days I forgot and other days I had things to do at night. I just did it when I was able to and that was usually 2-3 times a week. I did this for about three weeks and I must say, I'm pretty impressed! Since I'm pretty happy with my teeth, I now whiten about once a week to keep them looking pretty.


My Issues

So I, unfortunately, I had some issues. Just like most preteens/teens, I had braces. Those braces really messed up the enamel on my teeth and caused a ton decalcification on my four front upper teeth and a few on my bottom teeth. The whitening gel basically enhanced those decalcification spots but they evened out the next morning when I woke up, for the most part. But for me, it's super embarrassing to have those spots because all I want are perfectly white teeth. I also have super sensitive gums and man this stuff burned if I did it too many days in a row. I had to be very careful with how much gel I put into the trays to not burn my gums. I only placed a small amount gel for the first 8 teeth on top and bottom to avoid irritating my gums in the back. I was advised to use coconut oil or vaseline on my gums to help but that makes me want to throw up so I didn't do it.


My Results

I'm honestly very surprised by my results. It wasn't the easiest process since I suck at keeping up with things but I'm glad I did this! Now my teeth aren't perfectly white but they are better than they are. I don't think my teeth will ever be perfect due to the decalcification issues but it's fine. Since starting this though, I have tried to limit my Diet Coke and iced coffee addiction to keep my teeth from staining. I hate posting these photos of my teeth but the results were pretty awesome!
