Hello lovelies, Happy Wednesday! In today’s blog post, I’ll be talking about how I whiten my teeth in the comfort of my home. I’m a constant coffee drinker so imagine the stains that build-up on my teeth over the years from all that coffee, a simple cleaning won’t be able to remove it. I’ve always wanted to whiten my teeth, but going to the dentist to have it done professionally is kind of outside my budget. But I’m so glad that they made the whitening process easy and affordable that you can just do at home.
I was about to just buy the whitening strips from my local drugstore when Smile Brilliant contacted me to try their Teeth Whitening Kit. Because of having sensitive gums and teeth, I was hesitant to try any whitening products. But putting my worries aside, I said yes to the collaboration and I’m so glad I did. I started the whitening process with shorter sessions (30 mins) every other day and slowly increased it for 45 minutes – 1 hour. After just two sessions, I’ve already seen a difference.
How does it work?
Initially, you’ll receive a kit which includes a base paste, catalyst paste and the trays to create your impressions. The whitening gel and the desensitizing gel are also included in your kit. Follow the instruction guide to create your impressions, this process usually only takes 5 -10 mins. Once you’ve created your impressions, you’ll then mail it back to Smile Brilliant for them to create your custom trays. (International orders must pay for shipping) You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for your customized trays to get back to you.
Once you’ve received your customized trays, you’re ready to go. Like what I said earlier, I started with shorter sessions which is 30 minutes and slowly increased it to 45 minutes, doing it every other day. It can take a huge chunk of time out of your day, but because the trays are customized to fit you perfectly, you don’t have to do a lot of work. You basically just put a small strip of the whitening gel across your trays, wear it and you can do any other tasks around. It is also recommended that the whitening process is to be done before you go to bed, so you won’t drink or eat afterwards. But because of my schedule at work, I had to do it after lunch while preparing for work.
Once you’re done with the whitening gel, you HAVE to use the Desensitizing gel right after. It reduces tooth sensitivity and it prevents new surface stains to form again. One tip that I got when you don’t have enough time for this process was to smear on a small amount with a dry toothbrush, and spit out the excess gel.
