AD: TACKLING INSECURITIES WITH SMILE BRILLIANT, THE AT-HOME TEETH WHITENING SYSTEM

12:52 PM

I received a free professional teeth whitening system from Smile Brilliant in exchange for writing a review on my blog. 

My younger brother Daniel got married this past weekend. (WHAT.) I'm going to do a separate post all about the wedding weekend, but during the weeks leading up to the wedding I spent a significant amount of time putting together a slideshow of photos for the wedding luncheon comprised of pictures of Daniel and his wife(!!) Olivia's growing-up years.

I did the bulk of the work while Stephen was on a business trip, and whenever Stephen is out of town, I have the bad habit of staying up wayy too late. By this point I felt like I'd seen all the photos in the slideshow at least 100 times, but then one night morning at about 2 AM I came across this one (yet again) and -- it sent me into a laughing fit. (You may have witnessed this event via instagram stories πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)




The first thing I noticed was Rebekah's outfit. But then I noticed my outfit, then Sarah's, then Daniels... Before long I was nearly crying - sitting on my bed in the middle of the night, by myself, trying not to laugh too loudly to wake up my two sleeping children.

The sad  funny thing is, I totally remember that shirt. And I remember wearing it often πŸ™ˆ  , not just on family vacations where it was safe to bet I wouldn't see any of these people again. But not only was my outfit choice questionable...WHAT IS MY SMILE DOING?!?!? Am I happy? Am I in pain? No one will ever know. πŸ˜‚


High school (when this photo was taken) is a time when it seems like insecurities are on display for all the world to see! And one of my biggest insecurities during high school was my smile.

Can you guess why?!
I'll give you a hint...

THAT TINY LITTLE GAP! 

I can't even tell you how many hours were spent in front of the mirror practicing smiles that could potentially draw attention to the dimple on my right cheek and away from that tiny space. πŸ™ˆ (A space that I now realize likely went entirely unnoticed by anyone other than me. πŸ™„)


I was one the of the few in my friend group who never had braces or retainers to make my teeth perfectly straight, so I guess you could say over-analyzing my smile was a fairly common pastime.

When I got to college, however, I started worrying less about that tiny gap between my two front teeth and more about the coloring of my teeth. I would often compare the brightness of my smile with other people's and get really self-conscious when it didn't measure up.

A few months ago, I was approached by a teeth whitening company called Smile Brilliant, that offers a professional teeth whitening system that can be done entirely from home. As someone who tends to avoid the dentist as much as possible (😬) I thought this was a great option for me! It had been a little over 5 years since I'd done any teeth-whitening, and I was excited to try something new. Smile Brilliant was kind enough to send me all the materials needed to provide me with a whiter, brighter smile from home!

You can read more about how the process works by visiting the  Smile Brilliant Website, but to sum up my experience, I have been extremely pleased with the results! (I particularly loved feeling like a dental assistant at the beginning of the process when I got to take impressions of my own teeth, and fulfill my life-long dream of having whitening trays that look a lot like retainers (although serve an entirely different purpose), hahaha. Stephen thought I was being a little ridiculous with how giddy I was when I put my whitening trays in for the first time and was expressing my excitement about how my voice sounded while I was wearing them. πŸ˜‚


^^I may have been a little over-confident in my impression-taking capabilities. I took this picture feeling like I was instantly qualified to apply for any dental assisting job in the area...only to have these very impressions thrown out. I received a second packet in the mail with directions to redo my impressions correctlyπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚  (I guess they weren't deep enough the first time?) If this also happens to you...don't take it personally πŸ˜….

I really enjoyed my experience with Smile Brilliant's teeth whitening system. I found it was very effective and I only had a few, very minor issues with teeth/gums sensitivity (although I know that varies a lot from person to person). The hardest part for me was simply remembering to put the trays in! I typically delay getting ready for bed until the last minute possible, but to get the best results with this system you want to leave the whitening gel on your teeth from 30 minutes-2 hours, and the desensitizing gel for an additional 30 minutes, so Stephen would often have to help me remember to start the process shortly after finishing dinner. 

One thing I think is important to mention is that your teeth will look a little speckled after applying the whitening gel. This worried me initially because I thought the speckled parts would stay whiter and my teeth would look that way permanently. I emailed the company and was assured that this was normal! It turns out that the whitening process temporarily dehydrates the teeth, which can appear as white spots or patches. When your teeth remineralize and re-hydrate, the speckles go away! (The desensitizing gel that comes with the kit also helps re-hydrate your teeth.)

Although it doesn't look like anything drastic, I've definitely been able to see a whiter smile develop over the past few weeks!

...Now if only I could say that was the end of all of my insecurities... πŸ˜πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚

  40. All things considered, my dental situation was really fortunate. I follow a practice that earns me praise from the dentist: I brush twice a day with an electric toothbrush and stain-removing toothpaste. I also use a fluoride rinse and floss at night. But after everything, I still have to cope with some stains. Since I drink a lot of tea, not even my meticulous regimen can stop my daily cup of Irish breakfast from turning a little discolored. I could need some assistance with teeth whitening (red wine is also my preferred evening beverage, which doesn't help).
