I’ve worked in customer service since I was 16, and smiling to my clients has become a part of my conditioning. Day after day, I’d smile for 8 hours every day. I was never self-conscious about my smile, until I looked at one of my pictures. I’d have a picture of the happiest moment in my life that I want to share on social media, but changed my mind after I actually saw my great smile with those not-so-white teeth.
I love this picture, I really do… but my teeth are the color of my skin. I live in Chicago, where people have extra white teeth. Supposedly it’s because of the fluoride in the water, but I guess I moved here too late to take advantage of that. So what do I do? My solution – stop smiling in pictures, but there has to be a better way.
My eyes are still smiling, but this picture is missing an open I’m-going-to-eat-this-delicious-sandwich type of smile. I’ve tried whitening strips before, but it just looked like someone painted my teeth with white paint. I have discussed whitening with my dentist, but the cost was too big for my wallet. As much as I love my dentist, the idea of sitting in a waiting room for anything more than a routine checkup sounds miserable. However, one this packaged landed on my door steps from the great folks at the Smile Brilliant – an at home teeth whitening kit.
From the beginning, I was able to do everything in the comfort of my home. I made my impression at home, mailed out my mold, and got molds made just for me! These puppies get into all those crevices caused by my not-so-straight teeth. The application is very easy. Simply apply the gel on the impression, and put them in! The longer you keep them in, the better the results. This kit even comes with a desensitizing gel that I use prior to application to reduce discomfort from the whitening process.
Anyone with teeth less than bright can benefit from the SmileBrilliant! Teeth Whitening System. This system will not effect existing dental work and has shown to be highly effective on tobacco, coffee & tea, tetracycline, and various other teeth stains.
SmileBrilliant! Teeth Whitening Gel removes most stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (carbamide peroxide) is broken down, and oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits and oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this system. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening.
I sure am more confident about my appearance now and I adore my happy smiling pictures!
