There’s an old saying, the couple that whitens their teeth together, stays together…or something like that 🙂 I’ve talked about Smile Brilliant before in this post, and I finally convinced Cody that using Smile Brilliant won’t hurt his sensitive teeth. And guess what? I was right! If you have sensitive teeth though, then it might be a good idea to check out something like this fluoridex rinse to help you deal with your sensitivity.
I’ve been using Smile Brilliant for a little over a year, and it is definitely one of my favorite teeth whitening products. Prior to Smile Brilliant, custom fitted trays were only available at the dentist office for $500+. But now thanks to Smile Brilliant, you can get professional level teeth whitening at home for $119.95! They send you a kit to make impressions of your teeth (it also includes the desensitizing and whitening gel), you mail your impressions to them in the prepaid envelope, and a couple weeks later your custom trays arrive in the mail. Let me tell you, the results are sooooo good! I try to be pretty consistent with whitening my teeth, but with moving this summer and all the other craziness going on, I was slacking in the teeth whitening department. My before picture is from about two months with no whitening trays (other than my whitening toothpaste), and my after picture is from whitening three times a week for a month. Now that I have my teeth back to the whiteness I prefer, I’ll only whiten them once a week or every other week. I love using teeth whitening kits. It saved me from having to go to the dentist when it comes to whitening. But not everyone shares the same idea though. You don’t have to take it into your own hands to do something like this. This is why looking into something like cosmetic dentist San Diego can lead you to finding a professional who can do treatments like this for you, professionally. It’s just having these home kits makes it easier for me, but everyone is different.
Cody, oh Cody. Let me start by saying that guy is the biggest baby when it comes to his teeth. I don’t know how he could wreck on his four wheeler and get a foot peg through his leg and not even notice it until his riding boot was filled with blood (was that too graphic?), but if the dentist blows cold air on his teeth, he cringes in pain. Anyways, you get my point. The boy’s got sensitive teeth. To try and combat his tooth sensitivity, we switched to a sensitive toothpaste (I probably should have bought that for him years ago #badwife), made sure he always put the desensitizing gel in for 15 minutes before the whitening gel, and gradually introduced his teeth to whitening with 30 minute applications and worked his way up to 1 1/2 hours. He said when he first put the trays in, it caused some pain but the pain went away within a minute. He didn’t keep the trays in as long as I did (I leave mine in for 3 hours), but he still got pretty good results. And he drinks coffee every morning too, so I was kind of surprised that his results were so good.
