If you’re anything like me, getting your beauty routine in check for your wedding day, or just to look and feel your best every day, has been one of my number one priorities. Recently within my beauty regimen, I was searching for ways to get my smile pearly white and shiny in preparation for all of the pictures and events leading up to and on the day of our wedding.
I’m excited to share with y’all my three tips for achieving a white and bright smile with the help of my friends over at SmileBrilliant – and even giving one of you the chance to win your own whitening kit!
Tip #1 | Find A Whitening System Fit For You
This was the first place I knew I needed to start to get my smile looking it’s best, but I wanted something that was designed specifically for me. I have tried a variety of whitening systems before, including strips and LED light kits, but the results never lasted for me.
When SmileBrilliant reached out about trying out their system that is custom-fit for
Custom Fit For You
One of the best parts about SmileBrilliant is that everything is done from the comfort of your home, including your custom-fit impressions. After filling out a few initial dental history questions, I received my impression and whitening kit. With their step-by-step instructions, I had impressions ready to mail back to the SmileBrilliant lab to fit my smile and teeth within 20 minutes. After about a week I received my impressions back and I was ready to whiten!
Time To Whiten
To start the whitening process SmileBrilliant provides easy to follow instructions, including how to use the whitening and desensitizing gel. I added my whitening time into my bedtime routine. For anywhere from 30-45 minutes I’ll read a book or catch up on TV while I let the whitening gel work. It’s been super easy to incorporate!
After seven whitening treatments, my smile is feeling brighter, whiter, and shinier already. The biggest difference I notice is that my teeth don’t look as dull, the color is becoming brighter, and the slight yellowing that was occurring is starting to fade with each treatment. I’m loving my results so far and can’t wait to keep using this system so my smile shines during all of the important events coming up.
Tip #2 | Drink Through A Straw
Not only is this important if you are using a whitening system, but it’s also a good habit to create to help prevent deeper stains on your teeth in general. However, it’s especially important when using whitening systems because the pores on your teeth stay open for up to 48 hours post-whitening, making them more susceptible to deeper stain s during this time.
To help prevent this, I drink beverages like coffee or anything tinted (yes, wine too ladies) through a straw to help to prevent direct contact with the front of my teeth. Since I’m not willing to give up coffee this is the best way to make sure the time I’m taking to whiten doesn’t go to waste.
Little tip! Find reusable straws that you can keep on hand at home or keep one in your bag for drinks on-the-go.
Tip #3 | Keep Up With Your Cleanings
We all know how important it is to keep up with our routine cleanings, right? Life gets busy and it can be hard to find a day or time that works for you but keeping up with your routine cleanings and daily brushing/flossing is so important to keep your smile looking its best.
As someone who has had Invisalign, I know how important it is to stay on top of your dental health. I spent many hours at the dentist and worked hard to get a straight smile, so sticking with these routines is so
