As a young professional, the song from Annie, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” takes on a new meaning. If I arrive to work without a dose of caffeine or even if I am dealing with an unhappy employee, smiling is an unwritten task in my job description. Smile Brilliant reached out to me with an opportunity to brighten my smile. Below are four things that I learned along the way:
1. The key to whitening is the delivery device.
For the best whitening results, it is important that the delivery device covers every angle of the tooth so that the product is evenly distributed. I received a product kit paired with detailed information on how to create the perfect fit. After mixing the base and catalyst (which reminded me of soft Play-Doh), I placed one tray over the top row of my teeth to create a mold. When it hardened, I removed the tray. Then, I repeated the same steps to create a mold for the bottom row and the first step to whitening was complete! The products are tasteless and do not linger on your teeth. After mailing in the mold, I received the clear, custom trays (which fit perfectly) in less than a week.
2. More than 60% of Americans have naturally sensitive teeth, and I am one of them!
Two days before I began the whitening process, I used the desensitizing gel for 20 minutes each day to prep my teeth. This step isn’t necessary for you to whiten, but, if you have sensitive teeth like me, it’s a good idea. In addition, I desensitized for 20 minutes after using the whitening gel.The use of desensitizing gel after each whitening treatment is highly recommended to nourish your teeth.
3. Nothing, including whitening, happens overnight.
Depending on your needs, the whitening process can take from 4 days to several months. The good news is, the system is created to be customized. Whether you are fueled by caffeine each morning (and your teeth show it) or if you have light stains, the process can be tailored to you.
