It’s been a while since we did a truth thursday! :)
For as long as I can remember, I have always hated my teeth. I hate the shape of them, the alignment (even after braces), how they stain so easily, and how I constantly need more dental work on them. On my recent visit to the dentist, he told me because I grew up in the midwest where they don’t have natural fluoride in the water, I have soft teeth that are prone to all sorts of issues. I do occasionally have the have a sweet tooth, but Jacob will tell you that I have probably taken better care of my teeth than the average person, yet I’ve already had two root canals. I am told by my dentist that I have not reached the ripe age of root canals, whatever age that may be…
Aside from these issues, you will notice in my photos, I almost always smile with my mouth closed.
I’m already weird about where I’m supposed to place my limbs, but on top of that I always worry about my teeth showing! Jacob and Josh recently had the opportunity to do a video with Smile Brilliant, and I got to try it as well. Even though I may still not be happy with the shape of my teeth or how it’s aligned, at least I can work on taking out the stains. It was a surprisingly easy process and we get our own custom trays fitted to our teeth.
After getting the kit, you use the paste to create molds. You then use the prepaid envelope to mail it in and a week later you have your very own trays. After that you can whiten it on your own schedule. We typically wear ours just before bed when we’re reading or watching TV and do it once a month. You can wear it as little as 30 minutes up to 3 hours depending on how sensitive and how stained your teeth are.
Check out our before and after photos:
We’ve been seeing good results. Jacob’s has definitely shown more improvement than mine, since I love drinking my Diet Coke everyday. You can see our friend Jen‘s what foods to avoid post and learn how to keep your teeth white. I’m working on it, but one vice at a time! ;)
Hopefully, soon enough you’ll be seeing some bigger smiles in our photos.
ALSO, we are doing a giveaway for $139 store credit, which is equal to their Teeth Whitening Trays + 3 whitening gel syringes and 3 desensitizing gel syringes. All you have to do to enter your name and email here. Good luck!
