Easy Whitening at Home for Moms on the Run

I was given these products for review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

I have been self conscious about my smile since … forever.  It could be because I wore braces for 8 years.  Yeah.  You heard that right. EIGHT!  I wore braces longer than I have been married for pete’s sake.  Those were the worst years of my life.  Not only did I have railroad teeth, but I also had 4 eyes, pizza face and the cherry on top, a flat chest.  I was the epitome of puberty.  But for thrice the amount of time most kids go through said puberty.  That being said, I am very grateful my mother put me through 8 years of tightening, rubber bands, no popcorn or caramel and floss threaders to fix my crunk teeth.  I love you Mom!

Even though the train tracks came off my teeth, I still feel a little hesitant to .. literally .. grin and bear them sometimes.  Annie taught us that you’re never fully dressed without a smile.  A smile is an important feature to a face!  It’s also one that can easily boost our confidence or, just as easily, break it down.  When my teeth aren’t white, I am less confident about myself and my first impressions. .. And my selfies obvs. 

Smile Brilliant sent me their wonderful at-home teeth whitening kit, and it is has changed the way I feel about my smile!  Now everywhere I go I feel like Lady Gaga is talking to me – begging to see my teeth ?? 

After my 8 year sentence of dental prison, my teeth were hammered.  I had 11 cavities, 3 of which needed root canals.  Basically, floss thredders (I just typed thross fledders and couldn’t figure out why my mac wasn’t recognizing it? … ?) floss thredders are the worst.  And 8 years of mediocre dental hygiene left me with holy teeth .. and not the #blessed kind of holy.  (Not the Florida Georgia Line version of H.O.L.Y either … ) And what’s worse than cavity laden teeth?  YELLOW teeth! My teeth were 50 shades of off-white and unpleasing to the eye.  

I tried Crest whitening strips and whitening toothpastes and they left my teeth super sensitive.  And who am I if I can’t bite into a popsicle or chew on Sonic ice?  Definitely not Jamie Ericksen.

Smile Brilliant’s custom teeth whitening system comes with everything you need to create your own custom-fitted teeth whitening trays!  It is so convenient that you can do it within the comfort of your own home.  Heck – you can even create these trays in your own bathroom if that’s your cup of tea.  They also come with a desensitizing gel that works magnificently!  I never felt one bit of sensitivity during the month of whitening!  I didn’t have to skip days which meant I saw results faster.  I could still bite right into my fudgesicles!  And my teeth were white.  Win win!!  And what’s even more of a win? .. Smile Brilliant has vegan and cruelty-free gel ingredients!  Thank you very much.  

This whole process was painless and successful! My teeth are several shades whiter and I am so happy with my smile.
