Working in retail taught me how important smiling is. Every single time I had a customer wearing sunglasses and had no facial expression, it was harder for me to figure out what he/she would like or simply, give my best. When I say smiles are important, I don’t mean a perfect Hollywood smile, but a normal honest one. Some people feel self-conscious because their teeth are not perfect but I feel that all these little “imperfections” just add to our character and charm. Although, being a huge coffee lover and an occasional red wine consumer, I know how important is maintaining your teeth white. Though, yet again, I am not thinking about the snow-white teeth that just don’t look natural. I am talking about, if I may call it like this, a modest white….which is why teeth whitening was invented.
When Smile Brilliant reached out to me, I was curious to try their products out, but then, because I whitened my teeth before, I knew that the result would not be 100 % honest. This is when Paul stepped in and offered to try the Smile Brilliant system and they were happy with this also. I believe personal hygiene and appearance really is as important for a man as it is for a woman.
I hope you don’t mind seeing pictures of Paul this time. It’s a pleasure having him as a model, he is very spontaneous and relaxed in front of the camera. The pictures that I like the most are the ones where he is in movement and most often goofy, because those show him for the funny man that he is.
Now, let me tell you about our Smile Brilliant adventure. What convinced me, except the very friendly and thoughtful emails from the team, was the fact that they send you the materials to do your teeth impressions which you then send back to their lab. A week or so later, you’ll have your silicon trays that have been done specifically for your teeth so you won’t experience discomfort because they are custom-fitted.
I was surprised to see that you need to do the treatment with the whitening gel for at least an hour daily (the upper limit is 3 hours) but it’s much more comfortable than the whitening strips. If you’ve tried them before, you were probably as annoyed as I was by the taste of Peroxide in my mouth.
Another extra with SB is that after you’ve done your teeth whitening treatment, you have another step to do, to ensure that your teeth don’t get overly sensitive. From what feedback Paul gave me, he did experience tooth sensitivity which I believe is fairly realistic when we talk about whitening, but that the Desensitizing Gel really helps a lot.
We started seeing a difference after a few weeks, but you’ll have to keep in mind that Paul was a bit naughty about not drinking coffee (fake coffee because it has a ton of milk) with a straw but at least he stayed away from red wine. There are ways to see a quicker improvement though. You can keep the whitening gel on for up to three hours, but we wanted to take it slow and only kept it for an hour. Still, we are happy with the results.
Now, it might sound like you need a lot of handy work, but together with the gels, you will also receive the instructions, the two trays where you mix the base and catalyst paste and the actual plastic trays. All you need to do is mix the base and catalyst until it’s a homogeneous blue, put the blue paste on the tray, put it in your mouth and wait for a few minutes to harden and that’s it.
It’s really easier than it sounds. You’ll have to send the impressions back to the lab and a week or so later, your silicon custom fitted whitening trays will arrive. The two gels that I mentioned before, the whitening and the desensitizing one, come in syringes. Just the be on the same page, these are friendly syringes because they don’t have needles, but will help you disperse the gels evenly into the trays which you then put into your mouth and an hour later- voila! All done!
