How to Whiten Sensitive Teeth at Home

Note: read all the way to the end for an exclusive giveaway!

I’m the type of gal who can really get behind the notion of ‘coffee till cocktails’. I start each morning out with a latte thanks to Kaare who has kindly made it his mission to perfect his at-home barista skills complete with latte art (swoon!), sometimes I have an iced-latte in the afternoon and I end each day with a glass of red wine. While I do try not to beat myself up about my diet; liquid or otherwise, drinking all those acids and pigments do not help my teeth stay white.

Over the years I began to notice dark liquids taking a toll on my teeth so I started using Smile Brilliant to brighten up my smile again. Initially, I was a bit nervous because my teeth are very sensitive, like I can’t even use popular white strips without some pain, but their team ensured me their desensitizing gel would help so I decided to give it a shot.

Each kit is completely customized to your needs and yes, even your mouth so before you start, you have to take impressions of your teeth like you would if you were getting a night guard or retainer. I have both so this wasn’t new to me and luckily, I got it right the first time! If you are new to taking impressions, don’t fear, it’s fairly self-explanatory and they give you extra molding gel in case you need to do your impressions more than once.

A few weeks after you send in your impressions you will get your custom fitted trays in the mail and start using your whitening gel. The first time I used it, I did have a little sensitivity so I switched to a sensitive toothpaste and stuck to a schedule of whitening every other day for 30-40 min each session. I alternated whitening with sensitivity gel which helped ease any discomfort immensely. It took me a little over a month to get through the whitening gel and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty pleased with the results, but more than that delighted in the convenience and experience of using Smile Brilliant. No trips to the dentist, a super-helpful team to help make you comfortable and get the results you want and it was pretty quick!  

Now the fun part… I’m doing a giveaway for one Smile Brilliant customizable kit! Enter using this link for the chance to win $139 credit! It’s open to USA, UK, Canada, and Australia residents and is open for two weeks. Best of luck, you animals!
