As a busy mom, our nature is to take care of everyone else and if there’s an inkling of time left, we carve out something for us. Right, moms?! Well, the reality is, there is never time left over for us. In fact, there is not enough hours in the day already let alone free time to do what we want, am I right?
After a day of feeding, cleaning, cooking, washing, bathing, entertaining, and playing, you collapse on your bed and hope for a better tomorrow. Often times, we neglect doing things for ourselves because there simply isn’t enough time. It’s not our fault. There is just too much to do and not enough minutes in the day so all of a sudden, little things start to seem like big things. Such as self care-and pampering ourselves. I’ve said this before in a prior post, but self-care is so important, especially for moms. It’s our way to feel a little bit like our old selves again and recharge. And who doesn’t need a little recharging once in awhile?
One of the things that I have wanted to do for years is get my teeth whitened. After decades of coffee and wine, my teeth has started to stain and it has bothered me for so long. I have had a goal to get myself to the dentist and get a quote on how much it would cost to get my teeth whitened but like I previously mentioned, who has the time? Plus, teeth whitening is not covered by insurance so I’d have to pay (lots of money) out of pocket for a procedure that would take time out of my busy day.
So when Smile Brilliant contacted me for a partnership opportunity, I was ecstatic! This was perfect and a chance for me to try a teeth whitening system without going to the dentist! YAY!
Let me tell you how easy this whole process was….
- Smile Brilliant mails you a package (comes 5-7 days after you purchase) with the kit to to make your dental impressions at home. The kit consists of the putty and plastic trays.
- You complete making the dental impressions and mail it back using the postage paid envelope.
- Smile Brilliant receives your dental impressions, crafts your teeth whitening trays, and mails it back to you along with the cruelty free, vegan whitening gels and desensitizing gels.
- You follow the teeth whitening process for about 7-10 sessions and you’re done!
It literally was this easy! I made the mistake of not doing my dental impressions correctly (I didn’t get the back of my teeth on the mold properly the first time) but they were so nice and quick to send me a new one so I can re-do it.
You have the option of doing the sessions every day but I opted for every other day because I noticed a little tooth sensitivity when I did it daily. When I did it every other day, my teeth sensitivity went away but I did have to do more sessions than normal. I also drank coffee throughout this whole process which prolonged my sessions as well. If you can stand going without coffee for a week, do it. I on the other hand survive on caffeine so giving it up was a no-go.
After about a couple of weeks, I noticed a significant change in my teeth. It was much more brighter and whiter and my husband even commented on them and he never notices things like this.
I am so happy with the results that I’ve been telling my other fellow busy mom friends about it. The best part of the experience? The fact that I didn’t have to leave my house to achieve the results I wanted. No dentists, no lengthy process, no hefty bill. What is better than that?
