As we get older, most adults find that their pearly whites have become yellow teeth. Perhaps it is due to drinking a lot of coffee (raising my hand for this one) or perhaps it is simply due to the overall effect of time. But I think most all of us experience it on some level. My smile is one of my very best physical assets. I have naturally straight teeth and a nice smile. So to be honest with you, it has been especially disheartening watch my megawatt grin start to fade.
Since my teeth are a point of pride for me, I don’t mind giving them some extra attention and putting a bit of money into efforts to whiten them. I’ve even priced having them professionally whitened at a dentist’s office. I was quoted $600 and up. Yeah….I don’t have $600 lying around, wishing I would just go ahead and spend it, already!
But expensive options aren’t the only effective options. Over the past few weeks I have been using the LED Teeth Whitening System from Smile Brilliant. I can use this kit, which is currently available for only $39.95, in my own home.
Now, I will tell you that when I use this product, it isn’t exactly the most comfortable or attractive 20 minutes of my day. See?
But I keep my mind off the fact that I have a tray and a glowing light in my mouth by doing this in the evening while I’m unwinding and watching a show on Hulu or Netflix.
How it works is really quite simple:
First, you take the gel pen and paint over your teeth.
Next, you insert the protective trays into your mouth.
Finally, you insert the high intensity ultra-blue LED activating light (batteries ARE included with the kit). After 20 minutes of letting the gel and the light do their thing, you are all done!
Are you wondering why I’m sticking an LED light in my mouth? The light speeds up the whitening process, giving me better results faster.
I used this product daily for the first week that I had it, and now I’m just using it one or two times each week. I think that for the price, it works REALLY well! I’ve also been really impressed with the customer service of this company. A few days after my first kit arrived, I noticed that my light kept turning itself off after just a few minutes of use. When I contacted customer service, they stated that they found this problem to exist in about 1 out of every 200 units, and it was their policy to not only replace the light, but to send a entire new complimentary kit when a customer experienced this problem.
Are you noticing that you have yellow teeth? And do you think those gross (in my opinion) whitening strips are the only at-home option? Check out the Smile Brilliant System. It is affordable, effective, and they offer a money back guarantee!
