Bert Healy from Annie said it best, you're never fully dressed without a smile! And what's better than a regular old smile? A white & glowing smile! So today, I wanted to share something that I get a lot of questions about & that is...HOW I WHITEN MY TEETH! 

If you've been following me on Instagram or reading my blog for awhile now, you know I am an avid coffee drinker. I drink at least one cup of coffee everyday and typically that first cup multiplies to two or three cups throughout the day. Drinking coffee is great, but unfortunately, the sad truth is that coffee stains teeth. In order to combat the coffee stains on my teeth, I recently tried Smile Brilliant. 

I tried out their at home teeth whitening kit & I am blown away by the results. My teeth weren't awfully yellow to begin with, but after using the kit, they are much brighter and have a glow to them now. 

This product is really unique because the kit actually comes with molds so you can create custom-fitted whitening trays. The custom-fit trays are really key to the process because that way, the whitening gel can reach every corner of your teeth. The other unique aspect of Smile Brilliant is their vegan and cruelty-free ingredients which is another reason why I'm a fan. 

After you receive your whitening kit, the first step is to create your custom fit impressions. Once you have taken the impressions, you simply mail them back to the lab in the prepaid envelope and then they will send them back to you in less than a week.

Now that you have your custom trays, it's time to make the magic happen! To begin the whitening process, you simply apply a thin layer of the whitening gel to the top and bottom of your custom trays and then insert them in a forward motion. 

After you have whitened and rinsed out your trays, it's now time to use the desensitizing gel. The purpose of this gel is to replenish any vitamins or minerals that may have been lost during the whitening process. 

After that, you're FINISHED! It's as easy as that! I am so thankful to have an extra bright smile now and am happy to share how I made it happen. You can learn even more about the product on their website. And if you are interested in trying Smile Brilliant as well, I have teamed up with them to provide a coupon code for you!
