HOME TEETH WHITENING {GIVEAWAY}

HOME TEETH WHITENING {GIVEAWAY}

This is a post I've been meaning to sit down and get out for what feels like forever, and I finally am here doing it. A few months ago, a representative of Smile Brilliant reached out and asked if I wanted to test out their at-home teeth whitening kit. I, of course, said yes because who doesn't want pearly white teeth without paying an arm and a leg? Especially since I drink tea quite a bit and was in desperate need of whitening. 

I was only skeptical about one thing: my bonds. If you are not aware, my four front teeth are bonds and have been that way since I was fifteen years old. Obviously, bonds are not my real teeth, so I was nervous for what would happen to them. What if the whitening damaged my bonds? Would the bonds remain the same color that they are and the rest of my teeth get whiter? Unfortunately, the answer to both of those questions is yes, but that didn't stop me from testing out the product - and I'm so glad that I did. 

So, let's ignore the fact that I have bonds for a bit.

For my teeth, the whitening worked. Smile Brilliant's product is seriously brilliant. This product was gentle on my {real} teeth and it was a time-consuming process. I'm someone who drinks a lot of tea and has a bit of sensitivity in my teeth, but this teeth whitening kit worked its magic without any concerns. 

However, when it came to my bonds, the whitening kit did not help as much. The change to my teeth was subtle, so you couldn't tell at first glance that my teeth were different shades of white. I did have to make a few trips to the dentist to have the bonds redone to match the rest of my newly white teeth. If you are someone with bonds, do consult with a dentist before  whitening your teeth, and if you decide to continue with it, definitely use Smile Brilliant!

And with that said, I'm doing GIVEAWAY! Smile Brilliant and I are giving away one full, at-home teeth whitening kit! Enter the giveaway here and in 2 weeks from today, I will announce the winner at the bottom of this post and on my Instagram story.  {Giveaway only valid in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia}.
