Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home

Anyone else drink an exorbitant amount of tea and coffee?! Well, I’m a Mom so yeah I sure do. As much as I absolutely love it, it has caused my teeth to lose it’s pearly luster which has definitely hit my self-esteem a little.

So after using the same whitening toothpaste for the past 2 years with minimal results I decided I needed to look elsewhere for a solution! I’m sure you’ve seen all of the celebrities on Instagram with their whitening LED posts – They look promising but the at-home light is not the same frequency as the dentists’ so it definitely doesn’t whiten nearly as effectively so decided that was out of the question.

Same research, the strips seemed great but they create issues with not staying put long enough to have lasting effects as well as causing extreme sensitivity in some cases. (Which all whitening products do because of the gel but it sure wouldn’t be enjoyable for with those with super sensitive teeth like myself!) And the widely popular charcoal is just too abrasive for teeth – It can erode enamel regardless of how fine it is.

With all of these options I decided there was only one I really wanted to give a shot – Whitening Tray Kits. They are custom fitted to your teeth for a complete whitening coverage, are safe for gums and enamel and are the same methods dentists use. But there are companies out there that use the same dentist methods without the huge bill!

That’s how I found Smile Brilliant – It’s been a complete game changer!! I bought their T6 Sensitive System for average stains for only $175. It comes with one custom set of custom trays, 18 whitening applications and 18 desensitizing applications..

Screenshot_20180510-213156

You begin with creating your custom trays with the paste they provide and it only takes 15 minutes! You then send in your molds and they create a perfect fitting tray and you can begin your whitening journey!

My teeth were sensitive the first few days but the desensitizing gel nipped that in the bud real quick! And my gums never felt sensitive! I am so happy I decided to go with Smile Brilliant the first time instead of trying other methods I was already second guessing..

My confidence is back and my Husband has told me constantly how white and beautiful my teeth look! A HUGE self-esteem boost! Now I drink my tea/coffee through a straw and I don’t care how silly I look – I’ve got to keep these pearlies white

Another random perk of this system is now that I’ve got these custom trays I use them at night for my constant nighttime teeth grinding and don’t have to spend the extra money on another set of trays!

Lucky for y’all, I am collaborating with Smile Brilliant to give one lucky reader of mine a $149 Smile Brilliant Credit towards which ever Whitening System they choose so they too can experience the joy that comes from being able to #SmileFearlessly ! Giveaway ends May 19th – So get those entries in and be sure to enter your email address! Enter HERE!

Open to USA, UK, Australia and Canadian Residents.

Their kits range from $139 to $189 depending on the type of system you’ll require and with my code: SIMPLYKARALIZ20 you can take off an additional 20% ! This is an amazing value when considering the price you’d be charged at a dental office!

Again, I am SO happy I chose Smile Brilliant as it’s completely changed my dental habits and my confidence – Try it for yourself, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

JORD Wood Watches

Giveaway!! At the end of this post! $100 Store Credit! && A 25% coupon code!

Yes, y’all I know – I’m currently obsessed with Christmas. So much so I’m pretty much completely done with Christmas shopping because I’ve been going on shopping sprees like a crazy person hahaha..

One gift I am SUPER stoked about is the JORD Wood Watch I’m getting my Husband!! He’s never found a watch he likes but has the sexy hairy man arms to rock them SO I got him a GORGEOUS JORD Dark Sandalwood watch – It’s the perfect gift for the loved ones in your life as they’re professional yet stylish and you can engrave them with sweet words of love and appreciation ❥Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 9.05.49 AM.pngJORD Watches create hand-crafted wood timepieces with raw material and refined designs – JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. They spend their days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing 😉 Then they’ll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. They have fun which is their journey. They are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle.

We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 9.06.41 AM.pngThese high quality watches can be your perfect gift to your loved ones (or yourself 😉 ) at a great price with 25% off for my readers with the code simplykaraliz
