7 Teeth Whitening Myths Busted with Smile Brilliant
Think you know everything about teeth whitening? Well today I’m busting your teeth whitening myths. We are going over the 7 most common misconceptions people have about teeth whitening at home. Are you ready to see the “white” side of the teeth whitening story? Here’s 7 Teeth Whitening Myths BUSTED with Smile Brilliant.
1. Teeth whiteners make teeth WHITE
Ok, so maybe whoever termed the phrase “teeth whitening” may not have been as specific as possible. The thing is, teeth whiteners like Smile Brilliant work to remove stains so your teeth can get as close to their natural color….which ultimately may not have been white. More than likely your teeth were naturally yellow or grey in color.
2. Teeth whiteners are harmful
Studies done over the past 5 years have shown that lab direct whitening (such as Smile Brilliant) to be safe and effective with minimal side effects. A small percentage may have tooth sensitivity (caused by tooth dehydration, NOT enamel damage) and gum irritation, but this disappears upon discontinuation or lessening the use of the Hi-Intensity Whitening Gel.
3. You should see instant results
Let’s do some math. How many years of stains do you have on your teeth? How many coffees have you drank? How about teething staining foods? Those numbers add up. You may not get instant results with only a handful of treatments, and that’s ok. While some folks see results within 4-7 days, some may need 10-14 days of treatment with Smile Brilliant before seeing results. Remember, everyone’s teeth and stains are unique.
4. Strips work better than trays and gels
Whitening strips actually use a different whitening method than trays and gel. The bleaching method actually strips your teeth of enamel to get the job done, making your teeth pretty painful over time. OUCH! Smile Brilliant on the other hand uses a safer and more realistic stain-removal ONLY method that’s more effective to whiten teeth.
5. The whitening trays are painful to wear
Well I don’t know what trays you are using, but the ones from Smile Brilliant fit me perfectly. No, seriously. I was able to mold, send and get a 100% fitted tray to my teeth. Made of flexible plastic, this tray form fits perfectly to the natural shape of my teeth. I wore the trays for over an hour at a time. No problems. In fact, I was able to work while wearing them. BONUS multi-tasking!
6. Folks with sensitive teeth can’t teeth whiten their teeth
Not true with Smile Brilliant. Since Smile Brilliant is a safe method for whitening teeth without enamel removal, anyone that wants stain-free teeth can use this product. Sensitivity is a possible side effect, where the Desensitizing Gel may help, or decreasing/stopping the treatment.
7. It isn’t as effective as professional whitening
Studies are now showing that lab direct whitening done at home is similar if not more effective than laser whitening at the dentist office. And with laser whitening costing upwards of $500-$1,000, Smile Brilliant is also more cost efficient as well.
So How Does Smile Brilliant Work?
Myths busted, here’s how you can get whiter teeth at home with Smile Brilliant.
1. Make your molds.
This is important, like super important. If you want the 22% carbamide peroxide Hi-Intensity Gel to hug every nook and cranny of your tooth, you’re going to want to make these molds right. Only a few steps of working with some dough (childhood memories!) and a few bite downs. Easy! You’re ready for step 2.
2. Mail them in.
The pre-paid envelope is already included in your package. BAM!
3. Place a small strip of Hi-Intensity Gel in your molds
Trust me, you only need a very thin strip.
4. Wear the molds for 15 minutes – 3 hours per session.
I could comfortably wear up to an hour at a time.
5. Repeat as needed for a whiter smile.
And, that’s all folks. So results time, right? Ok, here’s after 7 days of treatment. I had no idea how yellow my teeth were before I used the product. I had (in my mind) pretty white teeth. So I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting this big of a difference. It’s absolutely noticeable. The sensitivity is true. I would say about 30 minutes-1 hour later I could start to feel the effects of sensitivity. That’s where the Smile Brilliant Desensitivity Gel comes in. Place into your molds and leave in your mouth about 5-15 minutes to restore tooth dehydration, strengthen enamel and reduce sensitivity. And with results like these in as little as 1 week, definitely worth the effort!
