TEETH WHITENING FOR COFFEE STAINS


My Smile has always been my biggest asset, so I have been said, for years. Black Coffee is my lifeline. And the two are known to clash !

Teeth Whitening had been on my mind for quite some time now. When you are an avid coffee drinker, your pearly whites can sometimes take a blow. I need my daily caffeine fix, but I knew a teeth whitening session was imminent. That's where Smile Brilliant stepped in, with a brilliant collaboration idea.

This project has been long in the making, but I did not want to do a half hearted effort in giving teeth whitening a try. Two long trips , from Texas to Iceland, a bad tooth injury, student life and Murphy's Law in general, delayed my honest intentions.

Finally I could give it a try. My heartfelt apologies to the Smile Brilliant team for the delay and thank you for being patient with me.

Smile Brilliant is a Teeth Whitening service which you can easily do at the comforts of your home. No more appointments at your dental hygenist's office. Cue on some Netflix and let the whitening begin.

When you first receive your care package, it comes with three tubs of Catalyst and Base each, two Dental trays, and a few syringes of Teeth Whitening Gels and DeSensitizing Gels .


The First task on hand is to create your Custom Dental Impressions. Brush and floss your teeth. Mix equal portions of the Base and Catlalyst , to create a solid blue putty . Place the putty in the middle of the tray and bite into it, to create your impression. Work on one tray at a time. 




Once the impressions are done, its time to mail them back to Smile Brilliant, so that they can create your custom dental trays. Your care package comes with a pre-paid envelope to take care of the dental trays. 

Once you receive your custom trays back, its time to get Whitening. Brush teeth with water(no tooth paste). Remove the cap of the teeth whitening syringe and apply gel to trays. Insert trays and whiten. Start with a whitening time of 45 minutes and you can gradually increase to 3 hours. 


Brush your teeth with tooth paste after you have finished your whitening session and now its time to use the De- sensitizing Gel for 15 to 20 minutes. It reduces sensitivity and prevents future staining. Make sure your trays are washed and dried in between each of the two sessions. Both sessions need to happen back to back  for effective whitening . 


Time wise you are looking at 45 minutes of Whitening + 15 minutes of De-Sensitizing = 30 minutes of waiting to prevent re-staining. So make sure you plan out your sessions accordingly.

AFTER USING SMILE BRILLIANT TEETH WHITENING 
I did experience some slight sensitivity when I used the teeth whitening gel, but that's normal with any teeth whitening procedure. The sensitivity reduced as I went along the process. I started off with 45 minutes per session and went up to two hours. I whitened my teeth for a week : 7 individual sessions. I made sure that I whitened my teeth before bed, so that the de-sensitizing gel could work on it while I slept. It also gave my teeth a chance to re-hydrate . For me , the biggest challenge was continuing the session back to back. I had started a month or more back, and then I had a minor accident. So I had to give the sessions a break. Then I started the sessions from scratch and did it for a week back to back. 

I am aware that no teeth whitening procedure can work miracles. All whitening products work by removing stains. Each whitening session removes years worth of stains. The idea is to be patient with the procedure. I am very happy with the initial progress and would want to continue it again. If you see my teeth, then the whitening procedure has been able to lift away the yellow stains in general, and give it a whiteness, which I was looking for. I want to repeat the procedure in 6 months. 

What I loved about Smile Brilliant was that how simplified the whole procedure was. I could order the kit online,and everything reached home. There were detailed instructions for every step to be followed, which made it so convenient. The custom trays reached me within a week of mailing them and I was all set to start whitening.
