This year has been one of the most trying years we have faced as a family. But one thing I was told and continue to tell myself is, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” So I keep pushing forward, trying to find the silver lining in the rainy days and continuing to smile knowing right now that’s all we can do.
I was so incredibly excited to partner with Smile Brilliant this year. It was more than just whitening my teeth. It was a fresh jump start to change for a positive reason. With everything that went on, what with moving, losing a job, going back to school, and working to keep up, it was hard to put on a fake smile even for the kids. As I continued to use Smile brilliant each day I noticed myself smiling a lot more and noticed even the change in my attitude because I felt so incredibly motivated to do more and get out of the slump I had put myself in.
I honestly had tried whitening my teeth prior to working with Smile Brilliant but had such bad luck, I stopped. I never thought I had yellow teeth or felt I needed to use something until I saw the difference just a week had made using this product. It is silly to write a post about whitening your teeth and say, “I became a whole new person after that week!” I am constantly in peoples’ faces for my job as a hair dresser. Now doing hair & makeup, I am in their faces even more so. I am going to be quite honest with you ladies, I could smile all day long and be right in their faces as opposed to before. HA!

I know, I know, it’s an at-home teeth whitening post. But you have to try it to know! With how this year has gone, this one simple thing I did for myself each day has kept me smiling even when there was nothing to smile about except the fact that I feel 100 times more amazing because I was doing something specifically FOR ME!
So how does this thing work?
First off, it is affordable and you can whiten your teeth from your home. If you are worried about whether you have sensitive teeth, Don’t be! I have the most sensitive teeth there are and was really worried it would hurt after each process. The company sends out a custom-fitted tray to use and you apply the teeth whitening gel using those trays.
After applying the whitener to your trays, insert the trays in your mouth and wait between 15 and 45 minutes. At first, I could only handle 15-20 minutes and then had to use the desensitizing gels they provide. But after getting more brave, I could leave the trays on for longer periods of time. After each use, I was able to see a difference in the shade of my teeth.

Finally, you remove the tray, rinse and apply the sensitive gel (if needed) which will help your teeth the more you use teeth whitening gel. After letting that sit, rinse again, and you are good to go! The hardest part for me at first was sitting there with trays in my mouth waiting to take them out. As I used them more, I would forget they were in and go about the things I was doing until the timer went off.
When I began writing this teeth whiting review of my experience, I honestly thought it was going to just be about “how to whiten your teeth from home”. But read so many testimonials on teeth whitening from Smile Bright that had me agreeing this was not only about brighter smiles but bringing out a new side of myself as well. I felt more confident not only in my job but in myself. It was the littlest nudge I needed to continue seeing a positive side to things and looking for that silver lining in my life each day.
After one application
It’s okay to want things that are silly. It’s okay to want a brighter smile to help boost your confidence in yourself, even just a little. It’s perfectly fine to smile, knowing you feel great and want to show it. Smiling is contagious and should be shared! So if you have been looking for something to do for yourself this mothers day or just do in order to make you feel 100% on your game at work or home, try using professional teeth whitening at home and see how much it can help you smile more!
I know for our little family we are taking one day at a time and making sure to remember that even the bad days come and go. I try each day to let the kids know how great life is even if it is hard at times. I have definitely noticed a difference in the way my kiddos act if I start the day happy and energized, ready to take on what comes our way because we can do so many things in life and are so incredibly capable of achieving so much. The first step is believing in yourself and moving forward, to become the positive change in the world that you want to see. I see a more positive wife, mom and woman when I look in the mirror and know good things are coming our way as we keep thinking positively and pushing past our fears to get where we want on the other side. Keep on smiling even when you don’t feel like it because that is the first step to seeing the joy on the other side of doubt.
