Always in search of the next BIG THING
on March 16, 2018
I love a bright smile. My teeth are pretty white and to keep them that way I do bi-annual whiting treatments. I had purchased over the counter strip kits, custom whiting trays, blue light systems, water flossers, and over sea whiting agents. All with varying results and effects.
My dentist is amazing and we share tricks a tips for maintenance and dazzling smile. The custom trays and whiting agents were too strong for me, they stripped my enamel, blistered my gums, and could have long term damaging effects. The strip kits were ok but didn’t provide the WOW effect I was looking for. Before my wedding I wanted a drastically whiter smile and considered a professional whitening session with my dentist, she adamantly advised against it as it would be several hundred dollars for no visual results. Again my dentist is amazing, she advised that I get the strips and avoid staining food agents. It worked but I wanted a product to maintain the shine that wasn’t so meticulous.
I was between the turmeric and charcoal. I have a sensitivity to certain products so charcoal was my best option. There are a multitude of products on Amazon and after reading the reviews I decided for my case this was the best option. I did not have cigarette stains, nor extreme yellowing. I just wanted to have a more illumines smile with less hassle than the strips. I followed the instructions and by the third day I noticed a visual shade change. I also have a tooth shade guide and will be charting my results after 14 consecutive days of use.
The product is very messy so I tend to concentrate on the frontier smile perimeter. With the sequence of steps my mouth feels invigorated, it has a fresh from the dentist feel. I have been using the products as recommended for 9 continuous days, I’ve not experienced any gum irritation or tooth sensitivity. Yesterday, I went back to my dentist for a cleaning, and my dentist commented on the smoothness of my enamel and my great job with maintenance. I told her about the new product mid-way through my cleaning, and she noted the color difference on my front smile perimeter.
In the future for a more even look I will focus on the interior front teeth, but the product worked and the dentist noticed. The checkup this time was slightly different, I didn’t have that same just from the dentist clean feel when I left. It just felt like my new normal brushing regiment.
My dentist joked that this could put her out of business. While it doesn’t replace your regular dental visit it will replace the cosmetic whitening practices. My dentist shared that her other patients were using other charcoal brands. This 3 piece system works for me!
Oh and before I left my dentist got the link so she’ll be testing it out soon.
My recommendations, have a foaming cleanser and glass cleaner nearby after brushing to mitigate staining your sink, and glass. Avoid red wines, coffee, teas and other staining agents.
