At-Home Teeth Whitening: Getting my Teeth White with Style
September 22, 2018
My smile is one of the things I've never really been super self-conscious about — thanks to my mom and dad paying for braces when I was a little girl, I'm actually pretty keen on my teeth. (Hilariously, my daughter Honour Smile has a tooth gap and I think it's the cutest thing in the world and kind of miss mine.)
Even though I love my smile, I'm always sipping drinks that have the potential to darken my teeth. I can't ever give up Diet Coke or coffee, and I'm not mad about it — but because I love my not-so-healthy drinks, I've thought about teeth whitening for a while. I'm so excited to partner with White With Style for today's post! Read on to learn more about my thoughts and to get a discount code for 90% off (yes you heard right 90%!)
When I first heard about at-home whitening, I was curious and a little cautious. I've heard so many horror stories about permanent teeth sensitivity and stains after at-home whitening, and I wondered whether it'd be risky to do it myself. After talking to some of my friends, I decided to give White with Style a go!
I wanted to share the process from start to finish to give y'all a chance to consider using it yourself!
First, you get a package in the mail with a ton of stuff in it. I was overwhelmed when I opened the box, but it's actually straightforward! The first step in the teeth whitening process is to make sure you start with clean and flossed teeth. As with most things you have to have a great foundation!
To get things going, you only need to follow the instructions inside the package! You place the get in your tray and bite down on the tray. I totally messed it up the first time, but I was able to fix it because they send extra. Once you're done with that, you get ready to apply the LED light.
After you place the trays in your mouth with the gel, the LED light activates!— that's basically what happens. It's important to be careful while placing the gel in your mouth because you don't want to get any on your gums. If for some reason you do, there are swabs available and you can clean it right up! It's super easy
It takes some work to get to this point, but once you're here, the fun begins! Wait until nighttime but before you've brushed your teeth and add some whitening gel to the trays. (It's recommended to use just a drop of the provided syringe, but I used a little bit more). Leave it on for a while — White With Style says to do it for about 30 mins. I believe this will give you the most effective results.
When whitening is up, it's time to desensitize! Brush your teeth like you normally would, and rinse out the whitening trays as well. This is such an important step. I never whitened without brushing afterwards, and I experienced no sensitivity as a result! After 15-30 minutes, you can spit out the excess in the sink, but you shouldn't rinse too early allow the gel to work its magic.
My teeth weren't super yellow beforehand, so I wasn't expecting a dramatic change, but I was super impressed at the transformation I saw! My smile is much whiter than it was beforehand. I still have a ways to go and they aren't perfect ( I mean no one is perfect right??) But White With Style gave me a beautiful smile!
