Finding Time For Self Care with Smile Brilliant

As a new mom I really struggled with finding time for me. I had extreme "mom guilt" and anxiety if it meant leaving Grace to have some time to myself, so much so that I wasn't even showering and some days I couldn't even remember if I had brushed my teeth! I wasn't making myself a priority and something needed to change.

When SMILE BRILLIANT reached out to see if I would be interested in trying their new electric toothbrush I really had an "aha" moment. Self Care doesn't necessarily mean going to the spa or working out everyday, it just meant doing something good for yourself. Whether that be blasting your favorite song in the car or allowing yourself to have a great toothbrush.

Fun Fact about me, I love the dentist (I know weird) I never had a cavity until I got pregnant. This past April I had to have four cavities filled because I was so sick during my entire pregnancy. This was the wake up call that I needed to start taking better care of myself. After researching their products and reading the FAQ I decided to take the plunge and I am so happy I did!

I started using the electric toothbrush a little over three weeks ago and my teeth have never felt so clean. My favorite part about the product is it makes your life easier and this busy mom is all about that! 

How It Works

The cariPRO Ultrosonic Toothbrush removes 7x more plaque than a manual toothbrush and improves gum health in less than 2 weeks. SMILE BRILLIANT also states your smile will be 2x whiter in 1 single week, which I did notice!

I have never used an electric toothbrush before, but what's awesome about the cariPRO is it's ultrasonic, meaning it uses high frequency vibrations that break down plaque so it's more effective. I have recently been to the dentist for my 6 month cleaning and the hygienist said my gums are much less sensitive when she was flossing them!

There are 5 different setting on the brush: Clean, Whiten, Massage, Gum Care, and Sensitive. My favorite settings have been Gum Care and Clean. After using the Clean setting my teeth have never felt so smooth, the Whitening setting is a stronger vibration and the Sensitive setting is gentler.

A Tip For An Electric Toothbrush Newbie

After you wet your tooth brush and apply your toothpaste of choice DO NOT turn on your brush until it is in your mouth. I made this mistake and toothpaste went flying all over the counter, mirror, and my clean shirt hahaha. I ended up having to change my entire outfit, but my teeth were super clean!

If you're in the market I highly recommend this toothbrush. It may seem silly, but it really started me on the track to find more time for myself, which at the end of the day helps me be a better mom to Grace.
