Brand Next Door: Smile Brilliant
You may have seen on my Instagram stories that I got a new electronic toothbrush from Smile Brilliant a few weeks ago. I’ve been using a regular one for several years and often think I can do better, but I really can’t stand the noise electric toothbrushes make or how aggressive they feel on my teeth. My grandfather (Papa) is a periodontist and I actually wanted to be a dentist myself years ago, so you can probably imagine how much I think about not using the best equipment to keep my teeth looking right. But plunging back in felt like one more expensive toothbrush I was going to quickly abandon.
And then Smile Brilliant came knocking. I’ve chatted with them before about their teeth whitener, but I’m always pregnant or breastfeeding when they want me to try it. The research on teeth whitener bugging the babe isn’t conclusive, so I try to play it safe there, but when they mentioned a toothbrush, it felt like the stars were aligning.
I also recently learned how important it is to take great care of your oral health while pregnant. I knew that gums are more likely to bleed when you’re knocked up, but I didn’t know there was SUCH an emphasis on making sure you’re keeping up with everything teeth.
So, I’ve been using my new brush twice a day for over a week and have played with all five modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive). Clean is my favorite, and I appreciate both the tongue scrubber and buzz to change mouth quadrants more than I thought I would. My teeth and mouth feel SO clean—I can’t see myself going back to anything else.
AND, if you’re ready to take the plunge into cleaner, whiter teeth, take 20% off cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrushes at Smile Brilliant with my code: thebrandnextdoor20. You get a second brush head with your order, so you’ll be good for at least six months.
