I Wanted Whiter Teeth, Then I Got This Crazy Idea…

Like 150 million of my fellow Americans, I have an unapologetic coffee fix. In fact, I fuel up with Colombian Supremo three times a day. But as much as I love the bold taste and rich flavor of my beloved Cups of Joe, I’ve started to loathe the tooth stains that are a result of drinking them. As I get older, they are becoming more of a challenge to get rid of. And that means I’m smiling less in photos and around people. Lately, I’m afraid to show a single tooth.

Yes, I brush my teeth. Twice, sometimes thrice daily. My teeth are in good shape. Or so my dentist tells me when I see her. But I haven’t been able to get them whiter.

Now, I know exactly what you’re thinking. I hear all your voices–and those of my friends and family–through a bullhorn: “Just buy whitening strips!” Here’s the problem: I have super sensitive teeth and gums. I tried whitening strips once and it was like hell in my mouth for three days. Even worse? I had a cavity at the time.

See, a number of strips contain hydrogen peroxide. The same stuff used to kill mold and clear pond algae. People did use hydrogen peroxide to bleach their teeth–over a 100 years ago! Guess what? It’s still a big no-no for folks who experience sensitivity all over their mouth.

I’ve tried whitening toothpaste. I’ve even kept one major food company in business with all the whitening gum I bought over the years. Bottom line: neither got my pearly whites very pearly. The truth is…they only seem to get yellower.

While I’ve remained wary of tooth whitening gel getting anywhere near my mouth, I recently started scoping out teeth whitening kits. Some contain hydrogen carbonate as the key whitening agent, which is FDA-approved and very safe for people with sensitive teeth and gums. I did my research (read reviews and asked around) and found whitening kits to be a mixed bag: a lot of products, but few offering consistent results. A number of them were very expensive, yet overpromised and under-delivered.

Then about a month ago, one product caught my eye…

While I was on the hunt for an effective tooth whitener, I was also looking to upgrade my e-brush, which was wearing down after just a year.
The product I discovered was the Perfect Smile Whitening Brush. No, it’s not a whitening kit. However, CRI Naturals, the company behind the Whitening Brush also released the high-quality Perfect Smile Whitening Kit earlier this year. It has been clinically tested and dentist approved to get teeth at least 3 shades whiter in only 7days.

And while the idea of buying the Perfect Smile Whitening Kit was very appealing, I was more intrigued by the idea of an effective whitening kit and a powerful e-brush rolled into one device. This way, I didn’t have to go through multiple whitening sessions on top of my daily brushing sessions. (Sometimes, even us writers like to cut corners where and when we can).

Since receiving my Perfect Smile Whitening Brush two weeks ago, I am very pleased to report that my teeth are nearly 4 shades whiter! It’s AMAZING!

At first, I was a bit nervous with the blue LED light glowing in my mouth like a lightsaber, but my fears quickly faded. That’s because I read several studies, including one from the NIH (National Institute of Health) that revealed an LED e-brush actually reduced bleeding and inflamed gums after six weeks of use. In fact, the Whitening Brush is very safe for people who suffer from sensitivity of any kind. I love the ultra-soft DuPont bristles, which are wonderfully soothing and gentle on my teeth and gums.

Right out of the box, the Perfect Smile Whitening Brush was simple to use, in addition to featuring 4 dynamic cleaning features, including one dedicated to whitening. It also features an efficient battery, with up to 2 weeks of juice before it needs a recharge. CRI Naturals stands behind the durability of their product as well with an incredible 10-year warranty. And if, for whatever reason, you have an issue with your Whitening Brush, they offer a 90-day 100% money back guarantee.

So, it should come as no surprise that I highly recommend the Perfect Smile Whitening Brush. It helped me achieve a noticeably whiter and brighter smile safely and effectively in just 7 days. And the best part? I haven’t given up a single cup of Colombian Supremo. What do you have to lose? Pick up the Perfect Smile Whitening Brush from CRI Naturals today!
