If you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may find it hard to find a whitening system that doesn't irritate. I am one of those people with super-sensitive teeth, and because of that I have avoided most teeth whitening kits. I've tried a few here and there over the past few years, but only found one that didn't cause any sensitivity in my teeth or gums. Many kits or systems I tried I could use once (often leaving the gel or strips on for only half the suggested time), but if I tried a second application, couldn't stand the sensitivity it caused. A couple years ago I tried a unique home-whitening system from a company called Smile Brilliant, and to date it is the only system that really does whiten my teeth, but doesn't cause any sensitivity!
Smile Brilliant is a home whitening system that allows you to actually get a custom-fitted tray designed specifically for your teeth. The kit comes with desensitizing gel and whitening gel, and this combination is perfect for people like me! Simply use the desensitizing gel in your trays for 10-15 minutes, and this prevents and alleviates any sensitivity. I only need to use it once a day during my whitening process, but you can actually use it more frequently if needed. For example, you could use it both before and after whitening, or even a couple different times throughout the day. I haven't found this necessary however; just the one use a day does the trick for me.
This is by far the best home teeth whitening system I have found for people with sensitive teeth. You can also find out more information about what causes sensitive teeth. I highly recommend it for anyone who's had a bad experience with home whitening, or is nervous about trying it out. You will love the results, and love the fact that your teeth and gums don't feel any pain or sensitivity! Smile Brilliant is also running a giveaway, so be sure to enter for a chance to win
