When I was 5, just after Momma had triumphed over cancer, Papa set up a series of Glamor photos as a Mother's Day gift. I recall all the months she had been undergoing chemotherapy that she'd refused to leave the house without a handkerchief or scarf around her head. Even in the 90's people were cruel and unkind, they'd stare wherever we went, and simply going out for dinner could feel quite uncomfortable for all of us. At the same time, Momma had always refused to don a wig; it was not her fashion to deny who she was or what made her so. And, that was how I learned the lesson that true beauty can shine through in any way we choose.
After Momma's Glamor shoot I recall spreading the sample prints out on the carpet floor. Still a bit unsure of herself, hardly any hair on her head and lacking the stunning golden locks Papa had fallen for- I sensed my mother was uneasy. To me, every single shot was breath-taking, but, in particular, I was drawn to Momma's mouth. There was something captivating about the way her hesitant lips parted to crack a smile. And the way they were painted, bright red and glossy, especially made her teeth pop- She had one of the most perfect smiles I had ever seen, and I was determined, someday, I would too.
teeth whitening system you will be sent everything you need to get custom fitted whitening molds, including your sensitivity and whitening applicators (starting with 3 treatments.) The process of molding one's teeth is much like an experience at the dentist (as I did when I had my night guard made,) and requires the simple mixing of two compounds by hand. Once the molding putty is mixed you will press it into the provided mold trays and press the trays firmly into your palette, or lower teeth. After just a few minutes you may remove the molds, let them sit for 30 more minutes, then seal them in the postage paid envelope and drop them in a local mailbox.
SmileBrilliant! molds are received, and when the completed trays are sent out. The process took less than a week from initial kit receipt to trays in hand, for me. As soon as you have your custom trays you are ready to begin whitening! The company has included optional sensitivity gel to apply prior to your whitening application, should you have cracked or compromised dentin or sensitivity. The 'numbing' process is not invasive and works the same way the whitening process will, through mess free application with your custom fitted trays. The trays are a pliable poly material that is lightweight, but fragile to grinding or tears (so be mindful when wearing them.) Because of this they are also quite comfortable and undetectable, so you can go about your whitening while folding laundry, making lunch, or Google chatting.
