Let’s talk dental care. I know what you’re thinking but hear me out. So if you follow me on instagam then you probably know the story, but for those of you who don’t you’re in for a laugh.
This past November I celebrated my 21st birthday. I had silly fun plans for the entire day: I attended a yoga and wine event with baby goats in the morning with my dear friend - really just the best photo opportunity, a beer festival at Nationals Stadium, and finally a hockey game at Capital one arena. Sounds like a blast right?! It was. Riiighhhtt up until the very end. As we were walking back to the parking garage, I tripped on a curb and was too tipsy to properly catch myself. Like all good drinking stories, I forgot the rest and woke up at home in bed. In the middle of the night I got up to use the bathroom only to discover the immense amount of pain my body was in, I looked in the mirror and found there were scrape marks on my chin and nose, a gouge on my upper lip, and I chipped both. of. my. front. teeth.
The next morning I was going on a trip to New York with my sister and mom. I couldn’t smile the entire trip. 1.) because my teeth looked terrible. and 2.) because I couldn’t stretch my upper lip at all from the gouge. As you can imagine, brushing my teeth was pretty much out of the question considering the amount of pain my face was in. That’s not how I roll though. Thus enters, Smile Brilliant!
Smile Brilliant and I have been long time friends. They helped whiten my teeth when I was modeling and now they’ve gifted me with my very first electric toothbrush. I have always used a manual brush because I never saw the reason for an electric one if a manual is working just fine. BOY was I wrong. Trying to brush my teeth with a manual brush while my entire gums were bruised, jaw was swollen, and those two chipped teeth were raw?? Horrible.
Smile Brilliant has just launched this amazing brush called cariPro. My favorite feature? There’s FIVE different brush settings: clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive. I’m sure you could have guessed my favorite setting was sensitive during this time.
Once I got my teeth fixed however, it’s not like the pain went away - I did some serious damage that night! I had to be careful with my teeth and take note of what hurts and what needs special attention. With five different settings, a timer to move to another location of your mouth while brushing, and an automatic stop feature when 2 minutes is up, Smile Brilliant helped me immensely. I am 100% team electric toothbrush now, and you should be too! For 20% off cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrushes use my code: palmtreesandtaxis20.
