Smile Brilliant Night Guard Review + Giveaway

You might have seen my review of the cariPRO Ultrasonic Toothbrush from Smile Brilliant in the past. I’m still using that same toothbrush today. I do keep a supply of new brush heads on hand. My dentist was impressed with how well it keeps my teeth clean. She actually asked for the name of the toothbrush. But a newer issued came along at one of my dentist appointments a few years ago.

About 2 years ago, while at my dentist appointment, my dentists commented about my gums receding. She says there’s a few reasons it could happen but one reasons is from teeth clenching or grinding my teeth. I had a coworker that had a similar problem. She ended up having to have cadaver gums to fix her receding gum line. The idea of that just doesn’t appeal to me. They did give me some hope that there has been advances with injecting collagen into the gums and seeing results with that treatment. Unfortunately it was just starting on the west coast and hadn’t made it’s way to the east coast yet. It’s obviously something that dentists will need to be trained to do as well.

I started to pay more attention. I noticed I did clench my teeth when working out. I sometimes grind my teeth when I’m bored. It’s possible I clench or grind my teeth at night. I don’t personally know that I do and my husband has never said anything to that effect.

So, what do I do? I ask my dentist. She suggested a night guard. Unfortunately she says it’s not covered by my insurance. They could do a custom one but it would cost around $500 or I could buy a pre-fab one somewhere like Walmart. So I went with that option. The pre-fab one I bought only cost about $20. Unfortunately you get what you pay for. It didn’t fit my mouth right. I had to cut the ends so it fit in my mouth without feeling like it was gagging me. In the end it didn’t work out.

I was starting to seriously consider shelling out the $500 to avoid cadaver gums. But then Smile Brilliant entered my life. It was exactly the solution I needed.

Smile Brilliant offers custom night guards you can get in the convenience of your own home. Smile Brilliant Custom Night Guard costs a fraction of what i would have paid my dentist but still getting the custom fit I need. They send you a kit in the mail to create your own custom dental guard at your convenience. They have an easy to follow step by step guide.

You kit comes with a mold and stuff that reminds me of silly putty that you have to mix together. They give you enough for two tries just in case you mess up on the first one. I’ve used the same method for their teeth whitening trays. I usually get it on the first try but did end up having to use the 2nd set this time. No worries if you still need more, you just have to contact them.

The whole process really only take about 10 min start to finish. The instructions have high resolution, color pics. They are are truly step by step. I personally suggest reading through the entire directions so you can anticipate what you need to do next. It’s not a hard process but you do only have so much time to work with the molding solution before it starts to harden.

Smile Brilliant also provides an envelope, postage paid, to send your impression back for your bite guard to be created.

It took close to three weeks for me to get my bite guard in the mail but when I received it, it was a perfect fit. It’s a nice flexible material. It’s comfortable in my mouth.

When your finished bite guard is sent to you, you also receive a convenient, vented storage container to keep your bite guard in.

Great Tasting Energy Tea from Zest Tea

When you think about tea, what do you think of? Honestly I have so many thoughts. I think of a cold refreshing tea on a hot summer day. I think about a nice warm cup of morning tea to start my day. I think about a beverage that has benefits beyond quenching my thirst pallet.

Zest Tea offers a variety of energy teas to enjoy anytime you need a boost of energy.

This high caffeine tea is delicious, refreshing, and just the kick you need without the crash.

Zest Tea loose leaf tea and tea bags are available in 6 different flavors:

  • blue lady
  • pomegranate mojito
  • earl gray
  • cinnamon apple
  • spicy masala chai
  • superberry samba

The Zest Tea sparkling teas are available in different flavors and varieties

  • Passionfruit Berry (this is the flavor I sampled and LOVE IT!)
  • Sweet Chai Infusion
  • Pomegranate Mint
  • Blackberry Lime Zero Sugar
  • Blood Orange Mango Zero Sugar
  • Cucumber Melon Zero Sugar

So what is in a cup of Zest Tea caffeinated tea?

  • ENERGY: Up to 150mg caffeine = 3x regular tea
  • FOCUS: 40mg L-Theanine = no jitters, no crash
  • HEALTH: Natural, Non-GMO certified ingredients

Honestly, I loved all the teas. The flavors, the quality of the tea, the fragrance, it was definitely high quality.

One thing I really loved though was the Sparkling Teas for the summer. Cold, refreshing, crisp, just what I need on a hot day. I took several cans with me when we went to the beach. Because Zest Tea is the tea with the most caffeine, it’s great for long road trips. The added focus benefit was awesome too.

I’m usually the one driving when we go on roadtrips. My husband actually enjoys the fact that I drive and it benefits me because I get motion sickness as a passenger. I’ve tried a lot of caffeinated drinks during road trips but this was by far the best. I’m gonna have to order more for our next trip. We’re headed to State College in November to see Kane Brown, just me and the hubs.It’s a long awaited overnight getaway for me and the hubs. That hasn’t happened without the kids in a couple years.

With the kids starting back to school I’ll be enjoying my sips of hot Zest Tea on the porch while waiting for the bus to drop them off. That way I’ll be sure to meet them with the same energy they meet me with.

You can check out Zest Tea out here. I haven’t had the opportunity to try the zero sugar but the flavors sound amazing. I’ve been trying to cut sugar out of my beverages because it’s a pretty easy way to start reducing daily sugar intake.

GIVEAWAY

1 US winner will win a 20 ct package of Zest Tea tea bags.
