Like I’ve mentioned in a previous post, my smile is very important to me and I always try to take care of it so it stays perfect. I think that probably explains why I have 600 laughing pictures on my Instagram 😂(I’m totally exaggerating, it’s more like 200 jk). So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to collab again, it was a no-brainer :). Let me tell you a little back story. Even though my smile is super important to me, I HATE the dentist. I know what you’re thinking, “Makeda, hate is a pretty strong word.” But no, I need you to understand the severity of the situation lol (I’m super dramatic). Even though I hate the dentist, I LOVE getting my teeth cleaned and the feeling after. I’ve always wondered if switching to an electric toothbrush would give me a similar feeling.
Now I’ve used an electric toothbrushes in the past, but nothing like this particular brush. It was more of the $10-$15 ones that I would see in the store when I was a kid. To be honest, I don’t even know if they make electric toothbrushes for that price anymore. Regardless, I knew I needed something substantial if I was going to make the change. At the beginning of this year, I started researching electric toothbrushes but I couldn’t decide on one. I was like hmmmmm, I could buy a pack of four toothbrushes at the dollar store or buy a toothbrush that’s going to be like $70+ for a good one. And while a pack of four toothbrushes for $1 is very cost efficient lol it wasn’t doing a very good job of giving me that deep clean I really needed. And I’m not going to lie, it’s an investment, but if there’s one thing that I know, it’s that the dentist is expensive and the more things you can do at home to prevent further complications the better!
There are a lot of great features that come with the cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush. My favorites are the five settings you can choose from: clean, white, massage, gum care and sensitive. While I’ve tried out all of them, the ones I love the most are the clean, white and gum care settings. The first time I used the toothbrush, it was such an experience that I was like, “I guess I’ve been brushing my teeth the wrong way for the last 20+ years lol.” I couldn’t believe how clean my teeth felt. Some other things I liked about this brush are:
- It alerts you (vibrates) when you should move to another quadrant of your mouth (30 seconds for each)
- It’s on a timer that turns off when you should be finished brushing your teeth (2 minutes total)
- You’re left with the, “I just went to the dentist” clean feeling
I promise you guys that after using this toothbrush, I don’t think I can go back to my four pack of toothbrushes lol. It is soooo worth it. It’s something that you have to use everyday but can make such a big difference. I feel like I’m actually getting all of the plaque and taking care of my gums the right way instead of just winging it. After the first day of using it, I went into work the next morning and completely raved about it! Because I love it so much, I’ve teamed up with Smile Brilliant to host another giveaway! One of my lucky followers will have their very own cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush system ($119 in value). The system comes with two brush heads, the toothbrush and a charging dock.
