How Do I Whiten My Teeth?

*This post is brought to you by Lumist. Opinions are my own.

There are so many ways to get your teeth whiter. I have used many brands of whitening strips and have been pleased with the results, but they often left my teeth SO sensitive, that when I went to put the whitening strip on again, I had to pull it off immediately because my teeth hurt SO bad!

How Do I Whiten My Teeth? I was getting results I wanted, but had to end the process of it all because my teeth hurt! Nothing is worse then teeth hurting! I was at a dead end with whitening my teeth, sigh.

So I gave up. I ended the dream of having really nice, pretty white teeth because of the sensitivity issues I had. That sucked!

Then I was introduced to Lumist which is a teeth whitening strip, like I have used before, but yet a bit different. The Lumist strips are a bit thicker and they really stick to your teeth, really well. I mean they will not move around if you talk, drink water, exercise, etc. They stay on really GOOD!! I was happy with that.

However, I was VERY hesitant to try them because I was SO afraid of my teeth hurting! I HATE that feeling it hurts so badly. When I applied a Lumist whitening strip to my top teeth, I pushed it on really good and then bit down so the back part can grab onto the back of my teeth.

You can wear these strips for 1-2 hours (they recommend 2 hours). I wore mine for the full 2 hours the first time and no sensitivity AT ALL. I then pulled them off (they stick!) and then brushed my teeth.

I have to say that these Lumist whitening strips taste good! I have been through a lot of whitening strips and these by far are the best tasting minty taste I have ever tasted! Thought I would mention that because many people gag at whitening strips because they taste awful.  But, not Lumist! So that was nice.

I have since used Lumist about 5 more times and my teeth never once hurt or got sensitive. Not sure why, but these whitening strips are just awesome. No teeth hurting ever. So so so happy!!
