I think we can all agree, confidence comes from within... but a bright smile helps ;)
Over the years, I've revealed a few quirks here on the site, that's why when Smile Brilliant told me about their new cariPro Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush, I openly shared my obsession for oral hygiene. While I'm sure many of you dread the dentist's office, I actually get excited– the look of a bright smile and the feel of a smooth set of pearly whites is my bliss. Maybe it's the OCD, but it's right up there with freshly washed sheets & long hot showers– complete zen & a definite boost in confidence.
Full disclosure, I'm a Sonicare girl, I've been using Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes for years and currently own the Diamondclean Smart in Black. Over the years I've had a couple of their brushes break down or require replacement, but by then there's usually a new & improved model I've already been eyeing. All that to say, I've been a happy repeat customer for a long time, and was open about this when Smile Brilliant reached out.
That being said, Smile Brilliant's new cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush presents some unique features that peaked my interest. For example...
5 automated brush modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive)
30 day battery life (on full charge) – amazing for travel!
Wireless charging dock - again, great for travel!
Waterproof design safe for shower or bath.
Full 2year warranty (Sonicare only offers limited warranty)
Best price on the market
Keep in mind that while the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush just launched this summer, Smile Brilliant has been in the industry for years! In fact, they're best known for their professional grade at home teeth whitening system, so you can be confident they know how to bring out your brightest smile! With this in mind, the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush was designed to...
remove 7x more plaque than a manual toothbrush
improve gum health in as little as 2 weeks.
remove more surface stains from everyday food and drink, giving you a noticeably brighter smile in as little as 1 week.
I've been using an ultrasonic toothbrush for as long as I can remember, however, while doing some research for this project, I was surprised to learn how many of you have never tried an electric toothbrush at all. Keep in mind, ultrasonic and electric toothbrushes are technically different. You can likely find an electric toothbrush at your local Target for under $15, whereas a good ultrasonic brush will be closer to $200/$300. Your $15 electric toothbrush will move the bristles in a circular motions to clean, which in theory sounds great, but ultrasonic technology is far more advanced using high speed vibration to breakdown plaque in a more efficient and gentle manner. The cariPRO works at 40,000 vibrations per minute.
I could go on about further reasons why this brush is worth trying, but here's the deal: be it the CariPro or another, everyone should invest in an ultrasonic toothbrush to guarantee the best at home oral hygiene. I'm the perfect example of someone who cares deeply and still needs that extra assist – in my obsession with getting the best clean, I've been known to brush too hard & have been warned of receding gums. In my case, the sensitive feature of the cariPRO is both gentle and powerful, offering a deep clean within safe boundaries. Whether you don't brush well enough or, as in my case brush too aggressively, consider an electric brush your guide to staying on the straight and narrow.
As for the cariPRO in comparison to other brands on the market, well, it's all that it claims to be and no gimmicks: quality engineering, high performance, and by far the best bang for your buck. That last part is key though... remember when I said most ultrasonic brushes ring in at $200-$300? Well, in an effort to make the best oral care accessible to all, Smile Brilliant bypasses the middle man with direct to home product, bringing this bad boy down to a mere $129 (including 4 replacement heads)– that's about half the price of it's competitors. Think Warby Parker business model.
Ready for the best part? This is one you're going to want to share with family & friends... I'm beyond excited to announce Glitterary readers get a major discount– Smile Brilliant has agreed to 40% off with code GLITTERARY40! Literally no reason not to make the switch to ultrasonic!
