Instant Smile product review
Hey everyone, I've got a different kind of post to share with you today. And to be honest it's not an easy one to write. I have been given the opportunity to test out a product that really piqued my interest and I was hoping would boost my confidence a bit. But writing this review makes me very vulnerable to my readers. We all try to put our best selves forward on social media. I mean who hasn't seen that meme floating around about "if only your life was as good as it seems on FB" I have to share with you something that makes me extremely self-conscious and that I try to hide from the rest of the world.
The issue that I have is bad teeth and the Instant Smile comfort fit flex has been a temporary fix for that. When the company reached out looking for people to review their product I actually jumped at the chance. I wanted to see what I looked like with nice teeth again. I wanted to know what it felt like to smile a real smile and not worry about what people were thinking. Now, this is not a permanent solution to my problem, but it is a place for me to start.
Time for a little backstory. As many of you don't know I'm a smoker, have been for many years and back in my early 20's, my teeth became very yellow. In an effort to combat that I began brushing my teeth extremely hard with whitening toothpaste. I did not succeed in removing the yellow stains, but what I did do was brush so hard that I damaged and removed some of the enamel. Over time this has lead to my teeth darkening and wearing away at the edges.
It's not a fear of the dentist that has prevented me from getting them fixed or a lack of time since I have summers off from work. They don't bother me physically, I'm not sensitive to hot or cold and they don't hurt. They just look bad and bother me in a physical appearance kind of way. I no longer really smile in pictures because I'm embarrassed.
So what has prevented me from getting them fixed? It's the cost. I'm terrified that I won't be able to afford it even with having insurance. Let me tell you that is an awful feeling and one I hope you never have to experience.
That's where the Instant Smile Comfort Fit Flex comes into my life. It's an affordable, temporary solution to my problem. And has allowed me the opportunity to see just what I look like with a real smile. It has helped me make the decision to get to the dentist and finally do something about my smile, and it has given me a small amount of my confidence back. No, I don't wear them all the time in case you were wondering, but I have worn them on a few occasions and have gotten compliments from my friends.
The Instant Smile Comfort Fit Flex is actually pretty easy to use. All you need to do is place the set of teeth in boiling water for a minute and then mold to your mouth. It might take a few attempts to get it right but the nice thing is they can be molded again and again. My mouth is on the smaller side so for me I had to remove some of the molding form from the back of the teeth to get a proper fit. But once I did that, I was pleased with the results.
I honestly don't think they look too bad. I am able to talk normally with them in and they stay perfectly in place. It did take a bit to get used to having them in my mouth and I'm not able to eat with them in but I can live with that. Especially since for now anyway I've got my smile back.
The Instant Smile Comfort Fit Flex can be purchased online for $21.95 before shipping. They also offer a variety of products to help with things like a missing tooth or holding your dentures in place. Do they offer permanent solutions, no but for me, this was 100% worth it. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Smiling! 😀
