Having clean and white teeth is such an important part of feeling comfortable in my own skin. Sometimes I look in the mirror and become extremely self-conscious when I see the coffee stains. This is when I know it’s time to whiten.
Earlier this year I tested out Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening system and had some amazing results, so when they reached out to me to try the new CariPRO Ultrasonic Toothbrush, I jumped at the opportunity. I have never used an electric toothbrush for a substantial period of time, so I was excited to see how it would affect my oral health.
Unboxing the Toothbrush
I received the CariPRO individual package, which includes the toothbrush itself, a wireless charging dock, and 2 replacement heads. Right off the bat, I was happy to see such a sleek design as well as a simple-to-use recharging station.
While reading the manual, I learned that Smile Brilliant offers a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty on the product (this is a huge deal to me). I was also surprised to learn that the handle is completely waterproof, so you can even bring it in the shower if that’s your thing. Smile Brilliant FAQ’s can be found here.
The CariPRO is designed with 5 modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, and sensitive) that operate for two minutes, with brief pauses between each 30 second burst. Basically, it operates for the exact time you should be brushing and also reminds you when to switch quadrants in your mouth. This thing operates at 40,000 vibrations per minute. How cool is that?
To switch modes, you simply click the arrow button. Over the last few weeks, I’ve tried each mode and I must say that there is a distinct difference between them all. I have strongly favoured the “sensitive” setting as some of the others are much too strong for me. This could change over time, but for now I’m working my way up to the other settings.
My favourite part of this toothbrush is easily the head itself. The DuPont bristles are fairly stiff at first, but after a while they felt perfect for me. The “W” shape really seems to get the job done and the tongue scraper on the back side is an amazing addition.
I’m hoping that in the future Smile Brilliant decides to offer different types of heads. This one works great for me, but I can see how it could be a little too stiff for some people. With that being said, it is comforting to know that the rubberized heads are made to protect enamel.
One of the coolest features of the CariPRO is the charging dock. After you finish brushing, you simply place the toothbrush back on the dock. When it finishes charging, the red light turns to green. No batteries, no ugly cords, just a sleek little stand that doubles as the perfect place to store your toothbrush.
In the end, the entire Smile Brilliant system has greatly increased my love for my teeth. Being a coffee drinker, I notice a change immediately after I whiten, and this toothbrush gives me another quick way to ensure my teeth stay white.
If you’re interested in trying the CariPRO yourself, I have awesome news for you!
