Smile Brilliant's cariPRO Electric Toothbrush Review (gifted)
Today I want to discuss with you my oral hygiene experience with my new cariPRO electric toothbrush from Smile Brilliant. In the UK, I get a lot of compliments on my “American teeth.” However, I did not always have good teeth—in fact, I used to have large gaps in between all of them requiring five years of braces, and I’ve had quite a few cavities as a child. I even had a silver tooth, though luckily it was just a baby tooth that fell out. Because I don’t want to take my now-nice teeth for granted, I want to make sure I’m taking proper care of them. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me on testing out their new cariPRO electric toothbrush and share my experience with you, I readily agreed. There’s a special surprise for you at the end, so keep on reading!
Features of the cariPRO Electric Toothbrush
First, let’s talk about the basic features of this toothbrush. Smile Brilliant’s cariPRO comes with a two-year warranty and a 60-day trial period—so if you aren’t satisfied with your experience, they will take it back. This is important to me because when a company does this it shows me that they are proud of their product and confident that it will stand the test of time. Along with my cariPRO, I received a spare electric toothbrush head. This is great to replace a worn out brush but also useful to share with your partner. However, if you want to each have your own separate base, Smile Brilliant offers packages for couples too.
• 40k vibrations/minute. Try mimicking that power with your manual toothbrush!
• 5 different brush modes: Clean, White, Massage, Gum Care, and Sensitive. My old electric toothbrush only had an ‘on’ or ‘off’ mode so it’s nice to be able to have options.
• 30-day battery life from full charge. When I lived in America, I found it so frustrating with my old electric toothbrush when I’d go to brush my teeth and it was dead. The battery life was substantially shorter.
• 30-second smart timer. Now you never have to look at your watch to know your two minutes is up. For me, I tend to brush longer than two minutes because I over brush one side of my mouth and then in order have to brush my teeth equally I’d brush closer to four minutes. With the smart timer on my cariPRO, I know how long to brush each side of my mouth evenly.
• Wireless charging dock. I go back and forth between the UK and America to visit my family and it’s so nice to have a charging dock that I won’t need an international converter for.
The design of this electric toothbrush is something that stood out to me from the start. Perhaps I’m biased because my favorite colors are grey and blue, but I think the color palette gives this toothbrush a sleek and modern feel. My past electric toothbrush was bulky and just plain white. In contrast, the cariPRO is a lot slimmer so it fits better into my hand, feels a lot lighter so my arm doesn’t get tired, and just looks so much more elegant. Plus the silver borderlines around the buttons and control panel give it a really sophisticated edge. I find that I am more motivated to brush the proper amount of time when my toothbrush looks nice because it just makes the experience more pleasant overall.
My Oral Hygiene Journey
Now that I’ve started using Smile Brilliant’s cariPRO electric toothbrush, my mouth feels fresher. I used my old bulky electric toothbrush back when I lived in Seattle; however, I switched to a manual toothbrush when I moved to Poland for my study abroad. I couldn’t take it with me because it only worked with American plugs and because I shared the base with my sister. Instead, I found a manual toothbrush convenient for my time abroad. However when I finished my studies and moved to the UK, I never switched back to an electric toothbrush. I neglected to switch back mainly because electric toothbrushes tend to be pricey. However, since I’ve been using my cariPRO, I’ve realized that if my parents invested lots of money towards my smile, the least I could do is show my appreciation by maintaining their investment with a much smaller one of my own—an electric toothbrush. While I didn’t get any cavities while using a manual brush, I did feel like I have to brush my teeth twice in the mornings to feel fresh. Since switching back to an electric toothbrush, I haven’t felt the need as much. While using a manual brush I was also even more scared to go to the dentist than usual. Now, I am also a lot less nervous for my next dentist appointment because I know I’m taking care of my teeth properly. This is perfect for me because I have both dentophobia and a sweet tooth! I use my cariPRO with whitening toothpaste and then floss my teeth once a day for best results. While brushing, I use the clean mode most often. However, because I have had issues with my gums in the past and have had gum surgery, I use the massage or gum care settings a few times a week to make sure they are happier! This means less bleeding when I floss. For the final touch to make my smile look brilliant, I wear a rosy or red shade of lipstick to draw attention to my teeth.
*Please note, while Smile Brilliant gifted me with the cariPRO electric toothbrush, thoughts are all my own. I haven’t had any problems with my toothbrush thus far after using it for a couple of weeks, and I’m not worried about it breaking because of the two-year guarantee.
