CariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

In my opinion the easiest “beauty hack” is to invest in your smile. Eyelash extensions cost a fortune, dermatology procedures to brighten your skin involve lasers, and no matter where you fall on the spectrum of for or against Botox, it doesn’t last forever. However, our smiles are eternal! They are unique to each of us and when cared for, provide a lifetime of displaying our best emotion- happiness.

You can imagine my surprise when I was informed at a recent routine dental cleaning, that my bottom gums had receded too far. In fact, I was at risk of gum disease and other factors if not addressed. Naturally, I FREAKED OUT. My healthy smile is so important to me. So, we won’t even get into how I was never made aware of this diagnosis until that moment. But there it was, plain as day, when I pulled my bottom lip down… the bottom gums covering my front-four teeth, was essentially gone. After a second opinion and tons of research (apparently this is fairly common if you have braces while you’re young as they bring your teeth forward, stretching that already thin layer of gum tissue), the consensus was this: I brush my teeth too hard. Or as Mack questioned upon me telling him the news, “you literally brushed your gums away?” Apparently, yes.

Fast forward to today, I received a gum graft procedure that fixed my bottom gum recession, and I am very thankful. Since this was somewhat self-induced by my poor habit of hard-brushing, I knew I had to make a change. I’ve never used a professional-grade electric toothbrush before. Mostly because they’re expensive but also because I just like to use a traditional toothbrush. But with my “new” gums, I want to care for them properly. First step, upgrade my toothbrush.

As you all know, I use Smile Brilliant teeth whitening. When I saw the CariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush– I know I had to try it. The price point is ideal and the brush promises to be comparable to leading industry electric toothbrushes. I had nothing to lose!

I’ve been using this the CariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush for several weeks now and I am obsessed! Also, let me just note that Mack took it upon himself to deem the extra toothbrush head, his. He even ditched the electric toothbrush he’d been using after I made him try mine. With super-soft bristles, multiple settings and an overall gentle vibration, my teeth feel better than they ever have. I am very careful around my gum-area but the bristles gently massage them in a non-abrasive way that maintains their cleanliness. Finally, I don’t “push” on my teeth like I always did with a traditional toothbrush. Instead, I trust that the electric toothbrush is cleaning my teeth better than I ever could!

I am confident that my smile will remain bright and most importantly, healthy, as I’ve made the switch to the CariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush. If you’re intrigued by the toothbrush, have questions about my gum procedure or simply want know more, email me at If you’ve been on the hunt for a new (& better) toothbrush, use code LMRSP40 to receive 40% off the CariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush. I am about to add one to my cart for Mack so we can stop switching out our toothbrush heads!

Thank you so much for reading today! I hope you all have a great week!
