Smile Brilliant provided me with free product in order to test out and provide an honest review of their product and services.
You’re never fully dressed without a smile
Growing up with my mom as a dental assistant, I didn’t get to eat cotton candy until I was in 5th grade, was taught to floss and brush after ever meal (with braces too!) But I didn’t start to notice my teeth staining until I was into my college years and after college, when I was drinking coffee, wine and tea all the time. My teeth slowly started to get the “coffee stain” and having a bright white smile for special occasions and photos makes such a big difference! You don’t realize how much of a difference until after you see a photo of yourself and your teeth look so yellow that you’re embarrassed to smile! Also, if you happen to be wearing red lipstick, you absolutely NEED bright white teeth!
What works for teeth whitening
I’ve tried many different whitening strips, whitening mouth washes and even the kind that lights up! I don’t think you will ever get a professional teeth whitening experience unless you truly go with a brand or company that takes a personalized mold of your teeth, and uses the right whitening formula.
I recently was gifted and asked to pull together my honest review and experience of using the Smile Brilliant whitening kit. And, I have to say, I am extremely thrilled with the results! The first part of the process is to take molds with the Smile Brilliant molding trays. I was a little nervous at first, but the instructions they provide were super easy to navigate and there was no gagging involved. Haha
Next, once the molds are dry, you slip them into the self-addressed shipping envelope and send off to their lab, where they make your custom teeth molds for when you do the whitening. The whole process took make 1 week and the team is SUPER helpful if you have any questions!
Whitening My Teeth with Smile Brilliant
Once I got my personalized mold teeth trays, I was ready to try out the actual whitening process! I have to admit, I was a little overwhelmed because there are usually so many “rules” like no eating for 30 minutes after whitening, don’t brush with toothpaste before you whiten, etc. But once I did my first session, I realized it was all in my head and it was actually a super easy system! I tend leave the trays on for the minimum 30 minutes because that’s all the patience I have. I set my timer, read a book or watched TV, or just caught up on Instagram! Best time for me was right before bed, because I was done eating for the day. I did try a mid-day whitening session when I knew I wouldn’t need to eat for 30 minutes after, and that was actually a good time to do it too! The Smile Brilliant teeth whitening kit comes with a de-sensitizing gel that is strongly recommended to apply after the whitening. I know that there is a fear of your teeth being super sensitive after doing a professional teeth whitening, but if you use the de-sensitizing gel, you certainly won’t have this issue. I was free and clear of any sensitivity the next day, and my teeth were noticeably whiter and brighter!
