“You’re never fully dressed without a smile”
They say smiling is the universal language and I completely agree! It’s such an easy thing to share with the world and has the power to make everything better. That’s why I love to smile, and I try my best to keep my teeth in great shape.
I’m not a coffee drinker but I’ll indulge in the occasional glass of red wine to keep my heart healthy ya know. Ha! I completed my Invisalign treatment at the beginning of the year, and I developed a bad habit of drinking wine with my trays on. I know, I know, shame. Well, just as I was researching teeth whitening options to help with the mild yellowing, this collaboration came my way! Right on time since I had just tried whitening strips and they were a messy disaster.
I had never heard of Smile Brilliant before they reached out, but since it was so timely, I decided to try it out. Today I’m excited to share my Smile Brilliant teeth whitening experience with you. I’ve also partnered with them to bring you a fabulous GIVEAWAY so keep reading!
First, my favorite things about the Smile Brilliant Whitening System
- You get to make your own impressions which means the trays are custom made for YOU
- The trays are ohhhh sooo soft (yes that soft), and hug your teeth so nicely. Extremely comfortable! This was one of the things I was initially worried about
- They include extremely detailed instructions that are a breeze to follow
Now let’s talk about how it works
First, you make your impressions
Your package includes 3 tubes each of catalyst and base pastes that you mix to form a blue paste. You only need two but they provide an extra one in case you mess up on the first try, or drop the paste like I did :). You create the paste using the instructions provided, and then ship it off in the included pre-paid envelope. Once the lab receives your impressions, they make your trays and ship them back at no extra cost to you! I think it took about 1 week for my custom-fitted trays to arrive.
Then, you whiten
Once your trays arrive, you’re ready to begin whitening. Again the instructions are super detailed and straightforward. Give your teeth a quick brush with just water, squeeze about 1/3 of the whitening gel into the trays and plop em on. After about 45 mins to 3 hours, you take them out. I started with 45 mins for the first couple sessions, and then went up to 2 hours.
Next you apply the desensitizing gel for about 30 mins and you’re done! I did mine at night a few hours before bed and that worked well for me. It also deterred me from my bad habit of midnight snacking in bed, so win win! Hey, I never said I was perfect.
My final thoughts
Overall, I would recommend Smile Brilliant. I love that you can get results similar to what you would at a dentist’s, but for a fraction of the price and in the convenience of your own home. I didn’t get celebrity white results lol but it gave my smile an added brightness. You can also see that it got rid of most of the yellowing in my back teeth.
My only con is that I did have some gum sensitivity during my sessions, but their desensitizing gel helped with that! I also found that applying a thin layer of coconut oil on my gums before whitening made a huge difference with the sensitivity. If you’re thinking about whitening your teeth at home, you should give them a try.
