So I have teamed up with an awesome company Smile Brilliant to try out their product and give an honest review on what I think.
So about this company, Smile Brilliant. The product that they offer for teeth whitening is exactly like what you would get at the dentist, but instead you get to do this in the convince of your own home for only a fraction of the cost! I mean what is not to love about that? Don’t want to get ready, drag your self out of the house and possibly wait for hours in a dentist office just to get your teeth whitened? Well you don’t have to with Smile Brilliant. So the cool thing about this company is that they will mail you the whitening kit and the items to make your own custom mold for your whitening tray. You make your mold as per directions they provide and then mail it back and they create your tray. They send you your tray in a super fast timely manner. Having a custom tray is probably my favorite part of this. Having something that fits your teeth perfectly so you know that it gets whitened in all the right places and also makes the process comfortable. Here are more benefits of custom fitted trays.
So why use whitening products? Well me personally I am ALWAYS on the search for anything that can help whiten my teeth. I am a dedicated coffee drinker. Every morning it is at least 2 cups of coffee if not more. Also I do like to have a glass of red wine a couple times a week. So those 2 main things are horrible for my teeth, discoloring them on top of many other things that I probably eat or drink. It is hard to keep my teeth white especially after all that I do to them. I mean, I have thought about giving up coffee…. well no I really haven’t because coffee is a must with 3 kiddos running around, haha! So It is nice and convenient to have something at home to do a quick whitening process whenever I feel my teeth start getting a little stained.
So like I said before I have used so many other whitening products. I mean you name it and I probably tried it. What I used the most was crest white strips. But every time I used them I could tell they were so bad for my teeth. I have sensitive teeth and every time I used those it was so painful. At the time I thought ‘hey beauty is pain’, but probably not the best thing to think when it comes to my teeth. Also I felt like it made my teeth thinner. Ha! Weird I know it might have just been me overthinking but I stopped using those because it just didn’t feel right.
Besides the custom tray another one of my favorite things about Smile Brilliant is the desensitizing gel that they provide you. Like I said before my teeth are super sensitive to teeth whitening products and using this after whitening was amazing! I honestly did not feel any pain at all. That is a lot coming from me. I don’t think I have ever used a whitening product that didn’t hurt my teeth at least a little bit. This desensitizing gel does wonders and is an absolute must for teeth whitening for me.

A great thing about using Smile brilliant is that you have that custom tray forever( well maybe not forever, but a long time) and it is reusable. So when you run out of whiting gel you just order only the gel which is $35 for 3 syringes that accounts for 9-12 uses. I mean that is a great deal I think! It is more than half of the cost that an actual dentist would charge, so you really can’t go wrong with that.
If you are wondering the exact process, let me explain.
You order your Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit.
Once you receive it your box looks like this.
So first you brush and floss your teeth to prepare for the impressions process.
You combined the Catalyste (white) paste with the Base (blue) paste. Mix well together until it is all blue. You need to do this quickly because the paste dries really fast. So only do one tray at a time.
Next you put that paste evenly unto one of the trays. Place the tray on your teeth and press it in so that it makes the impressions. Do not bite or wiggle the tray because that will ruin the mold. Keep it there for at least 2 mins and 30 sec or until the mold has hardened.
After that you remove the tray and repeat the same steps for your bottom mold.
When those are both done. You let it set and dry for at least 30 minutes then rinse with cold water. Make sure the mold is completely hard before you mail it. I let it sit overnight just to be sure. Here are what mine looked like when I was finished.
Then mail it out in the free shipping package/label they provide for you and wait for your custom trays!
So after you receive your custom trays you are ready to start whitening! Here is what mine looked like.
Before you begin you need to rinse out your trays to make sure they are clean and dry. Then brush your teeth with just water. Then right before applying the trays dry your teeth.
First you take the whitening gel syringe and line the inside of the trays lightly. You place the trays on your top and bottom teeth and wait 45 min to 3 hours. It is up to you. I first started with 90 minutes just in case my teeth got sensitive. But they didn’t! So the next couple of days I did it longer.
Next you remove the trays and brush your teeth with toothpaste.
Then you rinse out your trays and apply the desensitizing gel into the trays and leave those in for about 30 mins. After you remove those do not rinse it off of your teeth. Also it is recommended that you do not eat for 30 mins after. The best time to do this is before bed. So then the desesitizing gel can soak in over night.
So here is what you have been waiting for. The before and after pictures! You can obviously see a difference.You can see my teeth are a few shades whiter! This is huge for me. It is so hard finding a good teeth whitener. The best is that I get to do it in the conivence of my own home and still have my coffee! I am in love with Smile Brilliant. Once I am out of theses gels I will be for sure be getting more. If this is something you have been on the market for you have found a great one here.
