Easy At Home Professional Teeth Whitening with Smile Brilliant + Giveaway!

9:00 AM

I want to start off by saying a huge thank you to Erin and the amazing staff at Smile Brilliant for the opportunity to review their whitening system. A little disclaimer before we start: while this product was sent to me, all opinions are my own. This post is a collaboration with Smile Brilliant.

Now that is out of the way, let me give you guys a little whitening experience background. After I got my braces off in 8th grade my mom and I wanted to make sure my teeth stayed as nice as possible. I went to an extra cleaning for a while and when I was a freshman or sophomore I first started whitening my teeth. Before that I had used whitening toothpastes with I didn’t see much of a difference with so I was excited to be trying out something that would work. The first whitening product I used after that were these tray/strip hybrids made of a waxy material on the outside with the product lining the inside. I used these everyday for a 30-60 min as the box instructed and my teeth were noticeable whiter, but not by anything more that a shade or so. I wasn’t crazy about how these felt so next I tried strips which worked just about as well as the last one but they were so flimsy that I had to keep adjusting them during the whitening process. I kept using the whitening strips before special events like prom and graduation but I could never keep up with it; it was too much of a hassle. I never ventured into professional whitening because it was far to expensive for someone working a minimum wage summer camp job, and I didn’t want to ask my parents to pay for that.

It had been about a year since my last whitening session and I had just purchased a new set of those dreaded strips when I received an email from heaven, I mean Smile Brilliant. They offered me a chance to try their professional quality whitening system and share one with you guys as well. Keep reading to find out how you can win that

So I was so super excited about opening this that I didn’t take a picture of my box before I tore into it 😬 sorry guys! But it comes with trays to take molds, three pots of base, three of catalysis (both are for the molds),3 syringes of desensitizing gel and whitening gel.

The first step of the process was making the molds for the trays. If you’ve ever had braces, making the molds for you trays is just like when the orthodontist takes a mold of your teeth before and after except less traumatizing and not horrible tasting. I had to mix a blue polymer and a white activator together, put it in the mold tray and hold it on my teeth for 3 minutes for top and bottom.

One those are done, you pack the molds back up into the cute little pink pre-paid package that comes with your kit and send them back to Smile Brilliant where they work some magic. Within a week or so you have another cute pink package in the mail with the final product that is your whitening trays. There are a lot like the clear retainers or Invisalign if you’ve ever had either (sorry for all the orthodontic references)

After you get your whitening trays back in the mail you’re ready to rock and roll. It’s recommended that you prep your teeth by using the desensitizing gel for a few days. I have relatively sensitive teeth, so I prepped for 3 days before I started whitening. The process is super easy, you brush your teeth with just water, floss, line the front of the trays with a thin strip of the whitening gel, leave it on for 45 minutes up to 2 hours, brush your teeth normally clean the trays and line them with the desensitizing gel that stays on for 20 minutes. You can’t eat or drink after so it’s easiest to do this at night before you go to bed. I started out at 45 minutes and increased the time by 15 minutes each day I did it. Like I said before, my teeth are more on the sensitive side so I skipped a day between each session.

They trays are super comfortable, and you can go about the rest of your night without even thinking about them. This is really great, especially with my busy schedule. I was able to pop the trays in and get some homework done or a post written while I waited. Then I’d put the desensitizing gel on, hop in the shower and go to bed when I was done. It couldn’t be easier!

I noticed a difference in my teeth within a week of using the system and after finishing my teeth were noticeably white to others too! Before I would always get in my car and look and the mirror and the first thing I would notice was stained my teeth looked, but after using Smile Brilliant one of the first things I notice is how much brighter they look. I’m a girl who loves her iced coffee and I’m so glad this whitening holds up through my coffee obsession. As someone who is always taking lots of pictures, it’s definitely boosted my confidence especially when I’m taking shots that are closer to my face

Final Thoughts:

This product gets two thumbs up from me. You don’t need to carve out huge chunks of time to go to a dentist’s office or pay an arm and a leg for professional whitening. The trays are sturdy and reliable. The results were exactly what I hoped they would be and I will definitely be using Smile Brilliant again when it comes time to whiten again.
