Good morning friends! Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so I am so excited to be teaming up with Smile Brilliant today to share how I’ve been whitening & brightening my smile! This is something that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. As most of you know, I love coffee & red wine, neither of which are ideal for keeping your smile sparkly white. Over the counter whitening products never did much for me, so when Smile Brilliant reached out, I was eager to give their professional system a try. I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with my results & the Smile Brilliant at-home teeth whitening system! The Smile Brilliant custom teeth whitening kit is just like what you’d receive at a dentist’s office, at a fraction of the cost. Plus, Smile Brilliant makes it so easy to get custom teeth whitening trays from the comfort of your home – their kit contains everything you need!
The first step is making your molds. The kit contains three sets of base putty & catalyst, plus two mold trays & detailed instructions. You just mix the base & catalyst together, press it into the molds, & press the molds over your teeth. I have a permanent retainer on the back of my bottom teeth & had no problem making my molds. Once your impressions are made & set overnight, you mail them to Smile Brilliant in the pre-paid envelope provided. In a few business days, you receive your personal, custom-fitted whitening trays! Easy-peasy! Having custom-fitted trays ensure the your entire tooth surface is evenly exposed to the whitening gel, unlike the whitening strips that I could never seem to get to stay on my teeth.
Once your trays arrive, you’re ready to start whitening! Each syringe has 3-4 treatments in it, depending on the size of your mouth & how much gel you’ll need for each tray. You just line the front of each tray with the gel, then slide them in for up to 3 hours. I started at 45 minutes, every other night, working up to 1.5 hours every night. One of the biggest pros of the Smile Brilliant system is the desensitizing gel that you put on after each whitening treatment. The desensitizing gel diminishes tooth sensitivity, which is a common complaint with whitening systems due to dehydration of the tooth, replenishes the natural minerals in your teeth, & prevent new stains from forming. I had no issues with sensitivity during or after my treatments, which was my main concern before starting the system.
While the instructions say not to eat or drink for at least 30 minutes following a treatment, I schedule my treatments for right before bed & then don’t drink anything until the next morning so that the gels have plenty of time to do their thing. I started noticing a difference in my teeth after two weeks of treatment & have continued treatments to get even better results! Smile Brilliant is the best at-home teeth whitening system that I’ve tried. Once I get to the desired results, Smile Brilliant recommends 4-6 touch-up treatments per year to maintain the results. Feel free to reach out with any questions you have about Smile Brilliant or my experience!
