If you’re anything like me, you wake up in the morning wondering what type of caffeine you will have to jump start your day. Will it be home-brewed coffee? English Breakfast tea? A vanilla latte with one of those cute little sleeves on the cup? Although all these options are super tasty, they tend to wreak havoc on my white teeth. To help keep my smile white and bright from home, I tried the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system, and I’m happy to share that one of YOU will also now have the opportunity to try it out too!
When Jessica with Smile Brilliant first reached out to me to try their product, a lot of things ran through my head. Was I being chosen because my teeth looked yellow? Did she think I needed whiter teeth?! Eeeek! All the insecurities, guys. LOL! At that moment, I was not one to #smilefearlessly!
What it boiled down to, though, was my lifestyle. Building our new home, I have some extremellllyyy early mornings which means if you see me I will most ALWAYS have a cup in hand. (Exhibit A below. Haha!) I’m a huge fan of coffee, tea, and lattes and – CONFESSION TIME – I’m on a first-name basis with many local baristas around town. Being that I drank coffee and tea so much, and had pretty white teeth, Jessica wanted to see if the Smile Brilliant system could help me maintain my white smile – and it definitely did!
I had just had my teeth cleaned at a dentist when I heard from Jessica, and after about 4 weeks of drinking caffeinated beverages at least once a day (sometimes two and three times per day), I can say that my teeth are still white and bright! Here’s a breakdown of the process I went through to maintain my white teeth at home.
Smile Brilliant Delivered to my Mailbox
After giving the green light to try this at-home teeth whitening system, my order was placed and I received an email stating that my teeth whitening kit had been shipped! In less than one week, I received a box in the mail that – to my surprise – not only contained the contents to make my custom trays, but the whitening gel and desensitizing gel too! This meant as soon as my custom trays came back, I could start whitening right away. That was pretty neat, and I’m glad there wasn’t any extra down time.
Sending in My Molds
The little containers to make your custom teeth molds looked intimidating at first, but underneath the containers were plenty of step-by-step instructions with photos to ensure your molds are done correctly. After a did mine, I noticed a few spots that I was unsure about. Before mailing them off (packaging to send everything back was included!), I shot an email over to the Smile Brilliant team and they answered all of my questions right away.
Once my molds were in the mail, I received another follow-up email when the lab received my trays. No worries! So easy!
Receiving my Custom Trays + Whitening
After only about one week, my custom trays arrived in the mail! They fit great and definitely felt professionally made… Seriously, y’all. I’ve had identical ones made at a dental office and these cost much less and were the exact. same. thing.
Finally… YAY! It was whitening time! Every day for two weeks I whitened my teeth with the whitening gel for at least 45minutes – 1 hour. I usually did this after taking my shower in the evening and before I went to bed. My husband and I have been binge watching The Office (again!) so it worked out perfectly. Netflix and Whiten, anyone?! Haha!
Another thing I loved is that it came with Desensitizing Gel. About one week in, my teeth did get a little sensitive, but it was great to know that I had the desensitizing gel to help tone things down and protect and replenish the important nutrients my teeth need to keep their enamel strong. So many other at-home teeth whitening programs do not take this into consideration.
My teeth didn’t get much whiter because, like I mentioned previously, I had just had them professionally cleaned and they were already pretty white (see top photo of my teeth below), but I was impressed at how white they stayed using this product. I can pound down some serious coffee and tea and I was really surprised that my teeth remained white throughout the entirety of using Smile Brilliant. I’ve tried other teeth whiteners, like the tooth paste kind, the gel strips, and even the carbon black stuff, and this system was the easiest to use, and had the most professional results.
Overall, I would recommend this to others to try if you are looking for a good at-home teeth whitener because: 1) The trays are custom made 2) The whitening gel is serious stuff 3) The desensitizing gel is great to keep your teeth healthy 4) It is super easy to do and all you have to do is go online if you want to order more!
Here are another person’s results for reference too. (Poor thing has some chapped lips, but these photos are completely unedited!)
