Smile Brilliant + GIVEAWAY

Teeth whitening is something that I have always been interested in, but I have not throughly experimented with. Last year during prom season I punched the crest 3D white strips and I saw a very subtle difference in the whiteness of my teeth but nothing too crazy. So, when the Smile Brilliant team reached out to us to try their at home whitening kit we knew it would be a great partnership. 

The first teeth whitening kit arrived very quickly and the packaging was so cute! The first step in our teeth whitening journey was to create a mold for our customized teeth whitening trays. Inside the kit is a catalyst and base paste that you mix together and place in a mouthguard type thing to make the mold. I was nervous that the paste would taste bad and be messy, however it was completely painless. After finishing the molds we put them back in the prepaid envelope and mailed them back to Smile Brilliant to have the custom fitted teeth whitening trays made (see the benefits of custom fitted trays) . The completed trays arrived about a week later and we were able to begin whitening. 

Before starting whitening I was slightly nervous about experiencing sensitivity. Personally, I have never had sensitive teeth and did not experience any sensitivity throughout the whitening process, however I know many people have. Smile Brilliant discusses how to handle whitening with sensitive teeth in depth. They explain the causes, how to fix, and how to minimize teeth sensitivity during the whitening process. In my experience, the desensitizing gel used after a session of whitening works very well to create a somewhat numb feeling in your teeth. You can also opt against whitening every night if you have sensitive teeth and just do it a few times a week. 

The recommended whitening time is 45 minutes to 2 hours followed by 15-20 minutes of desensitizing. You are not supposed to eat or drink for 30 minutes after whitening, so I found that it was best if done after dinner and before bed. Over the course of about a month of whitening, I was able to make it part of my nightly routine and was excited to see the results continue to improve throughout the process. I am a big coffee drinker, which obviously is not great for keeping your teeth white and I would 100% recommend Smile Brilliant to anyone in the same boat. Both Julianna and I agree that you can really see the results right after a whitening session. It is definitely a gradual process but after using all the whitening gel you can see the difference.

A Smile Brilliant kit retails for $119.95 versus $400+ from a dentist. If you are interested in trying their whitening kit, make sure to read what to know before buying, and any other reviews & videos if you are looking for multiple perspectives.
