“Put a smile on your face, make the world a better place. Put a smile on your face, whatcha gonna do, say whatcha gonna do.(Vitamin C song back in the day!) I had to start this post off with that song because you will be smiling brilliantly when you see the amazing results from this product!! I collaborated with Smile Brilliant to try their home teeth whitening kit. You guys know I love to smile and laugh all the time (just take a look at my Instagram @mymaynewardrobe), not to mention I am a coffee lover and love my Cabernet, so that equals stains and more stains.
So anything that could make my pearly whites even whiter, I was willing to give it a try. I know for myself it is important to look and feel confident every day. A smile sometimes is all it takes to lighten someone’s mood or exude confidence head to toe. I am sure you ladies can relate that we want to put our best foot forward every day. So, I was willing to try something new with this home teeth whitening kit. Now, this is the first time I have ever tried a teeth whitening kit and I have to say I was pleased with the entire process and results.
These products were sent to me by Smile Brilliant, but all of my opinions are my own. So without further ado onto the review!!!
Contents of the kit included:
- Base paste- for the impression
- Catalyst Paste- for the impression
- Two plastic trays one for the upper and one for lower to make the impressions of your teeth
- 3 whitening gels and 3 desensitizing gel
- Case to hold your custom trays
Making the Impressions:
- What makes Smile Brilliant more effective is you are able to make custom impressions of your teeth. This allows the whitening gel to really cover and penetrate all the surfaces of your teeth making for a better whitening experience. The instructions to make the impressions are easy. Just make sure you set some time aside to make them because it is a process and have a timer. Here are some things to know before buying teeth whitening.
- Next, Smile Brilliant provides a pre-paid package to place your impressions and off they go to the lab!! No fuss!! Much better than going into a dentist’s office right!! What a time saver!!
Then we wait.. Dance Party is welcomed!!
- Custom trays are here!! I waited approximately 2 weeks to get mine back.
Now the fun starts. Again easy and simple directions and what I like about the instructions (because I am a visual learner) are the pictures, which make them easier to follow. Here is a video on the whitening process. I also love the fact the whitening gel and desensitizing gels are in plastic syringes which make it easy to dispense the product into the trays!! Genius!!!
Overall this product is amazing and I got amazing results. I did have some gum sensitivity in the beginning, but the desensitizing gel helped tremendously. This is a very important step because it helps the teeth rehydrate after the whitening process. In the beginning, I think I was using too much so I decreased the amount. I also whitened every other day versus every day and that really helped. My gums tolerated the gel much better when it was spread out. If you have sensitive teeth like mine, I would recommend whitening for 45 minutes at first and then work your way up to 3 hours. You have to do what works for you and it does mention that in the instructions.
It is totally convenient!!! You don’t have to take a trip to the dentist office you can whiten in the comfort of your own home!!! Preferably you want to whiten after you eat so that would be right before bed. I would have the trays on while I was washing dishes, watching television, reading (again it’s all about convenience and being in your home!!)
As the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.” Don’t believe me?? Check for more Smile Brilliant Reviews to see all the happy customers!!!
