Teeth Whitening with Smile Brilliant
Who doesn’t want a nice, white smile?! I’m almost embarrassed to share my “before” pics in this blog post with you guys. I am the perfect candidate for a teeth whitening service: I have a cup of coffee most mornings, I drink red wine on the regular (like a glass a night at least 3x a week), I looove sweets, and I honestly just don’t take care of my teeth as well as I should.So when Smile Brilliant approached me about a collaboration, you better believe I said heck yes! So here’s what I loved (and some things I didn’t love) about my teeth whitening experience with Smile Brilliant.
Every customer gets to make a custom mold of their teeth that they then create custom trays with. I was SO impressed by this! My trays fit my teeth perfectly and I think really aided in the whitening process. I had only used one other whitening kit before trying Smile Brilliant (back when Dav and I got married in 2013), and those whitening strips slipped all over the place! The customizable trays from Smile Brilliant was a HUGE pro to me.
You can select a “sensitive” kit if you have teeth sensitivity. The last time I used a different whitening kit, I ended up stopping before I finished the product because the gel made my teeth so sensitive! But I had no sensitivity issues with Smile Brilliant because I was able to select a sensitive package which includes a desensitizing gel that you put on after the whitening application. Game changer!
They ship worldwide. THANK YOU for not forgetting about us Canadians that need to whiten our teeth. Or the rest of the world for that matter!
If you have a decent amount of staining, be prepared for it to take awhile to lift those stains. I feel like this point is common sense, but just want to keep it real with you guys. If you have severe stains, your teeth aren’t going to be bright white after just one or two applications! It took me 8+ applications in total to get the results I wanted. And I would leave the whitening gel on for approximately 1.5 hrs/night.
You can’t eat or drink during the whitening process or afterwards for at least an hour. This is the biggest con I could think of while using my Smile Brilliant teeth whitening kit. They recommend whitening at night due to not being able to eat or drink for a little while afterwards. Which makes sense, but I’m a night time snacker. Some nights I would get down right HANGRY about not being able to have my bed time snack. I realize this is a pathetic #firstworldproblem.. but still – girls gotta eat. Ya know?!
What’s my overall verdict? Invest in a Smile Brilliant whitening package if you have noticeable stains on your teeth! Yes, the product is a little pricey – but you get a lot of product for the price you pay and you also get a new bright white smile to show off! Totally worth it in my opinion. I mean… check out my before and after 👌🏼
