Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit Review

Hey guys! You all know I love trying and reviewing new products for you all. There is nothing worse  than spending money on a product just to use it once, hate it and let it collect dust. That's what I'm here for :)

Smile Brilliant reached out to me a few months ago to partner with them to review their whitening kit and give one of you a kit for free (more on that at the end of this post). At first I was honestly skeptical because I have tried several whitening products (including ones from the dentist) and they caused so much teeth sensitivity, so I used them very rarely. Now before I go any further, I want to make it clear that these opinions are my own and I said from the get-go that if I were going to review their products I would be honest to you all. I feel like since I have tried other whitening products, it was a good platform to see how well this kit compares to them. 

So, included in the teeth whitening kit is a tray creation kit, whitening gel and desensitizing gel. This caught my eye, because I bought all of this at my dentist (different whitening gels) I think last year and just the tray cost me as much as this whole kit. (I ended up not going through with the gel from my dentist because my gums burned the minute I put my trays in. Ouch!)

So first, you make your imprints and send them out. I read the instructions and I was like oh, boy I'm going to mess this up haha! but I promise it was so easy! Just make sure to read and understand all the instructions before making your imprints because it hardens so fast. Once those are done, put them in the prepaid envelope and ship them off. You will get your finished trays in just a few days and you're ready to start the process


The first session I did was a 45 minute whitening followed by 20 minutes desensitizing session. The first session was the most shocking to me:

BEFORE FIRST SESSION


AFTER 45 MINUTES OF WHITENING


My total whitening process was 22 days. In that period I did 5 periods of whitening ranging from (45 minutes to 2 hours) and 10 rounds of desensitizing (from 20-45 minutes) One time did 2 hours of the desensitizing gel by accident because I thought it was the whitening treatment haha! But I followed that with two 2 hour periods of whitening within a couple of days. I experienced very little sensitivity throughout the whole process which I was happy about because that was the main issue I had with whitening in the past.  

Although I will continue the whitening treatments, I wanted to share my whitening process this far:

BEFORE AND AFTER


I have noticed a huge difference in my teeth especially when I look at old pictures or even just glancing in the mirror. Sometimes I have to stop and just smile in the mirror to check out my pearly whites haha! #noshame I am definitely not done with my whitening process. This is just the beginning for me. I continue to see improvement with each time I whiten, so I will keep doing frequent whitening treatments until my teeth reach their natural white color and then just maintain my teeth whiteness from there.

I would love to answer any questions you have in the comments below. CLICK HERE for more info on what to know before buying.

Also, I love THIS VIDEO in explaining the process. 

TIPS FOR USING SMILE BRILLIANT

If you suffer from teeth sensitivity with whitening like I do, I recommend using the desensitizing gel a few times before starting the actual whitening process and the days between whitening. This will help SO much with sensitivity.

DON'T overfill your trays. 

Wipe your gums with a wet q-tip after inserting trays to wipe any gel that may have overflowed. This prevents gum irritation.

Rub Vaseline on your gums before putting your whitening trays in if you do experience gum sensitivity.

Drink coffee, coke, and anything that can stain your teeth with a straw! I usually drink my morning coffee with a straw anyway, but I highly recommend this during your whitening sessions. You don't want coffee stained teeth but also don't want to waste all that hard work by restaining your teeth again. 

Of course, total disclaimer, but make sure you talk to your dentist before starting any whitening process. I talked to mine and learned so much from just a five minute convo :)

Now for the fun part!! I am giving away a Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit to one of you lovely followers! This will include $139.95 credit to get 1 tray creation kit & 6 gel syringes (your choice of whitening and/or desensitizing gels).
