In the age of Instagram, we always have to be ready for pictures and what is always in the forefront of those pictures? Your smile. For today’s post, I am so happy to be partnering with Smile Brilliant and to tell you all about my experience with at home teeth whitening!
As a coffee and tea enthusiast (the term drinker just would not have done me justice here), I am constantly looking for teeth whitening products since we all know those delicious indulgences tend to leave stains that taint those pearly whites. I also happen to be getting married in September, so this was the perfect time for me to find the ultimate teeth whitening product that wouldn’t leave my teeth feeling too sensitive and would get the job done right.
Now let’s get into how Smile Brilliant’s professional teeth whitening kit works. You start out by receiving a kit that holds several items: little jars of clay for you to make your personalized molds, syringes filled with the teeth whitening gel, syringes filled with the desensitizing gel, plastic containers to create your molds, plastic container to hold them, and a prepaid envelope for you to send your molds out.
Your first step of the process is to create the molds. This easy process involves you mixing the white and blue clay to the best of your ability and lining the plastic trays with them. Once you got the clay in the plastic tray, you bite into the clay to create the molds and hold them in place to create the impression (about 2.5 minutes per tray). Once your impressions are done, you let them sit for about 30 minutes before rinsing them in cold water. Last step of this process is mailing the impressions out to the lab.
Once your impressions are received from the lab, your personalized whitening trays will be made. Those are shipped back to you (and the shipping is very quick) and you can start the whitening process!
Prior to using the whitening gel, brush teeth with water (no toothpaste) and clean your trays. Then, take your pre-filled syringes, remove the cap and apply the gel along the front surface of the tray. Insert the trays and whiten for desired effect (there’s a long range for the duration of the whitening. You can hold the trays in place for as short as 45 minutes and as long as 3 hours). I would recommend starting at 45 minutes and increasing from there. The longest I’ve actually had the trays in is just a little over an hour and the effect was so profound from just that, I don’t see myself using these for much longer at one time. Those who are familiar with Invisalign will notice a similarity between the trays. When your whitening trays are in, you can still pretty much do whatever is on your to-do list. You can still talk (although you may sound a bit funny) with the trays on although I would recommend against that to make sure the trays stay still. The way I usually did my whitening was I would put them in a few minutes before leaving to go somewhere knowing I had a long drive and just leave the trays on during the duration of the drive. I wouldn’t even think about having the trays in and they didn’t bother me at all. Once I got to my destination, I would take the trays out, rinse out my mouth and I was good to go.
Now let’s talk results. I’ve tried pretty much every whitening strip or mouthwash on the market and I’ve never seen a result quite as quickly as I saw it with Smile Brilliant. My teeth were noticeably whiter (and by noticeably I mean shades whiter just from one use) and I did not experience any sensitivity at all. For those that do experience sensitivity, the sensitivity gel will be your best friend. The box came with several pre-filled syringes and each one holds enough gel for 3-4 whitening treatments. I will be holding on to these for special events as this is the perfect way to whiten your teeth quickly, if needed.
