I am so EXCITED to be sharing my review of Smile Brilliant with you all today. This review is perfectly timed considering I had been seeing a number of bloggers and people on Instagram talking about Smile Brilliant and always wondered for myself what it was all about, if it worked, and how it affected your teeth.
Here's the thing....as an AVID coffee and tea drinker I have dealt with teeth staining and yellowing for years! I have tried multiple different remedies such as crest whitening strips, toothpaste, mouth wash, hydrogen peroxide, etc. and nothing seemed to give me decent results. The hard thing about it is that I LOVE coffee and tea to MUCH to give them up, so truth be told I would sometimes feel slightly self concious about my teeth when I smiled (and I love to smile) because I knew they were not as bright as I wanted them to be. Therefore, I wanted something to bring my teeth back to their natural white color. With that being said, I was fortunate enough as to be contacted by Smile Brilliant to do a collaboration and try out their product. With that being said, I am so excited to be sharing a review today of my experience with Smile Brilliant and giving you the opportunity to try it for yourself
(so keep on reading till the end for an exclusive giveaway).
A few quick facts about Smile Brilliant before we get started:
- First off, all of their products are produced in the USA (super great right!).
- Their teeth whitening process actually opens up the pores in your teeth to remove years of stains and then allows them to naturally reminaralize & rehydrate so it is TOTALLY 100% safe and healthy for your teeth (you can checkout this video).
- The custom fitted whitening trays make sure that the whitening gel stays within every angle of your teeth and that they are receiving equal coverage and whitening.
- DOUBLE BONUS is that Smile Brilliant is basically a private dental lab without the dentist and allows you to whiten your teeth professionally on your own time and you can save up to 70% off the normal price to whiten your teeth.
First off, before you can even start your teeth whitening process, Smile Brilliant sends you the kit with everything you will need, including trays and putty to take impressions of your teeth. One of the biggest things I love about Smile Brilliant is that they make custom teeth whitening trays that fit your mouth and teeth perfectly in order to get an even whitening change, and because they are fitted specifically to your teeth they are comfortable to wear and you can even talk in them if need be:)
Once you receive your kit you must make an impression of your top and bottom teeth. This is one of the most important (and kind of fun) steps as it will affect the equal coverage of the whitening gel. The instructions explain all of the important steps, but overall each impression takes 5-10 minutes to take and let sit.
After you have taken your impressions you then fill out the return slip that was included in the kit and place your trays along with the slip in the return package that Smile Brilliant included. Next up is to drop off the package at the post office and wait for your custom trays to arrive!
I started my Smile Brilliant process towards the middle of December and would use the treatment 2-3 times a week. Typically the average person only needs 7-14 treatments to get accurate results, so by the time I was ready to share my review I had completed 14 treatments and went through 3 syringes of the whitening gel.
After just 3 applications I began to notice a difference in the color of my teeth, and every time I would complete a treatment I noticed them gradually loosing their yellow color and stains (cue inward happy dance). I was quite impressed by the results I saw after only a week of using Smile Brilliant, as well as how it made my teeth feel.
In the past whenever I would use a whitening toothpaste or mouth wash I would experience some sensitivity, and therefore have always assumed that I had sensitive teeth. Therefore, I was a bit apprehensive as to how my teeth would react to the Smile Brilliant system. However, the great thing about Smile Brilliant is that they actually take teeth sensitivity into account and include a Desensitizing Gel as part of the treatment. Therefore, throughout the course of using Smile Brilliant I never experienced any sensitivity in my teeth which completely shocked me!
When I would do the treatments I liked to do them 1-2 hours before I went to bed. This worked out well because I wouldn't be tempted to eat anything (which you are supposed to avoid for at least 1-2 hours). Also, when it came to the length of each Whitening Treatment I started off with a shorter time and would use the whitening trays for 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of desensitizing gel. However, after two weeks I bumped up the time to 1-1.5 hours followed by the desensitizing gel. The great thing about the Desensitizing Gel, is that it rehydrates the pours in your teeth and builds up the minerals.
The only thing I did run into while using Smile Brilliant, was that at one point I experience a bit of sensitivity in my gums (not my teeth), but I realized that was because I had used the Whitening Gel every other day that week and because of that I switched to making sure I always had a minimum of two days in between applications. After that I didn't experience the problem again.
Overall I was HIGHLY impressed with my Smile Brilliant experience and loved working with their helpful team. I can now personally say that Smile Brilliant really does work and is great for people (like me) who have experienced sensitivity to teeth whitening products in the past. While Smile Brilliant might be a bit of an investment their products will last you until you get the achieved results and are definitely your best choice for getting a professional teeth whitening experience from the comfort of your own home, have custom fitted whitening trays made just for you, and at the same time keep your teeth as healthy as possible.
