What is the first thing that catches your eye in a photo? For me, it’s the smiles of the people in the picture. The prettiest thing you can wear is a smile, and I am a firm believer in that line. But, if you’re anything like me, we just don’t have the time or the finances to got get our teeth professionally whitened every few weeks. There are easier ways to keep your smile white and bright, like Smile Brilliant. I am going to show you how to whiten teeth at home, anytime, no matter what you’re doing.

I have always been skeptical about whitening products, mostly because my teeth are extremely sensitive. I have used normal 7-10 whitening strips in the past, and the results are just okay. They don’t seem to last very long and they aren’t extreme whitening results by any means. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try their products (especially when I saw the gel for sensitivity) I was in!The best system to use for teeth whitening and tips on how to whiten teeth at home using Smile Brilliant whitening system.

*This kit was sent to me in exchange for my honest review of the Smile Brilliant products. I would never recommend anything that I haven’t tried and love myself.

How to Whiten Teeth at Home

By far, my favorite thing about this kit is all of things that you can do #whileIwhiten! It’s so much better than sitting in a dentist chair. Especially with kids and a busy schedule, I need to be able to keep up my beauty routine while working, studying, and spending time with my family. I can do all of these things with Smile Brilliant.

Here are my before and after photos, so that you can see right away the difference that the Smile Brilliant products made for me.

Both pictures were taken in natural lighting, with no makeup on to truly show the color change of my teeth. As you can see I have gotten some really great results.

About the Kit

The kit contains all of the things you need for your tray molds and teeth whitening. It gives you step-by-step clear instructions and makes the process fast and simple. The first thing that you will have to do is make your molds. This is done by using the base and the catalyst paste, and mixing them together. You put the paste into the tray, let it sit around your teeth, and voila! If you have ever had a retainer made, the process is pretty much the same. img_5024

After that, the plastic trays get sent back to you and your whitening can begin! Just use the syringe to place the whitening gel, followed by the desensitizing gel after you’re done whitening, into the trays, and then go about your day/night.

The one thing that I will say about this kit is that I had sensitivity issues in the beginning. However, I normally am extremely sensitive to all whitening products, so it didn’t really surprise me. After speaking with one of the lovely representative at Smile Brilliant on how to help this, I learned a few tips. If you are having issues with sensitivity when using this product as the directions state:

  • Use the Desensitizing Gel before you whiten for 20-30 as well as after.
  • Use is on the days when you do not whiten at all, just to hydrate and mineralize teeth.
  • Check out more tips for sensitivity here.

I would recommend starting with shorter sessions, and working your way up to the 1.5 hours or more. This whitening kit really works, which means it is powerful. So, starting shorter will give you the same results if you do it consistently and work your way up to longer wear times. This can also help if you are also having issues with sensitivity like I was.
