There is no doubt that I am creature of habit, especially when it comes to my rituals. I like to start my day with coffee, sip on sweet tea with lunch and finish the day with a glass of wine and maybe a bubble bath! You can probably see why I may need to whiten my teeth!
When it comes to personal hygiene, beauty and everyday appearance, nothing says more than a pretty smile. From the time I was a teenager, I was slightly obsessed with whitening my teeth. As I got older, I was interested in trying a whitening process that would be a little more serious, but I just couldn’t ever bring myself to go through the process whitening from the dentist. For me, a beautiful smile says a lot about someone. Having my teeth white and clean, is a priority!
Recently, I discovered Smile Brilliant which is an easy at home whitening treatment. I have been using Smile Brilliant for the past month and have been really loving my results. I wanted to share my results and the entire process with you, in case you are interested in trying a different whitening system.
I have always been skeptical of trying different whitening systems and to be honest, I’m not a fan of waiting on results, for anything really. Patience is exactly my strong point, but I’m working on that! When Smile Brilliant reached out to me, I can’t say that I wasn’t skeptical, because you just never know. However, I had heard quite a few good things about their products, so I wanted to give it a try so that I could share my results with you! Like I said before, I don’t like waiting so I was a little weary when I found out that I had to send back my impressions and wait to get my trays. But all of my worries were put away with their quick turn around time! The process was really simple and the turn around time was much quicker than expected. In this post, I am going to walk you through the quick process I used to whiten my teeth at home.
How I Whiten My Teeth At Home
Impressions + Trays
Upon receiving my whitening kit from Smile Brilliant, I was instructed to make an impression of my teeth and ship the impressions back to them in the envelope provided. Postage was included and everything was easy! After following the simple process of mixing the catalyst and base pastes, fitting them into the blue trays provided and fitting the combination around my teeth for a few moments, I was able to ship my impressions back to Smile Brilliant. The turnaround time for getting my trays back in the mail was very short, only about a week in total, from dropping my impressions in the mailbox to receiving my trays back. The process was easy and I was then ready to start whitening!
Once I received my trays, I immediately began whitening my teeth. The process was simple and I experienced little sensitivity. I began by applying a thin line of whitening gel into the tray and leaving it in for about 45 minutes, to an hour. You can leave the trays in for up to 3 hours, but I have just been working my way up, a little, each time I whiten. After just my first application I saw immediate results, which had me excited and ready for more whitening. I repeated the same process each day for about a week now and I’m really happy with the results.
This part is so important, especially if you have a sensitive mouth like me! Thankfully I didn’t receive a lot of sensitivity, but if you do each kit comes with a few syringes of Desensitizing Gel that you put in the trays, the same way you do the whitening gel, and leave it in for about 15 minutes. This helps with sensitivity as well as decalcification which I personally experienced, however I cleared it up quickly with the Desensitization Gel. Decalcification is common side effect from whitening, but is easily fixed. You can read more about that here. The Desensitizing Gel is probably one of my favorite parts about this kit because many companies provide whitening kits, but Smile Brilliant actually provides you to a solution to sensitive, should you experience it!
The process is that simple, all you have to do is keep on whitening!
Overall, I am really happy with the results I received from the Smile Brilliant whitening kit! The process was easy and the results were immediate. It’s a much cheaper alternative than going through the hassle of going to a dentist to get a whitening treatment. I love that each syringe of whitening gel provides between 3-4 whitening applications, which makes the product more affordable and lasts longer than most.
