DISCLOSURE: I received this product complimentary from Smile Brilliant in exchange for a review of their product. As always, all content and opinions are entirely my own and 100% honest. I would never recommend or review something I wouldn’t personally use or buy myself.
When I was contacted by Smile Brilliant to try their teeth whitening kit, I was over the moon to try it. I for one am always not comfortable with my smile for a number of reasons. Them being an off yellow tint would be one of the major things that bug me about my smile, I don’t like to smile often because of it.
I have tried my share of teeth whitening stripes before and they just didn’t work for me at all. So I pretty much gave up until Smile Brilliant reached out to me. Their teeth whitening kit only cost the value of $149, which isn’t as bad as other programs that can cost you well over $400.
How does Smile Brilliant work?
The kit contains everything you will need material wise to make the teeth impressions. The kit includes: Base and Catalyst Paste to make your impressions, as well as teeth whitening gels and teeth desensitizing gels. You will also receive detailed instructions for making your impressions as well as tips for whitening.
This is the part where you have to pay attention to what you are doing, because if you don’t do it right, you will mess up the clay for the impressions. Now they send a backup in case you mess it up. Mix the Base and Catalyst paste completely until they are blended and no white streaks remain. But don’t mix too long though otherwise the mixture will harden and you won’t be able to bite down and make the impression.
Fill the retainer with the mixture and then bite down on them. Leave them in your mouth for a minimum of two minutes and once they are hardened you can pop them out. Once you have finished your impressions, wait 30 minutes for them to harden and then mail them back in the included pre-paid shipping envelope. You then send the trays back to Smile Brilliant and a few weeks later you will receive your impressions in the mail and you can start whitening your teeth.
The Whitening Process
Once you get your custom fitted trays in the mail, you will be able to whiten your teeth. First thing you need to do is read over the papers that came with the kit, they’re really important. Just add a thing even layer of the whitening gel into the trays and press them onto your teeth. Smile Brilliant recommends you wearing them for 45 minutes to 3 hours at a time. The first time I tried doing it for 45 minutes, but to my surprise my teeth feel totally fine. I turned on some Netflix to make the time go by faster.
After you use the whitening gel, you can apply the desensitizing gel the same way you applied the whitening gel, except you only do it for 15-20 minutes. It’s that easy. My favorite part about the whole experience is how easy the whole process is and how amazing your teeth look afterwards. Just one syringe of the whitening gel (each syringe gets you 3-4 whitening session. I was sent 4 syringes of each kind, and I’ve just did 4 sessions so far and you can really tell the difference.
