Disclosure: I received the custom sensitive whitening kit for free in exchange for my honest review. As always all opinions are my own.
Taking time for yourself as a mother is always challenging. Prioritizing self-care is not one of my strong suits. I typically give all I have to being a mother and partner while neglecting to take enough time to care for my physical and mental health. When I was approached by Smile Brilliant to test their custom whitening system, I saw it as a way to try something new and fit self-care into my day.
I had never considered the whiteness of my teeth being an issue until my dental cleaning in Fall 2018. My dental hygienist noted that I had some staining, likely due to being a coffee drinker. Prior to this I hadn’t gave any thought to what my apparent coffee addiction was doing to my teeth. The most exciting thing about the Smile Brilliant whitening system is that it is professional quality at a fraction of the cost.
As a self proclaimed Eco-warrior, my next question regarding the whitening system was how much waste comes with it? When the package arrived I saw that the only non recyclable components were the wrappers from the syringes. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that the Smile Brilliant formula is vegan and cruelty-free. This is an important factor that I take into account when buying many products.
You received your kit. Now what?
The first step when receiving your kit is to take impressions of your teeth so you can receive your custom molds. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. If you make a mistake, a third set of the impression putty is included so all is not lost. After you have created your teeth impressions, mail them back to Smile Brilliant. Before you know it, your custom whitening trays will arrive and you can begin the process.
The Whitening Routine
They recommend whitening for 45 minutes to 3 hours in the evening before bed. Following the whitening gel, you apply the desensitizing gel for 15 to 20 minutes to ensure new staining doesn’t happen. I started out at 45 minutes and worked up to around 90 minutes, the sweet spot for my process. With small kids to put to bed, I didn’t feel like I could stay awake for 3 hours after them to whiten.
After the first session, I noticed a difference. With each subsequent evening (I did every other night for two weeks) my teeth got brighter and whiter. Friends and family noticed the difference too and were excited for me.
Although I hadn’t considered my teeth to be stained before, after seeing the difference Smile Brilliant made, I can see the yellowish tinge they had before. I love to show off my new super white smile!
