I have a few confessions! First confession is that my teeth are yellow. Well, correction. They WERE yellow. Another confession is that I had serious doubts about using whiteners on my teeth. Do those things really work? Like…for real? Well, I am really excited to share with you that I tried a Smile Brilliant whitening kit and I never even had to leave my house.
Confession…before I tried Smile Brilliant, this is what I REALLY thought about teeth whitening….
“Those don’t really work…”
“I am way too busy for another appointment to get a good whitening kit.”
“The over the counter whitening strips probably aren’t good.”
“It’s going to take SOOOOO long to get my teeth white.”
“Will it damage my teeth?!”
I can’t be the only one who thinks this way, right? So, when I got a super gracious offer from Smile Brilliant to try their whitening kit I was really hesitant. Then I did some research and realized how this specific kit worked and decided to give it a whirl. The first thing that I loved about Smile Brilliant is that you never have to leave your house to use a Smile Brilliant whitening kit. Everything is sent right to your doorstep!
The fact that they deliver the kit to your house is amazing! We mom’s are busy, am I right? The Smile Brilliant kit is really convenient and there are instructions that spell everything out for you. So, here is what you will do:
Step #1 – Make your Dental Impressions
The first thing you will do is the most fun in my opinion. I made my own dental impressions. In your kit there are two pastes which you will mix together and then you put it in the tray and bite down. You will need to do the top and bottom set of teeth. They also give you an extra paste in case you mess up. I just think it’s really cool that you do this in the comfort of your own home and don’t have to make an appointment somewhere. Very cool!

Step #2 – Send in your Dental Impressions
The next thing you will do is send in your dental impressions. There is a ready to go envelope provided so all you have to do is drop it in the mail. Again, busy mom here- this is SO CONVENIENT!
Step #3 – Get your trays back and use the whitening gel
My trays fit perfectly so I got started as soon as I got them back in the mail. You will have to apply the teeth whitening gel to the trays and keep them in for 45 minutes to 3 hours. The first time I did it I was a little nervous that my teeth might be sensitive to the whitening gel, so I only did it for 45 minutes. Now I have worked my way up to 3 hours.
Another thing I thought was that the trays might be uncomfortable, but they aren’t. Also, I do it at night and that’s when I always get hungry for the junk food I just don’t need- so having these trays in keeps me from eating at night. Win/win!
Step #4 – Use the Sensitivity Gel
After you use the whitening gel you will need to rinse your trays out and pat them dry. Then apply the sensitivity gel to your trays for about 20 or so minutes. I really didn’t have any issues with my teeth being sensitive except sometimes the day after I would do this my teeth would be a little sensitive when I drank something cold, so that evening I used more sensitivity gel to my trays and wore them for a bit and then took a day off from whitening. The sensitivity gel REALLY helps! Here is more information on how to whiten sensitive teeth!
Seriously, this stuff works! I have been using it for a month every few days and I can see such a big difference!
If you are still not convinced, here are some other teeth whitening testimonials you can check out. I am telling you, it totally works. I am so glad I found Smile Brilliant. Plus it’s very reasonable for teeth whitening that WORKS!
