Growing up I almost never smiled showing my teeth. It was always a closed mouth, pressed lips situation. Now, as an adult it’s more of a creepy cousin Fred situation so it’s very important to me that my pearly whites are actually white. While I’m not a coffee drinker and I prefer white wine I usually don’t start my day without a cup of tea which can be just as (and more in some cases) staining. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to try their teeth whitening kit I was totally down!
This is not my first go round with teeth whitening. My brother is a lab tech and made me a set of bleaching trays when he graduated. I saw great results, but due to tooth sensitivity I had to stop before seeing complete results. With the Smile Brilliant kit you’re able to make your own bleaching trays at home AND it comes with a desensitizing gel for you to use after each whitening session.
The process is easy- Smile Brilliant sends over a kit that comes with a set of molds for you to make at home and send back to their lab. I have to say I was initially worried about making my mold, but it was fairly easy and it comes with an extra set of the catalyst and base pastes in case you mess up… I messed up haha! Within a week you will receive your custom trays.
Since I already had a history of sensitivity I whitened 45 minutes – 1 hour every other night. I first tried without using the desensitizing gel and after about 3 sessions I added the gel to my regimen which really made a huge difference. I whitened before bed to avoid the temptation of eating or drinking anything that might re-stain my teeth. Within just a few sessions I started to see results and after a couple of weeks of whitening every other day my smile was noticeably brighter!
