Teeth, they’re always somewhat stained no matter what you do, am I right?!
I was stoked when Jessica from Smile Brilliant emailed me and asked if I would like to try their product. As a mom to a high needs baby who lives off coffee, I quickly replied HECK YEAH!
The package comes with everything you need to start out: stuff to make your custom trays, whitening gel and desensitizing gel (which is really handy during the whitening process!).
The first thing you have to do is make your custom molds.
In layman’s words, basically, you just take the base and catalyst pastes, mix them together until you’re streak free, plop them evenly in the mold and press up into your gums. Easy as pie.
Well, probably easier when you’re not trying to take a “I’m not looking at you awkwardly while pressing this paste into my mouth evenly” selfie anyway.
Pro tip – don’t pull out the mold too eagerly… otherwise…. you’ll spit all over yourself. Case in point below.
After you get your perfect molds, you send them back to Smile Brilliant in a pre-labeled package.
A few days later, you get your custom trays straight from their labs! I was surprised how quickly I received my trays. I definitely couldn’t wait to start whitening!
Unfortunately, I suffered quite a bit of sensitivity and even a little soreness in my gums after my second attempt at using the whitening gel and desensitizing gel per the instructions given with my box.
I tried a few variations on the process with the help & suggestions of Jessica at Smile Brilliant. (She was amazing – as well as all of their customer service agents!). I tried whitening every other day, using more of the desensitizing gel, as well as coconut oil on my gums to protect them. Nothing seemed to help much. I had to draw the line at giving up coffee or drinking it through a straw – a personal choice to stay sane in the mornings rather than have pearly whites.
Luckily, Smile Brilliant has an amazing guarantee on your trays ($30 to replace if needed within 2 years) and a full money back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied within 45 days!
I would say, I was highly satisfied with Smile Brilliant as a company, but due to my sensitivity, I could not fully get the benefits of the product. I can say, I have seen many great transformation pictures on social media as well as their website and other blogs!
So, if you’re looking for a cool whitening system that is less abrasive to your teeth while still promising results, check them out!
