If you really know me, you know how OCD I am about my teeth. My teeth have to be “perfect”. I have to have them feeling and looking super clean all the time, or else my confidence is nothing. Smile Brilliant reached out to me and asked me to try out their product and do a review on it. I have tried many different teeth whitening strategies like home remedies, charcoal teeth whitening, and the strips. Everything has honestly worked for me, but it only lasts so long.
I want to note that I have very sensitive teeth. I can’t even drink super cold drinks or eat ice cream if that tells you how sensitive my teeth are.
Also, I want to state one last thing before you start reading this post further. I know a lot of people will photoshop their pictures to make their teeth look whiter, but I want to assure you I have not photoshopped any of my photos on here! This whole post is about my honest opinion, negative or positive!
First, you will get a box from Smile Brilliant that will include the “Try Creation Kit”.
Other items included in this kit are:
- 3 CATALYST PASTES
- 3 BASE PASTES
- 2 IMPRESSION TRAYS
- 3 SYRINGES OF DESENSITIZING GEL
- 3 SYRINGES OF WHITENING GEL
- INSTRUCTION GUIDES (TRAY CREATION, DESENSITIZING GEL USAGE, WHITENING GEL USAGE)
- RETURN CARD AND POSTAGE-PAID ENVELOPE
One of my favorite things about this company is that their ingredients are vegan and animal cruelty-FREE! Click the link for more information!
The Impressions Process
Make sure you go over all the information in the box and read all the directions very carefully before you start! There are very specific time limits and steps you are supposed to follow to make good impressions.
So one of the first steps of this process you will have to make molds of your upper and lower teeth in the impression trays using the catalyst and base pastes. Its okay if you mess up because they will provide two sets of catalyst and base pastes for you. They also provide a guide to help you get the “perfect” impressions.
You will then send both impressions and the number card together in the postage-paid envelope they provide for you.
You will have to wait about 4-7 days to get your teeth whitening trays back.
Teeth Whitening Process
Again I want to make it very clear that you go over all the directions before starting the whitening process. The time limits are everything!
Before you get started I suggest getting paper towels on hand just in case you have extra gel going over your trays or saliva coming out of your mouth.
The kite comes with tubes of desensitizing gel and whitening gel. If you have sensitive teeth, the desensitizing gel can help prevent pain and tenderness associated with the whitening treatment. You may or may not need to use this gel. It does not impact the actual whitening process.
So first you will floss and brush your teeth. Then you will put a small line of the gel around the trays and then press than against your teeth. I always wore my trays for 45 minutes, you are able to wear them up to 3 hours though. If you have anything gel oozing out of the sides that means you did too much and just wipe it away with the paper towel. You might feel some sensitivity going on if the gel comes in contact with your gums.
For me personally, have the third use I felt some pain in the nerves of my teeth. If you have sensitive teeth you know that pain when you drink so cold/hot and it hits that one spot? Well, that is what it felt like for me but on multiple teeth! So I recommend that if your teeth are super sensitive like mine than to give each session sometime before you do it again. I personally used these trays once a week, and if I wasn’t doing a review I would have probably done it every two weeks because my teeth are super sensitive.
I have a friend that used Smile Brilliant as well and she felt no sensitivity problems. She was also able to use the product like every other day or every two days. So really each person is different.
Now the desensitizing gel that is provided does help with your sensitive teeth. I use mine constantly after each use, and its used the same way as the whitening gel, but only put on for about 20 minutes.
So when you are done with both gels you wash out your trays and store them in the container that the company provides for you.
The one thing I really hated when I was using this product was that you are not allowed to eat or drink anything for a few hours after your application. I am always thirsty for water, so this was really annoying to me.
After the second treatment I had whiter teeth, but after the seventh treatment, the whitening was very obvious to the world! Also, my teeth are now extremely sensitive, even more than what they already were. Now I have a lot of confidence with my beautiful pearl white teeth! The average U.S. dentist charges like $500 or/and more for the exact same service, for this treatment, be affordable and effective, I would highly recommend it to my friends and followers.
The teeth whitening process is simple and quick to get started
I love being able to putt he trays in and being able to do my normal activities at the same time
The whitening results are much faster than any other over the counter whitening treatment
I don’t like how sensitive it made my teeth
I do not like how I can’t drink or eat anything after the process
Very time consuming, I don’t like having a tray in my mouth for 45 minutes, so bravo to the people that do it for 3 hours
This is mine before and after pictures! The first photo was taken when I first got my trays back and was ready to start the whitening process. The second picture is what my teeth looked like three weeks later after I had done the teeth whitening trays. You can really see a difference!
