My Teeth Whitening Routine with Smile Brilliant + Giveaway

Between my coffee obsession and occasional tea, my teeth sure get their fair share of stains! I have been wanting to look into teeth whitening treatments for a while, but number one, I don't want to put just anything on my teeth, and two I don't want to spend $500 on a treatment.




So, I was absolutely stoked when I heard about Smile Brilliant AND had the opportunity to work with them to being you the ultimate at home teeth whitening system! I'm sure if you are active in the blog and Instagram world, Smile Brilliant isn't a new name to you. SO MANY influencers use this system, which added even more credibility when I was deciding to try it.

I have never done any whitening systems previously, not even the famous Crest whitening strips. But because I had braces for a few years I already knew my gum/teeth sensitivity level, which aren't to sensitive. So when deciding to try Smile Brilliant I wasn't concerned about that, I was just looking for a quick, easy and affordable system. They delivered!

I have completed a round of whitening, and am totally in love! Now, I do want to try another round because I would like them just a tad whiter...but I have to say the unedited before and after shots really shows the whitening magic!



How I used the system

Each Smile Brilliant kit comes with the materials to make your custom whitening trays at home. The kit includes catalyst and base pastes, as well as impression trays (one for the top and one for the bottom teeth).

To make the impressions you mold the clay together, press in trays, and then press the trays one at a time into your teeth for 2 minutes to form the mold. After completely drying, just place the molds in the blue prepaid envelope that comes in your kit and drop them in the mail! So easy! I received my custom trays in my mailbox about 5 days later. Now time to start whitening!




I used the Smile Brilliant system for a little over a month. After the second use my gums started to get a little irritated, so I skipped a day of whitening and then resumed two days later only leaving the whitening on my teeth for half the time. My gums were totally fine after this and I was able to resume leaving them on 2 hours at night.

I love this system because you are able to immediately see results! Although I didn't wake up with completely white teeth, I was able to see subtle changes after every use. A total winner I think! I also want to mention that I was really impressed and grateful for the thorough step by step instructions they provided in the kit.


How it works
The first thing you absolutely must do is brush your teeth with only water to ensure the whitening goes on evenly. Then, line your trays with the whitening gel and insert onto your teeth. Leave the trays on for your desired amount of time. It's recommended for at least an hour. I typically left my trays in for 60-90 minutes. Follow your allotted whitening time by brushing your teeth like you normally would.

The final step of the process is to apply the desensitizing gel to the whitening trays and wear them for 15-20 minutes. I usually left them on for 20 minutes because I usually got distracted with whatever I was watching on Netflix. ;)

My kit came with enough whitening and desensitizing gels for 18 applications. I didn't complete this cycle back to back days...there were days that I skipped, but even with that being said, I was still able to achieve a whiteness that I am confident with.


My final thoughts
Okay, so honestly it was difficult for me to add the whitening system into my night routine, because I usually with have tea or a late night snack. So in order for me to still go to bed at a decent time, I would have to start the whitening process a couple hours before which meant I couldn't have my tea or snack. Really that's all just a minor issue to what the end result turned out to be. I would recommend once you get the kit and receive your impressions back, to whiten every night for a good 3-4 weeks. That way you won't have to do another round and you can get back to your normal night routine. After that you can just maintain the whitening by using it one or two nights a month.
Okay so final, final thoughts. I am so glad that I discovered Smile Brilliant! The system couldn't be easier and the results couldn't be better. I would recommend this to anyone looking to whiten up your smile while doing it from the comfort of your pj's without breaking the bank.
