My teeth and I have gone through a lot together over the years. I’ve had around 8 pulled (give or take a couple), and I regularly visited the orthodontist between 3rd grade and my senior year of high school. Yeah, 9 years of metal in my teeth. Kind of ridiculous, isn’t it? Anyway, after having metal retainers for 5 years and then another 4 years of braces, I was finally happy with the way my teeth looked. The only thing I was concerned about was the slight discoloration that comes after years of braces (and coffee addiction). So I went looking for ways to get whiter teeth without breaking the bank.
I initially went the route that most everyone goes and bought some white strips. Let me just say that I did not have a comfortable experience with these. I have pretty sensitive teeth, and the bleach in the whitening strips caused more pain than good, so I stopped using them after a couple applications.
I don’t think there’s ever a time where people aren’t looking for whiter teeth, so when the lovely people at Smile Brilliant contacted me to try out their whitening kit, I was pretty excited. It’s a much more personalized experience than the whitening treatments you can just get at the store, which is pretty important to me. I mean, I spent 9 years getting the teeth I want – I think I should have a good whitening treatment too! Anyway, I was even more excited to find out that this whitening kit came with desensitizing gel. At last I would be able to whiten my teeth without any pain!
Y’all, you need some Smile Brilliant in your life. Not only do they send you custom trays after you send them your molds, but even if your teeth are sensitive, you might not even NEED the desensitizing gel! Even though the whitening strips from the store caused my teeth a lot of pain, the formula from Smile Brilliant did not!
Okay, so you might be thinking to yourself: Enough about how awesome it is, how does it actually work?
First things first, you send them impressions of your teeth from the molds they send you. This part is kinda gross if you’re not used to it, but I was no stranger to getting molds of my teeth done #OrthoPatientProbs.
Once they receive your molds, they’ll create clear plastic trays for you to apply a thin line of whitening solution to. Put in your trays and wear them anywhere between 45 minutes to 3 hours, but I always do a solid hour just because it’s easy to keep track of.
After you’re done with your whitening treatment, rinse out your trays and brush your teeth. It’s suggested you whiten your teeth at least a few hours before you eat anything. I did mine right before bed so I didn’t have the temptation to eat anything afterwards. If you feel like it, you can now do a treatment with the desensitizing gel, but I didn’t feel like I needed to.

The results of using Smile Brilliant to get whiter teeth basically speak for themselves. Just look at how much whiter my teeth got after using them for a couple weeks!
