When you have an addiction to iced coffee and relaxing evening tea, maintaining a white smile can be difficult, and not to mention costly. My bright face is in from of the classroom. I knew I needed a custom-fitted teeth whitening kit from Smile Brilliant.
With Smile Brilliant, you are getting a professional, custom whitening treatment in your own home. After placing your order with Smile Brilliant, you’ll receive a kit that includes: Base and Catalyst Paste to make your impressions, along with detailed instructions. You’ll also receive your tooth whitening gels and desensitizing gels in the same kit.
The only slightly tricky part involved in Smile Brilliant’s whitening treatments is making your own impressions, but they give you an extra paste/catalyst mix in case you mess up (and will send you more if you need it). You start by mixing the pastes together and then pressing them into the plastic trays. Just like you would at the dentist, you pop them into the mouth, bite down and hold them there for 2+ minutes until the pastes are firm. Plop them into the included, pre-paid mailer, and within 1-2 weeks, Smile Brillant will ship out your custom-fitted trays. Once they arrive to you in the mail, you can start the whitening process right away.
Once you’ve received your custom impressions in the mail, the whitening process is a breeze. You simply squeeze a small amount of the whitening gel along the front section of your trays, and then pop them in for anywhere from 15 minutes to up to three hours. Once done, rinse and apply the desensitizing gel for around 5-15 minutes to help your teeth re-hydrate and reduce sensitizing.
The custom dental trays I received from Smile Brilliant fit me perfectly. They slip on easily and stay in place without feeling too tight or too loose. Probably the best part is that you don’t have to continuously hold them in or keep your jaw clenched to keep them in place. The trays are soft and malleable, and fairly thin – making them very comfortable to wear, even for several hours. I’ll typically pop them in for about an hour in the evenings before bed.
For each treatment, I left my trays in for 45 minutes and noticed the stains slowly disappearing with each session. You won’t see it right away but it is making a difference By the fourth treatment, those nasty yellow stains from drinking tea and coffee were completely gone, and my teeth were back to their normal color! Here are my before and after photos in just 3 days!
After using Smile Brilliant’s whitening kits, I noticed some definite advantages with their system versus my old favorites –
- Causes less sensitivity issues
- Comes with custom trays that enable the whitening solution/gel to get into all the little grooves around the teeth, PLUS it covers all my teeth, not just the front ones
- Whitening gel stays contained in the trays for the full duration of the treatment (so I wasn’t tasting the gel like I do with the strips)
- Gives you a natural looking smile (it gets rid of all the stains and returns your teeth to their natural color – nothing too bright or unnatural looking)
