I wanted to get my teeth whitened for such a long time now and today I have a really exciting review for your guys all about a Teeth Whitening Kit that I got to try out over the past few days from Smile Brilliant. Smile Brilliant is a national dental lab designed to help their customers receive professional strength teeth whitening without spending a fortune at the dentist. Their lab was specifically created to curb the high cost of cosmetic teeth whitening that is charged at dental offices around the world. So, when they contacted me about trying out their Teeth Whitening Kit I was very excited because it is something I have never tried in this form before and I have tried so many different methods over the years to keep my smile as white as possible.
I used teeth whitening strips in the past and I even got them whitened at the dentist once but I never seemed to get the results that I wanted and my teeth ended up being more sensitive than they were before. What I like most about the Smile Brilliant Kit is that they have a Desensitizing Gel to help elevate pain for people who have sensitive teeth and the best part – you can do it in the comfort of your own house.
What’s in the kit?
The kit comes with 3 Teeth Whitening & Desensitizing Gels, 3 Base and Catalyst Pastes, two trays that you insert in your mouth once you’ve mixed up the pastes to take the impressions of your teeth and it also provides you with instructions to make the whole process very simple and easy to follow. You also get an envelope and a return card in your kit so you can mail your impressions back to Smile Brilliant and they will then start creating your custom fitted trays.
To prepare my teeth I had to brush and floss them because clean teeth are very important to get the perfect impressions. I then mixed the Catalyst & Base Paste together by continuously folding them in half until it was a solid blue colour. You shouldn’t take too long for that process because the paste will begin hardening. Once I’ve mixed the paste I spread it evenly in the trays and took my impressions. The whole process was so easy and all I had to do then was mailing my impressions back to Smile brilliant so they could start creating my custom fitted trays.
When I first used my trays I was actually quite nervous because I wasn’t sure what to expect sensitivity wise. I’ve used teeth whitening strips before and they made my teeth very sensitive and hurt while they were on my teeth, but I was pleasantly surprised with this gel. I applied a thin layer of gel to the front inner surface of the tray that comes in contact with the front of my teeth. I then dried my teeth and inserted them using a forward pressing motion to avoid dragging the gel down. The gel then spread evenly over my teeth and I left them on for one hour. The duration can range from 15 minutes to as long as 3 hours but I decided to remove them after an hour. My teeth and gums didn’t hurt at all and I haven’t noticed any sensitivity. I then applied a thin layer of the Desensitizing Gel to the trays and left them on for 20 minutes. After only one application I noticed such a big difference, my teeth were so much whiter and brighter looking. I then repeated this process for 7 days in a row. Throughout the whole teeth whitening process I used the Elmex Sensitive Tooth Paste to brush my teeth morning and evening and I left the Desensitizing Gel on for 20 minutes after every session. I haven’t noticed any sensitivity whatsoever and I’m so so happy with the results. Smile Brilliant have shared this amazing video which shows you exactly how the entire process works and you can also check out some of the reviews on their site. I guess you now want to see some before and after photos?
How much your teeth will whiten depends on how stained your teeth are when you start the process. The whitening gel simply removes stains and doesn’t alter your natural tooth colour. My teeth were slightly stained and the gel definitely made my teeth a lot whiter and brighter in general. Both photos were taken in natural lighting so you can really see the difference.
