Smile Brilliant

Since a nice bright smile can take years off your look, keeping teeth white helps that smile look more youthful. Professional whitening of the teeth at the dentist can cost hundreds of dollars, money you may not want to spend and now you don’t have to either.  Smile Brilliant is an at home teeth whitening product that uses the same products as the dentist does at a fraction of the cost.    Here’s how it works:

Just place an order online for the custom whitening tray package – price starts at $89.95, and a few days later this is what you’ll receive in the mail

Smile Brilliant package

The kit includes everything you need to get whiter, brighter teeth, just like at the dentist. You’ll receive

  • Step-by-step instructions on how to use the custom bleaching trays
  • Bleaching trays for upper and lower teeth
  • The catalyst and base pastes to make the impressions – they even send an extra set in case you mess up
  • Syringes with the bleaching gel – how many you receive depends on how many you order
  • Return mail envelope

It’s super easy to use – first you mix by hand the blue and white catalyst and base pastes (they’re like putty) and put them into the bleaching trays.  Then one at a time, place over your teeth to take the impressions.  The instructions in the booklet and very easy to read and simple to follow along. Once the impressions have been removed and hardened, place them in the return mail envelope and in about 10 days you will receive your custom whitening trays!

Once you get the trays, just use the syringe to place a small amount on each “tooth” in the impression and wear the trays.  I actually was able to wear the trays at work for a few hours and was able to talk just fine and no one seemed to notice I was wearing them.  Because I have somewhat sensitive teeth there was a bit of “stinging” at first, but after a couple of minutes I was just fine.  I was able to wear them for nearly 2 hours without any problems.

Before and after whitening

I do have some staining on my teeth as I unfortunately drink cola. Smile Brilliant got them brighter and helped to lessen the staining after only two times using the trays and solution!  Each time I whitened my teeth I kept the trays and solution in for 1 1/2- 2 hours.  The solution that they use is 22% concentrate of Carbimide Peroxide whitening gel, the same % that is used by dentists.  It’s recommended to keep the trays in for 45 minutes up to 3 hours and optimum results are revealed after 3-5 uses. Overall, I’m very pleased with how simple this is to do at home and the results that were achieved.  I will definitely keep this up for whitening my teeth!
