I’ve always been a little insecure about my teeth. They’re kind of crooked and a little on the yellow side. As much as I wanted to whiten my teeth, I also just don’t have that kind of time. I have two little kids which means going to get them whitened won’t work. Plus, a lot of the easy and cheap whitening kits from the drugstore don’t give the greatest end results. So, when I had the opportunity to try the at home teeth whitening kit I took it, hoping that the results would be great!
Smile Brilliant’s whitening kit is unique because unlike many at home whitening kits you get the kit in the mail then make a mold of your mouth, send those molds in, and once the lab receives them they create trays that fit your teeth.
The kit includes two molds- a top and bottom mold, and then three tubs of catalyst and three tubs of base. You’ll mix the base and catalyst together and fit them into the mold. Then you’ll put that in your mouth and wait for it to harden around your teeth. Once that has set you’ll remove it and send it in. They even include a ready-to-go shipping envelope for you!
After getting your custom fitted trays back from the lab you’ll be able to begin whitening. The whitening kit will include both syringes of desensitizing gel and whitening gel.
Some people have less sensitive teeth and may not need to use the desensitizing gel, or may only need to use it for a few minutes. As for me, I have to use it for at least half an hour. I have really sensitive and weak teeth (which means I also get a lot of cavities), so even when I use a lot of desensitizing gel for a long period of time the whitening gel still causes some sensitivity.
The gel comes in these little syringes which makes it really easy to put into the trays. You can just run a quick strip or put a drop or so into the front part of each tooth mold, then you set it into your mouth and wait. If we’re being honest, it’s not the best tasting, but I don’t think much dental stuff tastes great..ha!
For me, because I have a lot of sensitivity, the results took a while to see. I couldn’t use the whitening gel for longer than 45 minutes to an hour, so I still don’t quite have the results that I’d like, but they are clearly whiter than they were before I used the Smile Brilliant kit which is the whole point! I’m sure after a few more sessions I’ll be exactly where I want.
Overall I think it’s a good product! If you’re weird about your teeth, like me, you may have a harder time using this than someone who has little or no sensitivity, or who doesn’t care as much about the taste of the gels. You may also experience a lot of sensitivity and so it may take longer to see the desired results, but in the end it does whiten your teeth and it’s way more convenient than going to the dentist for professional teeth whitening (because who has that kind of time?!)
