Easy At Home Whitening for Coffee Lovers & Giveaway!












Happy Friday!! Do you notice anything different lately? Today I am excited to share my current secret weapon to pearly white teeth, drum roll....


Smile Brilliant! You're never fully dressed without a smile- it's your most important accessory! Smiling is contagious! Anyone that knows me knows, I am a huge smile and teeth person. I think a great smile says a lot about a person. I think it is an absolute must to take care of your smile. This at-home teeth whitening kit provides professional teeth whitening, at a fraction of the cost, to keep your smile bright and beautiful! Keep on reading to see the process and my personal experience.

 

This kit is the T3 Sensitive System for light stains. It includes 3 whitening syringes, 3 desensitizing syringes, and everything you need to create the molds that Smile Brilliant will use to create your custom teeth whitening trays. It also includes instructions for every part of the process.

In order to get your custom teeth whitening trays, you need to mix one of the catalyst pastes and one of the base pastes to create the final putty you put into these trays. You then need to place the putty or molds in to the mouth guards/trays, after you spread it out evenly on the tray, you press one tray evenly up to your upper teeth, hold it there for two and half minutes, remove it, and then repeat with the other tray to your lower teeth. Be sure to only mix one mold at a time. After both are made, you let them sit for 30 minutes, rinse them, let them dry completely, and then ship them back to Smile Brilliant so they can make your final custom trays! Smile Brilliant gives you the information card with a padded envelop and paid shipping to send your molds back.

Say hello to your final custom teeth whitening trays! They perfectly fit your teeth so they whiten every nook and cranny evenly. You won't have to worry about your strips sliding around on your teeth. These are custom for you!!


Now that you have your custom trays, it's time to whiten! Smile Brilliant says there are about 3 applications per syringe, but I've had about a week per syringe.  I use it sparingly and just enough so that it covers my teeth, but not too much where it gets onto my gums. I naturally have sensitive teeth, so I typically take it very slow when I whiten my teeth, I won't whiten every day. My teeth with out treatments are sensitive to ice, hence why- anyone that knows me knows I ask for light ice with everything I order. (insert eye rolls)


After brushing your teeth with just water on your toothbrush, no toothpaste, you then put a thin line of the whitening gel inside your trays along the front, dry your teeth, and put them on. Then set your timer for however long you want to whiten, Smile Brilliant recommends between 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on your sensitivity, and go on with your day. (the first treatment I used the whitening sparingly but, I fell asleep with them in, and when I woke up my teeth were super sensitive) 

Now the best time for me to whiten my teeth is when I am walking the dogs, while I am writing my blog post. These are the two best times for me to whiten. I tend to snack during the day, and drink coffee all day long so I whiten when I stop drinking my coffee and when I have finished my snacking. Right before bed and right after dinner is the best, if I don't fall asleep with them in.

After the time is up, you rinse your mouth and the trays, brush your teeth, this time with toothpaste, dry your trays, and put the desensitizing gel into them now. You dry your teeth again, which is to help the product really grab onto your teeth to work its best, and put on the trays. The desensitizing treatment only has to be worn for 15 to 20 minutes. 
My whitening routine:

When I whitened, I would do it before bed so I could go hours before eating or drinking anything again that could restain my teeth. I also started off whitening accidentally over night (I fell asleep with my trays in) What I found to work best for me is to whiten while walking the dogs on my days off or while I am blogging, its a way to keep me from sipping coffee all day long. I have had to cut back on coffee intake while whitening, since I can't drink coffee after I have just whitened. I typically will only whiten for 45 minutes, and then I use the desensitizing gel for 15mins. A solid hour before bed. 

After 6 days of whitening, these are my results!
As you can see, my teeth weren't too badly stained originally. I drink coffee every single day and all day, and whiten with whitening toothpaste, so they were only slightly yellow but definitely dull. After using this whitening kit, they're bright, pearly white again!
Now for the pros and cons (not really cons)

Results! My teeth are a beautiful, natural white. I prefer my smile to be bright. I'm sure they could be even whiter though if I continued using these treatments, which I plan to continue.

Price.. The price for my kit is $139. The price may seem steep, compared to drugstore teeth whitening kits, which is why I think this may rack up as a con. Honestly, the price is worth it to me, because when you compare the beautiful results, the amount of treatments you can get, the custom trays, and the sensitivity gel to the other whitening kits, and the price you would pay in a dentist visit for custom whitening, it's definitely affordable teeth whitening! So while it may seem steep at first, it's a great deal in the end.

Sensitivity! Well, that is a given with me! I always have sensitive teeth. Even when I am not whitening, I actually took my time with this kit, I didn't whiten everyday. I whitened every other day, and the desensitizing gel is going to be your best friend. 

Now search no more for a home teeth whitening kit!! I recommend Smile Brilliant. The results beat all the past whitening kits I've tried, making this one honestly the best at home whitening kit, in my humble opinion. This is way more affordable, and I loved being able to make my molds at home and really go through the whole process.
