I’m in the beginning of my career and still adjusting to being a full time adult, working 8-10 hour days in the office. Working in the entertainment industry can be exhausting but I wouldn’t trade it for a thing. I am basically fueled off of coffee now – it has become a necessity to get through the day/week. As much as I love coffee, one thing that I knew I would eventually have to worry about were coffee stains, who doesn’t love that… I knew I wanted to try and start preventing stains before they started but I didn’t know exactly how.
As easy as it would be to go get my teeth whitened professionally, that was just not something that I could afford financially or could dedicate an hour and a half to 2 hours for the procedure time. I knew I could turn to teeth whitening strips, but that was never something that worked for me or that I saw results from. Needless to say, when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to collaborate in a partnership, I was thrilled! It is never too early to start your teeth whitening journey, and I felt like Smile Brilliant truly contacted me at the right moment. I had heard of Smile Brilliant before, through some of my blogger friends and heard many good things about it, but I needed to do my research and see if they fit my lifestyle.
About Smile Brilliant
Here are the things I learned about Smile Brilliant just by looking at their website:
- Smile Brilliant is based in the United States
- They are an At-Home Teeth Whitening kit company
- The Smile Brilliant team is made up of dental professionals with 30+ years of teeth whitening experience
- Their teeth whitening trays are custom and fitted for each individual person – both for your bottom and top teeth
- They are Vegan and Cruelty free
Creating the Impressions
Once I accepted the partnership with Smile Brilliant, I received my at home kit to mold my custom teeth whitening trays – this process was a little difficult for me because I am such an over thinker and somehow ended up doing it wrong my first try. I had to get more of the base and catalyst in order to do my impressions over again. The second time was a lot easier and my impressions were less droopy. Once I sent in my impressions, it took about a week in a half to receive my custom fitted trays.
The whitening part was of course, the part I looked forward to the most and honestly was the easiest part of this whole process. When I had gotten my teeth whitened before at my previous job at skincare studio, I experienced a lot of sensitivity and discomfort, even with the sensitive specific formula. Needless to say, I was a little bit nervous about how my teeth would react to Smile Brilliants formula.
The teeth whitening preparation process was so fast and effortless, once you coated the trays with the whitening gel you just had to put the trays on your teeth and it was smooth sailing from there. The whitening trays were so comfortable and fit my teeth/mouth so well, that I forgot I even had them in my mouth. I noticed a little bit of discomfort after the first time I whitened, but after that initial one, the rest of them were a breeze. I started off with short whitening sessions, just 45 minutes each. Once I got comfortable with whitening, I would leave the trays in for about 2 hours. That may soundlike a long time but when you are able to do other things while whitening, like read or doing stuff around the house, the time goes by so fast!
I loved that I was I was able to whiten on my own time! As I mentioned, I work in the entertainment industry so my schedule is pretty hectic and non traditional. That is probably my favorite thing about whitening with Smile Brilliant – it is convenient and effortless!
The whitening kit came with 4 syringes of the whitening gel and 4 syringes of the desensitizing gel. I was able to get about 5 uses from one syringe of both whitening gel and desensitizing gel for both my top and bottom teeth.
I saw results right away! I was so surprised and impressed by this product and formula. Each time I whitened, the whiter my teeth got, visibly white after each session. That is what made me want to keep continuing whitening because I was excited to see how much whiter my teeth would get after every session. Even though my whitening trial is over with Smile Brilliant, I know I will continue to use the whitening syringes often because I know for a fact I’m going to continue to drink coffee and need to keep trying to prevent those coffee stains.
