Smile Brilliant Review PLUS A GIVEAWAY10:03 PM
Selfies are all the rage these days. When you pose for a picture, do you smile with your teeth showing or with your mouth closed? I personally use Snapchat so much that it really depends on the filter I’m using. But, for most pictures I generally like to go for a toothy grin, as a closed-mouth smile can sometimes come off looking a bit forced and constipated. Which is your go-to way of smiling?
Do you like showing your teeth when you smile in photos, or in general? Because...
It’s getting to be that time of year again when we relax a bit on our healthy diet rules, and indulge more on rich, warm foods. Coffee, hot chocolate, chai lattes, apple pie, maple pecan bars, pumpkin pie... I don’t know, I’m starting to ramble on food now. Point is, all this food will scare your dentist the next time you go in for a cleaning. Because, to be honest, how often do you guys actually brush your teeth, or even just drink some clear water after eating these teeth-staining goodies?
(Okay, I do, but it’s because I can get pretty anal about preventing cavities and tooth decay and yellowing. But anyways…)
Would you guys like to know how to get whiter teeth? I hope the answer is yes, otherwise I will assume you like a set resembling candy corn rather than pearly whites.
Today, I wanted to share with you all a way to rid your teeth of those disgusting stains and discolorations through a home teeth whitening kit by Smile Brilliant. This will help remove stains from your teeth using a professional teeth whitening kit! But you don’t have to actually get dressed and go to the dentist. You can do it at home in your pajamas with Netflix running in the background. Such a great option for lazy hermits like me.
Smile Brilliant kindly offered to send me a kit to try out and review! I actually had one of my good friends try it out because she can be pretty brutally honest when it comes to her likes and dislikes. It was quite fun doing this little project with my friend because it gave her a second opinion on whether or not this product actually made a difference. It can be hard to tell if your teeth actually got whiter if you are staring at your teeth every day. Unlike other at home teeth-whitening products, you can get these custom-fit trays for your teeth with the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening kit. My friend has complained in the past about her crooked teeth, as she still hasn’t gotten braces yet. So having her try out this product definitely gave me a better idea of how this product was.
Okay, as all beauty gurus on YouTube say “Let’s get into it!”
Ugh that was so cringe-worthy. Forget I said that.

Anyways, after making the dental impressions, she sent it back to the company. They then made teeth whitening trays that fit her mouth perfectly, using the dental impressions to make them custom-fit. As I said before, her teeth aren’t perfectly positioned and straight, BUT with the whole dental impressions thing, this ensured that her teeth whitening trays actually fit her teeth!
The teeth whitening kit we got had four syringes each of whitening and desensitizing gel. What’s great about this kit is that it also works for people with sensitive teeth. The desensitizing gel actually came in really handy for most of the teeth whitening process. With every new product you try, there’s a chance that you will experience sensitivity. Different products use different ingredients, so it’s really great that Smile Brilliant took into account that a lot of people have sensitive teeth.
To use this kit, all she had to do was apply the desensitizing gel before using the whitening stuff. This helps prep her teeth for the whole thing. The directions that came with the kit were very clear and easy to follow. It wasn’t too difficult for her to do the whole process.
When it comes to using the whitening product, you apply it on the tray, and you keep it in for 1-3 hours. 3 hours. It sounds crazy but that’s actually how long you can leave it in for. Then you follow that up with the desensitizing gel for about a half hour.
The kit came with enough for about 18-24 treatments. It comes with that much so that you can do it consistently for a couple weeks. With 6 syringes it has enough for 18-24 because each syringe is good for about 3-4 sessions of whitening. It’s totally fine to skip a few days here and there, but the results will take a bit longer! With this teeth whitening kit, the treatments create a gradual whitening so that you don't go blinding people with your unnaturally white teeth. It ends up with a more subtle transition to whiter teeth, that ends up looking more natural and flattering too.
That’s pretty much it! It’s super easy and there are actual noticeable results.
My friend did the treatments for an hour at a time because it can be a bit time consuming. Up to three hours of your mouth being occupied. But even with only one hour sessions, her teeth looked really different from before!

“It does work, and I was very impressed with the high quality of the molding of the teeth. It fit really well and was comfortable. The syringe for whitening was easy to control to get a steady string of whitening on the mold, but the desensitizing one was harder to control because it was more liquidy and it was harder to make a steady ribbon. I never had sensitivity problems before. I have tried teeth whitening a couple years ago, but gave up on it. Compared to it without the desensitizing gel, it was sensitive but not as severe. I’m grateful for them to give me more desensitizing gel for my sensitivity problems that went away after using more and not flossing before. I did not floss before, which helped a lot to prevent sensitivity, even though the instructions said to. So some sensitivity does happen but it will go away. The results were natural whitening, and not fake looking. If I had put the time into it to do it properly up to three hours, it could potentially have been even whiter. I would recommend this to people with the money to buy it and with the time to do it for that long. One hour felt like a long time because I had schoolwork to do, and I also get thirsty easily and I couldn’t drink water. But I like how the treatments are longer than other ones I’ve done, which were 5-10 minutes. But it is very time consuming, so I definitely recommend to people with the time and money to do it.”
Check out the photos to compare the results! She even asked her mom if she saw a difference, and her mom agreed that her teeth did look whiter.
|Final results! Ignore the awkward and weird face here. My friend thought this would help get a better view of her teeth. Like at the dentist.|
|After ALL treatments!!|
