A Glimpse of Glam: Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit Review - Andrea Tiffany

Hey everyone!

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.

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit - Andrea Tiffany A Glimpse of Glam
Photo of all the stuff the kit includes
When she first received the kit, she had to create a dental impression of her teeth. It was really easy to do. There’s really no way for you to mess it up. Unless you remove it from your mouth and then crush it with your foot, but why would you?

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.

Before Photo
Because I had my friend do the treatments, I didn’t see her every single day after every treatment. I saw her for the first several and then the last ones. But there were a couple days here and there that I didn’t see. Despite the desensitizing gel, my friend did experience some sensitivity. Because of that, she ended up skipping a few days, and spreading out her sessions a bit to recover first. HOWEVER, that was easily fixed! She ended up using more desensitizing gel per session, and did not floss prior to the sessions. Flossing can sometimes cut your gums and cause open wounds, which makes your gums and teeth more sensitive to the whitening stuff. But, without flossing before it really helped cut down on the sensitivity. Another tip to reduce teeth sensitivity is to line your gums with Vaseline prior to the treatment, but make sure to not get it on your teeth or else those teeth would be covered and not whitened.

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!

Results after 2/3 of treatments (she started taking longer pauses between treatments because of the slight sensitivity experienced. But later on with a few adjustments they went away)
Here’s some feedback from my friend on the overall teeth whitening kit:

“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.” 



I didn’t change anything that she said, only a few grammar bits here and there because I was literally typing it up as she talked. So if there are run-on sentences ignore them. You aren’t an English teacher, and this isn’t a term paper.

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.

  1. Oh yes, her teeth really did whiten after using the kit! Impressive! I have super sensitive teeth that is why I stopped using whitening products. But I might try the vaseline trick. :)

    1. It's really crazy how well it worked! After looking at her photos for so long, I feel like mine just look bad haha I definitely think that the vaseline trick is a good one to use of you experience any sensitivity. Vaseline is a good way to protect your gums and it's another crazy use for this multi-purpose product. Thank you Jenn!

  4. You had me laughing when you said that a smile without showing teeth can look constipated, haha, you're too funny, but that's true! I usually smile with teeth showing :) I've heard so many amazing things about Smile Brilliant and their whitening system really does seem to work great, as proven with your before and after. You had a bright smile before, but it does look brighter after! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  7. I can't believe how well this actually worked and your friends teeth really do look whiter :) I'm not sure I would manage using it for 3 hours every day as that seems like such a long time but it's good to see the results were still good using it for less time :) x

    1. 3 hours is an insanely long time but it really makes a difference. Even just an hour longer than the typical 15 minutes is a big difference because that much longer. I guess beauty requires pain and dedication. Thanks!

  20. This looks great! I've been meaning to try some products out to whiten my teeth, but I'm worried they're just scam and the result won't be good. This one seems legit, but it's a bit pricey. Hope I get to try it someday though! :-)

  26. Such an interesting post as always, my darling! I've always been a little bit on the fence about such treatments... I mean, the results are definitely there, I can't deny it - you can see the difference, and your friends' teeth look absolutely beautiful and so white! Having said that, I've heard a few horror stories about such treatments... My friend tried it once, I think it might have been a different brand, though, but it was still very pricey. And unfortunately, the treatment ended up irritating her gums so bad they would always bleed and then hurt throughout the day! She ended up stopping the treatment because it became so painful... Don't mean to put anyone off of this, I guess it just depends on the person whether this works or not, but personally I'd be a little scared to try it as my teeth and gums are very sensitive. x x x But if it's worked for your friend, then I'm super glad! :) Also, I always try to do a proper smile in selfies... Like you said, sometimes they can come across as a little forced! <3 Thanks for sharing this review darling. I hope you had a lovely weekend! Kisses. xoxo

    1. I agree, sometimes treatments like this seem like a scam, and I do get nervous about trying these out too. But I read a bunch of reviews beforehand and did some research. This worked out really well, and Smile Brilliant has great quality products. Oh wow, I can't believe it hurt so bad that it made her gums bleed!! That's insane :( I'm sorry that happened!! I guess some have really intense chemicals that are too strong. My gums are sensitive too, and I'm glad that it worked for my friend. Plus the desensitizing gel really came in handy. Definitely a great addition. Hahaha I find it so funny looking at these forced photos people take. It's so unnatural it's hilarious. I remember when I had braces I never smiled with my teeth showing, but now that I look back it definitely looks better to smile naturally. I look so weird in those past photos!! Thank you Kay! I hope you had a wonderful weekend too :) Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comment
