Professionally Whiten Your Teeth At Home With Smile Brilliant + Giveaway

Did you ever wish your teeth were whiter? Have you been frustrated a lot with different teeth whitening brands that don’t deliver? Well, you’re not alone. I’ve always wished my teeth were whiter but I didn’t want to spend A LOT to have them professionally whitened.

I drink soda a lot. In fact, in 5 Little Things I Am Thankful For – A Thanksgiving Post, I’ve told everyone about my love of soda. As a result, my teeth have been stained with soda for years; and no amount of brushing and cleaning could make them whiter.

I’ve tried several different products from whitening toothpaste, whitening toothbrush (yes they claim they can whiten too!) to whitening mouthwash but they didn’t deliver. I’ve also tried different brands of whitening strips but my teeth would always end up overly sensitive so I was unable to follow through. Since I would always end up frustrated, I stopped trying to whiten my teeth because I just lost hope that they would be whiter again.

But today, I’ve partnered with Smile Brilliant to bring you a professional teeth whitening system that you can do in the comfort of your own home without breaking the bank.

While I wish these commissions were enough to let me stay at home with my kids, they’re really for paying the fees to keep this site up and running. Thank you for your continued support!

About Smile Brilliant

Smile Brilliant‘s team is made up of dental professionals with more than 30 years of teeth whitening experience. For decades, their staff created custom-fitted whitening trays for local dentists. After realizing that more than 70% of the cost & time associated with professional teeth whitening revolves around trips to the dentist (office “chair time”), they decided to develop a system that allows our customers to make their own dental impressions. By eliminating a trip to the dentist, they eliminate much of the cost you would otherwise pay. You can read more about them here.

About The Teeth Whitening System

I received the T6 Sensitive System which includes custom-fitted trays and 6 whitening and desensitizing syringes.

The T6 Sensitive System is perfect for average stained teeth. For those with some sensitivity to cold food/drink or those who have been unable to use other whitening products due to teeth “aching”. Drinks coffee, tea, or wine with some regularity. You can read more about that here.

What I really like about Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening system is that it’s not a one-solution-fits-all kind of product. They let you customize your whitening system that is perfect for your needs. You can specify if you have sensitive or non-sensitive teeth and choose from the available systems depending how stained your teeth are (light, medium, or heavy).

The Packaging

My teeth whitening system came in a customized white and blue box with Smile Brilliant’s logo. Nicely packed inside it are the 2 impression trays, 3 sets of impression material (they included 1 extra set just in case I mess it up), 6 professional teeth whitening gel and desensitizing gel, and a 3-way postage.

I actually got my teeth whitening system back in mid-November but because of the holidays and everyone in the family getting sick, I didn’t get to really start using it until after the New Year. And that is why you can see those fall leaves in the pictures.

Before You Whiten Your Teeth

Before I started whitening my teeth, I had to create my dental impressions then sent them back to Smile Brilliant using the prepaid envelope. While they were in their lab, their team crafted an exact model of my teeth, hand-finished my custom-fitted trays; then sent them back to me.

This process was fairly quick. I sent my dental impressions on a Monday; and they received them the next day. Five business days later, they sent me my custom-fitted trays; and I got them 4 days after.

Using The Teeth Whitening System

Before I started using the teeth whitening system, I flossed; then brushed my teeth with water. Then I put some teeth whitening gel in the custom-fitted tray; I used a towel to dry my teeth as much as I could before I placed the tray in my mouth. As soon as I did that, there is a slight tingling sensation that lasted for the entire time the teeth whitening gel is in my mouth. The tingling sensation does lessen its intensity with continued use though.

I started the whitening process slowly by leaving the custom-fitted trays with teeth whitening gel in my mouth for 30 minutes then increased the duration after every 2 days until I can wear them for 1-2 hours at a time. Sometimes I would exceed 2 hours, and on some nights it will just be a little over an hour. This is because I work around my kids’ schedule.

I did the teeth whitening process every night (which is what they recommended) after dinner; and I would wear the custom-fitted tray with teeth whitening gel until after my daughter goes to bed. So it was really dependent on how long before she sleeps before I can proceed with the next step which is applying the desensitizing gel.

Before using the desensitizing gel, I brushed my teeth first with toothpaste. To take advantage of the effectiveness of the desensitizing gel, the custom-fitted trays and my teeth have to be as dry as possible. So I used a towel to dry the custom-fitted trays, then used q-tips to make sure that the little nooks are as dry as possible. I also used a towel to make sure that my teeth are as dry as they could be before I wear the custom-fitted trays with the desensitizing gel. I wore the custom-fitted trays for 15-20 minutes at a time.

My Thoughts On The Teeth Whitening Process

I did notice that the longer I wear the custom-fitted trays with teeth whitening gel, the more my teeth became slightly sensitive the following day. But it wasn’t something that bothered me so I just kept on doing it until I saw my desired result.

I think that it would have been easier and faster for me to do all these steps had they sent 2 sets of custom-fitted tray. That way, I can just easily use the second pair for the desensitizing gel while I let the other pair dry; and I no longer have to spend a few minutes trying to dry the trays before putting them on. But this is coming from a mom who doesn’t get enough time to get everything done. As you probably already know, I love anything that would save me some time. It’s not a big deal though, it’s just something that would have been nice to have.

During the entire whitening process, I was also careful when drinking soda so it doesn’t stain my teeth even more and conflict with what I’m doing. I can still drink soda though, but I had to make sure I am using a straw every time and that it doesn’t touch my teeth.

But, even with all these things, Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening system did deliver what it promised and whitened my teeth. Here are the photos to show you how my teeth looked before and after I used the teeth whitening system. As you can see, my teeth did whiten A LOT after using the teeth whitening system for just 3 weeks.

The Verdict

Although I did think that some things would have made things easier for me during the whitening process, Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening system did a great job in whitening my teeth. And for that, I’m willing to look past through those and I can definitely say that the entire experience was well worth it.

It’s also helpful to note that with all the teeth whitening products that I’ve tried, this is the only product that delivered so I am very ecstatic with my results. I will definitely recommend this teeth whitening system to anyone who’s looking to have whiter teeth.

    That’s a huge difference. It sounds like a fairly easy process. I’m concerned about the teeth sensitivity issue, but I guess that’s one of those things that you have to carefully weigh out the pros and cons. Very helpful review.

    • That is so true! It only made my teeth A LITTLE BIT sensitive but they don’t hurt at all. I’ve tried other brands that would make you scream because it hurts a lot; this one didn’t. I am glad you found this helpful.
