Anyone who knows me knows how much I love coffee. One, two, who I am kidding maybe up to 4 cups a day. But with this love of coffee can come with big consequences like yellow stained teeth … eek!

I always wanted to go into a dentist to get them professionally whitened, but that can be expensive! And I never had the patience or discipline to upkeep with at-home whitening stripes. Recently, Smile Brilliant reached out to me, and it changed my smile for the better. I liked that they offer a custom whitening tray to fit my teeth (Because we all know those whitening stripes doesn’t cover those back teeth) and they also offer you desensitizing gel to re-hydrate your teeth to help protect your enamel. I decided to give it a try, and I can honestly say I encourage you to try it. I love it! Check out my full review below.

The process was super simple and depending on how often you use it, you can see results in just a couple sessions. Personally, my teeth and gums are sensitive, so I used it every other day. But some bloggers (you can watch a YouTube video below) use it every day for a week and saw instant results!

 Here are the steps:

  1. Blend the blue and white puddies together until they’re a light blue color and fill the blue mold tray
  2. Insert into your mouth and press against your teeth to make the top and bottom teeth molds (they give you an extra just in case you mess up)
  3. Mail in your molds
  4. Once you receive your clear trays in the mail, fill with the whitening gel and leave it on between 30-45 minutes
  5. Rinse, and use the desensitizing gel for 15 minutes
  6. Smile and repeat!

I did my whitening sessions for about 30 minutes because I could feel the intensity of the gel and knew it was working. It is very easy to use before you go to bed so you won’t forget. I feel like this entire process was more effective than any whitening strip, toothpaste or mouthwash has ever worked, and it’s a fraction of the cost of going to the dentist. I am excited to keep up with this process and continue using Smile Brilliant. It does work! I mean who wouldn’t love to whiten their teeth in the convenience of your own home.
