One of the first things people always notice about you is your smile. I love having a clean bright smile and the confidence behind it. I've tried other whitening strips in the past and was always happy with their results, but I wanted to try something a bit more professional without having to sit in a dentists chair and pay the dentist fee. Enter Smile Brilliant. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy their professional home whitening process was, especially with the results. My husband also offered to try their product and could definitely see a result with his use.
For starters, Smile Brilliant sends impression material (the blue and white putty) to use for creating the trays. After mixing the blue and white putty together, next add the putty into the two blue trays. Bite down for about 2 minutes to create the impression. Leave it dry overnight and then package it up in the pre-paid envelope and send the material back to Smile Brilliant. Side note, I actually used to work for a dental supply company and was fairly familiar with the material, but I had never used it myself so this was fun for me haha. In 1-2 weeks, a custom top and bottom tray will be sent back to you to get started on your teeth whitening experience. There is a teeth whitening gel (green tube) and a desensitizing gel (purple tube) to be used afterwards. I used my whitening gel every night for about 3 weeks. I would leave the trays in for an hour and then use the desensitizing gel for 10-15 minutes after. Justin used his every other night for 1 month. He would leave his in for 1/2 hour and then 10-15 minutes of the desensitizing gel after. The whitening gel actually opens up the pores of the teeth, which can leave the teeth pretty sensitive so its important to use the desensitizing gel. Neither of us had any trouble with sensitivity while using the product.
As you can see in the before and after photos, I think Justin had the biggest transformation so to say. I can definitely see the difference. My teeth were pretty white to begin with and I can notice a slight whiter appearance to them. I really loved the custom trays and how perfectly they fit. One thing I hated about whitening strips is how they would fall off sometimes. With the custom trays, that never happens and you know the gel is being evenly distributed to each tooth.
