My smile is one of my favorite features, but my obsession with iced coffee combined with being a busy college student has taken such a toll on my teeth in the last year. I recently discovered my favorite way to whiten my teeth with an awesome brand called, Smile Brilliant. 

Words can’t explain how large of a role a simple, easy-to-use system, has played in giving me so much of my confidence back. Teeth whitening is something I’ve always wanted to try, but with how expensive it can be and so many different teeth whitening solutions in the market, I had no idea where to start. This could not have come at a better time.


So, what is Smile Brilliant? 

Smile Brilliant is an at-home whitening system that uses the method of custom-fitted whitening trays to whiten your teeth. Here’s the catch: this kit costs only $149, whereas the average U.S. dentist charges $500+ for the same treatment. As soon as I heard this, I knew that this kit was going to be my go-to.

As with any product, I always need to be sure that I can trust its source. This product was created by a team of dental hygienists and professionals who have extensive experience in creating custom-fitted whitening trays throughout their careers. (Phew!) Now, let’s talk about the process.

How Does This Work?

One of the factors of the system that I thoroughly enjoy is how simple and easy-to-use it is. First, using the molding material that they provide to you, you create molds of your top and bottom teeth. (The instructions they give you make this process so smooth!)

After you’ve created your molds, you mail them to Smile Brilliant where they will create your own custom teeth-whitening trays. In about a week (or less) they will mail your custom trays right back to you!

Now, onto whitening. First, you just brush your teeth with water (no toothpaste,) and make sure your custom-fitted trays are dry. Take the teeth whitening gel, and put a thin line of gel along the front surface of both trays. Pop in the trays, and whiten for 45 minutes-3 hours. I’d recommend starting with 45 minutes and working your way up as you move forward.

After you’ve finished whitening, you remove/clean the trays with cool water and then brush your teeth with toothpaste as normal. You then go in with the desensitizing gel, apply it to both trays like you did with the whitening gel and wear the trays for 15-20 minutes.

Once time is up, spit out the remaining gel and refrain from consuming any food or beverages for a minimum of 30 minutes. I find that the best time to whiten is before bed because that way you’ll give yourself plenty of space between the whitening and the next time you eat!


My Final Thoughts

Between the price, how easy it is to use and how fast you see results, this kit is pretty amazing. As a college student, our budgets aren’t too extensive yet Smile Brilliant makes teeth whitening affordable and easy for everyone. 

I love that the trays are custom-fitted just for your own teeth and that during the process of whitening, you can multitask and get so many other things done at once. Sensitivity was one of my biggest concerns prior to trying this kit out and I must say, sensitivity is the least of my worries when whitening with SB. This is my latest addition to my night routine and I am loving how it makes me feel!
