However, I have always been insecure about my smile. I have a tiny mouth that makes dental work uncomfortable and as I have shared i have slight paralysis on one side. However, over the years I have mastered a smile that I like.
When Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try their at home teeth whitening system, I was hesitant. I do not have a picture perfect smile and truthfully I was a little questionable. Over the years I have tried drugstore brand whitening strips and use whitening toothpaste but feel the results were not that significant. My dentist has suggested veneers but the price tag is way out of my beauty budget. (He keeps asking me when I am going to do them and I keep saying when he lowers his price.)
After using Smile Brilliant, I do not feel I need to consider ever spending that type of money or going through the process.
From start to finish, The Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system is done completely at home.
The initial kit includes materials to create your own molds along with a pre posted envelope. The process of making the molds is simple and much like you observe at the dental office. The instructions are easy to follow and extra is provided in case you need to redo a mold. The molds are kept in their trays to set and mailed. Your own custom molds are then mailed to you within a week’s time.
I was wrong!
The system includes tubes of teeth whitening gel that are placed into the trays. It takes only a small amount of gel for each tray. On my first use, I used a little too much and the gel came over the tray and did rub my gum. After placement, you can go about your day or evening white the whitening system does the work. The molds are comfortable and can be worn anywhere from 45 minutes to three hours at a time. I began wearing for only 45 minutes as I was uncertain how things would go.
After removing the molds, it is suggested to reinsert the molds with the desensitizing gel. This gel assists in making the teeth less sensitive. This process takes about 15 minutes. For me it was important to wear for the 15 minutes as I shortened the time once and my teeth felt it the next day.
During my trial of Smile Brilliant, I had my 6 month cleaning and asked the Smile Brilliant representative if I should reschedule. She shared that my hygienist may find my teeth easier to clean and she was correct. Although I typically have good dental check ups and my teeth are not difficult to clean, my hygienist did take less time removing tarter.
Another thing to note is my teeth felt cleaner during the time I used Smile Brilliant. If you like the feeling your teeth have after being cleaned, you will feel the same after each use.
Smile Brilliant offers several systems that range in price from $139 (light stains) to $159 ( heavy stains). After you purchase the initial system which include the molds, you are able to purchase additional whitening and teeth desensitizing gel.
I am grateful that I pushed past my hesitation and accepted Smile Brilliant’s offer. In fact, I intend to use the system again. They have given me something to smile about and I know they will give you something to smile about too!
