At- Home teeth whitening: Does it work???

 

“Nothing you wear is more important than your smile-” Connie Stevens

One of the first things I notice about someone is their smile! Alright, I look at the eyes and the smile…  the eyes are the window to the soul so they say, but to me the smile is what connects people! And why not make that smile super bright and white?!!! I recently collaborated with Smile Brilliant to get my smile even brighter! Being an orchestra teacher, professional violinist with my own private violin/ viola studio, and a wife- I live a pretty crazy busy life, which makes it challenging to add extra things outside of those events.  So with that being said- anything I can do from the comfort of my own home and knock out the wait and travel time is a YES, in my book! I am also a big fan of coffee and red wine, so it definitely can do some damage to my pearly whites. When I heard about Smile Brilliant, I was a little skeptical at first and wondered if it really worked as well as I had heard, and if it was as easy as I had read about. I decided I had to test this product out for myself and see what all the buzz was about.

The smile brilliant teeth whitening system is sent to you by mail, which is already super convenient.  Inside the box you will receive the Impression paste, Whitening Gel, and the Desensitizing Gel and Instructions ( Thank goodness)!  The first thing you have to do is mix the two pastes together and place them evenly into the trays. Make sure that you do this rather quickly before the mold paste hardens. Once the paste has been placed in the trays, you put the trays in your mouth and hold in place for about two minutes so that the impression is solidified. This process went fairly quickly and the molds turned out great! And if you’re like me and you need step-by- step instructions, no worries- Smile Brilliant has you covered. The instructions for creating the mold, as well as the entire whitening process was very detailed and super easy to follow. I will tell you this was my least favorite part due to my gag reflex, but it only lasted for like 5min or so.

Once you have created your impressions, you send them back in the provided envelope to the Smile Brilliant lab to be finalized so you can receive your own custom-fitted trays. The custom-fitted trays took about a week to be made and to be mailed back. The custom-fitted trays are invisible, comfortable, lightweight, and a perfect fit.  I have used many other whitening products in the past that are super messy and really uncomfortable and really hard to get much accomplished. With the Smile Brilliant custom-fitted trays, I could continue to work on things as I whitened my teeth, which was super appealing to me. Having custom-fitted teeth whitening trays also made it easier to know that the gel would actually stay in place, verses slid around, and that hopefully the gel would whiten the crevices and the inner teeth, as well as the front.

Now the fun part begins- You received your custom-fitted trays and can start whitening!  First brush your teeth with water, then use the whitening syringe to place the whitening gel into the trays and leave the trays in for 45 minutes- 3 hours.  Having never used the whitening gel before and being unsure how my teeth would respond, I chose to only do 45 min the first couple times. I am prone to teeth sensitivity sometimes, and was relived that I never had an issue with teeth sensitivity while using this product!!!  After whitening your teeth for the desired amount, use the desensitizing gel for about 15- 20 minutes. This will also help if you are prone to teeth sensitivity and should help get rid of that sensitivity if you begin to feel any after using the product!
