Who else is a Kardashian fan? I know, I may be a minority on this one, but I loooove the Kardashians. Their long gorgeous hair, killer curves and oh let’s not forget their perfectly white teeth. I know, you know, they’ve got some white teeth. I mean, Kris Jenner is a powerhouse of a woman and her teeth would probably blind you. My guess is that’s probably how she lands all of her deals, blinds them with her teeth first.
Now, I don’t have the Kardashian funds to go for a professional $500+ whitening in a dentist’s office, but I may have found the everyday girl’s close second, Smile Brilliant. I have a daily coffee (ok two coffees) habit. I’m fairly lucky my teeth aren’t more stained, but they were still a little yellow and in need of a little TLC. Here is my before and after picture:
I’ve used at home whitening kits in the past, that worked, but the strips would unevenly whiten my teeth because my teeth aren’t perfectly straight. I also experienced some sensitivity on my gums from the strips. The difference with Smile Brilliant is their custom fitted trays. If you’ve ever been to the dentist for a crown or anything that needed a perfect fit to your teeth, you’re familiar with the molds they take of your mouth. Smile Brilliant comes with a kit to make your molds at home and you mail them off to create your custom trays. My trays were back within two weeks and I was ready to get whitening.
My first go around, I was a little careless with applying the whitening gel and keeping the solution off of my gums and ended up with a little sensitivity. I was loving my results, but needed to take a couple weeks off to give my gums a rest. I read up on the issue and realized I wasn’t wiping the solution off of my gums like I was supposed to.
So, I went back to it and applied the solution to the trays properly and ensured that only my teeth were getting the action. Literally, within 4 treatments, my teeth were essentially stain free. I found myself smiling in the mirror more than usual and maybe making silly faces to examine all the teeth in my mouth. ya know, the things you would be embarrassed about if someone saw you doing it.
After the stain removal phase all you have to do is maintenance, so if you see new stains creeping up, apply the whitening gel until they are gone. It’s so easy and I’m thrilled with my results.
– I thought the custom trays were really cool. Once I learned to use them properly they allowed for whitening without the gum sensitivity.
– The process was really easy and the whitening gel had a decent taste (not that you’re trying to eat it).
– The desensitizing gel really helped with any sensitivity from the process.
– It is recommended you avoid staining beverages during the process, which I didn’t abide by fully. Had I listened, my results may have been greater.
– Smile Brilliantonly removes stains from your teeth and restores your natural color, so you shouldn’t go expecting blinding white results from the treatment.
