Smile Brilliant before and after

Smile Brilliant before and after

Hello lovelies! Today I'm talking all about teeth. Well teeth bleaching to be exact. I've always been self conscious about my teeth, I'm sure a lot of us have been at some point right? We all know that coffee and tea causes stains but what's life without coffee? I've tried drugstore bleach kits, uv lights, teeth whitening pens you name it but as I live in the UK, the percentage of bleach isn't enough to lift tough stains. I spend way to long looking in the mirror picking out all the faults in my smile. I'm also a fan of red lipstick which isn't always the most flattering colour for stained teeth. As a result of this, I rarely show my teeth in photos. Anyone else with me on this one?

Recently I was contacted by *Smile Brilliant asking if I wanted to test out their bleaching kits. They kindly allowed my boyfriend to test out the kit too which means you shall have a début of my boyfriend or should I say his lovely little teeth. For those of you haven't heard of Smile Brilliant, they are a professional teeth whitening company based in the US. They aim to provide professional strength teeth whitening without the $500+ cost of the trays being made at the dentists. Not everyone can afford the cost of dental teeth whitening making whitening at home a lot more appealing. If you have a quick browse online you'll see just how popular Smile Brilliant are. I was anxious about bleaching my teeth to begin with but after watching hours worth of teeth whitening reviews on Youtube I felt a lot more confident about the process. If you'd like to check their testimonials page out for yourself I'll leave a link here.

Packaging and contents:
Firstly, we were each sent a box containing three syringes of teeth whitening gel (22%), 3 syringes of desensitising gel, a small brush, two trays, three catalyst pastes and three base pastes. Instructions and  an envelope were also included. The box looks and feels very professional which is reassuring when putting your faith in a teeth whitening company.

Step 1:
Firstly you remove the putty from one of the base paste containers and one from the catalyst paste containers. It's a good job that they give you three of each as I always make mistakes with these kind of things. You then have to work quickly to fold both of them in on each other until it all becomes blue. You then mould this into the blue trays making sure to smooth the putty across. Once you have done this you put the top tray into your mouth and up to your teeth using a forward pressing motion. You then repeat this for the bottom teeth. I would advise you to make sure the teeth have entered fully into the mould as I messed this up the first time by only getting half of my teeth. I blame my boyfriend for making me laugh throughout the whole process. It was way too funny. You can then carefully remove the moulds once they've set. If you're not happy you can do this again. If you are happy, you leave the moulds to dry and then rinse them with cold water. Once they've fully set, you then send them back to Smile Brilliant using the envelope they provide in the box!

Step2: 
Smile Brilliant sent our teeth back within around ten days. When I say teeth, I mean you actually get a mould of your teeth. I didn't add a picture as it was quite creepy although I did feel very Shakespearian holding a plaster set of teeth. Don't worry, they aren't going on display but I have kept them as a weird souvenir. Along with the teeth we also received a handy black case which contained our trays. One thing I remember about using drugstore trays is that they rarely fit properly and can be quite painful. The ones sent back from Smile Brilliant fitted perfectly. Not only did they fit but they were comfortable too which is important when you have to leave them in for long periods of time.

The Whitening Process:
You start off by applying a thin layer of the whitening gel around the front of your gum shield. You can use the small brush included to spread the gel around if you like. Make sure your teeth are clean and as dry as possible. You then insert your gum shields again using a forward pressing motion. It took us both around two weeks with a few days off between sessions to complete the whitening process. I started by leaving mine in half an hour and went up to an hour and a half a time. I couldn't do any longer as my teeth would become sensitive. My boyfriend on the other hand experienced very little sensitivity and left his in for around two hours each time. After each application you then remove the trays and wash them with cold water. You then apply the desensitising gel to the trays. This stuff is amazing! The gel helps to prevent the teeth from re-staining as they become very porous after bleaching. It also helps to reduce sensitivity and to heal any sore areas that the bleach has caused. You're advised to leave this in for fifteen minutes and then remove and clean again.

The Results:
Ok, so at first I wasn't sure if my teeth were getting whiter but by the end of the second week I definitely noticed the difference. My bottom teeth especially have really brightened up. My boyfriend's teeth have also whitened considerably. He had some nicotine stains from years ago which have completely disappeared. I don't think I really need to say much about the results as the pictures say it all. Me and my boyfriend have only just compared the before and afters and are still in shock from the difference it has made.

I'll definitely be repurchasing the bleach again as £23.17 for three syringes isn't bad at all especially as you don't need to use as much with it being so strong. The kit with the custom made trays costs £79.53 which is a lot cheaper than going to the dentists. If you'd like to have a look for yourself, I'll leave a link here for the trays and kit and a link here for the separate whitening gels.

  3. I've been thinking of getting my teeth whitened for a while now but I didn't want to make it look as white as America's seem to do it which for me is a little too white! But this actually looks and sounds like a really good product and I'll have a look into it. I've always been insecure about my smile and teeth especially. If only we all had perfectly natural teeth eh? hahahttp://www.coffeeatmidnight13.blogspot.co.uk/

  4. Yep, this is an effective remedy for stained teeth.
    I drink tea a lot, and now my teeth are stained, this is what I need!
    I'd like to try it with my boyfriend too, cos we both have problems and self conscious about how our teeth looks like. We'd love to whiten them.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this brand, Sophie!
    Have a great day!

  36. Hi Sophie! I am so terrified of teeth whitning! I have conisder it so many times but I am afraid it will damage them... my teeth are not too yellow, beside few of my side teeths which is probably due to all the espresso's! I am very impressed though with the results!! I will one day give up and just try it so Smile Brilliant Teeth might be a good option !

  47. Thanks Sophie for sharing your wonderful experience on teeth whitening. To get rid of tooth discoloration it is very essential to avoid coffee, tea, red wine and sodas. If you want to consume these beverages, it is better to drink with a straw. People often explore different websites to find a teeth whitening solution that will give effective results and has no side effects. It is really nice to know that you have not experienced any side effect while using this product. There are chances of tooth sensitivity after using over the counter teeth whitening products. Therefore, it is always advisable to visit a qualified cosmetic dentist before trying any teeth whitening solution. Few years back I visited a reputed cosmetic dentist in Rancho Palos Verdes for whitening my deeply stained teeth. He really treated me with care and helped me by removing the yellow stains perfectly. The doctor also guided me on how to maintain a pearly white smile.
