Being a former braces wearer, the appearance and overall health of my teeth have always been important to me. Coincidentally, at the time that I was contacted by the lovely sponsors at Smile Brilliant, I was currently in the process of researching teeth whitening options. While I tend to not smile frequently in my blog photos, I am a regular coffee, tea, (and red wine 😉 ) drinker; all beverages that are known for staining teeth. When I agreed to this collaboration and received my kit, I was very impressed by the overall packaging and professionalism behind this product.
The kit came with 3 sets of catalyst and base paste that were to be mixed in order to create the impressions in the trays provided. For me, this was the most nerve racking part as there were time limits on how long it would take to mix the putty before it began to harden. Truth be told, I messed up on the first try and was grateful that an extra set was included for that very reason. After successfully making my impressions and allowing them to set for 30 minutes, I shipped them off and anxiously awaited the arrival of my teeth whitening trays.
Now the fun begins! My trays came in a sleek retainer-like case along with instructions on how to properly apply the whitening and desensitizing gels. The whitening gel had a time limit of 45 minutes- 3 hours of use, however, I decided to leave it on for an hour and a half each session as I was cautious of the possible effects it could have on my enamel. It was suggested that this process is best done before bed and I found that to be quite true as well as being the most convenient option for my schedule. While I didn’t experience much sensitivity (which was a definite plus), I’m sure using the desensitizing gel for 15-20 minutes post whitening helped combat any possible discomfort. I used this product for about two weeks and was pleasantly surprised to notice a slight difference in the color of my teeth. In all fairness, I didn’t really cut out my teeth-staining beverages so I’m positive my results would have been more drastic if I had. Overall, I can honestly say that using this teeth whitening kit was a great experience and I encourage you to try it, especially if you are looking for an efficient product that actually works!
