Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Review Update

Quite a while ago I promised to do a teeth whitening review for you and time quickly got away from me.  Here I am, today, prepared to give you the ins and outs of the teeth whitening system called Smile Brilliant.

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Review

While Smile Brilliant gave me this system to review and I found making the Smile Brilliant molds to be fun I was hesitant to start the whitening process.  Why?  Because I’m frugal. 😉  Don’t get me wrong the Smile Brilliant gel isn’t that expensive…it’s quite affordable actually, but the directions say that you can use the trays for 20 minutes to 3 hours.  Being the frugal, money-stretching mama that I am I wanted the best bang for my buck which is of course 3 hours.  However, finding a 3 hour gap in my day without kids there and without me eating was tough.  Impossible even.  Days came and went as my trays just sat there begging to be used that is until, one Sunday when nap times aligned and the angels sang.

My husband and I were eager to give these a try.  We read the directions {yes, we are both rule followers} and we were off.

Smile Brilliant Desensitizing Gel

After a quick brushing and flossing we applied a small line of desensitizing gel around the front of each tray.  Put in place and wait 20 minutes.  Easy peasy!

Wearing Smile Brilliant Trays

I couldn’t believe how well they fit.  I know they were made for my mouth and all but they were actually comfortable!  My husband isn’t in pain, he just hates having his picture taken. {Sorry, Honey!}

Can you tell we are wearing them in our pictures?  I could hardly notice them on my husband.  Which brings me to my favorite part of the review!!

My daughter woke up a little early from her nap while I was still wearing my trays.  I thought she would notice them right away because she is hyper-observant but she didn’t.  It was over a half an hour before she noticed them and even then she wasn’t bothered by them.  With whitening trays and strips I’ve tried in the past I’ve always had to use them without kids around because kids ALWAYS talk and ask questions {Other kids do this too, right?  It’s not just mine?}.  With these in I was able to carry on conversations without a problem.

This is huge, folks!  

You could wear these to run errands, to the office, to a play date, anywhere!  Do it for 20 minutes or 3 hours and your life will go on and you’ll be on your way to a brighter and whiter smile!

Teeth Whitening Gel

Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself.  Let’s go back to our process.  Next, came the whitening gel.

I was a little caught off guard from the sensitivity I felt when I put the teeth whitening gel on {I mean, I just used the desensitizing gel, right?} but it only felt sensitive for maybe a minute and then it subsided never to return.  My husband said he felt the same sensitivity but wouldn’t complain about it because he has never been able to use a teeth whitener without his teeth hurting for days.  All he experienced was that brief sensitivity and then nothing.  I’m very impressed by that.

Smile Brilliant Smile

Do my teeth look whiter?  I think they are noticeably whiter after just one use!  I only used the trays for about two and a half hours before I gave in and had to eat a snack.  I can’t stress enough how simple this process was.  I regret not trying it sooner and I hope that if you’re looking for something to whiten your teeth that you’ll give it a try.  In my opinion, as far as at home teeth whitening goes, Smile Brilliant is the best of the best!  Now if only they could make an at home teeth straightening kit.  A girl can dream!

  1. Robin Masshole mommy says

    I have actually used this before and I was very happy with the results, too.

  2. Your teeth look great and this seems like a super simple product to use! I have really sensitive gums and wonder if it would work for me?

  3. This sounds great. I love that the trays are molded to my teeth. No more goo in my mouth!

  4. You know what? This is genius. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten whitening goo all in my mouth. That won’t be a problem with molded trays!

  5. Catherine S says

    This sounds like a great whitening kit. I have been thinking about trying one.

  6. Always been to nervous to try these, but it looks great! thanks!

  7. I love that this system involves custom fit trays rather than generic strips. Your smiles look amazing!

  8. I’ve seen nothing but good reviews for their products. Your teeth do look good. Thank you for the full review.

  9. Wow that really does a great job, such nice smiles you both have. I can’t even see the tray you have on.

  10. I’ve heard great stuff about Smile Brilliant! Your smile is gorgeous!

  11. They look great. I wondered if they would give teeth brighter white spots in certain areas. Doesn’t seem to be the case. Love that they can barely be seen.

  12. I love Smile Brilliant! Their products work great!

  13. This seems like a really great option for whitening. I have sensitive teeth but would love to try a whitener.

  14. Danielle says

    Your teeth look great, and yes, being able to use it anywhere (and without giving nightmares to kids) is definitely something to sway me! The tray reminds me of my old retainer from after having braces – barely noticeable and very comfortable!

  15. The tray looks like a good product. Often some of those trays are so uncomfortable and a bit painful. Looks like you had good results and a good experience.

  16. Your teeth look amazing! I’m really impressed with the results and your review of Smile Brilliant. I would love to try them out!

  17. I have some tooth sensitivity, so I’m glad you mentioned about the sensitivity. I’ll definitely give this a try!

  18. I have seen some amazing results from Smile Brilliant from other bloggers. It seems to be about the only product that does give noticeable results without going to the dentist!

  19. Your teeth look great! So white, love it!

  20. Ann Bacciaglia says

    This would be perfect for my daughter. She has been wanting to whiten her teeth ever since she had her braces off.

  21. ha, that’s funny that it took her awhile to notice them. It is unrelated but reminded me of my youngest being scared of his sister when he woke up from a nap at Disney and she’d had her face transformed with paint, lolol

  22. I want to whiten my teeth. Looks like it works well.

  23. Megan @ C'mon Get Crafty says

    Your smiles are beautiful! Looks like a winning product!

  24. Your teeth look awesome! I would love to try this product out so I can have that Hollywood white teeth smile!

  25. As a big coffee drinker I really should try something like this. Yours came out great!

  26. I tried whitening trays once and my teeth hurt for days. I’d be interested to try these, especially since they don’t seem to hurt like other options.

  27. Definitely think your teeth look whiter! Love that you are able to wear the trays without any problem and that you can still go about your daily routine with them.
