I think it’s safe to say a large amount of us are insecure of the color of our teeth – mine were never terrible but drinking coffee as religiously as I have been for the last 6+ years hasn’t helped my case. There are definitely stains I could do without. But the sensitivity that came with whitening strips and the expense of professional whitening treatment deterred me from doing anything about it on my own until the last month..
When I was introduced to Smile Brilliant! I didn’t realize how easy it was to whiten my teeth WITHOUT the pain of sensitivity. How? By the customization process! Rather than whitening strips, I got to mold my teeth and receive customized whitening trays that made the application process a breeze. Best part? I started seeing results within a week! Here’s a brief run-down about how it’s done:
In your Smile Brilliant! Kit, you receive two trays, catalyst paste and base paste used to cast the moldings of your teeth – both top and bottom rows. After mixing the two pastes together and applying them to each tray one at a time, you get a mold of both rows you’d normally see at the orthodontist (but far less intimidating of a process to do solo.)
Once the molds harden, you place them in an envelope (in the kit) to be sent back to the experts at Smile Brilliant! where your custom trays are created and sent back to you (don’t worry, detailed instructions are included with each kit)
Once they return, you get a molded dry cast version of the top and bottom rows of your teeth – which is pretty neat and again, similar to the orthodontist – and a case containing your whitening trays.
From there, you apply a small amount of the whitening gel per tray and let it set on your teeth for a minimum of 15 minutes – max 3 hours. I chose to do 15 minutes due to the sensitivity of my teeth and followed the same steps with the desensitizing gel.
I did this process every day for a week at the same time intervals and started seeing results on the third day. By the time I moved onto the next week and finished up using my gels – applying every other evening – my teeth were far whiter than they were before. Like I said, I didn’t realize I needed a whitening until AFTER I saw the difference. It’s amazing what my teeth now look like once the stains were removed.
