Overall wellness to me as a Mom means taking time out of my hectic schedule to help take care of myself physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. This also includes pampering myself from time-to-time and of course, taking care of my appearance as well. Many Mom’s feel selfish when they want alone time and even worse, many feel guilty about spending money on themselves. I’m here to tell you that It’s o.k.! You see, for many of us such as myself, our sanity depends on it. As much as I love my family, I find myself needing “me” time often and even feel that it helps me be a better Mom and Wife. Of course, I am very lucky to have an understanding Husband who let’s me have some alone time especially after a stressful week or two.
My pamper sessions include things like getting my nails done, shopping, curling up with a good book, exercising, meditating, getting my makeup done and anything else that makes me feel good about myself. One of these things includes whitening my teeth. I wanted a dentist-quality teeth whitening system that wouldn’t break the bank–and I wanted to do it in the privacy of my own home.
I was excited to discover Smile Brilliant, a convenient and safe way to whiten your teeth at home. What I liked the most about this brand is that you are able to get custom fitted teeth whitening trays which are designed to adhere perfectly to teeth allowing the whitening agent to lift years worth of stains off of the surface of the teeth.
What’s included in the Smile Brilliant kit:
The Smile Brilliant package comes to you packaged in a box containing the “Tray Creation Kit”. Included in the kit are:
- 3 catalyst pastes
- 3 base pastes
- 2 impression trays
- 4 syringes of desensitizing gel
- 4 syringes of whitening gel
- Instruction guides (tray creation, desensitizing gel usage, whitening gel usage)
- Return card and postage-paid envelope
For the putty, the Base paste must be mixed with the catalyst paste and then needs to get which then gets inserted into the plastic tray. two sets are provided for both top and bottom and an extra set is included in case one makes a mistake with the mixing process. mixing the 2 together allows for the mixture to harden–which then gets sent back to the Smile Brilliant lab where custom trays are created based on the mold collected.
Press the blue paste into the blue trays and press down with teeth to form impressions. Wait for product to dry up and harden and then rinse off and place in envelope provided. The teeth impressions can then be sent to the lab and in just a few short days, your customized trays will arrive!
It’s advised to whiten the teeth for 45 mins to 3 hours depending on sensitivity. I began with shorter applications of 30 mins to 45 mins before working my way up to 1-2 hours.
- Begin by Twisting and removing cap from the syringe
- Apply thin steady ribbon of gel along front/outer surface of trays
- Make sure teeth are dried properly and insert the trays using a forward pressing motion
- After session, remove and clean trays and brush teeth with toothpaste as normal
For people with sensitive teeth, It’s advised to use the sensitivity gel right after a whitening session to minimize tooth sensitivity. the application is similar to the whitenining gel but they only need to be applied to the teeth for 15-20 minutes.
My final thoughts and results
Overall, I was very pleased with the results I got from using Smile Brilliant! I loved that I could whiten my teeth safely at my own pace and in the privacy of my own home. Although it can be a bit time consuming, It’s important to set aside at least an hour or two before bed to go through the whitening process. **Remember not add too much product as it can cause some gum irritation.
- Quick results
- Minimal sensitivity
- Fit nicely on teeth and do not slip off
- Can cause some minor gum irritation if too much product is used
