Tried and tested: a coffee addict’s new favorite teeth whitener

Being in our mid-20s, balancing work commitments, friendships, relationships, and family, we often forget how important it is to take care of ourselves. Shannon and I are huge supporters of the self-care movement, taking mental health days when needed, and generally stopping every once in a while to do something good for ourselves. This year, I’m challenging myself to do something to really *treat myself* at least once a month.

Enter Smile Brilliant!

For a long time, I’ve wanted to do something about my smile. I did the braces thing as a kid but my obsession with coffee and wine was wreaking havoc on my pearly whites. I needed a solution that was easy without a HUGE time commitment or required a big payout or forced me to sit awkwardly with white strips in my mouth.

Smile Brilliant was a SUPER simple addition to my life! The concept is simple–custom trays with professional-quality whitening solution that’s basically on-par with going to the dentist without the massive bill (or time commitment!)

Smile Brilliant sends you a kit with everything you need to get started–mold sets to create your whitening trays, whitening solution, desensitizing gel, and super easy to follow instructions with tons of tips! The process could not be easier! Within 2 weeks of sending off my molds, I received my whitening trays and was whitening that night.

Why I Love It:

I’ve always been a little self conscious of my teeth. They aren’t necessarily yellow but they also aren’t that perfect white that I always dreamed of. I’ve tried literally every single OTC whitening strip, toothpaste, mouthwash, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. I’ve always stopped short of having them professionally done simply because I couldn’t afford it. Professional whitening is expensive and between work and school, I never really felt like I had the time or cash to make it happen. Smile Brilliant is completely affordable and SO EASY. The trays mean no more feeling like you have to sit/lay as still as possible so strips don’t fall off. No more sloshing around awful tasting whitening mouthwash. I just pop these suckers in and tackle whatever tasks need to be wrapped before bed.

Soooooo….how are the results?!

Okay, so admittedly it took awhile to see results, but I’ll be the first to admit it was user error. I felt like I needed to ration the whitening gel–in doing so I completely slowed down the whitening process. I still have some whitening left to do but I’m pretty excited! The whitening had a super natural-looking transition and I got the white teeth I wanted!
