I wear braces. Metal. Braces. First go round, I got them just before I found out I was pregnant with the twins. I had a slight overbite as a result of decades of biting my nails. Or at least that's the story I tell myself. Okay, I admit it, it was vanity, pure vanity.
After 22 months of metal braces, I was so excited to try Smile Brilliant because my braces were coming off and besides flossing my teeth sans floss threader, I couldn't wait to have my teeth whitened. Solely because I wore braces for so long. Or at least that's the story I tell myself. Okay, I admit it, it was vanity, pure vanity. I was all gung ho about getting my braces off but my orthodontist said "Nope, not so fast" and it'll be 2 more months. L
No teeth whitening for me.
Fortunately, Hubby stepped up to the plate and agreed to sample Smile Brilliant. He does a lot of public speaking on his job and he has his teeth whitened at his dentist office once or twice a year to keep his pearly whites, pearly white. He's tried whitening strips in the past and applicator gel brushes and wasn't happy with the quality of the whitening level. He's been using the same whitening system for about 3 years now so convincing him was a task, but he was up to the challenge.
Smile Brilliant is a rather unique teeth whitening system. It comes with everything you need to create custom fitted trays.
- Brush and floss your teeth
- Create impressions of your teeth using the special molding compounds (base paste and catalyst paste) and impression tray
- Make upper and lower impressions
- Mail the impressions to Smile Brilliant
- Wait a few days to receive your custom plastic inserts
Once you receive your inserts you use the Desensitizing Gel and Teeth Whitening Gel syringes according to directions. If you've ever tried OTC (over the counter) tooth whitening products, you know most of them require you to leave the product on your teeth for 30 minutes to an hour for maximum effect. Smile Brilliant requires a little bit longer, but that's because of the Desensitizing Gel which you apply and leave on for about 20 minutes to an hour before using the Teeth Whitening Gel.
Check out this video showing how the trays are made.
Our Thoughts: It's been 3 weeks and I'm glad to report Hubby has noticed some whitening and is pleased with the results and I cannot wait to get my braces off so I can order a Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening Kit of my very own.
