You might know by now that I absolutely love red lipstick! One of the problems while wearing red lipstick, especially the bolder colors, is that they might make your teeth look more yellowish than they are. If you are a regular tea (or coffee) drinker like me you will know about stained teeth and there is nothing worse than putting on your favourite red lipstick and discovering that your teeth are so stained that the red makes it look even more awkward…There are many ways to get rid of the stain on your teeth, including home remedies like active charcoal, using whitening stripes, whitening tooth paste,…the list goes long! But the most effective way is probably bleaching your teeth at the dentist, which is a progress which is quite expensive on the downside. Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening is a cheaper option, and the best part: you can make it on your own and at home at any time you want!
Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening company is a US-based dental lab providing custom-fitted teeth whitening trays and the necessary equipment to bleach your teeth at home. All these can be acquired at a much cheaper price than if you make the same procedure at the dentist. Furthermore, the process itself is so easy and straightforward that you do not be afraid of doing it by yourself. I received one of their Teeth Whitening Tray Creation Kits for reviewing purpose and I am more than happy with the result! Keep on reading to see my before and after pictures of my teeth (if anybody feels offended by pictures of teeth you should stop reading at this point :D).
The Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening Kit comes in a neat box containing two trays for your upper and lower dental impressions, base paste and catalyst paste for making your impressions, and 3 syringes of the Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening Gel and Desensitizing Gel each. Moreover, there are step-by-step instructions on how to take your impressions and how to do the bleaching. Envelopes for sending back the impressions in order to receive your custom-fitted trays are included, too. The postage is pre-paid for US-customers, international customers have to pay the postage for re-sending the trays (the other postage is paid, too). Re-sending was not expensive either, I think I paid a couple of euros, but it was not much. The kit also includes a 30-days satisfaction guarantee and 2 years teeth whitening tray replacement warranty. As you can see there are also three containers of each of the two pastes for making the impressions. If your first try is a miss you have still enough paste to re-do the impressions.
Okay, let’s start with the steps you have to go through! First you have to take your impressions in order to receive your custom-fitted trays. Therefore you’ll have to mix the base paste with the catalyst paste until they form an even colored paste. Put this mixed putty into the included trays and press your teeth inside. If you have been wearing braces in the past you will be familiar with this progress from your dentist. After a while you can remove the tray and leave it to continue drying. Now, you can put the trays with your dental impressions into the envelope and send it back to the Smile Brilliant dental lab.
Smile Brilliant will now create bleaching trays upon arrival of your dental impressions. The impressions will be used to create dental models, which are used to model the custom-fitted trays. These clear colored plastic trays can now be used for your at-home-teeth-bleaching. If you already have custom-fitted trays like this you can order the bleaching gel and desensitizing gel only and use your old trays.
The Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening comes with the Professional Teeth Whitening Gel, with a concentration of 22% Carbamide Peroxide. Each Whitening Gel Syringe has a volume of 3 ml. You can use one syringe for around 3 treatments with each upper and lower tray. You can use the product daily for one week for 1-3 hours per session, depending on how sensitive your teeth are. I used them for 1 hour only, because I have sensitive teeth and I made treatments every second day. I didn’t experience any pain or tooth ache during the treatment. After the whitening progress I always used the Smile Brilliant Desensitizing Gel containing 5%Potassium Nitrate and 0.15% Fluoride Ion. You’ll need the same amount per treatment as you did for the Whitening Gel, so the Desensitizing Gel will also have around 3 applications per 3 ml syringe. In contrast to the whitening Gel the desensitizing gel is not rinsed out afterwards.
Below you can see my results after using the Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening Kit for 9 applications. I did the applications every second or third day for one hour because of my sensitive teeth. Although the progress was slower and the treatment time for each session was only one hour you can clearly see a difference between the color of my teeth at the beginning and now. Also keep in mind that I have been drinking tea everyday.
I’m very happy about the results of the Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening and although I was sceptical at first if this treatment will work for me I’m so happy I tried it. The sessions didn’t hurt my teeth and although I used less frequent whitening sessions and only used the shortest time for the whitening each treatment the result is visible. If you have been thinking about bleaching your teeth, but do not want to pay lots of money at the dentist and still have an effective result I can recommend you to try the Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening! The kit I’ve described above retails for 119.95 US$ (112.03 €). If you get your custom trays at the dentist you might pay 500 US$ and more! If you already have custom-fitted trays you might want to think about only trying the Whitening Gel (3 syringes for 34.95 US$) and the Desensitizing Gel (3 syringes for 19.95 US$). The Smile Brilliant web page is great, too, and they have very detailed information on each product and many images and step-by-step instructions on how to use their material. There is also a long list of YouTube reviews and testimonials and before and after images of people who have already used their system. Here is a link to one of the videos for example >>click here<<. It is definitively worth to check out their page. If you are interested in trying Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening you can use the coupon ‘berriesinthesnow’ for 5 % discount.
