With the new year, I thought it was perfect timing to have a brighter smile! I want to share with you guys how my smile got a whole lot whiter.

Time for some confessions. I drink A LOT of coffee. I’ve loved coffee for a while, but when I became a mom, I drank more and more coffee. If there are moms out there that don’t drink coffee, I don’t know how you do it!! Hubby and I go to different coffee shops around town every single weekend. So while I enjoy the energy it gives me, I also really enjoy coffee in general. Now, I tell you all of that because drinking coffee, unfortunately, has it’s consequences — teeth stains.

Since I am confessing about my coffee intake, I should also add that I love Coke. That’s the only soft drink I like, and I drink it quite a bit during the week. Again….consequences of teeth stains.

Before trying Smile Brilliant, I tried whitening strips and whitening toothpaste and I was just not seeing any results.

I have been SO impressed with the results from Smile Brilliant’s whitening trays. I was a bit nervous with trying these because I have sensitive teeth, but I did not experience teeth sensitivity at all. I would like to add that I experienced a little bit of gum sensitivity my first time whitening, but did not experience any after that.


I loved how easy these were to put together and use. The kit came with the impression materials and only after about a week, my trays came in! The instructions were incredibly easy to follow and Smile Brilliant was extremely pleasant to work with.

How it Works…

You receive your kit in the mail and it is filled with everything you need, including instructions. You make your impressions for your top and bottom teeth and mail back your impressions. From there, they will send you your trays back.

Once you receive your trays, you are ready to start whitening! You whiten anywhere between 45 minutes to 3 hours! I did 45 minutes my first two times then moved up to about an hour and a half.


After you whiten, you put the desensitizing gel on for about 10-15 minutes and it takes away any sensitivity you may feel. I have to admit, I wanted to see if the desensitizing gel made a difference so one day I didn’t use and did experience sensitivity. I would definitely recommend using the desensitizing gel after each use!

I was recommended to use the whitening trays 7-14 days. I used my trays a total of 9 days with only 2 days in between.

I have been so impressed with my results!
