At Home Teeth Whitening

The one thing that never changes in my morning routine is throwing on a pot of coffee before my husband wakes up. There is something incredibly relaxing about the sound of it brewing and the aroma makes me feel like I just stepped into my own personal coffee shop. Unfortunately, my necessary dose of caffeine does little for keeping my teeth pearly white, so I’m always looking for products to help remove years of sipping on my favorite cup of joe.

It was perfect when Smile Brilliant reached out to me a few weeks ago to test out their teeth whitening system. My smile was craving a little TLC and the best part was I could do it all from the comfort of my own home!

I became an avid coffee drinker when I was in college. In between classes, sorority events, my part-time job, and having a social life I needed an extra boost of energy to get through the day. I would try other teeth whitening products, like Crest whitening strips, to help erase the discoloration from my caffeine habit but the strips would always fall off my teeth and the sensitivity from the strips was uncomfortable. I felt defeated when other products did not show much of a difference after weeks of using them. The one thing I love about Smile Brilliant is they make custom trays for the whitening process. I would put the trays in at night before bed while I was finishing up my nightly routine or binging on my favorite Netflix shows. You can leave the trays in for up to 3 hours but I usually kept them in for about an hour and a half. You can always do what works best for you.  

Do you have sensitive teeth? You might be a little worried about using an at home teeth whitening kit. No problem, the kit comes with desensitizing gel to follow up with after the whitening process. My teeth would become sensitive after using other teeth whitening systems but after using the desensitizing gel my teeth felt little to no sensitivity at all. It was a holy grail of gels for my teeth!

*Please note, I am not a dentist, so it is always best to talk to your dentist before any teeth whitening process.

Ok, so I’m sure your wondering about how the kit works. The process is super simple. Smile Brilliant asked me a few questions about my dental history and sent me a package to make my custom molds for the teeth whitening trays along with the teeth whitening and desensitizing gel. They include an envelope to return your molds and the Smile Brilliant Lab creates and sends back your custom teeth whitening trays.  


I used the product every night, (sometimes every other night), before bed for the past two weeks and have seen my teeth becoming increasingly whiter. I am blown away by how great this kit worked at giving me back my pre-coffee smile, and with all of the upcoming holiday festivities and parties, it will be nice to show up with a glowing smile. I included my before and after photos. This is from only two weeks of using the product.

I do not plan on giving up my daily caffeine, so I will definitely continue using this system and have encouraged my friends and family who are looking for a dental grade teeth whitening system for under $200 to give the kit a try. The kit I tested out retails for $139. If you have any questions about Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening process, feel free to ask me in the comment section of this post and I will be happy to answer them. I also included 10 Facts About Teeth Whitening and some frequently asked questions.
