This post is sponsored by Smile Brilliant and created after 8 weeks of trying out the product on a daily basis. 

Here is an interesting fact that most people don’t know about me. I’ve had braces for a total of 9 years. I was one of the few kids who had braces back then and it was so stressful and embarrassing! After all those years, you bet I made sure to take extra good care of my teeth until I discovered coffee and became addicted in college. If you’re a coffee person, you should know that coffee is a huge teeth stainer! Every time I tried out in-home whitening kits or at the dentist’s office, my teeth reacted very sensitively to the products so I simply stopped using them and depended on whitening toothpaste, which worked but didn’t quite give me what I wanted either. Please tell me if this is just me, but I really like to have my teeth match the color of my eyeballs (obviously the white part).

I’ve been seriously considering getting my teeth whitened professionally when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try out their in-home whitening kit. The opportunity came at a great time because if I like it and it works, I can share it with my viewers. I’ve had mixed feelings about it in the beginning because there are so many different brands out there. After 8 weeks, however, I’m proud to say my smiles have definitely gotten brighter! If you’re another coffee junkie like myself, a wine fanatic, or have a bad history with in-home whitening kits because you have sensitive teeth, this product may be worth a try for you. Be sure to participate in the giveaway at the end of this post!

Why Smile Brilliant Works 

  1. Simple, fast and user-friendly process: It’s a commitment to make time in the middle of a work week to pay a visit to the dentist. Smile Brilliant sent me a box with everything I needed to create a mold at home (3 separate ones in case of a mess up) and all I had to was to send it back and wait for my tray to arrive to get started.
  2. Cost-efficient: Dentists offer “complimentary whitening services,” but these are usually included in the price of the visit, so it’s not really free. Some whitening services can cost you up to $500. This kit eliminates the office visit and the whole process of getting your kit + tray for under $150.
  3. Great for sensitive teeth: Unlike any other in-home whitening kits I’ve tried, Smile Brilliant included a desensitizing gel I can use after whitening. This helped me so much and I absolutely love not having that weird, sensitive feeling on my teeth after whitening.
  4. Quick, efficient customer service: Before I even came up with questions, the staff actively reached out to follow-up on me with any questions I had and how the process was going overall. Everyone I talked to had tips as well as detailed directions about the whitening process which I truly appreciated. It also showed that the team really lives and breathes the product. This personally meant so much to me because there are so many times when there are people on the team who really have no idea what they’re talking about.
