Teeth whitening is something I take VERY seriously. I have always been a little obsessed with teeth and whitening them. I have tried a few different methods: lemon and baking soda, whitening strips, whitening gel, and now these smile brilliant trays. When it comes to whitening, you want something that isn’t going to ruin the enamel on your teeth. Why is this? enamel helps to protect your teeth and effects the sensitivity you may have to hot or cold items.
I’ve really enjoyed my teeth whitening experience with Smile Brilliant because of the desensitizing gel they include in their kit. I HAVE to use the desensitizing gel twice a day to prevent my teeth from feeling tickled. I really liked having the impressions that fit my teeth perfectly. Having extra gel in my mouth usually grosses me out and burns my tongue. I feel like overall, this system really fits my lifestyle well.
The results from this teeth whitening kit have lasted the longest out of all the whitening solutions I have tried. This kit has given me the quickest results that is for sure. I use a peroxide and mouthwash mixture to help maintain my smile and clean the plaque off my teeth to prevent further staining. I have taken so long to write this post to ensure my satisfaction with this product. We are so satisfied that we are looking in to getting a system for my husband to try. Smile brilliant is unique for its personalized systems to match your sensitivity level; you can pick out one that will best fit your teeth.

Q & A:
How long do you keep the whitening gel on?
You can keep the gel on for 45 minutes to 2 hours long. I kept my gel on for 45 minutes because my teeth are sensitive.
When do you put on the desensitizing gel?
You can put the desensitizing gel on immediately following a teeth whitening session.
How long do you keep the desensitizing gel on?
Leave the desensitizing gel on for 15-20 minutes. I left my gel on for 20 minutes each time and used it after I would whiten my teeth as well as in the morning immediately after waking up.
Can I eat after whitening my teeth?
No. You need to wait at least 30 minutes before eating to avoid staining your teeth. The pockets in your teeth need have enough time to close.
When did I whiten my teeth?
I would whiten my teeth immediately after dinner for 45 minutes. I would then put the gel on for another 20 minutes. Voila! Process done.
How many days did I whiten them?
I whitened my teeth 9 days in a row with 2 breaks in the middle to avoid making my teeth too sensitive.
Will the whitening last forever?
No. You will need to whiten about every 3 months here and there to touch up your teeth for new stains that occur ESPECIALLY if you are a coffee drinker.
Can I drink coffee during the whitening process?
Yes, but I suggest drinking through a straw and rinsing immediately after drinking your coffee. your pores remain open for 48 hours after whitening and the coffee could and will stain your teeth. Be SUPER vigilant.
