Many people want a Colgate smile in this cosmetically driven world. Statistics indicate that Americans spend $1.4 billion on whitening their teeth every year. In-office teeth whitening may ensure a whiter and brighter smile, yet it comes with a steep price tag. It can cost anywhere from $300 to $800 to have your teeth professionally whitened, and it can cost from anywhere between $300 – $600 for an at-home bleaching kit from a dentist!
Known for its gentle, yet effective professional strength at-home teeth whitening system, Smile Brilliant is easy, convenient, and delivers the same results that you’d get from a professional teeth whitening service at the fraction of the cost. Depending on one of the three packages that you choose, their prices range from $119.95 – $154.95!
To ensure the perfect customized dental trays, they send three sets of dental impression material that consists of catalyst paste and base paste to combine and place in the blue plastic trays that come with this kit. These blue plastic trays, which are reminiscent of a mouth guard, are not the trays that you’ll be using later for whitening your teeth, as these trays are just solely used for making your upper and dental impressions with the combined putty (catalyst paste and base paste). Keeping the impression trays in was a little tricky for me since my gag reflex can easily be triggered when having to keep something in my mouth for a certain length of time. That’s why I can’t do oil pulling! Somehow I made it through the process and made near perfect dental impressions to mail back to Smile Brilliant’s lab to receive my customized trays. They receive impressions within 3-4 business days and approximately 6-10 business days if shipped internationally. The custom whitening trays are created and mailed off within 5 days after the impressions are received.
I have tried teeth whitening systems in the past, including an at-home teeth whitening system from my dentist. My sensitive gums normally couldn’t handle more than two sessions, thus I had no choice but to not complete the recommended amount of sessions. I couldn’t help but be leery of Smile Brilliant since I had pretty much chalked up all teeth whitening systems to being the same. Since gum irritation is a common issue for many, Smile Brilliant wanted to set themselves apart from the rest by including a desensitizing gel in addition to the whitening gel. The desensitizers help make gum and tooth sensitivity more tolerable. Best of all, they replenish essential minerals and vitamins that are lost during the whitening treatments. Using a desensitizing gel will also reduce the chances of re-staining of the teeth following whitening procedures, remineralize small lesions, strengthen tooth enamel.
I avoid some of the most commonly known staining culprits (i.e. soda, tobacco, and coffee), but I do have a weakness for something that’s deeply rich with antioxidants and other healthy nutrients, but is unfortunately so highly pigmented that cause discoloration: blueberries! No, they don’t permanently stain teeth to a deep blue hue, but it can be discoloring, nonetheless! Thanks to Smile Brilliant, I was able to achieve a healthier looking smile that looks naturally bright without being blindingly white.
One winner will receive a Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening System. The giveaway will conclude on February 2nd.
I wish I could get my teeth just a little bit whiter. I’ve tried professional whiteners but I think they just don’t seem to take.

Glad you found something that gets the teeth looking naturally white again. It’s always so hard to get them whitened.

One thing that has made me smile is my husband.
I got to sleep IN to day! Oh that did make me smile broadly… smiled all night long! And the hot coffee waiting for me when I did stumble down to the kitchen… another big smile. I’m still smiling, working on a second cup.
My daughter running to the bus stop made me smile today
Seeing pictures of my grandson made me smile.

I should see if my daughter is interested in this. She has a lot of discoloration on her teeth because of the three years she had braces.

when the dogs play in the snow…it makes me smile
My five year old son randomly humming the law and order theme song because I watch it so much.
What made me smile today was I got a call from the local police letting me know that I was next on the deer hit list. An injured deer was put down after being hit by a car, which is sad…but the meat will be put to good use. I’ll get 50 pounds of venison (which will be turned into hamburger given the price of meat! $60 to process…making the meat )…meat that is organic, hormone free, free range…and of all the meats out there is one of the healthiest for you to eat. 🙂
My two grand daughters were playing and laughing and it made me smile. My one grand daughter, Kaitlyn, is five and she was talking to her 5 month old sister, Madelyn and making her laugh and make baby noises. They were getting quite wound up. It was adorable!
The one thing today that made my smile was my kids.
my dogs made me smile today

I woke up to find my daughters highchair put together, yay!
My hubby and three kiddos have a few times today 🙂
My son made me smile today. He has that sweet little voice still and when he dropped some jam on his shirt he said “oh no, bad jam!” His voice reminds me of Mr. Bill and just makes me smile.
My boss made me smile.
The SuperBowl makes me smile.
I always smile when I see my dog.

What a cool kit, and the before and after pictures are incredible! Looks like it brilliantly works. Unfortunately, as someone with very poor teeth because of genetic oral health issues, I can’t use whitening treatments, or anything involving trays for my teeth because none of them will fit my mouth. This looks really great for those without unique issues like mine, though!
Thanks for sharing this valuable knowledge. Keep sharing posts like this!
