I’m always up for a challenge so when Smile Brilliant, an at home teeth whitening company approached me about working together, I was all in. Did you know that red heads have a harder time whitening our teeth than blondes and brunettes?! It’s true! Along with being more resistant to pain medication, not turning grey, and a bunch of other crazy stuff- gingers are pretty much mystical unicorns and whitening our teeth is quite the difficult task. We’re bizarre, I know.
I’ve tried my fair share of whitening products including professional services from my dentist so I decided to do a little research on my own before agreeing to try this at-home system because if you know anything about my blog, you know I’m super picky about the brands and products I feature on here. Luckily one of my blogger besties had used Smile Brilliant before so the product came with a sparkling recommendation- plus that same bestie has a freaking dazzling white smile so I was eager to do whatever she was doing. My first concern was finding out exactly what the actual whitening gel was composed of. I was happy to learn that it is a 22% carbamide peroxide gel.
I was also concerned with how well the whitening trays would actually fit and what they would be made of. The impression material used to make the mold for the tray is very similar to the type I had used in the dental office which yielded very accurate molds which made me feel good about the result.
Everything you need will arrive in your Smile Brilliant kit. The kit includes the impression material and trays to make your molds, plenty of the whitening gel, desensitizing gel in case you need it, and in depth instructions on each step complete with pictures for people like me that prefer to follow visual instructions over words!
