brandi-matthews-smile-brilliant-before-afterHoly Smokes! I am very very impressed with the results from Smile Brilliant’s at home whitening system. Having a bright and white smile can take years off your appearance and is an instant confidence booster. In the past I have tried whitening at home with Crest whitening strips, which I found to be less effective because they aren’t custom fitted and they fall off my teeth and were painful. I’ve also tried a $500 Zoom treatment from my dentist, and to my disappointment, I didn’t notice a huge difference in the color of my teeth. Neither came close to the results I’ve gotten with this amazing custom product! Ranging from $130-$160, it’s super affordable and worth every penny.

After you’ve purchased the starter kit with your custom teeth whitening trays, you’ll only need to purchase the whitening gel and desensitizing gel thereafter for upkeep. ($35-$69 depending on the bundle that you choose.)  For the full price list and different bundle sets for purchase just visit their site for more info and options. The process is super simple and I love anything that I don’t have to go sit in L.A. traffic for, and instead get delivered straight to my door! Once my starter kit arrived, I immediately started making my impressions and the instructions were super simple to follow. Once you’ve followed the steps for creating your impressions, they must sit for 30 minutes and be completely hardened before you can ship them back in the convenient and prepaid envelope. After the lab receives your impressions (about 3-4 days) they will ship the trays back to you within 5 days. I started whitening the day my trays arrived because I was crazy stoked to get started! If you follow me in Instagram, you know I am an avid coffee drinker and I don’t see myself giving that up anytime soon. I also enjoy wine in the evenings and after time it really does take a toll on my teeth, even if I brush them right away! After whitening the past two months with Smile Brilliant, my teeth are much whiter and vibrant. I feel less self conscious now when I’m having my daily latte because I know I can always whiten later if my smile starts to fade. The actual whitening process is very easy and the whitening time is totally up to you depending on how sensitive your teeth are. For the first two weeks I only whitened for 45 min- 1 hour and worked my way up to two hours after that. (You can even leave them on for 3 hours!) I highly recommend using the desensitizing gel afterwards (only takes 15 minutes) so your teeth aren’t in any pain. That was one thing I remember about using whitening strips years ago, was that it would be very painful during, and after treatment. My teeth were only sensitive the first time I wore these trays, (not too severe though, just minor pains) and I didn’t experience any further sensitivity after using the gel that first time! If your gums are a little more on the sensitive side, try using coconut oil on them while you whiten and keeping off the excess gel that may make it’s way to your gums. They also have other info for why your teeth might be sensitive and how to remedy it for a more enjoyable experience. The trays are custom to your teeth and fit so comfortably that I found it easy to whiten pretty much any time of the day. Whether it be running about the house doing chores, working on my Blog, or even just jumping on my Spin bike for an hour! (Two birds, winner.)

So why Smile Brilliant? Because its affordable, convenient, easy to use, and most importantly, IT WORKS! I saw results after just one use which motivated me to stay consistent in my whitening journey because I was excited to see the end result. I am so very happy I started whitening with Smile Brilliant and will definitely continue to keep up with it.
