At Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work?

When I got engaged I had a check list of a million and one things to do before the wedding. One of the things at the top of that list was making sure my smile looked its absolute best for the big day, after all these are pictures we will be keeping forever. In the past I had tried at home whitening products (strips, toothpaste, whitening pens) but none of them gave me the results I was looking for. Some even came with the nasty side effect of a terrible taste and increased sensitivity (hello shooting pains). Then I was introduced to Smile Brilliant! PS… I’ve teamed up with Smile Brilliant to host a giveaway so make sure you check it out below! 

Smile Brilliant offers an at home whitening kit that is beyond simple and so so so convenient. In your kit you will receive material to make your own moulds (for those of you that had braces imagine a way less intense version of what you had done at the orthodontist), whitening gel and desensitizing gel. Once you have made your moulds and mailed them in Smile Brilliant will ship you your customized trays and you can start the whitening process.

Since I have had issues with sensitivity when whitening in the past I decided to start with just 30 minutes of whitening per session. Even with just 30 minutes I was SO impressed with the results after even just the first two sessions, let alone a weeks worth. Thanks to the desensitizing gel I ended up having no sensitivity issues the entire time I was whitening AND it helps to prevent future stains. My one tip is to make sure you are using enough gel in your trays each session (about 1/4 to 1/3 of the whitening gel syringe) so that it covers your entire tooth. If you put your trays in and realize you have too much gel the best way to get rid of the excess is using a Q-tip to wipe it away. 

Now for the best part….I am giving away a kit! You can enter the giveaway HERE and I will be announcing the winner in 1 week. The giveaway is open to Canada, the US, Australia and the UK. You can also use the code justloblog20 to get 20% off your trays!
