Teeth Whitening at Home for Busy Moms + Smile Brilliant Giveaway

DISCLOSURE: I partnered with Smile Brilliant for this review. I received product in exchange for my 100% honest opinion.

Whether you have one kid or ten kids, life with kids is busy! As a mom to four kids of my own, there simply isn't enough time to do everything. Scheduling the necessary appointments is enough of a juggling act, and the extra things, like hair cuts and teeth whitening, quickly get pushed aside.


Motherhood

In order to keep up with the constant busyness, I run on very little sleep and a LOT of caffeine. That's not the healthiest way of doing things, but it's just a brief phase in my life. I have to make it work, so I adapt any possibly way I can. And right now, my life is fueled by caffeine!

Nothing Down About It

After years of caffeine-fueled motherhood, I began to notice some slight stains near my gum line. I knew it was the effect of all that caffeine. Although it wasn't really noticeable to others, it bothered me, and I wanted to do something about it.

I hadn't whitened my teeth in years, so I wasn't really sure what to use. Previously, I had used teeth whitening strips and I hated the way they constantly slid off my teeth. Plus, I didn't think they worked very well. The idea of using a whitening solution in trays intrigued me, but I wasn't sure where to turn. That's when Smile Brilliant came into my life!


Smile Brilliant

This affordable, professional at home teeth whitening kit is perfect for anybody, but it's especially good for busy moms who have little time to spend on themselves. I was literally able to whiten while doing everyday tasks. I whitened while blogging, while playing with my kids in the backyard, while cooking dinner and while watching TV. I even whitened while I drove to pick Lily up from Kindergarten. Talk about convenient!

Teeth Whitening At Home

The at home teeth whitening kit from Smile Brilliant includes everything you need to make your custom fitted teeth whitening trays and whiten your teeth. From the first step to the last, the process is simple and convenient. Additional Professional Teeth Whitening Gel and Sustained Release Desensitizing Gel can even be purchased for later use.

After the kit arrives, the first step is to make your dental impressions. The included instructions are simple to follow and the kit includes 3 sets of impression material which is used to make the impressions. Although 2 sets is plenty for the impressions, it was nice to know that a third set was available just in case a mistake was made!

All you have to do is mix the Catalyst and the Base Paste together, fill the included trays with the mixed putty and bite down for 2 1/2 minutes. (Top teeth and bottom teeth are done separately.) After 2 1/2 minutes is up, you simply remove the tray, allow to sit for 30 minutes, then rinse with cool water. I wrote a blog post while my impressions hardened!

Once the impressions completely harden, they can be placed in the included mailing envelope and sent to the lab. Making the impressions was the toughest part for me. I have a terrible gag reflex, so the 5 combined minutes felt like an eternity. I was so relieved when they were done! I put them in the mail and a few days later, I was notified by the lab that they had received my impressions. Less than a week later, my trays arrived in the mail!

I was so excited to start whitening my teeth! I thoroughly brushed and flossed my teeth, then grabbed all the supplies I needed to use to whiten from the kit.

I placed a thin line of gel to the front surface of my trays, dried my teeth, then inserted the trays. The trays fit perfectly! I wiped away the excess whitening gel from my teeth and began timing. At that point, I could do anything while my teeth whitened!

At Home Teeth Whitening

There are quite a few benefits that I noticed while using Smile Brilliant. The custom fitted trays do not slip and they put the whitening gel in direct contact with all of your teeth. The Whitening Gel and the Desensitizing Gel have a pleasant taste, which is important since the trays remain in your mouth for over an hour. There is a noticeable difference after just one use. But the biggest benefit of all was that wearing the whitening process didn't slow me down one bit. It only took a few minutes of my day and I was able to whiten while accomplishing everyday tasks!


On the first day, I wore the trays for 45 minutes. I gradually increased the time until I reached 1 1/2 hours, but the trays can be worn for up to 3 hours a day. A word of caution is to start with the shortest amount of time and gradually increase the time. I upped the amount of time I wore them far too quickly, and I ended up burning my gums. I was told to take a break until they healed completely, then take my time when I began whitening again.

It was also recommended that I try putting a thinner line of whitening gel in my trays and to rub Vaseline or coconut oil on my gums before whitening. I followed those tips, and the whitening process went smoothly after that! Smile Brilliant has some great tips for people who have tooth sensitivity.

The Smile Brilliant at home whitening kit also includes Sustained Release Desensitizing Gel. When you remove your trays after whitening,  you are supposed to clean them with cool water, carefully dry them, then brush and dry your teeth. Apply a thin line of Desensitizing Gel to both the upper and lower trays, insert them and wear them for 15-20 minutes. After the time is up, remove the trays, but do not rinse your mouth. Also, it's recommended that you avoid eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes.

I did most of my whitening before bed, and I used the Desensitizing Gel after every whitening session. I noticed a difference after just one whitening treatment! When I finished the entire whitening process, my teeth were several shades lighter!

Teeth Whitening

I would highly recommend the Smile Brilliant at home whitening kit to anybody who wants to whiten their teeth at home. Not only is it very easy to use, but it's also affordable AND effective. Its professional whitening quality is similar to what is available from a dentist, but for a lot less money! Plus, once you have your trays, you can purchase more Whitening Gel and Desensitizing Gel when your teeth need a boost. I only did 8 treatments so I still have plenty left, but I'm completely satisfied with the whiteness of my teeth already!

Teeth Whitening

I am so pleased with the results I received from Smile Brilliant! Whitening my teeth at home was fast, easy and convenient, and I definitely plan on using it again. This mama barely had to slow down to whiten!
