I love to smile. In fact, you won't see many pictures of me not smiling. The only problem is that my teeth are horribly yellow. Perhaps it is due to genetics. Or perhaps it is because of the fact that I drink several cups of coffee a day. Regardless, my teeth are yellow and it is quite embarrassing.
When I got married I knew I would be doing plenty of smiling and I didn't want to have yellow teeth in all of my wedding pictures. I had my teeth whitened professionally by my dentist and they were very bright and sparkly for my wedding day. Since then, though, my teeth are back to being yellow again and I just can't afford the high price of professional whitening at this time.
Thanks to Smile Brilliant and their home teeth whitening products, I can now get rid of the yellow at a fraction of the cost of professional whitening treatments! They offer the same professional product as your dentist, with no visit necessary. There are many packages to choose from ranging from a simple gel pen to a deluxe whitening system.
I recently received the Brilliantly Simple package for review. When speed is the key to your brilliant new smile, this package has everything you need. It comes with a whitening gel pen, two protective trays, a small paintbrush and a high intensity Ultra-Blue LED activating light.
The Brilliantly Simple whitening system is pretty easy to use. You simply paint the gel on with the small brush, insert the protective trays over your teeth to keep the gel off of your lips and then put the activating light up to your teeth. It does take a little time to paint the gel on your teeth, but once that is done, there is nothing else to it. You keep the light on your teeth for 20-45 minutes and let the gel do the work.
I used the gel for three consecutive days and I definitely saw a difference in the color of my teeth. The difference is more noticeable to me when I look in the mirror than in the photos I took, but I think you can still see the difference in these photos. The yellow isn't quite as noticeable on the sides, and my front teeth are definitely brighter!
The system came with a very basic instruction sheet, and I wish it had given me more information. I would have liked to know how many times I was supposed to use this system to really see results. I looked at the FAQs on the website and found that the initial teeth whitening process is supposed to be continued for 12 days. Therefore, I am still using the kit and I think the more I use it, the whiter my teeth will be. I noticed that my teeth looked the best immediately after using the Smile Brilliant system, so I think this would be a great way to give your teeth an extra sparkle before an event or family photos.
I also read in the FAQs that some people may experience increased sensitivity of their teeth and gums while using the system, which will go away once you stop using it. I normally have very sensitive teeth, and I didn't experience any increased sensitivity while using the system. You are not supposed to get the gel on your gums, but I find that it is almost impossible to avoid that. It did bother my gums a little bit while I was using it on the third day, but as soon as I rinsed my mouth out, that discomfort was gone.
While I don't know if I will get the same results from Smile Brilliant as I did from the dentist in just one visit, I definitely think this system works, and it is very affordable. The Brilliantly Simple package costs only $39.99, and it comes with a money back guarantee. Smile Brilliant offers a no questions asked 100% results satisfaction guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied with your whitening results, you will receive a full product refund.
With a 100% satisfaction guarantee, you should definitely give Smile Brilliant a try!
