The Best at Home Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

Who else struggles with stained teeth from the coffee, teas, sodas and wine that get us through the day? I don’t know about you, but I feel extremely self-conscience when my teeth look that weird off-white color. One, because it’s gross, and two because It’s something I notice on other people. The easiest solution would be to give up those dark beverages and only drink water- but let’s get real, that is never going to happen. Instead of changing my habits I like to make sure to have a good teeth whitener I can count on to keep my pearly whites at least semi-white with all the abuse I put them through.

 Throughout the years, I’ve tried all sorts of different methods for whitening my teeth. I’ve bought the whitening toothpastes (with little success) and crest white strips which work well but always leave my teeth and gums sensitive (like can’t even enjoy a bowl of cereal with cold milk sensitive).

That’s when I found Smile Brilliant and decided to give it a try! It’s an at home teeth whitening kit that is tailored just for you.

When you order Smile Brilliant you receive a box in the mail with a few different things. The first step you will have to complete is to take impressions of your teeth. It’s super easy to do and is not as uncomfortable as you would imagine. All you do is roll up some blue putty looking material, put it into the trays provided and stick it on your teeth for a few minutes! Voila – you have impressions. Once your impressions dry you mail them back to Smile Brilliant (in a pre-addressed envelope included in the box) and wait for them to create your custom whitening trays. This whole process of sending them back and receiving your trays is very quick and only took a few weeks.

Once you get your trays back in the mail the whitening process begins. You will have two different kinds of gels in syringes. The one in the orange packaging is the whitening gel. Squeeze the gel into your custom trays and put them on.  I’ve been fortunate enough never to have had braces but I imagine that this feels like you’re wearing a retainer.  You leave the whitening gel on for anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on how sensitive your teeth get. I typically whitening for around an hour to an hour and a half.

Now comes my favorite part – when the whitening is done you brush your teeth like normal and then take the desensitizing gel in the purple syringe and put it into your trays. This gel feels SO good on your teeth/gums and really helps knock down the sensitivity that I always experience when I’m whitening my teeth. You can leave this gel on for as long or little as you like. I normally left it on for about 20 minutes to get the best results for me. But everyone is different, so just like the whitening gel, you should do whatever is the most comfortable for you!

Overall, I really enjoyed my experience with this whitening system. Not only was the product high quality but the customer service was incredible. They were always there to answer questions or assist me in the process if I was feeling any kind of discomfort. If you are looking to try out a new whitening system this is the one for you! Also – coming from a girl who is always on the road I found this extremely easy to travel with. I would typically go through a syringe within a week so I would pack it with my liquids on the way to wherever I was going and would throw it out before I left!
