We all want to look our best and have white teeth and fresh breath. At least I know I do! (There are some people I would like to give a hint that they could really use to step up their dental hygiene game! Ha!) Anyway - There are so many products on the market to whiten your teeth that it can be confusing as to what really works and what doesn't and what you should try.
I recently was invited to try Smile Brilliant's home LED Teeth Whitening Kit. I asked my husband to try this out and be my test subject. He has some staining from coffee and tea and really needed to brighten his smile. My dentist (who is also my former employer and my husband's dentist as well) previously said it was safe for my husband to whiten his teeth but we moved away and hubby never got the chance. So this was a great opportunity for him.
About Smile Brilliant LED Whitening Kit
The kit comes with the following items:
- High intensity Ultra-Blue LED activating light (batteries included)
- Protective trays(top & bottom)
- 4ml Professional whitening gel pen (22% concentration)
- 30 Day money back guarantee
- Life-time tray replacement warranty
The instructions are very easy and clear to understand. You basically clean your teeth, then apply a healthy amount of whitening gel with the handy gel pen onto the teeth. Then you place the protective trays on the teeth to keep the gel in place. Then you turn on the light transmitter and put it in your mouth. The light is designed to accelerate the whitening process. You can whiten in as little as 20 minutes a day. If you are comfortable doing so, and have heavy staining you can wear the trays anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. (From my time working in the dental field - I have to say - you may want to check with your dentist to be sure you are a candidate for whitening first - especially if you have any dental health issues. Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth/gums is helpful when you're in a period of teeth whitening also.)
Our Experience with Smile Brilliant
My husband said the whitening gel had virtually no taste. The trays were a little lightweight, but he felt like they did the job keeping the gel on his teeth. He had only very slight sensitivity in the gums during whitening but this went away. He felt the trays, the light, were comfortable - he had no issues using them, while watching TV. We are not really sure how much the light really helped or if it was simply the gel doing the work - but the kit DID work. He did the whitening every few days over 2 weeks. (You can do this daily or every other day. Our schedule is just hectic with a child who has some special needs and with travel) Below is a before and after photo. All in all - his teeth came several shades lighter. He is still going to finish using the gel included over the next week and get his teeth a bit lighter. I was pleased with his results too! Overall - we think this product is priced well at $39.99 and is worth trying.
