*I received my teeth whitening kit from Smile Brilliant for free in exchange for an honest review. I never promote products to readers that I don’t like and use.

Hey nerds!

As you may or may not know, I recently moved to North Carolina and started my own business. It’s been a crazy few weeks since I got this thing rolling, and I’ve been drinking more coffee than ever before.

Coffee might be great for energy levels and focus (and tastes amazing), but it’s not so great for my teeth.

I’ve always been proud of my smile; I was born lucky and haven’t had much trouble with my teeth. I didn’t even need braces!

But… drinking so much coffee—among other things—takes its toll on your pearly whites!

Enter: Smile Brilliant.

I’d never seriously considered getting my teeth whitened. It’s expensive, after all. Or, that’s what I thought. I’ve been using gentle whitening toothpaste for years, but I think it just prevented the coffee stains from getting worse.

When Smile Brilliant reached out a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to try their teeth whitening kit, of course I said yes! Their system and enthusiasm is what intrigued me.

Their process is simple: they send you a kit full of the supplies you’ll need from clay (for custom-fitted tray molds) to whitening and sensitivity gels to a pre-paid envelope to send your molds back to them! Within a few days of sending my molds back, I had my custom-fitted trays and was ready to rock.

Once you receive your molds, it’s super easy to whiten. Just floss and brush (sans toothpaste), put a bit of whitening gel into your trays, and pop those babies in. Set a timer for 45 minutes to 3 hours (depending on your sensitivity level), and go do whatever you want.

What I love most about the Smile Brilliant system (besides the cost) is that I can whiten on my own time. I don’t have to sit in the dentist’s office for an hour; instead, I can play Overwatch, read a book, or watch Netflix with the boyfriend.

A word of caution for anyone with a gag reflex: if you’re like me and have a bad gag reflex, the trays will take some getting used to (and some willpower). I was, of course, expecting this because I know how my body works, but don’t be surprised if you struggle the first few times you use your trays! It’s totally worth the end result.
