At-Home Teeth Whitening with Smile Brilliant: Does It Work?

This blog post is sponsored by Smile Brilliant and includes a giveaway for a free whitening kit (valued at $149)! Read on to learn how to enter the giveaway.





I’m officially six weeks postpartum and all I have to say is #momlife is no joke. It’s an accomplishment if I have time to shower and a real-life achievement if I’m actually able to get an hour of work done during the day. Let’s just say self-care has taken a backseat because a) you can only do so much with one hand and b) you gotta pick and choose your top priorities and unfortunately making coffee comes way before looking cute in my book.

So just when I’m feeling like I never have time to put myself together, enter Smile Brilliant. Smile Brilliant reached out regarding a collaboration for their teeth whitening system and I didn’t even have to read through the entire email before saying yes! Even just the thought of doing something to make myself look and feel better in the comfort of my own home made me feel like a brand new human.

With the promise of a quick and easy whitening solution that I could achieve while wearing sweatpants on my couch, I figured there was no reason not to try it. Smile Brilliant sent me their T3 Sensitive Whitening System (yes, they even have special kits for people with sensitive teeth), and I was excited but also skeptical. I’ve gotten my teeth professionally whitened and have tried at-home remedies previously, and I only noticed a real difference with the professional whitening. At-home whitening has never worked for me, so let’s just say I did not have high hopes that I would notice a significant difference with Smile Brilliant’s system.

But after my very first whitening session, I was pleasantly surprised. I noticed my teeth were already slightly whiter after just one 45-minute whitening session – and that didn’t fade after a few hours (as other at-home whitening products tend to do).

The entire Smile Brilliant system is actually super easy and even customizable to each person. Smile Brilliant first sends you an entire whitening kit in which you make custom imprints of your top and bottom teeth and send those imprints back to their lab. Their lab then makes custom whitening trays that fit over your top and bottom teeth. Once you receive your custom trays in the mail, you can start whitening right away!




Each whitening session takes anywhere between 45 minutes – 3 hours, depending on your tooth sensitivity and desired whitening level. The best thing about at-home whitening is that you can decide when to do each whitening session based on your schedule. While I preferred to complete whitening sessions before bed (which is suggested for best results), I would sometimes do a session in the afternoon while Leo was sleeping and I knew I would have the perfect amount of time to get one done!

Although I’ve previously gotten my teeth whitened, I’m an avid coffee drinker (add some red wine in there, too), so my teeth have gradually gotten a bit darker over the years. However, Smile Brilliant’s system targets and removes surface stains (like coffee and red wine). I was thrilled when I noticed those stains fading and my smile getting brighter. After 7 whitening sessions, I’m super happy with the results and my new and improved smile!
