At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work? | LIFESTYLE

30 Jul 2018


If you've been following me for  a while then you may have caught that recently got married (*shock horror*), and as part of my countdown to the event in May I was trying to tweak parts of my beauty routine to try and perfect that bridal look.  One of the biggest things I wanted to try and perfect is my smile, years of smoking have left me with a yellow tinge that needed to be blasted after I finally kicked the habit.  Luckily, the team over at Smile Brilliant got in touch before the wedding and offered to send me out their pack to try out so I could get that gorgeous white bride smile!


The process is really simple, I opted for T6 starter system which includes pack for a mould, whitening gel and sensitivity gel.  I popped in my moulds and posted them off to the Smile Brilliant labs and waited eagerly for my tray to return with my personal whitening moulds.  Within 2 weeks they arrived at home and I started the process, each syringe of gel has roughly 4 or 5 sessions in it (so a little goes a long way) and I decided to build up my time from 45 minutes to 90 minutes over 5 sessions in the week.  It was so, so easy and I personally found it to be sensitivity free.

In comparison to strips and charcoal toothpastes, the stain removal here was deep and meant that any stains that were removed were banished.  As a former smoker, this was a biggy and a huge selling point for me.  I wanted as close to a pearly white as I could get for a photo, but worried about having a Ross Gellar moment too...


The results speak for themselves, I got half way through my starter pack before flying out to Florida for the wedding and I have already seen a significant difference in the colour.  The yellow tinge has lifted and I've had people comment on how great they look already, they also look pretty great in photos!
Considering that laser whitening costs upwards of £300 from your local dentist office, I think this is an absolute snip at $149 and also considerably more time efficient - I was able to run the washing machine and answer emails from my couch whilst my moulds were doing their magic rather than spending a considerable amount of time sitting in a dentist chair.
