At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work?

At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work?
Thank you to Smile Brilliant for partnering with me for this post.

Two years ago I got braces. Being a young adult with braces is not easy and I was so happy when I finally got them off. But then I realized straight teeth was only half of the battle. I also needed to make sure to keep them shiny and white. This is where Smile Brilliant comes in. Smile Brilliant is a teeth whitener that makes trays fitted for your teeth so you can get the best results. I used to use whitening strips and it was so difficult to keep on my teeth and actually caused me pain. Smile Brilliant trays were a great alternative to this. Here is how I take care of my smile.

Smile Brilliant sends you a package that contains all the things you need. It comes with a catalyst and base paste and a mold so you can make the impressions for your teeth. Plus, they include a pre-paid postage so it’s so easy to send back. It also includes the whitening gel and the desensitizing gel and they will send back your custom trays when they’re ready. It’s super easy to use. You put a layer of gel on your trays and put them on and you give it an hour or two and you’re done!

I used my trays at night and were easy to use. Besides strips, all I would use is brightening toothpaste so I didn’t know what would work best for me. After a few uses, I did see a difference with Smile Brilliant!


My teeth have gotten somewhat sensitive and this was so gentle on my teeth! I think it’s great that it also comes with a desensitizing gel because you can put that on after and it will help if your teeth feel sensitive. I like that it was a soft tray that stayed on your teeth because I know that when I put on strips and if they had to be adjusted it would get unsticky so having trays that fit helps a lot.


My biggest issue with this was the time. I’m always out and about due to work and school so dedicating one to two hours everyday was a bit hard because of my schedule. The process was also a bit slower for me. I did drink coffee everyday and I wasn’t going to give that up so that’s something to keep in mind.


I think Smile Brilliant is a great option for teeth whitening! At-home teeth whitening can always be hard when you have sensitive teeth and this has great options to minimize that. If you have the time to go through it, it will be amazing for you and you will get results.
