Professional and Affordable At-Home Teeth Whitening

“If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours” - Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton was on to something with this. Having a great smile not only increases my confidence but having a great smile also brightens those around you. Smile Brilliant, is just what its name suggests, and it allows me to enjoy my morning cup of coffee and the occasional glass of wine with friends without compromising my bright smile. If you’re looking for a perfect product this holiday season check out Smile Brilliant; it would make the perfect gift or an amazing self care gift for you. Because you know what? You’re brilliant and deserve a smile that says the same!

I remember being that little girl with a "brace-face", trying to get the "perfect smile"...or quite frankly just close up the one inch cap I was so embarrassed of between my front two teeth. Without even realizing it at that age, my smile was already going to play a huge impact in my confidence growing up. I'll never forget the photos my mom forever hangs onto of me competing in my very first pageant...with a brace-face singing in front of the camera - and I'll also never forget how insecure it made me feel. I was surrounded by women of all ages, who were so confidently beautiful in their own skin, and I aspired to have that.

Fast forward to two years later, braces are removed and I'm feeling more comfortable with my smile...but for all of you who have went through the braces process know sometimes it leaves you with yellow stains around where the brackets were; and just that happened. So from going to being so excited to have the best smile (or so I thought I would have) to getting my braces off and having discolored teeth...I was feeling pretty uncomfortable in my own skin.

I spent the next several years leading up to my 20's, using all sorts of whitening toothpastes, whitening strips, charcoal toothpastes, and the list goes on and on. Basically I was willing to try almost anything. I spent so much time trying to find that right product...and especially one that wouldn't break the bank to get the smile I wanted to achieve.


When Smile Brilliant reached out and asked if I would be willing to give their whitening process a try, I felt I had nothing to lose at that point. As someone who has grown to be an avid drinker of coffee, tea, and wine I felt so much of my progress I had made of the past ten years had plateaued and I was starting to see the effects again.

One reason I fell in love with Smile Brilliant from the start, was their unique business model. So many times, the cost of getting professional teeth whitening done is so expensive due to just the visit itself - and not necessarily the whitening process. However, Smile Brilliant takes out that step, so it is SO much more affordable and your bank account will be happy.

For only the fraction of the cost, and with the ability to whiten my teeth at home during my own time I began falling in love with my whitening kit. No need for another vacation day, for yet another doctors visit was already a win for me and my busy life.


I received my whitening kit in the mail, and took impressions of my teeth so I could get my plastic retainers to begin the whitening process. If you've had braces before, you may remember how the dentist puts a mouth guard looking piece in your mouth filled with a paste that hardens to make your retainers. It's basically the same exact thing - but you just to get to do it in the comfort of your home!

I sent my impressions in, and by the next week I was already ready to start my teeth whitening. For the next several weeks, every night before bed, I would fill my custom trays with the whitening gel and let it sit for 45 minutes while I binge watched an episode of "Schitt's Creek" (please tell me I'm not the only one obsessed). I can honestly say, this is the first whitening kit that I have used where I can visibly see a difference after each whitening treatment.

After my 45 minutes was up, I would brush out the trays and fill it with (my favorite thing) the desensitizing gel. I cannot begin to emphasize enough how big of a game changer this was for me. I remember the aching, and burning feeling I would get from using whitening strips and I thought that just simply wasn't something you could escape when getting a brighter smile - but boy was I wrong. This is an absolute GAME CHANGER; check out my video below on how to apply.

I can't begin to thank Smile Brilliant enough for making me feel fearless, confident, and beautiful in my own skin through enhancing my smile.

I loved my whitening kit so much, that I partnered up with Smile Brilliant to give one of you lucky people your own kit for FREE to get your smile white before the Holidays!! Going back to see all of your family and friends - a bright smile is definitely something that can make you feel ready to take on the holiday season.
