A Mama’s Guide To Whitening + A Giveaway

I was provided the product for review purposes only. I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own. Please read my disclosure policy for more details.

I have never been a huge wine or coffee drinker but after becoming a mom (so cliche I know) some things have changed. Wine and coffee have recently been my calling. That is since I’ve had a toddler. I now notice myself consuming things that will actually stain my teeth. Before my pregnancy I had the best teeth. They weren’t sparkling white but they were pretty great. In Hispanic culture they say when your pregnant with a boy they suck everything out of you. I sure didn’t believe them.

Then a couple months after having my son I noticed a slight decline in the look of my teeth. If you’re a busy mom or a stay at home mom you know how things can get. You’re always on the go. Even when I go to the dentist, the dentist and hygienist say you have the best teeth please take care of them. A is now three years old and it’s like a switch went off.

Did you know dental health is factors are hereditary? Also bread, chips (which are bad for you I know) crackers etc turn into carbs. I had no idea until a couple years ago. Now that he’s almost four making sure I instill the right factors of dental health in him early I figure I should be going in the same direction.

I always wanted to try teeth whitening but had no idea where to start other than toothpaste that included the teeth whitener. I never realized, its not the same. When I heard about Smile Brilliant I had to try it. They even work great with sensitive teeth.

Smile Brilliant is an easy at home teeth whitening system. For someone that is super busy this is a great option.
You will receive a kit which includes:
● Step by step guide on how to make your impressions.
● Impression Trays
● 3 sets of each of: Catalyst & Base paste
● Prepaid Postage & Envelope
Teeth Whitening gel & Desensitizing gel
It doesn’t take that long for your impressions to be made. Once you receive them you can start
whitening right away. The directions state to use the system at night for optimum results.
Everyone’s schedule is different. I noticed I got better results if I used them in the morning than
at night. I’m home during the morning by myself so I was more than likely to remember than
when my toddler was rubbing on my leg every few minutes.

All in all they’re super simple to use. I tried to use the strips before and it was a mess. The trays
work to whiten all your teeth. It doesn’t hurt to use the trays and you can whiten until your
desired strength. The one thing I love is how they are customized they are.
So here’s the moms who are super busy or need something for their own time but also need something easy. The best part is Smile Brilliant is letting me host a giveaway and give a discount for all my readers in the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia. You will get to win your own kit which is valued at $139.

    I’ve heard of this system. It would be so much easier having custom trays than those icky strips.

      Definitely. I’ve tried the strips and they don’t cover all your teeth like the trays do.

    That system looks great and your teeth look so good. I will consider this because my teeth need something.

      Thanks so much. My teeth weren’t super white to start off but it definitely did help out. I would definitely invest in it for the future.

    I haven’t heard of this system before! I love home use systems because they help me save so much time! I’d love to try this one as well.

      Definitely. You can even wear them while you run errands so they are definitely worth your while.

    So glad they have home treatments. This is a great way to get our teeth really white at an affordable price.

    This sounds amazing and it would be nice to give it a try. I’ve never heard of this brand before but I’ve seen similar products in the past.

  8. June 11, 2017 / 12:30 AM

    I’ve heard of Smile Brilliant and I’ve always been curious! It’s nice to see that people are loving it, maybe it’s about time I gave it a try.

  9. June 11, 2017 / 8:48 AM

    This looks amazing and I’m needing something like that. I’ve been curious about things like this. Great review.

      It’s definitely a great whitening system.

  10. June 11, 2017 / 6:24 PM

    I’ve used a few different home teeth whitening products but never this one. I definitely should check it out because it looks like you had a great experience.

  11. June 11, 2017 / 7:12 PM

    That definitely looks like a great whitening system. I may give it a shot!

  12. June 11, 2017 / 8:04 PM

    This looks like a great whitening system. I can’t stand the strips. I’m wondering if I could get past my ridiculously sensitive gag-reflex enough to use the trays.

    • Jalisa
      June 11, 2017 / 8:08 PM

      I have a wicked bad gag reflex and the trays actually didn’t make me gag.

    DANG GIRL! Your results are amazing!!!! Your teeth were pretty white before but wow!!! Looking good!

  15. June 12, 2017 / 5:49 AM

    This sounds brilliant. I have always had white but lately they are turning colour because of the coffee I ma now chugging. Looks like the product does work going by how your teeth now look!

    • Jalisa
      June 15, 2017 / 9:48 PM

      I can totally relate. I’ve been drinking coffee way too much lately.

  16. June 12, 2017 / 8:33 AM

    Your teeth look great! I need to try this, my teeth are so bad from coffee over the years!

  17. June 12, 2017 / 9:06 AM

    This system seems 100 times better than those white strips. I hated the strips and how slimy they felt.

      They really do. They get all your teeth. Instead of just your front or back they get the in betweens too.
