Teeth Whitening at Home: Easy and Convenient for the Modern Mom

November 27, 2018

As most of you know, us mom’s live off and live for coffee and wine aka MOM FUEL! If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have coffee in my hand everyday and I like my wine 2-3 times a week. Although it gets me through my crazy days it has done some damage on my teeth and because of that I look forward to my annual cleanings. BUT I still dread going to the dentist for many reasons like the bill hahahahaa. BUT most of all finding the right time and arranging a babysitter because kids at any type of Doctor appointments do not mix! I feel amazing after my cleaning and I try to maintain like drinking my coffee through a straw and paying close attention when brushing, but I am a mom on the go and life gets busy. Sometimes I am brushing my teeth while getting the kids dressed so my teeth don’t get the attention they deserve and by 4 months post dental cleaning my teeth are noticeably not white anymore. I know what an embarrassing thing to share but IT’S REAL LIFE! My insurance only covers one cleaning a year and then I think about that bill and all the arrangement I have to make for the kids just to see the dentist and for me it’s not worth it. So I try many little tricks that I get from Pinterest and whitening toothpaste but it is definitely not the SAME! When going to Blogger events I would try to hide my teeth when socializing or not smile in pictures because my teeth were not at its full white potential.

I recently discovered  Smile Brilliant and got super excited when they reached out to partner with me! They offer custom-fitted teeth whitening trays and professional whitening at an affordable price! I can do it at home, before events and don’t have to worry about seeing a Dentist in between cleanings  😄 

Smile Brilliant sent me the T3 Sensitive System for light stains. The kit includes 3 base paste, 3 catalyst paste which is needed to make the mold for your teeth, 3 whitening syringes and 3 desensitizing syringes.

The first thing you need to do before you can whiten is make your mold so you can make your impressions . My first try was a disaster so I am so happy they sent an extra mix! To make the mold you mix the base paste with the catalyst paste. Then you bite down to make your impressions. The directions were simple so it was super easy. After you create your impressions you send them off to Smile Brilliant and wait impatiently for your custom trays hehehehe JOKING it only took a few days but I could not wait to get started.

Whitening was an easy process. After I received my trays I got started that evening. I put the kids to sleep and got to whitening. First I brushed my teeth thoroughly with just water, then I applied a thin line of the whitening gel inside the trays along the front, dried my teeth, and put the trays on my teeth. Then I set my timer for 1 hour. Smile Brilliant recommends between 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on your sensitivity. While my teeth were whitening I was able to get on with my nightly routine. That night I sat in my bed with my headphones on and wrote a blog. Some nights I took a nice long bath, caught up on my favorite shows or helped my husband with his small business. No matter what I did, whitening was not an inconvenience.

When the timer went off it was time to prep for the desensitizing gel. I rinsed my mouth and trays, brushed my teeth with toothpaste and dried my trays. After, I applied the desensitizing gel to my trays and put them on. The desensitizing treatment only has to be worn for 15 to 20 minutes

I did this every other night and did a total of 6 treatments and voila here are my results. 


This was so life changing for me! Growing up I did not go to the dentist often so when I started going I felt it would take a miracle to get them white. After my annual cleaning I would feel amazing but after a few months it was back to how I felt before. Now I have an option in between cleanings that is affordable and I can do from home. I have confidence when socializing at blogger events and taking photos. My only complaint is some nights I wanted to stay up late eating cake with a glass of wine but realized it was whitening night hahahaha
