I'm going to be upfront and honest about this review folks-you WILL NOT find a better, easier, or more comfortable teeth whitening process or product than this!! I've tried all the home teeth whitening products; strips, pens, trays, etc. and never found one that was actually comfortable. Sure, some of them worked better than others, but I'll be honest. Usually the ones that worked best were the trays, and they weren't just uncomfortable-they hurt after just a few minutes of use! When Smile Brilliant contacted me about a review of their product, I thought, "Sure, yet another experience with painful trays to get whiter teeth." However, when I looked at what they actually offer, I was excited!
See, Smile Brilliant is the only place I know of that offers custom-fit trays for teeth whitening. These are literally the only comfortable way I have found to whiten teeth, and it actually gets results! I love using the pens, but many of those are just for touch-ups; it doesn't actually work the way a tray does. Anyways, I'm getting ahead of myself. I received the Tray Creation Kit from Smile Brilliant, which includes everything you need to make a mold of your teeth. It's a very easy and simple process; just combine a base paste and catalyst paste, place the resulting putty in a tray, and press into your teeth. This has to stay in for 2 minutes, then harden for 10 minutes. Repeat for the lower teeth, let the molds harden, and mail them back in the included envelope.
Within a week of sending the molds in I received my custom trays, and was ready to start the actual whitening process. The kit included desensitizing gel, which you use prior to whitening, and ensures there's no discomfort. Apply a thin layer to the trays, and leave in for about 20 minutes. After removing the trays, lightly brush your teeth, then proceed with the whitening. Again, apply a "string" of the gel in the trays, insert and leave in for a minimum of 20 minutes, and up to 3 hours. I have been leaving the trays in for about 20-30 minutes, and found that works quite well.
