The Best At-Home Teeth Whitening Routine + A Giveaway

September 16, 2019

I like coffee and wine – a lot.  Because of this, I gave up on the idea of having perfectly white teeth for a good while.  I used teeth-whitening strips here and there, but my extremely sensitive teeth couldn’t ever let me get on board with a full-time routine, especially with having such a busy lifestyle. But I found the best at-home teeth whitening routine and I’m so excited to share it with you guys.   

When Smile Brilliant reached out to me about a partnership, and I learned more about their product, I was so excited to try their at-home teeth whitening kit.  It took just one week to notice the progress.  I was extremely happy when I started noticing my teeth getting whiter, but I never thought it would be so apparent that other people could tell the difference.  So, when someone asked me how I got my teeth so white just a few days after trying it, it felt SO good! 

How it Works

Smile Brilliant makes teeth whitening so easy! I’ll be honest, it used to always feels like another chore and that’s probably the sole reason I haven’t had success with teeth whitening until now.

Their instructions are clear and the process is so simple you can whiten your teeth anytime and anywhere – while you workout, you can take it with you when you travel, or while you watch TV or read before bed.


The first step of the Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit is to make your own impressions that are customized to your teeth.  This is my favorite part about the Smile Brilliant process because I always felt that I had areas on my teeth that were overlooked when using teeth whitening strips

The instructions are very simple and only takes about 10 minutes to do. Once you send your impressions back in the prepaid envelope that they provide for you, it takes just a few extra days to receive your whitening trays.

Teeth Whitening Gel:

Once you get your whitening trays back from Smile Brilliant, the next step is to begin the whitening process.  

  • Before applying the teeth whitening gel, simply brush your teeth with only water.  
  • Next, apply a thin layer of the teeth whitening gel on your whitening trays.  
  • Be sure you don’t use the entire syringe of the gel.  Each syringe should account for 3-4 whitening sessions.  
  • Place each tray on the corresponding row of teeth, and leave untouched.  
  • Once applied, you can leave the trays on anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours.  Keep in mind that it’s not recommended to whiten throughout the night.  

Desensitizing Gel

The desensitizing gel has been such a lifesaver for my sensitive teeth.   

As I mentioned above, I’ve really struggled with tooth sensitivity, which is why I’ve also struggled to find an at-home teeth whitening routine that doesn’t hurt and provides results.  For people like me, this gel is a game changer!

  • Once you’ve completed your teeth whitening session, brush your teeth with a standard toothpaste (avoid a teeth whitening toothpaste). 
  • Next, apply a thin layer of the desensitizing gel to your whitening trays like you did with the teeth whitening gel.  

Pro tip: If you struggle with sensitivity, I suggest leaving the gel on longer than suggested (the suggested time frame is 15-20 min; I recommend leaving it on for 30 min to 1 hour if you can).  

I also suggest using the desensitizing gel in between whitening sessions to reduce sensitivity.  This helped me so much and my teeth are actually less sensitive now than they were before I started using Smile Brilliant.
