Review: Smile Brilliant Professional LED Teeth Whitening kit

I've always been terribly shy about my teeth; not only are they not straight but also it is that tinge of yellow that I can't seem to quite get rid of no matter how much dental products I tried. Yellowing of teeth is unavoidable, caused from the drinks you have and dependent on how scrupulous you are with your personal dental care. You name it, from toothpastes that claim instant whitening effects, gargling bicarbonate soda to pricey visits to the dentist that only provide a temporary solution... I've exhausted my options.


So when Smile Brilliant, A US home dental kit company approached me, I was delighted to give it a shot. And after all, its my first ever overseas sponsorship!

Nestled cosily in the box were the following item to my first step in getting a whiter and brighter smile; and the products were designed minimalist and sleek. On a totally random note, I need to add that the button of the device is abit hard to press to activate though. I found :
High Intensity LED Accelerator Light
Teeth Whitening Gel Pen – 4ml whitening pen (brush-on applicator) that contains 22% carbamide peroxide 
Lip & Cheek Protector (Upper and Lower)
Detailed Instructional Brochure 
Closer look of the LED handheld device
Seems easy enough! I took a look at the directions on how to use:

1) Twist the bottom of the whitening pen counter clockwise to squeeze the whitening gel to the tip of the pen. I had to twist this quite a few rounds til the gel surfaces as the Whitening pens are stored with the brush side up. Next, apply the whitening gel evenly onto the front surface of the front upper and lower teeth. Do make sure to spread the gel evenly and along the gum lines, not forgetting the crevices where your teeth come together. 


2) Next, hold the LED light up to your teeth and wrap your lips around the plastic guard. This is the part that tests your technique where you need to keep light from rubbing against the lip guard so as not to mess up the gel. It is recommended to leave it on for 20 - 40 mins for optimal results.
Review: It truly is as it claims, simple, easy to use and fuss-free! After brushing my teeth each night, I apply the gel on to my teeth, and let it sit for about 30 mins or so. I kid you not, you can actually notice a slight change of color from the first use. Especially noticable on a dark stain on my right canine tooth, which I reckon I earned from being such a tea fanatic. At first, you will see the white gel turn into a milky white coating on the teeth, of which the bleaching process is taking effect. My only gripe about the thing is that you have to put your face in a perpetual half-smile so as to effect the handheld LED device, which lead to mild facial cramping after.


Personally, I feel that just with the gel pen you can see some pretty amazing results, but with the LED I do feel that it helps to speed the process up.For me, I do feel a extremely slight feeling of numbness from where my tongue made contact with some stray gel, but otherwise zero irritation in the mouth. Overall, for a economical USD39.90 (shipping charge not included) to achieve similar results as my dentists', I'm definitely looking to make this a continued step in my grooming routine.

A brand that truly meets the expectations of its name. Thank you Smile Brilliant!
