I was asked to test this teeth whitening kit by The American Company Smile Brilliant, Although I personally didn't want to try it Mr Lavender Barn jumped at the chance, although I never felt he needed it, teeth whitening was something he had always thought about doing.
The cost at the dentist is pretty horrendous and having it done in a beauty salon didn't quite seem right to me so this was the ideal solution, a product from a company that only specialise in this area, his volunteering was really handy for me as I could monitor the process from start to finish ( not that I am bossy at all )
The Kit arrived and was seriously impressive, it contained everything needed to produce the custom made whitening trays to fit his teeth perfectly, along with the whole whitening treatment.
The first step was to take the molds of his teething using the blue paste that you will be familiar with from the dentist, this was then posted off to the States, if you are in the US the postage is pre paid by the company, it only cost me £5.00 to post it from the UK.
His whitening trays were back in no time, and we were kept informed when they received our package and again when they shipped back to us. The trays were a perfect fit, in a soft clear plastic/silicone that he said were a comfortable fit, so we were ready to try it out.
Although I didn't think his teeth were really in need of whitening he was convinced they did, so I proceeded to take his before photo. And typically he needed a shave lol.
The whitening Gel comes in a syringe which has more than one application, you don't need a lot just to run a line along the inside of each tray, he could still speak while wearing the trays (unfortunately) and in truth you couldn't even notice that they were on, we were a little nervous as there is a possibility that the whitening process can cause some sensitivity, although the company prepare for this by supplying de sensitising gel. (again in a syringe )
He kept the product on for 20 minutes as recommended for the first go, and followed with the de sensitise, he did say his teeth felt slightly on edge but nothing major, we left it a couple of days and repeated the procedure, again with no issues, you can apparently increase the time and frequency of your applications, but me being ever cautious would only be happy with 20 minute sessions. the whole process was really easy, carried out over 2 weeks and didn't cause him any problems at all.
As you can see from the after photo there is a definite improvement in the whiteness of his teeth, and to be fair look even better in real life, our camera has not done the product justice.
I do believe that if you wanted the Hollywood Ultra white smile you would definitely achieve it with this product at a really low price. The whole kit only costs $119.95 which at today's rate is £79.53, there is plenty of product for you to maintain your whiteness and additional syringes are available to buy from the company.
All in all I would say this kit is fabulous if you are even considering teeth whitening, it saves money on the cost of a traditional dentist, you can do it in the comfort and privacy of your own home, it's something you can continue to do at a low cost, and the uber whiteness can easily be achieved if that is the look you want.
