How I Whiten My Teeth | Smile Brilliant


6 May 2016, Friday

Look what came in the mail yesterday! The Smile Brilliant Tray Creation Kit! 

I'm really excited about this simply because I've never tried teeth whitening kit before. I'm one of those who find going to a dentist for whatever reason intimidating. I guess they never really tried to take that fear out of you when you're in primary school. I'm pretty sure all the kids have had the experience of lining up outside the dentist office, waiting to go in for a dental check. Woo so terrifying. 

That was a little ramble but anyways, going to the dentist to have my teeth whitened was never an option I would consider, considering that fact that I'd like to stir clear of the dentist office at all cost and it's insanely expensive. Google search tells me that it typically falls in the range of  $400 to $500 locally. 

But who doesn't want to have a nice set of white teeth? (ramble #2) One of the things I dislike about being in Singapore is the lack of countless foreign brands in store. In the States, going to the Drugstore is like going into a treasure trove. You can find pretty much anything there. And my point of saying this is that you could easily get a DIY-at-home teeth whitening kit if you put your heart into finding it in the Drugstore. Not in Singapore. 

So my point again is, you have to find them online and I might have just found my future birthday present to friends, Christmas gift & anniversary gift to Jasper. Haha. 


The Real Deal

Since I've never tried any other whitening kit before, it would be unfair to say that Smile Brilliant's kit is the best. But it definitely works. How about that. :)

For what it's worth, you get a custom fitted teeth whitening tray that you get to keep permanently. 

This is what you get when you make your order. 
  • You have 3 sets of impression material to make your own dental impression. You have the third set just in case you did it wrong the first time. 
  • 2 Impression trays for upper and lower dental impressions
  • 3 whitening gel syringes 


Let's talk about price point because it matters.

This kit cost USD$119.95 and shipping cost USD$29.90. So to have them in your hands, it will cost  about SGD203. For those of you who are slightly price-sensitive, this is honestly a really good deal as I mentioned that a whitening treatment will cost more than $400.

It's a DIY-at-home kit which means you don't have to make a trip down to the dentist to have your teeth whitened. Instead, you could stay home and have them done at your own leisure.

You get a custom fitted whitening tray that you could reuse and if you need to replenish your whitening gel syringes, they are readily available on the website as well. 


19 July 2016

This post is really a long time coming. I had received my impression during end of May and here I am in mid-July, completing this review. 

The reason why I took this long is mainly because of my sensitive gums. After my first treatment, I had ulcers on my upper gums and sides of my cheeks. BUT that's only because I had used too much whitening gel the first time. 

I realized that the trick was really to use the whitening gel sparingly because you only need that little for it to take effect.


First treatment definitely felt like a teething period. Unsure of what to do in the beginning and what to expect. 

As you can see, after the first treatment, there is spots of white stains on my yellow teeth.

For me, the process of whitening is slow and gradual. I had them in my mouth for one hour for each treatment. (again because of my sensitive gum) 

I would also use the desensitizing gel after my treatments to rehydrate my teeth. 


It was only until I finished my first whitening gel syringe did I see visible results. 

Yes, my teeth are still slightly yellow but they started to whiten visibly!

Final Result:

If you do a quick scroll upward or slide upwards if you're using your mobile phones, you'll see the difference before and after the treatment.
