So I am probably an anomaly as a mommy who does not really rely on coffee to keep her sanity. But my husband is an absolute coffee addict, so when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to collaborate, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for him to try out an at-home teeth whitening system since he has had quite a few not-so-successful attempts in the past to whiten his teeth!

Past Experience

My husband’s past experience with at-home teeth whitening had not been successful as there was always something or the other that lacked in the process and the results were always dismal, to say the least. For example, he started with over-the-counter whitening toothpaste. The marketing material promised two shades lighter by the end of the tube, but the difference had been barely noticeable!

He advanced from the whitening toothpaste to the famous Crest Whitestrips. The results were better, but getting contact between the strip and your teeth was an issue.

Experience With Smile Brilliant

This is where Smile Brilliant excels in two major ways:

  1. It allows for optimal contact between your teeth and the whitening gel for an extended period of time.
  2. It allows you to control how much gel you use. This can be a real issue for people with sensitive teeth, as the run-of-the-mill whitening strips do not offer that option at all.


The process seemed overwhelming at first but the instructions were crystal clear. You have to create dental impressions of the top and bottom teeth and mail them out in a prepaid envelope. Surprisingly it was pretty easy to create the impressions and barely took less than 20 minutes!

The actual fun begins once you receive your trays that are an exact model of your teeth! My husband was extremely impressed with the quality of the custom-fitted trays and it only took about 3 days to get them back.

Then it was just a matter of adding the Professional Teeth Whitening Gel to his tray and off he went to whitening his heart out. 🙂 An average person needs at least 7 to 14 treatments to remove all stains. My husband particularly loved the Desensitizing gel as it really helped in reducing sensitivity. Doing the whitening without the de-sensitizing gel can make your teeth sensitive very quickly.


My husband dedicated an hour or so in the evenings for teeth whitening twice a week. He usually put on the gel trays while listening to his work call, and 60 minutes later he would swap the whitening gel with the de-sensitizing one. Dedicating this much time was doable for him and easily fit into his busy routine and the end-results have been well worth it!

For someone who drinks 4-5 cups of coffee a day, Smile Brilliant turned out to be a Godsent product. Over a span of 8 treatments the stains completely disappeared and the teeth appeared 3 shades lighter. Initially, he was concerned about the sensitivity, but that was not an issue at all.

The overall experience has been very positive and he can’t wait to keep up with Smile Brilliant’s Teeth Whitening routine without having to give up on coffee!
