Smile Brilliant Review + Giveaway

Hope you're ready for a fun one today. 
And also, photographs of my face that are far, far too close up. 

I have been contemplating getting my teeth whitened for some time and did speak to my dentist about it on numerous occasions. Each time, I received the same response. Yes, we can do it. But, my teeth might be ridiculously sensitive during and potentially after treatment.
Seeing as my teeth are already sensitive, the thought of this getting any worse did not appeal to me. 
So, I never did proceed with treatment. 
Here is how my teeth looked.

 When the team at Smile Brilliant reached out, I must admit, I was equally hesitant albeit curious.
I worried that the same thing would happen but was assured that although the treatment did provide results equal to those I could receive from my dentist, they would also include a desensitizing gel {an additional $19.95} in my package that would all but alleviate the issue.
I decided to give it a go.
The kit arrived quickly and I had to simply mix together a paste {see the entire process here} and send the impressions of both my upper and lower teeth into the organization.
From there, my custom fitted whitening trays arrived and I was ready to start! 

Prior to whitening, I applied the desensitizing gel for 30 minutes.
I then brushed and replaced this gel with the whitening gel and left it in place for 30 minutes, gradually working my way up in time over the next few days. 
Not kidding, my teeth looked better with the very first use.
The package recommended whitening daily for a period of 5 days, leaving the trays in place anywhere between 45 minutes and 2 hours.
I did this, in fact, I think I did a full week as I didn't leave the whitening agent on longer than 1 hour and this is how my teeth look now.

Here are a few things that I really like:
1. Although the difference is quite significant, my teeth still look natural. Like they're mine and not George Hamilton's.
2. There was NO sensitivity at all. Now, I did try to use just the whitening gel once without the prior step of de-sensitizing {#lazy} and DEFINITELY felt the difference. Not awful but also not pleasant.
3. The entire process from start to finish? Ridiculously fast. My completed trays received about a week after I sent them in and I am Toronto based. Not bad at all.
4. The price. The kit I used retails for $119.95; I won't tell you what my dentist quoted me. 
And I won't tell him about Smile Brilliant.
Unless he asks.
