Teeth Whitening for Coffee Drinkers

Growing up, one of the things I was most self conscious about would have to be my smile. I started drinking coffee at a young age and I also had what I found out were called calcium deposits in my front teeth that made them look discolored. Once I got into middle school all my school pictures included a toothless, closed mouth smile because I was afraid of being teased.

I have never had braces and realize I could have had it way worse, but middle school and high school led to me being very self conscious about a lot of things including my smile. I used to get called things like "Crayola teeth" and I never let it show that it really hurt me, but when your a teenage girl of course those sorts of things hurt. Flash forward to now, being over 10 years out of high school and before I started whitening my teeth, I was still pretty self conscious about my smile. If you look at my Instagram you most likely won't find a lot of pictures showing my teeth in the smile, so when Smile Brilliant contacted me to do a collaboration it took a lot of consideration, because I knew that I would have to open my mouth and smile for pictures.

Let start by saying, I still drink a large ice coffee everyday and tend to be an avid red wine drinker on occasion, so let's just point out I don't have the whitest of teeth. However, the Smile Brilliant team were so kind and helpful and always had my back when I had any question or concern. The entire process of whitening was super easy and I didn't even have to leave the comfort of my own home! In the past the only whitening products I have tried are Crest whitening strips, and lets just say I didn't get along with those. I hated how they slid around and you couldn't even move your mouth with out the goopy strips falling off. What really won me over for Smile Brilliant was their whitening trays, no more slippery whitening strips (it was so easy to keep the tray in the only down side was a little drool, but who cares about that when you end with white teeth.). It's also a big plus that their products are completely vegan!

A whitening kit was sent to me along with putty and a mouth piece to create the molding of my teeth. Once I received my kit I followed the super easy instructions and created the putty mold of my teeth. I sent it to the Smile Brilliant lab, and in less than two weeks I had my whitening trays, and was ready to start my whitening journey.

The best part about this whitening kit is that its so easy to fit into everyday life whether you have all the time in the world or only an hour before bed while your catching up on your favorite shows. You can keep the whitening gel in your mouth from 45 minutes to 3 hours, its all about preference, how white you need or want to go, tolerance, and the time you have. After using the whitening gel, the kit also includes a desensitizing gel that helps reduce irritation and any sensitivity you may have to the whitening product. The whitening trays are so easy to clean and come with a case to keep everything hygienic. The syringes that carry the gels make it super simple to place the gel in the whitening trays and it keeps the product fresh. Each syringe has at least 3-4 applications and can last at room temperature for a year and in the fridge for up to 2 years! So this would also be great to keep to top up or prepare for a special event you may have.

I did experience some sensitivity at first but nothing to write home about. Overall, the experience was very positive and I could not recommend it enough. I am so happy with my results and will continue to whiten my teeth and even top up when I have special events. Depending on how stained your teeth are it can take anywhere from 7-12 applications to get full whitening results, but once again it all depends on consistency and the time you are willing to dedicate to the process. I'm so thankful to Smile Brilliant for allowing me to review their product and I'm more confident in my smile now than ever. If you have any questions about the kit and my experience please feel free to ask in the comments or you can send me an email at

My before and after pictures are as follows and you can definitely see a difference in the overall brightness and white color of my teeth!
