At Home Teeth Whitening for Coffee Stains

…You’ll find that life is still worthwhile if you just smile… -Charlie Chaplin

Hi Socialites! I am sooo excited to share today’s post with all of you! I have discovered the holy grail product in my quest to blinding white teeth: Smile Brilliant!

Before I get into how amazing this teeth whitening system truly is, maybe it’s best if I start from the beginning…

I’ve always loved my smile, and it’s typically considered to be my best feature. I started off the same as any little girl: Slightly buck toothed with a not-quite-so Lauren Hutton gap. Fast forward to 3rd grade when I had to get braces due to my wisdom teeth coming in super early. After years of enduring braceface jokes and picking the remains of Jolly Ranchers out of my wires, I was left with the straightest, whitest, most golly-wow smile this side of the Mississippi!

Unfortunately, the workforce came calling, and with it came copious amounts of coffee and herbal tea. You know, just to make it through the day. Before I realized it, my teeth were so stained I couldn’t even wear certain shades of lipstick! *cue Southern girl pearl clutching* I began trying all the usual whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes, and they would help a little, but my teeth were still stained, and the formulas weren’t strong enough to overcome my daily latte habit. When Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try out their T3 Sensitive System, I jumped at the offer! After all, Smile Brilliant is a dentist grade whitening service for under $200! When the kit arrived in the mail, I was super excited, albeit a teeny bit skeptical. Would this product work?

It absolutely does!!!!

Getting Started with Smile Brilliant

Before I got my T3 Sensitive System, I answered a few questions about my dental history, and about 3 days later, my Smile Brilliant package was waiting for me when I got home from work. The kit includes 3 whitening syringes, 3 desensitizing syringes, and the base and catalyst to prepare your molds.

I followed the easy-to-follow instructions for preparing my teeth molds for the custom trays (I totally felt like a dentist y’all!), and shipped my molds back to Smile Brilliant in the provided postage paid envelope. The entire process was super easy, and will make you feel real accomplished!

The Whitening Process

I received my custom trays about two weeks after I sent my molds in, and they were a perfect fit! The trays are made from a clear, soft, flexible material that is comfortable when worn.

The whitening process is super easy: You follow the preliminary instructions included in your kit, and then squeeze the whitening gel into your custom fit trays.

Wearing my whitening trays

The trays fit so well, and are comfortable enough for you to go about your evening as usual while wearing them. I typically pop mine in after dinner, and wear them before my bedtime shower, and while watching The Golden Girls until bedtime. (Dont act like y’all don’t love Sophia!) I try to leave the whitening formula on for 2-3 hours. The trays ensure that the formula stays in place on your teeth, and covers all surfaces, as opposed to strips which only cover a few teeth at a time, or whitening toothpastes, which are rinsed off before they can do any good.

Even though it’s designed for sensitive teeth, the formula can sting a bit if you use too much gel, but the sensation disappears after about 10 minutes. The kit also comes with desensitizing gel that you use in your trays for 20 minutes after the whitening process.

The Results

My teeth are much whiter, and the staining in between my teeth has greatly improved!

I whitened for 2 weeks before taking my after shots, and as you can see, I got “brilliant” results. I am amazed at how the stains in between my teeth have lifted, and I can’t wait to see how much whiter my teeth get with continued use!

A few things to consider

I truly feel like I got great results with the T3 Sensitive System, and I encourage all of you to try it for yourself. With that said, your whitening experience may differ from mine. I still continued drinking coffee throughout this process, so if you’re not a coffee drinker, you will probably see results a lot sooner.

For those with sensitive teeth, I did not experience increased sensitivity after using this product. I did have slight tingling when I first began the process, but it was because I was using too much whitening gel in the trays!

And now for the best part!

  1. I used this, but I think in my time it had a different name, I never asked which brand was that. But it truly works and does wonder. And I was not a coffee drinker that much, I seen the results much sooner. So yeahh these are amazing, but it is costly and you have to do this regular wearing mouth guard is exhausting. But yes, No Pain, No Gain I guess.

  2. Looks really good girl!!!! I know my coffee has done a number!!! Entered, fingers crossed!!

  3. Wow! Awesome results. You have inspired me to give this a try. I am an avid coffee drinker and recently noticed my teeth are changing as well as the rest of me as I “age”. 🙂

  4. Whoa! That stuff really worked for you – how AWESOME!!! I got my teeth “whitened” once and they looked white for about an hour and then…. They went back to normal. That being said, I have always been known for having nice white teeth without doing anything other than eating healthfully and brushing 2x a day – so I don’t think I will ever need to go back to one of those places (good thing they just invited me to try out the service)!

  5. That is an amazing difference. I have too many fake teeth to use this but my son has been wanting to try something so this may work for him.

  6. Now this is what I am talking about, I can actually see a huge difference. My teeth are so stained from coffee that I was deciding if I should just visit the dentist for a procedure which may end up being expensive , will be looking into this.

  7. I need to try this! Your teeth look great. I don’t drink coffee, but my teeth are stained and could stand to be whitened!

  13. This is promising. i drink coffee a lot, and hope this helps me. Thanks for the info.

  14. I am a caffeine addict. I knew that it works good as a face scrub but I never knew it would work as a teeth whitening thing. I will try it.

  23. These are some great small steps one can take to brightening their smile, however for fast results I wouldn’t recommend jumping to such a professional treatment as it can be costly.

    You should always try home remedies and using safe products, read more about it here:

  24. Seems like a great product. Your before-after pictures really do tell the success of the procedure. I am a little old school and prefer to go to my dentist at Laguna Family Dentistry in Laguna Beach, CA for teeth whitening once every 6 months. I am not too comfortable with DIY things but your post encourages me to give it a shot. Thanks for sharing!
