Technical Details

Smile Bright White Teeth Whitening kit

The Smile Bright White Pro Teeth Whitening Kit

Full Review

Smile Bright White is another stylish and well-known teeth whitening kit on the Australian market.

The kit comes in beautiful packaging that is secure and functional.

It was delivered via express post, so I got it within a couple of days which was great!

The actual kit box was wrapped up in plastic which protected it while in transit.

I like that it came quickly and it was delivered without any issues.

Our reviewer, Leonie has tested this whitening kit for 7 days and below are her thoughts and opinions.

Leonie’s First Impressions

I liked the colours used for the packaging and thought the overlook was a more high-end design with the hard case magnetic box.

The contents were displayed well and instructions simple to follow and very clear.

It was easy to use however I would not like to leave it in any longer than 30mins as I feel time in excess of this would lead to some discomfort.

In regards to results, I could definitely notice areas of my teeth whiter (near the gum line and kinda space between the teeth) this was noticed only after 2 applications.

I think overall I was happy with the product however I didn’t notice a huge change. I would use again for the maintenance areas to keep whiter.

Packaging and Design

Smile Bright White has chosen a very appealing aqua colour as their feature on the packaging.

The colouring is around the side of the box with the small, Smile Bright White logo printed on its side.

The aqua colour makes this kit appealing

The back has some information in different languages going over what’s in the kit.

Very happy with the presentation of the Smile Bright White Kit overall, the design of the box and packaging is first-rate.

The colours that they’ve used, makes it look very professional in a dental way.

A clean and modern kit that stands out and is very attractive to the eye.

Inside the Smile Bright White Kit

This professional kit comes with the following items included:

  • 3 x 3ml Teeth whitening gel syringes
  • Silicon dual universal mouth tray
  • LED Activator Light to speed up the whitening process
  • A Shade Guide for monitoring your whitening success
  • Teeth Guide with easy to follow steps

The 3 whitening gel syringes of 3 mls each, which gives you approximately 9 dual arch applications. When I say dual arch I just mean tops and bottoms.

When you open up the kit, the 3 syringes are housed in a secure plastic cutout, above on the left-hand side of the box if you’re opening it up.

Looking at the syringes in the Smile Bright White Kit

The cutout holds the whitening gel syringes in securely

Smile Bright White has opted to provide sleek syringes, which is quite nice and makes it a bit more compact and less bulky overall.

LED Light

The LED activator has 6 LEDs and feels very secure and well made.

You’ve got to twist off the cap at the back of the LED so that you can remove a plastic tab inside, which stops the batteries from going flat.

It’s fairly simple and easy to do, just make sure you close the cap properly.

Mouth Tray

The mouth tray is also well made and has a slight design change to some others on the market.

The mouth tray that Smile Bright White offers

The silicone used for the mouth tray is of high quality

There are these lines that run horizontally across the inside of the mouth tray.

This potentially aids in the whitening process to some degree.

There are also some three little indentations, on each side of the tray, I’m guessing to help hold the tray while you bite down onto the mouth tray.

Horizontal lines are evident on the Smile Bright White mouth tray

Smile Bright White’s mouth tray is already moulded so you don’t need to put it in boiling water.

A mouth tray that you don’t need to mould to your teeth does offer less perfect fitment to your teeth and mouth.

However, having a universal type of mouth tray is super easy and much less to worry about.

The mouth tray fits nicely and securely onto the LED light.

A little bit of fiddling is needed when first using the LED and mouth tray, but it works well once you do it a few times.

The silicone material used is good quality, I feel like it’s going to be able to do multiple whitening treatments in the future.

8 Simple Instructions

The instructions are very straightforward and explain the treatment process in a clear way.

Teeth Whitening instructions by Smile Bright White

Smile Bright White’s instruction pamphlet

  • Brush your teeth and make sure they are clean
  • Remove batteries from the LED Light and remove the plastic tab, and reinsert the batteries
  • Attach and connect the mouth tray to the led light.
  • Remove the syringe cap and replace with an applicator piece.
  • Apply 0.5ml of teeth whitening gel to the top and 0.5ml to the bottom of the mouth tray. This is a thin line on the front wall of the mouthpiece.
  • Place the tray in your mouth and apply pressure to ensure even application.
  • Turn the light on and apply for between 30-45 minutes.
  • Once the time is reached, turn the light off and rinse the tray and mouth.

Smile Bright White Tips

There are a bunch of tips for success, which we’ll run through.

Tip 1

Whiten your teeth daily for 30 to 45 minutes per treatment over a period of seven days, or until your ideal shade of white is achieved.

Best results are achieved in seven to 14 days.

So with this first tip, you can stretch it out and use it up to 14 days, but you got to be mindful, if you do have any irritation or discolouration or sensitivity, just stop, take a break, and then continue later on if you feel like it.

Tip 2

Each gel syringes have up to three dual arch applications, top and bottom, additional whitening gel syringes can be purchased through their website if needed.

So there’s a limit to how much whitening you can do with this kit. So just keep that in mind, sometimes you can do a little bit less gel and that will last you longer.

The more consistent in keeping to the recommendations, you should have a whiter smile in seven days.

Tip 3

Avoid or minimise your consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, soft drinks, as these encourage staining on your teeth.

Now, this tip is very important.

If you really want the best results possible, you got to look at your diet, look at the consumption of these particular drinks and food types and just stay away from anything that can potentially create surface stains that might hinder the whitening process.

Tip 4

They recommend whitening every six to 12 months or as required to maintain a bright white smile.

Ingredients

Smile Bright White has 10 ingredients in their whitening formula:

Ingredients

  • Hydrogen Peroxide 6%
  • Glycerol
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Deionized Water
  • Triethanolamine
  • Carbomer
  • Carboxymethyl Cellulose
  • Polyvinylpyrrolidone
  • Potassium Nitrate
  • Menthol

As you can see, Smile Bright White has chosen hydrogen peroxide as the whitening agent.

6% is the most a retail product can offer and does an okay job at whitening your teeth.

The thing to remember with whitening kits that you buy online is the dental strength they state isn’t really true.

A professional in-house treatment by a dentist will use up to 25% hydrogen peroxide, as well as give you a “take-home kit’ which can be as much as 10% hydrogen peroxide.

It’s important to understand what you are buying and how long a product will provide results for.

As far as Smile Bright White is concerned, they use standard ingredients that are seen across the whitening kit market.

Results are reasonable but are limited due to the application and whitening agent % used.

Price and Value

Currently, at the time of writing this post, there is a 25% discount available when purchasing the Pro Teeth Whitening kit by Smile Bright White.

At $89 Australian, this price seems to be the average when looking at whitening kits.

Overall

The Smile Bright White Teeth Whitening Kit has everything you need to start whitening your teeth.

Our reviewer Leonie really liked the packaging, how it looked and how easy it was to use.

Instructions were clear and she never felt overwhelmed when using it.

There was some slight sensitivity while Leonie used this kit but it wasn’t much.

Value for money is reasonable and results were subtle but noticeable.

Overall, our reviewer thought it was a decent whitening kit.
