Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Kit [Review]

A few months back, at the end of the summer actually, I came across an Instagram account that was promoting Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Kit. She posted that she had great results, showed us how white her teeth got, and how much she loved this product. It was regularly $299, but she had a coupon code making it only $29. I figured it might be too good to be true, but thought it costs the same at the drug store for these whitening kits, and this one has a custom tray. Maybe it would be better. So I ordered it online and it came within a few days.

Fast forward to now. I've had this sitting here for months, waiting to be used. I just never got around to it. Until tonight.

Above pictured is the outside of the package. I picked the "flavour" Bubble Gum. They had mint as well I believe. It doesn't matter anyway cause it just tastes like tooth whitening chemicals. It had the smell of bubble gum, but it definitely doesn't taste like it.

Inside the package you get:
- Instruction Manual
- 2 trays, one for you bottom and one for your top
- LED light
- 2 Vitamin E Q-Tips
- 2 syringes of gel
- 1 maintenance pen

So I followed the instructions by boiling water, letting it sit for 5 minutes, putting a tray in, molding it to my teeth for 12 seconds, then putting the tray into a cup of cold water. Repeated it for the next tray. Afterwards they want you to cut off parts of the tray to make it fit into your mouth better. I only cut off the tab. I took pictures of this process, but I'm not going to post them because it seems silly, and I don't want to spend too much time on this review. I wasn't impressed.

The trays barely mold to your teeth. Yeah, it gets your molars in the back of your mouth, but it doesn't suction to the front of your teeth like it says it will, which is the whole point of whitening your teeth in the first place!

I put a bit of gel in each tray (after watching a youtube video because the instructions don't explain it very well and spread it out. Put them on my teeth. Placed the LED light in front, and waited 20 minutes. It says to wait 20-30 minutes, and I was getting bored.

Once you're done you rinse off your trays with hot water, and let them air dry. Blah blah blah.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of this at all. This is mostly because of the trays. Why advertise something that doesn't work?! My teeth are streaky in places. It does whiten, but its never going to look even with these trays that don't fit properly. I googled this afterwards, and apparently I'm not the only one with this issue.

As of now, I wouldn't repurchase this kit. I'm going to give it another try tomorrow to see if I applied it wrong some how. If there's a way to just use the gel, then it will work just fine. But with the trays, it's a fail.

I should add that this is my own opinion, and I purchased this with my own money to try it out.


  1. This kit looks fantastic! thanks for the review :)

  2. This expanded interest for more white teeth has brought about a tremendous development in the quantity of teeth brightening items accessible today.
