My Sexy Hubby, Smile Brilliant and a Giveaway!

My husband is a sexy individual. I know, I know- any lady is going to say that about her hubby but mine’s definitely a catch. I’m told this all the time. Between you and I internet, I’m not sure if women say this to compliment me because he’s pretty or to insult me, suggesting I’m not. Either way, if he were a president he’d be Baberaham Lincoln and I’m pleased to have slapped my brand on this sweetass breeding stud.


Whether or not he’s fighting fires, being about 6 years younger, out sick on the couch (sleeping with our kitty), playing games with our son or blowing out recent birthday candles…he’s nice looking…even in a Leafs jersey -_-


I say these things about him, cat call the guy all the time and show him off (like above) whenever I can but he still deals with little things that make him feel self-conscious. Like any attractive person, he complains about things that he sees as “flaws” that aren’t typically noticed, cited or discussed by anyone but him. As a gal who thinks he’s gorgeous, I find his insecurity utterly ridiculous but I support my husband in all of his self-improvement goals and wishes. One of those was to have whiter teeth, like he used to when we first got together and before he started hauling long hours and surviving on coffee in order to support our family of 6. We aren’t smokers and he takes fairly good care of his teeth but he refuses to oil pull with me and he will skip a brush if he falls asleep early at night on the couch. The poor guy works like a dog and can’t be faulted for the neglect. As a result though, his pearly whites were less than pearly and not exactly white. Although he’s not a vain person, he has complained about his “dull” teeth after viewing family photo and has felt bad about this one thing for a long while.

Luckily, I had the opportunity to partner up with Smile Brilliant for this review, who have also sponsored a fantastic GIVEAWAY for my readers today and I will let you know about that in just a second. Teeth whitening has taken off in the last few years, with white strips becoming popular, toothpastes focusing on stain removal and dentists offering the service almost anywhere. The at-home teeth whitening kit, however, is often neglected, feared or too expensive to use. The Smile Brilliant system is actually fairly simple and is hundreds of dollars cheaper than the option offered by dentists, even though it’s the same as the professional teeth whitening process. Here is what my hubby’s complimentary Smile Brilliant review kit looks like;


The Smile Brilliant kit included trays in which to make a cast of his mouth, the peroxide and desensitizing gels, the full instructions and a return envelope for once we had taken an imprint of his teeth.


It’s a fairly easy process, in which you mix the above two pastes together, slap the gunk into the mouth guard and bite down on that for a minute.


Then you take the mouth guard out and let the cast set. After the impressions harden, you pop the trays into the envelope, send it back to Smile Brilliant and wait for your custom whitening tray to arrive. Return shipping is fairly quick and the postage is included for all US residents. International users are welcome- we just have to pay to send our trays in and our expense was minimal, around $7. The Smile Brilliant staff is fantastic where this whole process is concerned, giving very detailed instructions and providing excellent support if it’s required. We found the customer service to be great and their response/turnaround time to be incredibly quick too.

I was really impressed with the tray aspect of the Smile Brilliant kit, as Bear’s got one slightly crooked tooth in the front that sticks out just the slightest bit more than his other ones- whenever he uses whitening strips, he doesn’t get even coverage because of this and ends up with discolouration in only one spot. The custom fitted trays hug each individual tooth and ensure even distribution of the peroxide gel. You apply a “string” of the gel along the tray (which helps to get the cracks in between your teeth) and are supposed to wear the trays every day for a week, for one to three hours. Bear was not able to do that, due to his level of tooth sensitivity, and needed to take a day or two break in between sessions, even though he used the desensitizing gel. He said it’s a lot to get used to and he had some gum irritation when first using the kit, which he hated, but he said it was well-worth it in the end.

Bear only had to whiten a few times before reaching his desired results and, I’m not sure if you can tell from the pictures below, there is a HUGE difference in his smile!

Teeth Whitening

Before whitening, after two sessions and his end results.

His smile became significantly whiter, the spaces between his teeth are no longer stained and I’ve started staring at them again when he talks, as I used to have a real thing for his mouth that I hadn’t realized we lost. We were incredibly impressed with the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system and I think, in the above photo, you can tell that the last picture is a genuine, happy smile due to the results my hubby achieved with the kit. More than just the change in his teeth, Smile Brilliant helped to change his confidence and he’s been flashing a devilish grin far more often. He feels good, knowing that he looks good, and that’s why I’m so pleased to be able to pass on one of these kits to one lucky reader! If you are too excited about the idea of a whiter smile and don’t want to wait, trying Smile Brilliant is risk free because they offer a 100% money back guarantee. You can find the details about that on their site, which you can check out here.

      We were really nervous about it, thinking he could end up with white spots on his teeth or something a complete mess.
      I’m so happy with how his teeth look and, considering I caught him checking them out in the mirror today, I think he is too 😛

  1. Jacqui says:

    I wish I could’ve seen a pic of him in his leafs jersey with one of those trays!! That would have been awesome 😉
    I have veneers, otherwise, I’d be allllll over this product!

    • Alysia from My Domestic Dish says:

      I lucked out 😛
      He was firefighting, with the City Of Toronto- that’s what he’s trained for, as a first responder.
      Now, however, he’s a tool and die maker. He switched and went into the family business, although he actually quit at his step-father’s shop to move to one closer to home (more affordable area for us to live).
      So…he can wear the hat, firefighting pants and suspenders for me OR come home from work greasy, black and dirty in blue jeans and a tight tshirt. Who needs Christian Grey?! lol

  2. Terri Ramsey Beavers says:

    Oh wow, the smile brilliant product really made a difference in your hubs teeth. I didn’t realize that it could turn teeth so white. I guess I mistakenly thought that kind of white could only be achieved professionally.

  3. Megan Elford says:

    I’m always hesitant to spend money on teeth whitening because I’m never sure what the results will be. This system seems to work wonderfully though! Thank your hubby for being the guinea pig for us!

  4. Ashley says:

    I’ve been researching tooth whitening products to get ready for my upcoming wedding, and Smile Brilliant has come up time and again as one of the best. I have to do a little more research on the ingredients, but so far this definitely sounds like the brand to go with!

    • Alysia from My Domestic Dish says:

      Ohhh yes! If you’re not wanting to go the dentist route (and with wedding expenses already adding up, who would?!) then this would definitely be a fantastic option. As you can see, the results are pretty good…. plus, it’s very easy to do and impossible to screw up.

  5. Stephanie of The TipToe Fairy says:

    My husband is so self conscious of his teeth, He smoked for about 15 years, but he quit 6 years ago. However, he’s convinced his teeth are yellow. I don’t see it, but I think he would love a product like this, and it might even make him feel confident to smile. Great review!

    • Alysia from My Domestic Dish says:

      Oh, well there you go! I know first-hand what it’s like to have a hubby who’s got those kinds of small hang-ups. I’ve been so pleased with the results- not even because his teeth are so much whiter but because he’s happy to show them off more now! 😛
      It’s nice to see him smiling confidently.
      Make sure both you AND the hubby enter into the draw! I would love to see one of you guys win it.

  6. Rebecca Swenor says:

    This is so sweet that you say and show all these adorable things about your husband. I so would love to try this product ever since I have heard about it. It looks like it did an amazing job on his teeth for sure.

  7. eliz frank says:

    First off, let me just say that your hubby is model gorgeous hot! He should do modeling on the side to showcase his good looks… His teeth look great too. 🙂

  8. Jaime Nicole says:

    I can definitely see that your hubby’s teeth are whiter! I would love to get this for myself – I drink a lot of coffee!

  9. Angelic Sinova says:

    Wow, what a difference! I’ve tried a few teeth whitening products before and am always in the market for trying new ones! I’ll definitely have to check the Smile Brilliant kit out <3

  10. Breanna says:

    Baberham Lincoln! Haha! That made me giggle out loud! I have been really wanting to try a teeth whitening product. Maybe I will give this one a try!

    • Alysia from My Domestic Dish says:

      Haha I bug him with stuff like that all the time 😛
      The Wayne’s World “schwing!” is common- poor guy lol

      Well, at least if you go with Smile Brilliant you’ve got a money back guarantee! Here’s hoping you don’t need to spend any money though and can just win it FREEEE!! 😛
