A smile is worth a thousand words.
When you present yourself to the world with a smile you appear happier, healthier, and are more approachable as a person.
No matter how flawless your skin may be, no matter how on-point your makeup, if you approach the world with a frown, you are not doing yourself justice.
Now I know that not everyone is proud of their smile.
Some people have crooked teeth and need dental care. Others do not have pearly whites and wish their smile was more brilliant.
While I can’t help when it comes to dental care, I can help with your teeth being whiter, brighter, and appearing brilliant!

Before I tell you about my best beauty secret, let’s take a look at a few images.
The following photos were taken at the same time of day in the same lighting, with no filters.
I was not wearing makeup and had not done a thing with myself as far as my hair or other “self-care” routines.
This is me in the most natural and unattractive form possible, first not smiling, then with a smile.
All side by side images were taken before getting back on the Smile Brilliant System.
I think we can agree, I look a lot better in the photo where I am smiling!
No, it was not easy for me to post these unfortunate photos of myself but the reality is, stripped down, we all look better with a smile!
I think I have seen mug shots nicer than the photo on the left!
On the right, however, my inner light shines through. Now to just get these teeth white again!
Looking a little better on this day and feeling a little better knowing I will be back on my Smile Brilliant regimen soon.
Trust me I was not trying to look horrible in the before pics. Just my face relaxed, not intentionally frowning.
Now, who is with me about looking better with a smile?
Try it for yourself with your own camera!
Here I am wearing makeup from the night before and still look prettier with that smile!
Please don’t tell me that my embarrassing photos mean nothing.
Keep reading and learn how I turned this smile bright white and ready to present to the world again.
It’s a fact: No one is immune to yellowing teeth. What we eat, drink, and age plays a role in staining. Some medications stain our teeth too!
Removing stains can take years off our looks and improve our confidence.
I had a friend with rather crooked teeth who was not proud of her smile. Even without dental work having her teeth whitened made her far more proud of her smile. She smiled a lot more often after using the system!
What I love most about Smile Brilliant is that I can use it right in my home, on my time and my terms. No visits to the dentist!
Way more effective than strips, the trays are fit to your mouth, and they do not slip like strips!
Smile Brilliant is a made in the USA company – another thing to be proud of.
Since my first time using Smile Brilliant, they have made some changes to improve their brand although if you ask me there was nothing wrong with it before!
I loved my first experience but there is always room for improvement. That is what is cool about Smile Brilliant they care and make changes when needed!
My results: White, bright, teeth that I am proud to show off!
The images below were taken after using Smile Brilliant for 3 weeks on a consistent basis as recommended in the instructions that came with the system.
Now my results are fantastic but I am going to tell you a secret.
Even though I used my kit religiously, I still drink coffee, I eat berries every morning, and I enjoy red wine.
All of these things stain the teeth!
If you refrain from doing those things or do not do these things, to begin with, your results could be even better than mine!
Granted we are all different so results can vary, but I was no saint!
What are you waiting for?
It’s time to show the world your brightest smile!
