Rated 2 out of 5 Stars

Brilliant For A Smile To Dazzle is a home teeth whitening kit which contains a mild peroxide-free formula that promises to whiten your teeth in a safe and gentle way. The product is marketed by the well-known UK-based Lornamead group.

There are four different teeth-whitening products in the Brilliant range:

Non- Peroxide Formula

While carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the whitening agents used by dentists for in-surgery whitening as well as in most over-the-counter whitening kits, the new EU directive has put limitations on their use in teeth whitening kits for home use.

Instead of peroxide, the whitening gel in Brilliant whitening kits is sodium hydroxide (or chlorine dioxide) which removes surface staining in a gentle way, is safe for the enamel and, in most cases, does not cause irritation of the gums.

The whitening gel also includes: aqua, glycerine, carbomer, PVP, polysorbate-20, pentasodium triphosphate, aroma, citric acid, methylparaben, and limonene.

How It Works

Each Brilliant whitening kit contains a tube of whitening gel, an accelerator stick that looks like a whitening pen, a tube of whitening toothpaste and a pair of mouth trays.

The first thing you should do is to brush each tooth separately with the accelerator stick being careful not to touch the teeth with your tongue as the saliva can easily remove the accelerator substance.

After that you should fill the mouth trays with the whitening gel and place them carefully over your teeth. Instruction say to leave the mouth trays on for about 5-10 minutes, then you should remove them and finish your whitening session by brushing your teeth with the whitening toothpaste that is provided. Rinse your mouth thoroughly and repeat the whitening treatment after 24 hours.

If your teeth are slightly stained, the one-week Brilliant kit is probably the most suitable for you. However, if your teeth have deep stains after years of smoking and drinking tea or coffee, you’d better opt for the two-week kit.

Brilliant Advantages

Brilliant Disadvantages


Most customers who have used the Brilliant teeth whitening kit don’t seem especially happy with the results. It seems that the product was effective only for those users whose teeth were mildly discoloured.

Generally, peroxide teeth whitening products seem to be far more effective than those containing sodium hydroxide. However, if your teeth are slightly stained and you would like to try an inexpensive home teeth whitening kit, Brilliant may be a good choice.

Our advice is to avoid it if you are fussy with tastes as several users found they could not stand the taste of the gel when it leaked into their mouth or when they removed the mouth trays. Also, avoid it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and don’t give it to children who are under the age of 14.
