Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrip Teeth Whitening Kit
While the concept isn’t new, these whitening strips are still convenient and effective, as well as being the first and only strips accepted by the American Dental Association to bear the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Said to remove ten years of staining 25 times better than leading whitening toothpastes over four weeks, Crest 3D White Glamorous White Whitestrips are recommended for use once daily for thirty minutes to restore your pearly whites in just fourteen treatments. What’s more? They maintain a solid 4 stars on Amazon after 3,776 customer ratings.
Black Pearl Activated Teeth Whitening Powder
Boasting an impressive 4.5 stars after 1,348 Amazon customer reviews, this product easily holds its own in the best whitening category.
Comprised of activated coconut charcoal, California bentonite clay, and sodium bicarbonate, Black Pearl Activated Teeth Whitening Powder not only whitens the teeth, but also removes odor-causing bacteria, absorbs toxins, and remineralizes the teeth. Some customers have even noticed a remarkable difference after just one use.
Cali White Vegan Formula Teeth Whitening Kit with LED Light
For the super conscious dental device shopper among us, this unique whitening formula is not only made in the USA, but also kosher, vegan, cruelty-free (not tested on animals), paraben and sulfate-free, and dentist-approved.
Three custom Thermoform, BPA-free, silicone trays are included with the Cali White Vegan Formula Teeth Whitening Kit with LED Light, which users can attach to the LED accelerator for 10-30 minutes per day, resulting in 2-8 shades whiter teeth in only 7 days. Just place the properly filled trays in your mouth (one upper and one lower), and press the light button on to begin whitening.
AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit
The AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit includes a 5-bulb LED light for a boost in the whitening process, as well as a built-in timer to make sure users know when their treatment is finished.
Mouth trays are conveniently one-size-fits-all, and the 35% carbamide peroxide gel is both safe for enamel and those with heightened tooth sensitivity. Another highly-rated favorite, this kit keeps a strong 4.5 stars after 4,388 Amazon customer reviews. Use daily for 30 minutes to see results in as few as one whitening session.
GLO Science Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device
Highly popular, dentist-designed, and frequently sold out, the GLO Science Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device is considered as close to a professional whitening session as someone can purchase for use in the home.
GLO stands for Guided Light Optics, the light and heat technology combo used to enhance the whitening process, which is paired with whitening gel to deliver the treatments. Kits include the gel, GLO device, protective lip balm, mouthpiece and case, USB power cord with adapter, travel case, and user manual. Recommended treatments are split into 4 equal 8-minute sessions per day spanning a total of 3-5 days
Opalescence Go 15%
With a kit consisting of 10 upper and 10 lower trays and a whitening solution containing 15 percent hydrogen peroxide content, Opalescence Go 15% offers a less messy, more efficient alternative to at-home whitening.
This kit’s trays are conveniently pre-filled and mold to the teeth for snugger fit. Whitening takes place in just 15-20 minutes per day over 5-10 days total, and the kit doesn’t only whiten — it also strengthens tooth enamel and reduces sensitivity with fluoride and potassium nitrate. Buy it here.
Burst Coconut Whitening Strips
These innovative strips combine the whitening effect of hydrogen peroxide and the detoxifying benefits of coconut oil pulling into one cutting edge product. Both affordable and endorsed by thousands of dentists, Burst Coconut Whitening Strips carry 4.9 out of 5 stars after 20,000+ reviews on their company website. Not too shabby!
Each package includes 7 pouches and 14 strips (for a 7-day supply of both upper and lower strips), allowing for a noticeably whiter smile in just a week. Subscribe for regular 90-day deliveries or buy it once.
Zoom Nite White Teeth Whitening Gel
For those who lack the patience for daytime whitening regimens, Zoom Nite White Teeth Whitening Gel offers the perfect solution — whitening while you sleep!
Using carbamide peroxide instead of hydrogen peroxide as well as amorphous calcium phosphate, fluoride, and potassium nitrate, the formula works more gradually, allowing for overnight use. Recommended usage involves custom whitening trays to hold the solution in place and keep it off your gums while you slumber. (Trays purchased separately.) Another Amazon’s Choice favorite, this gel rates 4.3 out of 5 stars after 442 customer reviews.
Hardwood Activated Charcoal Powder
This popular tooth whitener from Zen Charcoal has many uses, including aiding digestion when taken with meals, healing burns and insect bites when applied as a salve or poultice, and detoxifying the skin by applying as a mask.
Custom prepared and milled into a certified food grade powder, this Hardwood Activated Charcoal Powder is kosher and sourced only from Eastern American hardwood trees. Suggested tooth whitening involves mixing a bit with your usual toothpaste each day for brushing. Another beloved Amazon’s Choice product, it’s ready to ship and rated 4.5 stars after 2,243 customer reviews.
Neomen Bright White Teeth Whitening Pen
For those who prefer to whiten on the go, Neomen Bright White Teeth Whitening Pen does the trick. The gel is thick enough to paint with the flexible brush tip onto teeth without a lot of dripping, and the cool mint flavor is pleasantly refreshing.
Can be used up to twice daily, requires no molds or trays, and whitens in less than a minute. Contains over 15 whitening treatments per pen. Off to a solid 5 stars after 45 reviews, these pens are a strong Amazon’s Choice contender.
