Crest Pro-Health Whitening Toothpaste
Whitening toothpastes are a quick pick-me up as they help reveal your whiter smile by removing stains and unhealthy buildup caused by plaque.
Pros: The toothpaste is inexpensive and convenient for daily use.
Cons: Although it helps brighten your smile, it's not the most effective way to whiten teeth. Also, the toothpaste does not use bleach, so the user will have to use the product continuously to maintain results.
Listerine Whitening Strips
One of the most popular teeth whiteners, the user places a strip over the teeth to whiten teeth on the go without worrying about cleaning up a mess afterwards.
Pros: Listerine Whitening Strips is an affordable and convenient alternative to in-office teeth whitening. The product adheres to the teeth, quickly dissolving within minutes. An added bonus: it also kills bad breath!
Cons: Even though this product is quick to use, it actually takes about two weeks to achieve results.
Rembrandt 2 Hour Whitening Kit
This whitening gel is the only over-the-counter two-hour whitening kit of its kind that provides fast results. The kit comes with two syringes one for a two-hour session and one for a touch-up. Users will sit with a gel-filled mouthguard for two hours while the gel whitens teeth.
Pros: Available for about $20, the kit is extremely affordable. It's also much more tooth enamel-friendly than previous whiteners, and it provides the best whitening results, by far.
Cons: Expect to set aside two hours out your day for this process. You will also need to wear a slightly uncomfortable mouth tray and may experience slight gum irritation afterwards.
The user will fold a whitening strip over the top and bottom teeth for 30 minutes daily until whiteness is achieved.
Pros: The wearer will see a difference within about a week of daily use. The price has come down a lot, making it affordable to those not able to have professional whitening.
Cons: Some users report over sensitivity, but the user can combat this by staggering treatments to every other day.
Listerine Whitening Rinse
This whitening products combines with mouth wash to achieve whiter teeth, fresh breath and better oral health.
Pros: This inexpensive whitener also reduces stain build-up and plaque, getting to the root of the problem. Users simply rinse with the mouthwash every day, rather than using strips or trays.
Cons: The products does not offer any long term adherence to teeth, therefore the results aren't as drastic as one might hope.
Walgreens Teeth Whitening Trays
Designed to mirror professional, in-office whitening, the kit comes with a whitening gel and trays for the user to completely surround teeth with.
Pros: Users will see results in as little as three or four days and complete results in 7 days. The procedure only takes 30 minutes, a standard in over-the-counter whitening.
Cons: Since the trays are mass produced in-office trays are designed specifically for the patient the trays may be uncomfortable and not the best fit.
