You can brush and floss every day, twice a day and still your smile may, over time, lose some of its sparkle. Maybe you've spotted some yellow that just didn't used to be there. You've tried whitening toothpastes but you still have a less than pearly white smile. It is at this point that many of us think about whitening our teeth.
There are two options, either you go to the dentist and they will bleach your teeth there and then, or provide you with a kit to take home. Or you purchase your own kit and do the "at home ble?aching" yourself. Needless to say, both the dentist options are expensive. Which is why more and more of us are taking to whitening our own teeth. So check out our best teeth whitening kits and get started.
We've only considered kits that you do yourself at home. We've not considered whitening toothpastes, or the options to get via your own dentist. Our top three all gave great results and we think you'd be happy with the results if you gave any one of them a go.

It is a sad fact, that as we age our teeth can really show it. This can be anything from a dulling of your pearly whites, to staining and yellowing. Or worse! So what causes this unhappy state of affairs? It's a mixture of different factors with a number of solutions:
The key commonality from all of these is that if you get your dentist to whiten your teeth you will be spending hundreds of dollars. When done at home (with admittedly a higher time input from yourself) you will get excellent results at a fraction of the price.
So more and more of us are thinking that it is worth giving the at home teeth whitening kits a go! Research has shown time and time again that both women and men secretly want and are attracted to whiter teeth.
There are a few things to consider. And key is safety.
You should start to see results within a week. A tip for you is to take a photo before you start, and then one a week later. Compare the two. If you see a change you know it is working for you! Remember to take the photo in the same conditions to make sure that you are comparing like for like!
Our top three all produced good results for our testers. They differ in ingredients and application, so take a look to see which you think would suit you the best.
With just 30 minutes a day, this product needs to be used for 30 days although we saw results after just three days. Amazing stain removing, worked really well for our testers who had nicotine and coffee stains.
We loved how easy this was to use. No worrying about syringes, molding and making sure you keep your gums clear of bleach. Gave brilliant results and only needed to be on for 30 minutes.
These are great for working on your smile. But as they are stips, they won't whiten your back teeth, or the backs of your teeth. If you want more than just your smile whitened, then this may not be the product for you.
Love the 100 day money back guarantee. So if you try it and don't like it, or it doesn't work. You get your money back. No questions asked. So really, why wouldn't you try it?
It works really well and you can use the molded trays to whiten more than just your front teeth. Worked far better on yellow stained teeth than grey stained teeth.
The instructions are terrible. Email the company and they'll help!
Again, this is a tray based teeth whitening kit. So you will be able to get more than just your front teeth whitened. Again these are moldable in hot water. And you can try a few times until you get the perfect fit!
It is very similar to our second placed product. You can also apply the solution directly onto your teeth with a Q-tip before wearing the molded trays. This ensures full coverage. Results took a week to become visible, but after using for 6 weeks the results were great.
Again, we found the instructions very unclear. And be careful not to get the product on your gums. You don't want to bleach your gums!
Each of our top three is a great product. The strips are the easiest to use and probably a good starting point for anyone who is new to teeth whitening. Once you become more confident the molded trays are a great product for getting a whole mouthful of white teeth!
