Not all whiteners are created equal. Find out what to look for before investing

Keep them looking great for as long as possible with a little help.


Quality is extremely important in any product. How it performs against rivals in the marketplace is key. Generally a great commercial doesn’t always tell the best accomplishments of a teeth whitening product. One great idea is searching for testimonials. Great packaging is nice, but doesn't always tell the whole story of how great or bad a product really is.

There are tons of sites where items or services are evaluated and feedback given from actual customers. Avoid looking at the products own website testimonials unless they allow reviews from real users. Countless are great reviews, but not from real customers.

Read the small print on the item. A great one is safe for the gums, tooth enamel and every other part of the mouth. What are the warnings? Warnings or possible side effects are just as important as how good it works. Imagine having extremely white teeth, but bloody and painful gums?

Simply getting the latest one to hit the market is not a good idea either. Go with a product which is safe and gets results. This is never a wrong move.


Kits have all sorts of various ingredients. Some have strips, others polish while a few have trays. Teeth whitening pens have hit the shelves and more concepts are on the way. Along with the actual whitening instrument lots of kits have extras like gum. Determine what teeth specifically need and make certain the teeth whitening kit contents meet it.

Find one with everything needed to make it work in your favor for your specific needs and time investment. Are the extras worth the additional costs? If you need to buy a new kit every couple of months, is it worth it? Is it affordable overall? How these are answered helps to find the right tools for the job.


The process needed to get the results usually requires a significant time investment. It is essential the method used to whiten is one which is followed diligently to receive the best results.

The damage didn’t occur overnight and the solution will not either. This means sticking with the whitening method is critical to get the outcome expected. For some it also means changing daily habits to retain the results.

Make certain the method chosen matches your schedule and availability. Are you able to follow the directions or is there a clash with other commitments or lifestyle. For an example, is overnight use of a tray or four hours of wear time a day for strips doable? For some individuals the process is the deciding factor above the cost.

In conclusion

Getting the pearly whites shining again is a great concept. The need to have them looking their best is appealing and attractive for everyone. The most expensive doesn't always mean the best for everyone searching for a way to have their white smile back. The same is said for the cheapest being the best way to go. Research and compare the things discussed here to get the best one for you.
