Teeth Whitening — Traditional Methods
For those who just want a little whitening boost, we recommend traditional whitening toothpastes. We love Colgate Optic White Oral Care Regimen which includes a toothpaste, toothbrush and whitening mouthwash rise — in fact, makeup artist, fashion expert and tv host Jeannie Mai is a huge fan of the line. Also try Emmi-Dent 6 Ultrasound Toothbrush, which oscillates 84 million times per minute to cut through bacteria and plaque to whiten teeth.
Whitening Strips & Systems
If you’re looking get rid of more than a few surface stains, we recommend going the more heavy duty route and exploring teeth whitening strips and systems. Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips are absolutely fantastic. Not only do they whiten deep-set stains like coffee and red wine over just two weeks, they also prevent future enamel stains as well.
Go Smile Truly Whitening Toothpaste System is a two-part toothpaste system that penetrates beyond surface enamel to lift set-in stains. Simply brush teeth with the Go Smile System and watch your teeth become whiter day-by-day.
Super Fast Whitening
Toothpaste and whitening strips are all well and good — but what if you don’t have weeks wait around for results? That’s where these instant results whiteners come in. We love PEARL Brilliant White Ionic Teeth Whitening System, an incredibly fast personal tooth whitening system that can whiten teeth up to 10 shades in just one 50-minute session.
If you’re not into gadgets, then try Primetime Smile Active Blue Teeth Whitening Kit. This two part brush on gel provides whiter teeth in just minutes without irritating gums. Each pen is good for five instant whitening applications.
Supersmile Quikee is the ultimate on-the-go product. Just dab some on your teeth and rub in with your tongue. No water necessary!
If you are not the DIY type, we recommend LAVAAN Dental Spa in New York City. They offer teeth whitening (and also have an express whitening service) for busy guys and gals. Time flies during the whitening treatment because you can watch TV on a flat screen TV during your service! It’s the ultimate luxury.
