We’re confident that you now know how to brush your teeth in a safe and effective manner, but what if you want to go a step further with the look of your smile? Beautiful, bright white teeth are the accessory that always stays in style, no matter the season. You may be wondering how you can maintain your own pearly whites in our 21st century age? The answer may shock some, but it’s become all the rage in recent years: white strips!
As a multi-billion dollar industry, teeth whitening naturally has many options, but not all are cut from the same cloth. Some are more costly than others, some don’t work as advertised, and some can even be dangerous to your health (yikes!). That’s why it’s important to consult a professional before embarking on your own whitening regiment.
Whitening streatments get expensive, but at-home strips are an affordable, easy-to-use alternative that garners results you can actually see. Which brands do we suggest? Continue reading for a brief breakdown of the whitening strips that our dentists recommend using in the comfort of your own home.
Crest 3D Whitestrips
We figured we would start with the most accessible. Crest 3D Whitestrips can be purchased in stores or online. The whitening gel is contained in convenient strips that mold to your teeth. Crest strips are well suited to those with sensitive teeth since they typically have a lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which is just 10% of the overall formula. There are a lot of different iterations of Crest Whitestrips, but all have positive ratings online and are almost guaranteed to provide you with brighter, whiter teeth.
For those individuals with extremely sensitive teeth, consider Lumist Advanced. Their whitening strips are clinically proven to cause little to no sensitivity due to the higher concentration of carbamide peroxide. These strips are made without bleach or hydrogen peroxide but are still able to noticeably whiten teeth. Plus, they are made with Comfort Fit Technology, ensuring they won’t slip around after they’ve been placed on your teeth.
An additional tip if you are feeling excess sensitivity while using white strips: brush your teeth with Sensodyne toothpaste while you’re using the strips. It should counteract the sensitivity to the point where you can continue with your whitening.
Tansmile Charcoal Teeth Whitening Strips
Made entirely from natural and organic materials such as coconut oil, charcoal, and citric acid, the Tansmile Charcoal Teeth Whitening Strips guarantee results after one use. The package comes with 14 sets of strips, each containing a strip for the top and bottom rows of teeth. You can easily drink water with these strips in place since they hold firm.
Bright White Teeth Whitening Strips
These strips are easy to use and guarantee results. Teeth look whiter within the first hour of using Bright White Teeth Whitening Strips, but the real results come after fourteen days of treatment, which can last up to a year afterward. They come outfitted with effective gripping technology, so the strips won’t slide around your teeth. Some users have complained that the adhesive grip is almost too strong, which made them worried when they had to remove the strips, but no damage was done.
