Craving a pearly white smile this Christmas? If you feel the shade of your teeth is holding you back, you're not alone! In the US, a whopping 99.7% of people surveyed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry believe that your smile is an important social asset.
Thankfully, with advancements in home teeth whiteners, you can now achieve whiter teeth from the comfort of your own home, and it might be as simple as picking up a new toothbrush or investing in a secret weapon. Let us guide you through some of the best home teeth whiteners that could have you beaming with confidence before New Years Eve!
The Best at Home Teeth Whiteners: Devices
By far our best selling teeth whitening device is the Luster Pro Light. It's really easy to use and doesn't require any messy trays. There are three recommended schedules – weekend, weekday and full week – so you can easily work the treatments into your schedule. You simply mix the whitening solution with and activator gel, and then use the dual action whitening light to accellerate the process.
Next up is the L(A)B Teeth Whitening Kit, a device developed by three super smart sisters, Charlotte, Lauren and Sophie. They're putting their interest in chemistry and beauty to good use by creating devices they actually want to use – and we have to admit we're incredibly impressed. This device uses a non-peroxide activator gel and an LED light to lighten teeth by up to 11 shades in just 20 minutes.
The Best at Home Teeth Whiteners: Toothbrushes
The foundation for any successful teeth whitening process should always be perfectly clean teeth, so if you're looking to up your teeth brushing game, we recommend one of these super-high-tech electric toothbrushes.
The Foreo ISSA is a revolutionary toothbrush that will encourage you to change the way you think about brushing your pearly whites. Instead of the traditional fast-moving bristles, it had a silicone brush head and uses sonic movements to clean your teeth like never before. It takes a little getting uses to, but the results are undeniable. You only need to change the ultra-hygienic brush head once a year AND it only needs charging once every six months.
If you're after a more traditional toothbrush, you can't go wrong with the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean. It promises to remove 100% more plaque biofilm in hard-to-reach areas, and to whiten teeth two times more than a manual toothbrush in just one week. The unique design pushes fluid below the gumline and between teeth, resulting in healthier teeth and gums! Still not sure which method is right for you?
