Our culture has something of a white teeth craze. Some commercials tell you your teeth should be so white they look like airport runway spotlights. While your teeth don’t have to be quite that white, sometimes it’s nice to get all the coffee and soda stains off your teeth. Below are some of the top products for whitening teeth at home. If you have sensitive teeth and try to avoid whitening products because of it, some products below help take care of sensitivity, too.

Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrips Professional Effects

One of the most popular and easy ways to whiten teeth at home, these whitestrips come as one of the highest-rated home whitening strips on Amazon. It’s advertised to remove fourteen years’ worth of stains on your teeth.

Tuxedo Tooth and Gum Powder By Rocky Mountain Essentials

Coconut, activated charcoal and bentonite clay all come together in this natural teeth whitening product. This is a powder you brush on your teeth for two minutes with a toothbrush. It’s great for people with sensitive teeth, where whitening can be an issue.

Crest 3D White Luxe Glamorous White Mouthwash

Proving that whitening products come in all forms, this mouthwash protects against future stains, removes stains and takes care of bad breath. It’s advertised to noticeably whiten teeth after two days.

Opalescence Teeth Whitening Syringes

This gel comes in some intimidating looking syringes, like you’re shooting this into your gums or something. You actually apply the gel into some trays, which you insert in your mouth around your teeth, so it’s not so bad.

Colgate 2-in-1 Whitening Toothpaste

If you’re not a fan of adding a fancy extra treatment to your routine, this popular whitening toothpaste could do the trick.

Shine Whitening Teeth Whitening Kit

This is another product where you load up a tray with gel and insert in into your mouth. Unlike some other products, you only have to keep it in for 5-15 minutes.

Smart Ash Organic All Natural Whitening Tooth Powder

Here’s another natural powder with activated charcoal and bentonite clay. If your teeth are hurting just looking at all these synthetic products because you have sensitive teeth, this powder is advertised to reduce sensitivity by re-mineralizing and restoring enamel while it whitens.

AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Accelerator Light

One of the newest, most high-tech ways of whitening teeth is shinning LED light right onto them. You actually combine this with a teeth-whitening gel. LED light is supposed to speed up the whitening effects of the gel.

Remineralization Gel

This isn’t a product to whiten teeth per se, it’s actually a gel you apply with trays after whitening to reduce the sensitivity that whitening can cause.
