What Are Teeth Whitening Kits?

Teeth whitening kits include everything you need to strip away stains, reverse yellowing teeth and restore a dazzling smile, all from the comfort of your own home.

What do they include?

Teeth whitening kits include everything you need for at-home whitening without the price tag, lengthy wait and multiple visits that come with a trip to the dentist’s chair.

Each kit will contain enough product for multiple treatments, so no matter what the current shade of your teeth, you’ll be able to see a visible improvement.

Kits all contain a whitening product, which contains the active ingredients that work to brighten and whiten your smile, which typically comes as a pen, in strips or in syringes ready to apply onto trays that go over your teeth.

Your kit may also contain trays that fit comfortably to your teeth and hold the whitening gel or product in the mouth. Many kits also come with a UV light to use during the whitening process. This is designed to accelerate whitening, stripping away years of yellowing and helping to enhance the whiteness of your smile.

Are they effective?

Yes, whitening kits are typically very effective, but results will vary depending on your teeth. It may take longer to see results depending on how dark a shade your teeth currently are and also the health of your mouth in general – i.e. whether you currently have fillings, caps or crowns.

It’s always best to consult with a professional first if you’ve had significant dental work done to make sure at-home whitening is suitable for your smile.

However, the majority of users can experience professional-level whitening – with years of stains and yellowing reversed and teeth appearing multiple shades whiter and lighter.

It’s important to note, however, that no whitening treatment, even those on offer by dentists, is a permanent solution. Ageing, eating and drinking certain foods and genetics can all influence yellowing, so treatment may need to be repeated on a semi

-regular basis in order to keep your pearly whites shining.

Leading brands

Leading brands include dentists’ favourite, Colgate, who have a popular line of whitening toothpastes, strips and kits.

Their whitening kit claims to remove up to 10 years’ worth of staining in three days, and includes a flexible purple light to boost whitening.

The kit provides enamel-safe treatment with no sensitivity and is recommended by dentists. Philips is another leading brand offering superior whitening results similar to those you could expect from a dentist, alongside Auraglow, whose bumper kit provides over 30 treatments for optimal results.
