So you've decided it's time to get those pearly whites whiter than white. Now comes the question of which one of the many options exactly should you go for? What really is the best at home teeth whitening kit for you? As a professional cosmetic dentist, we know teeth whitening inside out. Let's get started and unravel this teeth whitening mystery for you.
What Makes the Best at Home Teeth Whitening Kit?
First things first, you'll need to understand what you are looking for as the best whitening kit may be different for different people. We've narrowed this down to two specific kits - one we believe is the best premium at home teeth whitening kit and the other is the best value for money. Then you've got the best of both worlds.
You Get What You Pay For
Sure, you can head down to your local beauty shop and buy a cheaper version of teeth whitening. Firstly, it is illegal for beauty clinics to provide teeth whitening - one key reason is that you need to be checked first by a dental professional to ensure that teeth whitening is safe for you. On top of this, you do not know where they are obtaining their whitening gels from. When you book in with a dental professional, you can be assured that it has been sourced reliably and safely. It will work properly and this is why if you are looking for the best at home teeth whitening kit then you should only be obtaining it from a cosmetic dentist near you.
Another thing to note is that you DO first need to come into the dentist for a check up and to have your whitening trays made. This is important as we will take professional moulds of your teeth that ensures, when in use, the gel is kept close to the teeth and works effectively. The worst thing you can do is to get a DIY mould that is loose around your teeth and can cause the whitening gels to leak out.
Best Value at Home Teeth Whitening Kit
We've used lots of different at home teeth whitening kits throughout our work. We've found the best value one to be the White Dental Beauty at home teeth whitening kit from Optident. Now, although you do whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home, as mentioned above, you first come in to the practice to get the mould taken of your teeth. This ensures no leakage and a strong, reliable whitening tray that fits snugly to your teeth.
We vouch for this whitening kit as at just £205, you'll get the trays and 8 whitening gels included. You can then buy top up gels for just £10 each. When you initially head home with your kit, you'll whiten them daily for up to 2 weeks (or until you reach the desired level of whiteness). You'll then keep your perfect, white smile, for months to come and can easily top up your whiteness as and when is needed.
Best Premium at Home teeth Whitening Kit
Landing at the top of the list for best at home teeth whitening kit is the Enlighten Whitening option. This whitening kit is 'the only whitening kit able to guarantee vita shade B1'. This is a level of whiteness depicted on the Vita Shade Guide. The kit comes pre-chilled in the fridge and is designed to give maximum whiteness whilst limiting the amount of sensitivity of your teeth. And, we have to say, the results are just incredible! The price tag for this at home whitening kit is £582 and so comes in quite a bit higher than the White Dental Beauty kit. However, you do get what you pay for and it is potentially the best whitening kit out on the market today.
