Coffee, tea, red wine … we love sipping on those colorful, flavorful libations. But a minute on the lips and, unfortunately, much longer on the teeth. Part of what makes those drinks – and foods like berries– taste so sumptuous are the same things that can stain our teeth. Time doesn’t help whiten them either.

In just 10 hours’ time, you can remove 14 years of stains with this kit in just 30 minutes a day.

Yes, you can apply and then wear the industry-leading whitening strips for a complete hour instead of the recommended 30 minutes, for even faster whitening. But the 30 minutes, 20 days in a row, truly makes your smile whiter, and we love that. They are easy to remove from their packaging and apply. Put them on before your morning commute, chores, or workout. They’re designed with special no-slip sealing technology so they’ll stick to your teeth while you chat

We like how using this option actually strengthens your tooth enamel.

Grab a four-pack of these Total tubes of toothpaste. We love the minty gel and how it brightens your smile and your mouth. This product has revolutionized toothpaste with its use of stannous fluoride. It’s different from regular sodium fluoride as it acts as an antibacterial, not just for protection from cavities, but plaque, gingivitis, tartar buildup, and tooth sensitivity. It freshens your mouth and whitens your smile all at the same time.

We all know the power of acids in your food. When you brush, knock out those enamel eroding too.

Sensodyne also strengthens and rehardens enamel, the tooth’s protective surface. You’re brushing anyway, so why not whiten and gently improve your whole mouth’s health? We love how there is finally a gentle way to relieve sensitivity while whitening and strengthening your teeth.

This brand has a soothing flavor that won't overwhelm your mouth after each use.

We love that this whitening toothpaste doesn’t have bubbly peroxide. But it still brightens like a pro. Using sodium monofluorophosphate, a salt helps put minerals back into your teeth, which in turn helps to prevent tooth decay. Make sure to brush thoroughly when you use it, twice a day. It’s safe for kids two and over – just make sure the little ones are supervised and rinse their mouths out well.

Even the most sensitive mouths will appreciate this earth friendly, people friendly, whitening paste.

This toothpaste is also great for what it doesn’t have in it. No fluoride, no gluten, no peroxide, no parabens, and made without cruelty. Little diatom skeletons – diatomaceous earth – provide the scrubbiness in this natural whitening toothpaste. We love the activated charcoal, baking soda, combined with the organic coconut oil, that binds to pull stains and plaque from your teeth. The deep Pacific Mint flavor of peppermint oil keeps your mouth fresh.
