As with any new health regimen, it is always a good idea to consult a health professional (in this case your dentist) before using household teeth whitening kits. Although home teeth whitening kits are safe for many people, there are several situations where it may not be suitable for some people to use them.
Pure Smile Instant Whitening Toothpaste
Instant Whitening Toothpaste typically contains mild abrasives like hydrated silica, sodium bicarbonate, and calcium carbonate to polish and remove surface stains and/or low concentrations of active hydrogen peroxide to bleach teeth. Look for pastes that contain peroxide if you want real results. You can expect to see visible effects after five or more days of twice-daily use. Shop our Toothpaste here
Whitening strips and trays
A plastic strip, tray, or mold is used to apply the bleaching ingredient hydrogen peroxide directly to teeth. Each session lasts 30 minutes to two hours, and you’ll need up to three weeks of repeated use for full results. If you want to make your teeth white fast, strips are one of the most effective OTC teeth whiteners, as the active ingredient is left on teeth for an extended period of time.
Whitening light devices
A whitening agent is applied directly to the teeth; then a blue LED light is placed over them to maximize penetration and speed up performance. Unlike teeth whitening strips, light tools are very effective because of the time the active ingredient makes full contact with your teeth. You can contact us prior to booking an appointment to find out if we have any whitening specials available. Book your 30-minute session.
Activated Coconut Powder
No one wants to feel self-conscious about their teeth. In fact, having bright-white teeth can make you look up to five years younger. For the most dramatic and instantaneous results, you’ll want to head to your local dentist’s office or teeth whitening clinic for a professional whitening treatment, which offers a higher concentration of active bleaching ingredients.

Once you have used our whitening products, there are things you can do to prevent stains and keep your smile as bright as possible:
