If you’re like me, you rely on a steady stream of caffeine to make it through the day, which unfortunately, can take a toll on the colour of your teeth. Between coffee, soda, wine and cigarettes, our teeth are at the mercy of our vices, and sometimes require more TLC than a whitening toothpaste can provide.
At-home whitening products have come a long way, making it easier and more affordable than ever to revitalize your less than sparkling smile. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to bring back your pearly whites, the MySmile Whitening Kit might just be for you.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $40 (originally $67)
Unlike some pesky white strips that you have to wear for half an hour at a time, each treatment with MySmile takes just 10 minutes to deliver effective, affordable results.
Each kit comes with a silicone mouth tray and three packs of stain removing gel that equates to nine treatments and an LED light that is believed to speed up treatment. The active bleaching ingredient, carbomide peroxide, is gentle enough for sensitive teeth at a concentration that’s safe for home use when used as directed.
To use, simply fill the mouthpiece (top and bottom) with 0.5 ml of gel on each side, turn on the power button for the LED light and wait. The light will automatically turn off after 10 minutes, which means it’s time to rinse both your teeth and the mouthpiece and check out your whiter, brighter smile.
“My teeth are pretty sensitive, most teeth whitening products I’ve tried were hurting my teeth and gums. But this one is very gentle and not irritating at all,” one reviewer wrote. “I’m really looking forward to the result.”
“Having done three previous sessions at my dentist, I had low expectations of how this product would compare...Within the first session my teeth where at least two shades whiter, and I've got 6 days left,” echoed another. “This product blew me away, for the price I was skeptical but this is on par with the same results I got from a $120 professional session with the dentist.”
