Best Selling Amazon Teeth Whitening Kits REVIEWED by a Dentist

Professional Teeth Whitening Kit with Activated Charcoal

£14.99

 

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit. Firstly, there are teeth whitening gels presented in syringes. Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic moldable trays. These are generic, therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them. Once the plastic is soft, then you can try to mold that into the shape of your teeth. Thirdly, there is an LED light source which is supposed to enhance the effects of whitening gels.

Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was enough for all only one-week application. This means that you would have to buy another kit if you wanted to continue with the whitening.
  • The gel was too runny and this meant that most of it was quickly swallowed up as it leaked out of the whitening trays into your mouth.
  • The trays were very difficult to mould around your actual teeth. This is because as soon as they were taken out of the hot water, you only had a few seconds in which to carry out the moulding around your teeth. This was not enough time.
  • The LED light was very dim and seemed like a last-minute add-on gimmick. The connection was also very flimsy and therefore the light kept going off intermittently.
  • Finally, that paper shade comparison guide was not much use as it bore no resemblance to natural enamel.

Normally, if you have power whitening carried out in dental surgery, you would immediately expect to achieve a 4 shade increase in your teeth being whiter. After a week, there would be some fade back which always occurs with any whitening system, and the shade would then drop down to be an approximately 3 shade increase.

If on the other hand, you carried out home tooth whitening with a dentist-approved teeth whitening system, after approximately 2 weeks, you would expect a 3 shade increase in the whiteness of your teeth.

With this system, that we reviewed, the shade increase immediately afterwards was at one shade increasing brightness. It is important to bear in mind that with any system that dehydrates your teeth, the teeth will always increase in lightness. This immediate increase is purely due to the enamel of your teeth becoming dehydrated. However, after a day or two, your teeth will go back to their original colour as if there has been no change in lightness. This is the reason why we also measured the shade after 1-week. With this system, after one week the shade increase was only one-quarter of an increase in lightness. This is barely perceptible and unsatisfactory in our view.

The marketing jargon says that charcoal has absorptive properties but that does not mean that it can effectively lift out enamel stains or even if it has any effect. They also talk about a “special gel” but don’t tell you what is in this special gel or why it’s special.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 3 out of 10.

Teeth Whitening Kit, PRO-Edition with LazerCoco, More Effective Than Strips or Charcoal

£29.00

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components:

  1. Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.
  2. Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic moldable trays. These are generic and therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them. Once the plastic is soft, then you can try to mould that into the shape of your teeth.
  3. Thirdly, there is an LED light source which is supposed to enhance the effects of whitening gels.
  4. Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was enough for all only 4 days application. This means that you would have to buy another kit if you wanted to continue with the whitening.
  • The gel was inconsistent and this meant that most of it was quickly swallowed up as it leaked out of the whitening trays into your mouth.
  • The trays were very difficult to mould around your actual teeth. This is because as soon as they were taken out of the hot water, you only had a few seconds in which to carry out the moulding around your teeth. This was not enough time.
  • The LED light was very dim and kept flickering.
  • Finally, that paper shade comparison guide was not much use as it bore no resemblance to natural enamel as a comparison.

The kit states that it has “Full UK CPSR certification” which sounds impressive but all means is that they paid a laboratory about £120 to say that the gels are not cancer causing and not toxic.

Normally, if you have power whitening carried out in a dental surgery, you would immediately expect to achieve a 4 shade increase in your teeth being whiter. After a week, there would be some fade back which always occurs with any whitening system, and the shade would then drop down to be an approximately 3 shade increase.

If on the other hand you carried out home tooth whitening with a dentist approved teeth whitening system, after approximately 2 weeks, you would expect a 3 shade increase in the whiteness of your teeth.

With this system, after one week the shade increase was only half a shade in increase in lightness. This is barely perceptible and unsatisfactory in our view.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 4 marks out of 10.

Verdict

Pros and Cons

  • The amount of gel supplied was for 15 minutes a day for 12 days.  
  • The gel had gone off in 3 of the syringes so we were dubious also about the rest. It was either a bad batch or just a dubious system. When we contacted the company, they didn’t even bother to reply back.
  • The trays were very difficult to mould around your actual teeth. This is because as soon as they were taken out of the hot water, you only had a few seconds in which to carry out the moulding around your teeth. This was not enough time.
  • There were no details of the ingredients in the gels. On emailing the company, there was no response and on calling them, they had no idea what they were selling.

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit.

  • Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.

Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was for 15 minutes a day for 12 days.  
  • The gel was too viscous and it was with great difficulty to extrude it out of the syringes. On one occasion, the tip of the syringe came off and all the gel was wasted.
  • The trays were so thin that there was no way you could hold them on your teeth unless you physically held them with your fingers.
  • There were no details of the ingredients in the gels. On emailing the company, there was no response and on calling them, they had no idea what they were selling.

The kit contains a lot of meaningless marketing phrases. They also say that theirs is a “smart whitening” system because you can connect the LED light to your phone. At least, you don’t need to buy extra batteries.

Professional Tooth Whiten Gel Dental Care Home Bleaching Kit for White Teeth

£18.99

This system says that it is dentist made but we wondered if that dentist was even qualified. The box however does look neat and good quality.

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit.

  • Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.
  • Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic mouldable trays. These are generic and therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them. Once the plastic is soft, then you can try to mould that into the shape of your teeth.
  • Thirdly, there   is a LED light source which is supposed to enhance the effects of the whitening gels.
  • Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was for a week.
  • The  gel was of a regular consistency.
  • The trays were too thick and therefore very difficult to mould around your actual teeth. They didn’t feel comfortable at all to wear.
  • There was a list of ingredients inside the gels but none of these had any proven trials for teeth whitening. The company also incorrectly states that their results had been clinically proven but that was false.

With this system, after one week there was no shade increase.

The kit contains a lot of meaningless marketing phrases and actually compares their system to a professional dentist based kit at a fraction of the price. After using it, we decided that the best place for it was in the bin.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 0 marks out of 10.

BESTOPE Organic Activated Charcoal Powder with 2 Toothbrushes,Safe and Natural Tooth Whitener for Teeth Stain Removal

£14.99

Kit Contents

  • This system consists 2 pots of charcoal paste and 2 tooth brushes.

Pros and Cons

  • There are reports of charcoal being too abrasive and wearing your teeth away.
  • They also talk about “detoxifying your teeth and gums” which is nonsense.
  • The toothbrushes supplied became soft within a few days and the bristles splayed out so much that they had to be put in the rubbish bin.
  • After using it, the teeth “seemed” lighter but that was only because they looked black when the charcoal paste was on your teeth. In reality, there was no effect or very minimal. The minimal effect was due to the abrasiveness of the charcoal which is not good for the protective enamel coating of your teeth.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 1 marks out of 10.

mysmile – Professional Teeth Whitening Gel | 6x Syringes Refill Pack

£14.95

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit.

  • Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.
  • Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic mouldable trays. These are generic and therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them. Once the plastic is soft, then you can try to mould that into the shape of your teeth.
  • Thirdly, there   is a LED light source which is supposed to enhance the effects of the whitening gels.
  • Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

 Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was supposed to be enough for 6 applications but you needed 2 syringes per session so it was enough for barely 3 days’ worth.
  • The gel contains “sodium chlorite” which is harmful to tooth mineral and is a known irritant.
  • The trays were poor and flimsy.
  • The LED light did not even fit to the trays.
  • Finally, that paper shade comparison guide was not much use as it bore no resemblance to natural enamel.

With this system, after one week the shade increase was 2 shades but we are extremely worried about the sodium chlorite as mentioned above. The whitening effect was due to the erosive properties of sodium chlorite which isn’t recommended.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 0 marks out of 10.

iWhite Instant 2 Teeth Whitening Kit – Up to 8 Shades Whiter – Enamel Restoration

£20.99

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit.

  • Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.
  • Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic mouldable trays. These are generic and therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them.

  • Thirdly, there   is a LED light source which is supposed to enhance the effects of the whitening gels.
  • Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

 Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was supposed enough for 5 days but the syringes were poorly designed and extruded too much in one go.
  • The gel contains Phthalimidoperoxycaproic Acid which has some evidence of working to lighten teeth.
  • The trays were difficult to form around your teeth which negated the effect of the active ingredient, Phthalimidoperoxycaproic Acid.
  • The LED light worked but was quite dim.
  • Finally, that paper shade comparison guide was not much use as it bore no resemblance to natural enamel.

With this system, after one week the shade increase was 2 shades but some teeth had a mottled effect and looked patchy due to the awful trays that came with the kit. We would be able to get some effectiveness with this system if it came with better trays.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 4 marks out of 10.

Teeth Whitening Kit, BESTOPE Teeth Whitening Gel Kit Set with Led Accelerator Light

£19.99

Kit Contents

This system consists of several components that you will find in the kit.

  • Firstly, there are the teeth whitening gels presented in syringes.
  • Secondly, there are teeth whitening plastic mouldable trays. These are generic and therefore in order to fit them into your particular shape of mouth, you need to put them in hot or boiling water to soften them.

  •  Finally, there is a paper whitening teeth shade guide where you can measure the colour of your teeth, before and after.

Pros and Cons

Let’s look at each of these components of the teeth whitening kit in turn.

  • The amount of gel supplied was enough for 5 days and lots of warnings are given as it contains 0.1% peroxide. If you did get it in on your gums or swallowed it, it would be safe as the 0.1% concentration is too low to be of detriment.
  • The gel was full of bubbles. These were bubbles of oxygen when peroxide breaks down. This means that the active ingredient had already reduced effectiveness by the time it is applied to your teeth.
  • The trays were fairly easy to mould and produced a reasonable fit.
  • The LED looked impressive but stopped working altogether after 2 days.
  • Finally, that paper shade comparison guide was not much use as it bore no resemblance to natural enamel.
  • The result on the teeth individually was very patchy.

Verdict

On this basis, we give this product 3 marks out of 10:
