Top 5 At-Home Teeth Whitening Products of 2022
By Nick GrowDental Researcher & Product Specialist
It’s a sad fact that millions of our fellow Americans are afraid to smile. Why is that? Often, it’s due to tooth discoloration. There are a myriad of reasons for stained teeth: drinking coffee, tea or red wine, smoking cigarettes, taking certain medications; even aging and genetics play a role. But there’s great and exciting news! A reliable and effective at-home teeth whitening kit can quickly deliver a smile that is shades whiter, giving a huge boost to your confidence.
We’ve gone ahead and done the hard work for you, researching a number of teeth whitening products and breaking down the key criteria to look for, including effectiveness, safety, convenience, durability and whether or not they have been clinically tested to truly give you a noticeably whiter and brighter smile.
Discover the 5 Best Teeth Whitening Kits of 2022.
#1 Perfect Smile Whitening Kit
The Perfect Smile Whitening Kit tops the list as this year’s best teeth whitening kit. An outstanding product, it delivers real results safely, effectively and fast.
Its main claim, that it will get your teeth at least 3 shades whiter in only 7 days, is backed up by an extensive clinical study conducted by Allergisa, a trusted, international pioneer in safety and efficacy testing.1
Designed for people who suffer from sensitive teeth and gums, the Whitening Kit uses a gel containing carbamide peroxide and other chemical-free ingredients that will not cause pain or discomfort.
In fact, 100% of users agree that it is safe for sensitive teeth.*
Whitening Kit features blue light technology, ensuring that tough stains are removed, oral health is protected and teeth are whitened faster — in just 16 minutes a day, and from the comfort of your home.
This is a smartly designed, wireless and rechargeable device that is easy and convenient to use, and will last you for years.
The Perfect Smile Company stands behind it with an incredible 10-Year Warranty. And if, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with the product, you can return it within 90 days for a fast and full refund (plus shipping and handling). The customer service staff are among the best in the business: highly knowledgeable, courteous and helpful.
*Based on the clinical study results of 32 adults conducted by Allergisa, an internationally-recognized lab for safety and efficacy testing.
Snow features a unique whitening serum with an LED mouthpiece that whitens teeth quickly. Cold light technology brightens teeth, while supporting gum health during treatments. It comes with a 45-Day Money Back Guarantee and limited 5-Year Product Warranty.
While we find Snow’s 2nd Generation Wireless Teeth Whitening Kit a solid product, our main issues have to do with cost and durability. It is one of the most expensive of its kind and customers have complained about reliability, noting that their device stopped working after only 4-5 treatments.
#3 Glo Science
Glo is a well-designed device that features an advanced warming heat acceleration technology. Patented by a top aesthetic dentist, the mouthpiece incorporates a sensitivity-free hydrogen peroxide gel in its treatment.
This product is registered with the FDA, though the company provides only a 1-Year Limited Warranty. In addition to being one of the more expensive whitening kits on the market, it is not wireless. The mouthpiece plugs into a power pack, which you wear around your neck, essentially “wiring you up” for daily treatments.
Smile, from Smile Direct Club, is a serviceable, wireless teeth whitening product at an affordable price. Its starter kit comes with a 6-month supply of whitening gel pens. Incorporating an enamel-safe formula trusted by dentists, your teeth and gums will be protected during daily treatments.
It takes just 10 minutes a day, with a single charge getting you 1 week of usage. While it claims to get teeth up 9 shades whiter in 1 week, results among users are mixed.
A new-ish brand, GlossRay appears to be gaining popularity among at-home teeth whiteners. However, it makes several bold claims that don’t appear to be cited or backed up by any dentists, science or clinical testing, i.e. hard proof.
For example, it incorporates “20X 3D Pro LED Light technology for maximum whitening results,” but it doesn’t cite any studies to back this up.
And while it is reasonably priced when compared to similar products, their 30-day money back guarantee and lack of a product warranty should give you some pause.
