Your guide to at home teeth whitening

The quest for a dazzling smile never goes out of style

With a rise in DIY beauty treatments, teeth whitening at home has become increasingly popular, thanks to easy-to-use solutions developed by dentists. If you need help determining where to begin, these answers to commonly asked questions will help you navigate your way to brighter teeth in the comfort of your home.

What is the best way to whiten your teeth?

While professional treatments offered by dentists are a quick solution to whitening your teeth, many individuals turn to at home teeth whitening kits for their affordability and convenience.
If your teeth are heavily stained, professional treatments may be worth the investment; however, if you're looking to brighten and lighten the existing shade of your teeth, you may prefer the convenience and cost of whitening your teeth in the comfort of your home.
The key ingredient to look out for in a professional or at-home teeth whitening treatment is hydrogen peroxide. It oxidises the teeth, breaking down and reducing the visibility of stains.
Importantly, when whitening your teeth at home, following product instructions is best to prevent tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. We recommend selecting products that use dental-grade ingredients, for example, Smilie. Formulated by dentists, Smilie's teeth whitening kits and teeth whitening strips cater to sensitive teeth and are gentle on enamel, ensuring you can achieve a more brilliant result without discomfort. Smilie's teeth whitening kits also include an LED light device to speed up the whitening process.

Can yellow teeth really become white again?

Results vary based on the individual and the degree of tooth discolouration. Teeth whitening kits are an excellent DIY option for lightening surface stains caused by factors like food, drink and smoking.
After using an at-home teeth whitening kit, the time it takes to see results depends on the condition of your teeth and the specific product. When using Smilie, you'll likely notice a difference in the colour of your teeth after the first application.
