I’ve always had slightly yellow teeth like a lot of people. I don’t smoke, but I do drink tea and diet coke. I like wine, but only white wine. I think some people are also more prone to teeth staining than others. My eldest son has some yellowing even though he brushes well.
So, what can we do about it? There are so many products out there that promise amazing results, but which ones actually work? I’ve tried a charcoal powder before, where you dip your toothbrush in a black powder and brush your teeth with it, but I didn’t like the mess and I couldn’t see any difference. I’ve also tried tooth whitening toothpastes, but I find them no different to normal toothpastes.
This time, I’m trying out these teeth whitening strips. They come in a box containing the strips packaged in individual sachets. Each sachet houses two strips, one for the upper teeth and one for the lower. It’s only enough for the teeth you can see most when you smile, so it doesn’t treat your whole mouth, but I was happy with that. It covers the most important areas.
I was a bit nervous trying them out due to my previous experience with charcoal, but I was pleasantly surprised – you peel off the strips and place them on your teeth. It says to dry them with a towel first but the thought of that makes my toes curl so I wiped my teeth with my fingers instead, which seemed to do the job. They stick in place fine and have a pleasant mild minty taste.
The only problem I had was that they need to stay in place for 30 minutes, and you aren’t allowed to eat or drink whilst they are in. I am the sort of person that always has a drink on the go, so I had to choose my moment carefully. The recommended use is twice a day, so you have to earmark the time to do it. In the box you have a two week supply of strips. After you’re finished, remove and throw away. You can rinse and brush your teeth afterwards, there is some residue but easily removed.
So, do they work?
In a word, yes! I haven’t done the full two weeks yet, but even after a few days I can see visible differences and some of the staining is gone. You can see from my pictures below the difference. So a little bit of effort and time will give you the results you need. For the price, they are really good value charcoal teeth whitening products you can use at home.
It’s difficult to tell on the photos, but it really does make a difference. Plus, you look really attractive with them in!
