Most people desire a pearly and gleaming smile. But not all of us have naturally straight or white teeth. Moreover, one can get confused trying to find the best remedy because many options exist. Therefore, we’ve put together a list of the best products for teeth straightening and whitening on the market. It’s recommended to consult a dentist before using these. Also, if these products cause any irritation, stop using them immediately.
Best teeth straightening products
SmileDirectClub was one of the first companies to develop teeth straightening kits. Their aligners are easy to use, and unlike braces, you can easily remove them before eating or brushing. For effective teeth straightening, SmileDirectClub recommends wearing the aligners 22 hours a day for four to six months. The kit costs about $2,000.
Candid Clear Aligners
Candid is probably the only brand that helps straighten all your teeth rather than just the front ones. Their aligners cost anywhere between $1,900 and $2,400. To get started, you can either visit their experienced doctors or order an at-home starter kit.
This is a high-frequency vibration device from Byte that helps shift teeth faster and with less discomfort. You have to wear the device for about 10 to 15 minutes per day for effective results. The HyperByte device costs around $700. Byte also sells aligners, which may cost between $1,900 and $2,300.
Best teeth whitening products
GLO Brilliant Deluxe Teeth Whitening Device
This is an FDA-registered product that consists of an LED mouthpiece. Simply apply some hydrogen peroxide gel that comes with the pack onto the mouthpiece and place it into your mouth. The mouthpiece lights up, combining light and heat to activate the whitening gel. The entire cleaning process takes only about eight minutes. However, the GLO kit is an expensive product at $200.
Crest 3DWhitestrips Glamorous White
These are hydrogen peroxide strips that you must apply to your upper and lower teeth once daily. The strips have a “no-slip” grip, and the company claims that they can remove over 15 years of tough stains in 14 days. A pack of 28 strips costs about $45.
Zimba Whitening Strips
The whitening strips from Zimba are best for those with sensitive teeth and gums. They come in various flavors like mint, spearmint, wintergreen, peach, and strawberry. Each box has 28 strips for a two-week course and is affordably priced at $25.
