Whiten your teeth at home with products that work, with minimum fuss.

If you're fond of tea, coffee, red wine etc., chances are you've googled how to whiten your teeth! But so many methods involve trays that need customising, UV lights and hours of treatment. And professional treatments can be very pricey, with top up visits required. We've picked some easy ways to whiten your teeth at home, with products that fit into your daily routine.

Whiten Your Teeth: Easy Tray Systems

Whiten Your Teeth
iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Professional Kit - £21.95 (RRP £35)

This kit provides instant whitening and stain removal and takes only 20 minutes! If you have serious staining, use the system 5 days in a row. Otherwise, you can use it whenever you need a top up or perhaps once a month. Perfect for big events, holidays or last minute dates!

What's involved? The pre-filled, one size fits all trays contain a whitening system that also delivers a source of calcium to strengthen the teeth. Treatment works on both the front and back of the teeth and best of all, you can wear both trays at the same time. Just pop them on during your favourite soap and let them work their magic.

Janina Ultra White Whitening Maxiwhite Professional Teeth Whitening Pre-Filled Trays x 10

- £24.40 (RRP £29.95)

Janina is also a one size fits all tray system, that promises a minimum of 7 shades lighter after 5 daily uses. The trays are pre-filled, so no messy mixing, and don't contain any harsh ingredients. Instead, they contain natural fruit enzymes to safely whiten your teeth. They're effective on coffee, tea, nicotine and red wine stains. Just wear the trays for 35 minutes then dispose of. Janina also have a complementary range of toothpaste to continue the good work.

Whiten Your Teeth: Whitening Strips

Not everyone is a fan of trays, however effective, so another fantastic option is to use teeth whitening strips. Janina Maxiwhite Whitening Strips 7 Day System is a hydrogen-peroxide free formula that's used daily to whiten teeth. Use twice a day for 7 days (30 minutes each time) or once a day for 14 days. (Our Price £16.95)

Spotlight Love Your Smile Teeth White Strips were created by Irish Dentists Dr Lisa and Vanessa Creaven. These do contain a small percentage of hydrogen peroxide and need to be worn for 1 hour a day, however you will see results instantly and over 2 weeks should see a beautifully white smile. The pack contains 14 pairs of strips, so enough for top and bottom teeth. (Our Price £39.95)

Whiten Your Teeth: Toothpaste and Secret Weapons!

If you're choosing one of the methods above, it makes sense to back it up with a whitening toothpaste. Both Janina and Spotlight have whitening toothpaste that can be used alone, or to complement the tray and strip systems. What you may not know however, is that an extra secret weapon exists in the form of whitening spray. This nifty spray can be used on the go - all you do is spray it into your mouth, swish around then spit out. Fantastic for work or the gym, where toothbrushing is not an option!

Our final tip for tooth whitening is an electric toothbrush. For deep, solid cleaning, manual brushing cannot compare. Combine an electric brush with a whitening toothbpaste and occasional tray or strip treatment and your smile will be gleaming in no time!
