Burst’s no-slip-grip Teeth Whitening Strips are powered by 6% hydrogen peroxide (a gold-standard whitening ingredient, FYI) and only require 15 minutes for them to do their thing. The coconut mint flavoring is a welcome touch, too.

If you’re looking for a more potent whitening solution, use LED light (via a lightweight, waterproof device) in conjunction with Crest’s 3D Whitestrips for a brightening boost. After wearing the strips by themselves for 30 minutes, apply the light for five minutes and you’ll be golden.
The key feature of Colgate’s Optic White ComfortFit LED Teeth Whitening Kit is a flexible, rechargeable LED light that more easily conforms to the shape of your mouth than previous iterations — and it plugs into your phone. The process is as simple as before, though: Apply a thin layer of the Teeth Whitening Pen to each tooth, let the serum dry/set for a mere 10 to 15 seconds, and then plug the LED device right into our phone. After 10 minutes, the device automatically shuts off. Avoid eating and drinking for 30 minutes, or leave it on overnight for better results. Either way, use your handy toothbrush to sweep away the dried serum after you’re through.
SmileDirectClub’s Brighten On Premium Teeth Whitening Kit takes five minutes per session, twice daily for a week for seriously visible results. The wireless whitening light is equipped with 20 LED lights and provides said week’s worth of treatments upon a single charge.

While you can use Crest‘s Best of Beauty-winning Whitening Emulsions + Overnight Freshness any time of the day (as long as you allow a 30-minute grace period before drinking or eating), why not apply the product right before bed for maximum efficacy? All you have to do is take the doe-foot wand, deposit the translucent, gel-like emulsion onto it, and then brush it against your teeth like you would toothpaste.
Lana Rozenberg, DDS, a New York City-based, board-certified cosmetic dentist, previously recommended Plus White‘s 5 Minute system because it causes “very little [tooth] sensitivity, [and they’re] less expensive than the strips but a bit easier, due to the trays,” she said. You’re not limited to the trays, however — you can also use a Q-tip or toothbrush if that’s easier.
Colgate’s Optic White Express Teeth Whitening Pen won a 2023 Best of Beauty Award for many reasons — but let us just say, it’s especially handy for special occasion prep. The brand claims you’ll see whiter teeth in just one day — more specifically, after three applications — but, as always, the results are better with continued use. If you prefer to set it and forget it, Colgate also has an overnight version of its whitening pen that’s also on sale.
