    19 Teeth Whiteners That Work So Well, I'm Convinced It's Magic

    Whitening paste, LED kits, and more to get you those pearly whites.

    1. Cali White Activated Charcoal and Coconut Oil Toothpaste streamlines the whitening process for those of us who want fast results, but want to get it done even faster. Did I mention it's vegan, organic, and *minty fresh* thanks to peppermint oil? Not only is this quick, but it's actually pleasant to use.

    2. Glowup Teeth-Whitening Kit customizes your experience based on your own sensitivity and discoloration through an online quiz so your formula is tailored to *your* needs. Plus! It only takes ten minutes to use per session, as opposed to the standard half hour.

    3. Active Wow Teeth Whitening Charcoal Toothpaste prioritizes ease-of-use if powder doesn't do it for you, but still gives you the same *brilliant* results. Tl;dr: it has all the same whitening benefits (hello, activated charcoal) just with zero mess.

    4. Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips mold to your teeth with their no-slip design to dramatically lift even years of stains. Their widely-loved bleaching formula works overtime so you can see results FAST.

    5. Or! Crest 3D White Teeth Whitening Strips Kit combines their famous strips *with* an LED light to increase effectiveness in removing stains and brightening teeth. This is the kind of multitasking I actually find rewarding.

    6. Tarte Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen works on-the-go to help give your grin a boost — not to mention its soft-bristle brush works well even on uneven teeth thanks to its 360° application. AND it's bleach-free, which is great for avoiding sensitivity!

    7. White Birch Activated White Charcoal Teeth Whitening Toothpaste gently removes plaque and staining with its unique *white* charcoal formula that's been extracted from birch trees. It has a creamy consistency to make reaching every nook and cranny easy, plus its jojoba oil leaves your teeth extra shiny and polished.

    9. AsaVea Teeth Whitening Pens use carbamide peroxide (typically gentler than hydrogen peroxide) to give you pearly whites without costing you a lot of *green*. Their soft-bristle brushes are designed to fully coat evenly with minimal effort — all while you go about your day.

    13. FineVine Charcoal Teeth Whitening Toothpaste minimizes the effort it takes to get brighter smiles, thanks to its easy-to-use (and vegan!) paste formula. Plus, its minty flavors make brushing your teeth actually enjoyable.

    14. Uncle Harry's Natural Products Remineralization Kit corrects and prevents continued loss of tooth enamel. Not only does this three-step routine balance your mouth's pH levels, strengthen teeth, and freshen breath, but it effectively whitens your smile as an added bonus. Happy mouth, happy you!
