23 Of The Best Teeth Whiteners You Can Get On Amazon

Sadly, your dentist will probably still ask how often you floss. The products in this post were updated in February 2018.

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. An inexpensive pack of charcoal that may be dirty but will leave your teeth pearly.,

It's gourmet USP Food Grade, vegan, and gluten free!! You can even use it as a face mask when you're not brushing your teeth!

Promising review: "I love this! I have extremely sensitive teeth and so I was using a $30 prescription toothpaste. That prescription toothpaste still made my teeth hurt. So I switched to charcoal and not only is there no pain, but it has whitened my teeth!" —Allison

Price: $6.99 // Rating 4.4 out of 5

2. A paste specialized for sensitivity that gently whitens and strengthens delicate teeth.

Promising review: "I have crazy sensitive teeth so this is really the only thing I can use. I heavily recommend this product for anyone with particularly sensitive teeth. Sensodyne also has another line of toothpaste that has slightly different caps (they're flush to the tube rather than tapered) that I find so awful I fear it may dissuade others with sensitive teeth away from the company, but they're completely different and this one really is a wonderful product." —Alys Anemone

Price: $5.24 // Rating: 4.3 out of 5

3. A natural combination of charcoal powder, baking soda, and lemon essential oil so you can build healthy gums and teeth without spending all your time in the dentist chair.

It's specially made for sensitive teeth — no bleach!!

Promising review: "I don't have the straightest teeth, but I certainly feel better about my smile when they're white. I drink coffee at least three times a day, so surface stains build up quickly. I noticed immediately that my mouth felt amazingly clean. After 24 hours, I noticed a huge improvement in my teeth sensitivity. After 72 hours, it was non-existent. Entirely gone — something I had battled with my entire adult life. So awesome!" —Salem Webster

Price: $24.97 // Rating: 4.3 out of 5

4. A strange yet effective stick to scrub away stains and yellowing.

Promising review: "I was shocked to experience how good my teeth and gums felt afterwards. I did it again the next day and I could sense that I was truly getting off plaque that my regular brush wasn't getting. I feel like I've just gone to the dentist. I can't wait to go to my dental hygienist and have her not find anything to do!!! It's like a really good massage. Miswak is just fabulous!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $19.99 // Rating: 4.5 out of 5

5. A flavored charcoal powder, because deep cleaning your choppers shouldn't involve feeling like you're eating dirt.,

Its four flavors are peppermint, cinnamint, spearmint, and orange! AND they're cruelty-free and organic!

Promising review: "This is all natural, tastes great, and ACTUALLY WORKS. Great packaging and amount of product for the cost. My teeth looked whiter even after the first use. It doesn't have any abrasive whitening agents that can irritate your gums or make your teeth sensitive. Your teeth feel and look mega, super clean when you're done." —Spoiled Meat

Price: $10.99+ // Rating: 4.1 out of 5

6. A multipurpose, all-natural charcoal powder that'll gently brighten teeth and freshen breath without causing any sensitivity.

Promising review: "Holy cow does this stuff work! I was a smoker for 10 years, my teeth were stained with that tint of yellow. I got this and ran straight to my bathroom to try it. One brushing and my teeth are 100% whiter. I couldn't believe my eyes." —Amazon Customer

Price: $14.99+ // Rating: 4.6 out of 5

7. A set of Crest whitening strips so you can kick back and watch Netflix while they mold to your teeth and do all the *heavy lifting*.

These bad boys can lift up to *10 years* of staining when used once day for 30 minutes (usually in about four weeks)!

Promising review: "So I'm always skeptical! I have wanted to try these for a while, but $30 was still a bit steep. Finally I couldn't stand how yellow my teeth got! (coffee and cigarettes daily) Whitening toothpaste did nothing. So I gave these a go and I am SO GLAD I did! I'm not even done with my very first box and my teeth are so much whiter! I use these once per day before bed. They stay on well and don't ooze (major plus)! Every day I take a picture and compare it to the first one! Amazing progress!!" —Brooke

Price: $29.90 // Rating: 4 out of 5

8. A whitening polish that combines melaleuca oil and calcium to gently penetrate and remove excess plaque and bacteria for a shinier smile.

Promising review: "For cleaning I think this is the best ever. I have a million dental issues and am prone to cavities like no one else I know. When I use the Melaeuca Polish I instantly feel the difference. My teeth get that glassy professional cleaning feel and actually appear slightly whiter, which I wasn't expecting. My gums also feel better and my mouth just feels cleaner and fresher all day. That it is natural and tastes good is a plus." —Jelly84

Price: $14.49 // Rating: 4.1 out of 5

9. A professional whitening kit for a hands-free experience while you watch TV, read a book, maybe just stare at yourself in a mirror (?) all while your teeth get a major makeover.,

This includes: two whitening gels, two remineralization gels, two whitening mouth trays, one LED blue light, and fitting instructions!

Promising review: "I've been looking for an at-home teeth whitening kit and decided to try this Dental Duty one. I previously tried strips that were uncomfortable and slipped off my teeth. The two pre-molded mouth guards are soft and comfortable and the LED connects to them easily. This kit comes with color chart to watch the progress as your teeth become whiter. Gel does not have any strong taste or odor and has not caused any teeth sensitivity." —LMW

Price: $24.99 // Rating: 4.1 out of 5

10. An all-natural mineral powder that may make your teeth black at first, but all you'll see after is white, white, white.

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. In just two brushings, it removed the brown/black stains I had from using liquid iron supplements that even my hygienist couldn't get off my teeth. It removed all of the tea stains on my teeth in less than a week. It looks like I had a very thorough dental cleaning and professional teeth whitening done. In fact, I've had several people ask me where I got my teeth whitened and how much it cost, just because it is that noticeable of a difference. My teeth feel super clean and smooth. Even first thing in the morning, I don't have that gross, fuzzy teeth feeling." —Dazie

Price: $19.99 // Rating: 4.5 out of 5

11. A set of two-step whitening pastes so any dental hygiene enthusiasts (hello, all of us) will feel more than satisfied every night.,

The first paste provides a deep clean and freshens your mouth, while the second whitens your teeth! *Double whammy*. Their micro-cleansing whiteners gently scrub away surface stains without harmful scratching.

Promising review: "Unbelievably superior to other whitening toothpastes. After brushing, I feel like I just came from a dental cleaning. No kidding. It cleans exceptionally well and there are very noticeable whitening benefits. I won't use anything else." —sartx

Price: $12.99 // Rating: 4 out of 5

12. A remineralization kit to help strengthen and correct thin tooth enamel with revitalizing oils and minerals.

Promising review: "After using the products as directed, my mouth feels incredibly clean, like after-the-dentist clean! I had some gum sensitivity before using these products, but now it is totally gone. My mouth also used to get dry a couple hours after brushing with commercial toothpastes, but not at all since using Uncle Harry's. My teeth are much more white — like many shades whiter." —Stacey F

Price: $19.95 // Rating: 4.4 out of 5

13. A jar of natural coconut charcoal powder for rubbing away all your years of drinking coffee and red wine without the harmful effects of bleach.

Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. I used it for about a week before I was completely sold. Day one I saw a change, however, I wanted to be sure I wasn't buying into the madness. The results are certainly REAL! I would recommend this product 10 times out of 10." —Steve

Price: $24.79 // Rating: 4.4 out of 5

14. A tooth powder made of charcoal and raw cacao that also battles bad breath.

Promising review: "I was so impressed that I decided to write a review. I was a little apprehensive at first but I wanted something natural to whiten my teeth and Minimo Blanc delivered." —Amazon Customer

Price: $14.95 // Rating: 4.0 out of 5

15. An effective charcoal powder, because seeing your sink turn black is scary, but watching your teeth turn the exact opposite color makes it worth it.

Plus, it's natural and cruelty-free!

Promising review: "This is such a nice alternative to those tooth whitening kits! I have only used this a few days, and I can tell you that I am already seeing results. There is literally no taste or smell to it, and it does not leave my teeth with any sensitivity. Once you rinse, your mouth actually feels nice and clean." —Brandy

Price: $13.95 // Rating 4.1 out of 5

16. A set of activating rods to get professional results without emptying your wallet.

Promising review: "I was really skeptical about this product. I've been using the rinse and toothpaste and accelerator for about two months now and saw results within the first week. I have some stubborn teeth that were still a little less white than the others and with the first treatment with the professional activating rods I actually saw a BIG DIFFERENCE. I couldn't believe how much of a difference this made from the very first time I used this product! I highly recommend it, and it's so easy to use and so quick! It takes literally 30 seconds longer than brushing your teeth. I love it!" —Jeannie

Price: $39 // Rating: 4.2 out of 5

17. A whitening pre-rinse mouthwash for re-mineralizing and brightening teeth with nothing more than a swish and a gargle.

It's gentle enough to work with all dental restorations (bonding, caps, veneers, and dentures) without harmful bleaches or abrasives!

Promising review: "I've been using Supersmile for several years and love it!! I have very sensitive teeth with receding gums, but Supersmile toothpaste and the whitening pre-rinse do NOT hurt my teeth. My dentist always tells me, 'Whatever you're using, keep on using it because your teeth look great.' My teeth are super white because of the Supersmile toothpaste and pre-rinse and I have never had a dentist whiten them, nor have I ever used whitening strips or anything like that." —Paula A Ford

Price: $18 // Rating: 4.1 out of 5

18. An anti-plaque toothpaste that's popular in Europe, so you know it's fancy.

Promising review: "It does not hurt your gums, it is very gentle and effective on sensitive gums. Highly recommended brand in Europe. I recommend using it with Curaprox toothbrush #5460. After a few days, you will never go back to the ordinary toothbrush and toothpaste." —Monia

Price: $15.98 // Rating: 4.3 out of 5

19. A vegan charcoal powder for getting dramatic results while leaving the earth exactly the same.,

No chemicals, bleach, or artificial ingredients equals lots of reasons to smile.

Promising review: "Very easy to use and has no bad taste! I have used whitening straps many times in the past and as a result I have very sensitive teeth and gums when it comes to strip whitening methods. I wanted a product that was all-natural and effective while giving me a pain-free experience. I have found it 100% with ToothBrite!! Follow the instructions and after your first brush you will see results! After my very first use I could already see results! Perfect for anyone looking to keep up their pearly whites!" —Sara Abraham

Price: $14.97 // Rating: 4.3 out of 5

20. A minty charcoal toothpaste to scrub off unwanted yellowing while *actually* enjoying yourself — mint flavor AND no mess? Lifesaver.,

It's completely natural, plant-based, and cruelty-free!

Promising review: "This is the only brand of charcoal toothpaste I will ever buy. I’ve tried so very many different brands of charcoal toothpaste and this is, BY FAR, the best there is! It has a wonderful flavor — I’ve tried both flavors and they are equally as good, and doesn’t leave a funky aftertaste in your mouth like most other toothpastes. You can eat and drink right after you brush and it won’t affect the taste of your food or drink. It whitens very quickly, as well! My husband and I both saw results within a week!" —Ashley

Price: $9.99 // Rating: 4 out of 5

21. A rinse whose formula is especially great if you have super-sensitive or sore gums so just about anyone can benefit from this effortless routine.

Promising review: "I started using Periogen when it first came on the market several years ago. At that time my gums were a mess. I had close to a dozen pockets and my gums would bleed even when I would lightly brush my teeth. I was going to the dentist every three months for cleaning and suffered through several deep cleanings. Not only were the deep cleanings torturous and time-consuming, but they also emptied my wallet. Two months after using Periogen my hygienist was amazed at the improvement in the health of my gums. Not only had my pockets significantly closed, but there was no bleeding, where before my gums would bleed from her just charting them." — JD92118

Price: $46.99 // Rating: 4.4 out of 5

22. An LED light that connects to your smartphone (goodbye sitting by an outlet!) and cuts the time it takes to use whitening strips in half.,

Not only does this make whitening sessions faster, but it saves you money! No more replacing entire kits when you run out of gel. It comes with 16 bright LEDs and three adapters for iPhone, Android and USB (compatible w/ 4G and newer) and works with both strips and gel!!

Promising review: "A friend recommended this product to me and now I can't stop smiling to show off my teeth! I've previously used white strips but my teeth are very sensitive so I don't use them often enough to maintain white teeth. With this light I only had to keep the strips on for a fraction of the time and got awesome results. People have been complimenting my bright teeth all week and someone even asked if I had veneers. Very happy with the product!" —Lea M

Price: $22.99 // Rating: 4.3 out of 5

23. A whitening pen for on the go because ain't nobody got time for long bleaching sessions.

Promising review: "I am a coffee and wine drinker. I know that this is not good for my teeth but I can’t help myself. Fortunately, I decided to try these teeth whitening pens. What attracted me to them is that it says that they are professional strength. I don’t think that just any teeth whitening product will be able to remove some of the yellow staining which got embedded into my teeth. I’ve been using it for about four days, and finally I'm beginning to see some results. Slowly, yellow coloring is disappearing and my teeth are becoming brighter. Another thing that I like about this product is that it does not make my teeth look unnaturally white, but instead provides gradual color improvement. I am a fan." —Albert Leach
