Easy to apply. Whitening portion of the kit only takes 20 minutes. The follow-up recovery gel takes an additional 10 minutes. Cost-effective compared to other brands. Minimal sensitivity issues. May see results within three applications. Comes with remineralization gel that helps if the product makes your teeth sensitive. Has decent taste compared to most.
Included mouth trays are a little hard to mold to teeth. Bulky compared to average whitening strips. The method itself could be tedious and time-consuming for some users.
No light needed. Apply to your pre-existing teeth whitening trays, or use like a toothpaste and brush with it. Can squeeze in a ‘quickie’ whitening session almost anytime. Can use inside an Invisalign retainer to get a very tight fit against the teeth. Just like the tubes you get from the dentist but bigger and cheaper. Smooth in application.
Could burn gums, causing blisters and irritation. Product may solidify after a few days.
Manufacturer claims this is the strongest formula for the deepest stains. The advantage is there is no pain, stinging, or sensitivity. Can possibly use Invisalign retainers with gel. Add a little dot to each setting. A stronger solution than most but some users may not have any sensitivity. Try using every third day and you could definitely see results after a week. Very little amount of product goes a long way. Comes with three syringes.
Does not work as quickly as whitening strips. Whitens only a little bit and causes sensitivity to both gums and teeth.
Each syringe gives you enough gel for two treatments (upper and lower). Wearing 10-15 minutes three times a day will get great results without causing sensitivity. It will bleach the teeth after about three nights to the desired whiteness.
You have to be careful not to get too much product in the tray or it will irritate the gums. May cause some sensitivity at the gum line and the teeth.
Professional results. Makes teeth 2-8 shades whiter in seven days. Made in USA. Ingredients are gluten-free, kosher, certified organic, sulfur-free, and paraben-free. Instructions are very easy to understand. Kit is great quality. Comes with two types of mouth trays. Doesn't hurt like whitening strips and doesn't make teeth feel weak afterward.
May burn gums and some users may find light, as well as Comfort Tray, hard to use. Universal tray should be labeled universal to avoid confusion with other tray included.

If you’re looking to seriously whiten your teeth, teeth whitening gels might be a good option. These sets whiten your teeth with gel that is placed either in a mouth tray or directly on your teeth. Directions vary depending on the brand with how long to leave the gel on your teeth, but in general it’s 10-30 minutes. Some gel kits come with an LED light that can help speed up the lightening process as well. Whitening gels can make teeth more sensitive or burn your gums, so always follow the included directions. Some sets come with remineralization gel to help improve any sensitivity that results from the whitening gel.
