Budget Teeth Whitening

Turn the pages of any glossy magazine on the shop shelves for both men and women and guaranteed what will stand out above any other feature is the glistening healthy smiles of the celebrities that adorn the pages. Today, we’re going to talking about teeth whitening for any budget

Instagram and Tik Tok all feature reels and videos of celebrities showing off their beaming white smiles whilst talking into the camera.

Celebrities and the rich and famous have stunning bright white smiles that make their eyes shine and will compliment any outfit. A beautiful white smile is often associated with going hand in hand with success and assurance in life.

It’s ok for them though, isn’t it? They have the money to spend, and their business (tv, reality, magazine shoots, presenting, movies, even the sporting world) calls for the perfect smile but what about the everyday Joe or Joanna? That’s you or me!

How do we really afford to get that winning smile, a smile that creates an abundance of confidence, a smile not hidden behind a closed mouth grin or one from behind your hand? Wipe away those preconceived thoughts about how costly this might be and read on for how you too can shine with your bright white smile, but on an affordable budget!

The truth is, if you go to the dentist and have your teeth whitened there then you are looking at anything between £250 for a take home kit and up to and beyond £1000 for anything else. Luckily for those that are on a budget and want that 100-watt smile there are other avenues to head down and these actually work. Book affordable £99 one hour teeth whitening treatment here.

So, whether you are looking for that celebrity smile or looking to correct an imperfection on your teeth it does not have to be that expensive.

The first thing to know to start the process is to avoid eating or drinking anything that will stain those pearly whites! So, avoiding tea, coffee, cola and red wine is the key (or just drink them through a straw! Haha)

Brushing twice a day with any fluoride toothpaste will keep stains at bay too! Add in some regular flossing and you are on your way to a healthier mouth and smile!

The Real Bargain Teeth Whitening For Any Budget

Really feeling strapped for cash? Then this option is absolutely for you. Once a week make up a paste of juice from a lime or lemon and mix with bicarbonate of soda. Scoop it onto your toothbrush and brush those teeth thoroughly. You will need to swill your mouth out at the end as the taste is not that pleasant but that is a small price to pay! Over time you will start to see your teeth whiten shade by shade. This option comes in at around 50p per week – now I’m sure you’ll agree that is teeth whitening on a budget albeit can be quite a bit of hassle!

Whitening Toothpaste

Most big brand toothpaste manufacturers offer whitening toothpaste for everyday use. These cost anywhere up to £25 (Colgate Max White Ultimate) but also as little as £1.50 (again Colgate Advanced White).

The deal with Charcoal

Activated charcoal helps whiten teeth and gives good oral health – double whammy!

The ingredient works by changing the Ph balance in your mouth in turn preventing cavities to form, bad breath and gum disease but it also absorbs plaque and all that stuff that stains your teeth. Many toothpaste manufacturers are now adding it to the everyday toothpastes (Dr Organic Charcoal Toothpaste – £4.99) or you can find powdered activated charcoal to use too like Unnis Active Whitening at £12.96.

The Strips

These strips literally strip away the discolour on your teeth. The whitening strips absorb into the enamel and oxidise the teeth removing the stains on the teeth, they are also said to be able to prevent the generation of new stains.

Some strips contain hydrogen peroxide in them, and others don’t so check the ingredients before you buy depending on your preference.

Hydrogen peroxide can be used in strips as it will generate a bleaching effect on the teeth. Check the packaging or details on the site you are buying from to make sure the strips meet UK and EU Regulations to know the product is safe and tested.

The strips can be found anywhere on the internet by doing a small search but here are some brands for you to give you an idea; Dazzle White strips cost from £1.99 per strip, and Tooth Fairy White strips can cost anywhere between £8.99 to £24.99 depending on quantity.

Moulds and Gels

The online world is full of different brands and types of gels, but the concept is the same across the board. Again, these gels will contain hydrogen peroxide or a close counterpart in carbamide peroxide, these ingredients interact with the molecules on the teeth and ultimately make the teeth brighter and whiter.

The gels are used with a mould, and these can be obtained from your dentist, or you can buy standard mouth moulds. Obviously, the ones from your dental professional are a better fit as they are made from your own teeth moulds but more expensive, so this depends on your budget. You can also purchase smart home kits for just £49.95 here.

Used overnight or for an hour a day until you get your required shade of bright and white! Gel costs vary but Dr Fresh Teeth Whitening Pens start at £6.39 and iWhite.

We sell the highest quality USA approved whitening gels for £5 each 3 ml syringes and you can place your order by just giving us a call on 01702 742 077.

Instant Teeth Whitening comes in at £29.95.

The world of Bright Blue Lights

The big question is should you invest in a bright blue mouth light to use with your gel or not, do they work, and what is the cost? It’s a big trend at the moment to use these lights and many celebrities are paid to advertise these on their Instagram and social media accounts, aimed at the thousands of followers they have to their feeds.

The jury across the board from the professionals is out on these gadgets, some say it will make the gel activate faster and some say they have seen no evidence of that and if the gel works anyway why invest in one? If you fancy your chances here is an example of the cost; the Rio Beauty Whitening kit comes in at just shy of £50 but you can get them as low as £12.99 from Rapid Light.
