At-home teeth whitening solutions have become a significant focus on the beauty industry, but the products you choose to achieve that whiter smile really matter …
A slew of new online whitening kits, expensive professional treatments, and a bombardment of trendy, unfounded fads prove that teeth whitening has never been more popular or more challenging to navigate.
As dentists, Dr Lisa and Dr Vanessa Creaven know a thing or two about the dos and don’ts of at-home whitening. In fact, it’s what inspired them to found their oral health and beauty company Spotlight Oral Care back in 2016.
“Our dental patients were looking for a safe, effective, affordable way to whiten their teeth at home,” explains Dr. Lisa. “At the time, we couldn’t stand over anything available on the market. We created our Teeth Whitening Strips for patients first, and since then, everything we have created has the same focus – oral health, meets oral beauty.”
At-home teeth whitening solutions have become a significant focus on the beauty industry, but as Dr Vanessa points out, the products you choose to achieve that whiter smile really matter.
“It’s all about the clinical formulations,” she explains. “You’ve got to have active ingredients that work for you, that won’t harm your tooth or oral health, and that won’t cause sensitivity.” With that in mind, the sisters and dentists offer their essential at-home whitening guide for every smile.
The Hero Whitening Treatment
“Our hero product is the Teeth Whitening Strips,” says Dr Vanessa, “They’re easy and discreet to wear, so you can continue with your day while the active ingredients get to work. The Hydrogen Peroxide formula gently dissolves stains over time, which is why we recommend using these strips once a day for 14 days. After that, you can top up whitening once a month and use our other whitening essentials to maintain and boost your smile.”
Whitening on the Go
“Whitening on the go is even more important than ever, now that the world is reopening,” says Dr Lisa. “Our Teeth Whitening Pen exploded on TikTok earlier this year because it gives amazing results in just 20 minutes. It’s perfect for topping up whitening in between meetings or while traveling, after a glass of wine or a coffee. This is my handbag life-saver.”
“Every great oral care routine needs a hero toothpaste,” says Dr Vanessa. “Our Toothpaste for Whitening Teeth strengthens and whitens teeth gradually. Just a pea-sized amount is enough, and it comes in a 100% fully recyclable, sugarcane toothpaste tube. We recommend using it with the Whitening setting on our Sonic Toothbrush for best results.”
For those who want a quick and easy whitening solution, Dr Vanessa suggests an active ingredient mouthwash. “Mouthwash is one of the easiest ways to freshen breath and remove stains after coffee or in between meals. Swish our clinically proven Mouthwash for Whitening Teeth for one minute, and don’t rinse your mouth after, as the active ingredients will continue to work. Like our toothpaste, it’s infused with Hydrogen Peroxide for that effective, whitening result, and it’s alcohol-free too so it won’t cause sensitivity.”
