The Truth About LED Whitening Kits and How I Keep My Teeth Pearly White

I'm sure you've seen tons of Instagram accounts advertising the new trend of LED whiting kits. Maybe you have even wondered yourself if they actually worked. Well I'm here to give you the 100% unbiased truth about the LED whiting kits and give you a few tips and tricks on how I get and keep my teeth so white!

The answer is YES they do really work.

I have tried about 3 different LED Whitening Kit companies, and to be completely honest they all generally work the same. What you do need to figure out though is what teeth whitening kit is best for YOU!

If you have sensitive teeth (like me) then you will need to find a brand that caters to that. If the taste is a big factor for you then that's something to look into as well. I've noticed the LED whiting kits selling from all ranges in prices - my advice... don't over pay and don't under spend! This is a product for your teeth and it does go in your mouth so don't be too cheap about but also do a bit of research since they are all generally alike and you wouldn't want to pay double for the same working product.

I am currently using White with Style and what made this brand stand out the most for me was the fact they had multiple flavors! I am currently using the watermelon flavor, and although I don't taste the watermelon resemblance at all, it does taste WAY better than the original peroxide flavor that other companies use. I also haven't had any problems with my teeth getting sensitive after whiting!

White with Style's flavors range from Mint, Cotton Candy, Strawberry, Coconut, Bubble Mint, Birthday Cake, Sour Apple, Tangerine, Watermelon, Peroxide Free Mint or Peroxide Free Cotton Candy. They also have Limited Edition flavors depending on the time of year.

I can't wait to give the Cotton Candy flavor a try next!

If you're a bit skeptical of what brand to try or don't know where to begin looking I highly recommend White with Style. They also hooked me up with a discount code to share with friends (but you know I'm going to share with ya'll) which makes the whitening package only $28.00 which is 90% off - crazy I know!

Along with whitening once or twice a week I of course brush my teeth in the morning and before bed. This is NOT a replacement for brushing your teeth - don't be lazy girlllll.

For the last year I have been loving the GetQuip toothbrush which is a thin electric tooth brush. With the GetQuip toothbrush you get 2 toothpastes (regular and travel size), a toothbrush holder that you can attach to you mirror or wall (I didn't think I would use this but WOW I am obsessed lol) and a little tube to put your toothbrush head in while you travel.

To be completely honest I don't really like the toothpaste at all. It is a pain to get out and the flavor isn't super minty (I'm a minty toothpaste person). I use the travel size quite often when I have long flights just because the size is so convenient but I definitely wouldn't say buy the toothbrush because of the toothpaste benefit.

In addition to this I also follow up with an oldie (but a goodie) that my mom taught me which is brushing with baking soda. Can't say I do it much since using the LED whitening kits but it definitely helps if you do it regularly!
