2. Home whitening trays

Also known as whitening kits are very popular and effective.

 A word about whitening toothpaste and mouthwash...

Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are not considered true whitening products.  They can make your teeth look whiter because they remove  some surface stain but don't change the color of your teeth.
