Saving Money on Teeth Whitening

Category Advice

I have been purchasing Crest Night Effects tooth whitener and using it with great success. However, anyone who has ever bought these products know just how expensive they can be even with coupons.


Crest Night Effects comes with a small vial of whitener and fourteen brushes for application. After using all the brushes, I was left with quite a bit of whitener in the vial. Cleaning the Crest brushes has proven difficult. They become stiff and not pliable. I have tried every way to clean them and still be safe with them returning to your mouth. Nothing has worked.

I purchased a package of children's art brushes at Big Lots for a dollar, they can be bought in a dollar store also. They are a little bigger than the originals, but work exceptionally well. I was able to extend my whitener an additional two weeks. I use the money saved to splurge on my favorite bath wash or face moisturizer.

Enjoy the savings and the beautiful smile.

My dentist suggested swishing and rinsing with a small amount of peroxide, said it is a lot cheaper!

I have been using peroxide for years and my teeth are whiter than white.

Frequent toothbrushing helps whiten your teeth. I make sure to brush after each time I eat, and especially after each cup of coffee or tea. I keep a travel toothbrush and paste in my purse for this, so no matter where I am I can brush. Once a day, I add a little baking soda to my toothpaste -- this adds an abrasive action which helps loosen stains. Also once a day -- but not right after using baking soda! -- I rinse my mouth with hydrogen peroxide. Swish around in your mouth for at least one minute. Be sure not to swallow any -- it burns all the way down!
