How Long Does It Take to Whiten Teeth?

Whiter, brighter teeth shouldn’t have to consume hours of your day. But exactly how long does it take to whiten teeth? Well, that varies. Whether you have time leading up to a wedding or need a quick fix for a last-minute meeting, you have choices. 

It’s entirely possible to seek an in-office teeth whitening procedure. But since they can take anywhere from half an hour to 90 minutes through multiple sessions that require you to schedule time out of your day and drive there, we believe there’s a better way. Whether you have an upcoming wedding and desire to look your absolute best in photos or just want a confidence boost, there are many ways you can get whiter teeth in the comfort of your own home. 

With GO SMILE’s at-home teeth whitening products, we make the process easier and more affordable. Shortening your time, here are several GO SMILE products to get your teeth whiter faster. And how long does it take to whiten teeth with these products? We answer that and more! 

Whitening Toothpaste

Whitening toothpaste is a very inexpensive option for those who desire pearlier whites. Formulated with enzymes and abrasives like blue covarine, the standard whitening toothpaste gently scrapes away extrinsic stains as you brush. But that’s only extrinsic stains, not intrinsic. 

However, GO SMILE offers whitening toothpaste, like the foaming toothpaste, which offers an advanced formula (teeth whitening gel with Hyperox technology), penetrating the teeth below the surface stains. Plus, the foam whitening toothpaste is proven to be 10 times more effective than the leading whitening toothpaste. Unlike blue covarine active whiteners that only give the illusion of whiter teeth, GO SMILE’s foaming toothpaste uses highly-effective, abrasive ingredients.

Timeframe: Assuming you brush at least twice a day using a whitening toothpaste, it can take anywhere from two to six weeks to get a brighter smile. For optimal results, however, a blue-light electric toothbrush is highly recommended! And, of course, it can also be rushed along using a full at-home teeth whitening kit.


Teeth Whitening Kits

BLU Hands-Free Toothbrush & Whitening Device

Teeth whitening kits offer much more than just whitening toothpaste to get the job done. Complete with hands-free trays and a highly concentrated teeth whitening formula, they can also get the job done rather efficiently. Blue light technology, especially, can accelerate your whitening journey and give your at-home teeth whitening kits an extra boost. 

Generally speaking, with whitening kits, you want to use the full time allowed per session. Typically this ranges anywhere from two to four hours per day. While many people cringe at the thought for fear of sensitive gums, you never need to worry about GO SMILE products! All GO SMILE products offer a sensitivity-free experience. 

Timeline: So, how long does it take to whiten teeth with an at-home kit? With the entire kit and caboodle, and following instructions, you can whiten up to 7 shades in 7 days. Now that’s pretty impressive if we do say so!


Teeth Whitening Pen

Teeth Whitening Pen Before and After

A teeth whitening pen is an excellent option for those last-minute touch-ups before meetings and photos. Retrieve the pen from a purse or jacket and twist and apply to your teeth’s surface for a just-brushed look. Plus, the teeth whitening serum solution also prevents new stains from setting, such as coffee, red wine and berries. 

Ultimately, teeth whitening pens work instantly! But the more you use them to maintain those pearly whites after your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine, the whiter your teeth will stay.

Timeframe: Pronto! These pens are designed to give you a brighter, cleaner looking smile, even after drinking or chewing on dark-colored drinks and foods. 


As you can see, at-home teeth whitening offers easy ways to achieve a brighter smile – and as quickly as possible!  

And how long does teeth whitening last once you have your pearly whites? As a rule of thumb, it will take anywhere from six months to two or three years. But that depends on the type of teeth whitening routine you choose.  Find out how to make your white teeth last as long as possible!
