Dental hygienists are 'completely amazed' with this $13 teeth whitener — and it's nearly 60% off

In an ideal world, all we'd need to get our pearly whites, well, pearly, is to brush, floss and visit our dentist every so often. But the reality is, to achieve the kind of smile you see celebs sporting on the red carpet, you have to put in a bit more effort. If you're interested in a 1,000-watt smile, Amazon shoppers say they've found the key to a sparkling grin. The Cali White Vegan Teeth Whitening Kit is designed to brighten up even sensitive chompers using a vegan formula. And right now it's on sale for a wallet-friendly $13, down from $32 — that's almost 60% off.

This kit costs a fraction of an in-office treatment — and it uses the same ingredients.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

Not only is this kit marked down to within a couple dollars of its all-time low price, but getting your teeth whitened professionally can cost up to $1,200 a treatment. In comparison, a mere $13 is definitely the kind of deal that makes us smile!

Why do I need this? 🤔

Here's how the magic happens: Cali White's made-in-the-USA formula is packed with 35% carbamide peroxide, which is the same ingredient the dentist uses. It also works quickly — we're talking results-after-first-use quickly. You'll see the full effect after about a week of daily 30-minute treatments.

It's super easy to use: Just add the formula to the tray using the syringe, then insert it into your mouth and turn on the activating light. Once your session is done, rinse off the excess. And you can do all of that at home instead of going to the dentist's office.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 6,000 five-star shoppers back up the kit's claims — even the pros.

Pros 👍

"Cali White stole my heart!" shared a dental professional. "As a hygienist, I'm always curious about any new products, especially the whitening ones! Cali White takes the prize! I've tried several take-home whitening kits but those always made my teeth extra sensitive ... Cali White is gentle, easy to use and you can see the results right in front of your eyes! I was completely amazed."

"This stuff works like nothing I've ever seen or used before!" said another fan. "I'll admit I was skeptical, very skeptical. I've tried so many products with no results. I'm a smoker and all I drink is coffee so my teeth definitely needed help. After one use I saw results! I've used it five times now and my teeth are so much better. I'm shocked, truthfully. I opted to go 30 minutes each use and I seriously couldn't be happier."

Wrote another rave reviewer: "My fiancé is a dentist. I think this is the best over-the-counter teeth whitener. I don’t have any sensitivity. It brightens my teeth. I'm a daily coffee drinker and I use it about once weekly. I've even suggested that my fiancé carry this in his office!"

Cons 👎

If you have a sensitive jaw, take note: "The gel rinses off immediately and leaves my teeth feeling like freshly buffed marble," wrote another five-star fan. "The only thing, aside from drool, that bothered me was that it caused my jaw some pain, but I expect that would happen with any tray whitening system and it's a personal problem — I don’t think most people would have an issue with pain."

"I honestly decided to try this on a whim because I hadn't [whitened] my teeth in a while and was tired of using strips," said a final shopper. I will say it gets a little annoying to have such a big blue light in your mouth for 30 minutes because my mouth is small, but it works! Still better than strips and it's not expensive."

The brand recommends wearing the whitening trays for 10 to 30 minutes a day for seven to 10 days for best results.
