Best teeth whitening strips for 2020 if you want a gleaming, bright smile
We've all got those pleasures we like to indulge in regularly, whether it's tea, coffee, curry, or the odd glass of red or two.
But, while all these goodies taste delicious, they're also responsible for leaving a build-up of stains on your teeth that can make them look more yellow than you might like.
The easy answer? The best teeth whitening strips will whiten and brighten those ivories without the high costs of dentist treatments. Okay, you could cut out all those indulges, but life is for living, so why not try whitening strips instead?
At-home strips may contain hydrogen peroxide that works to take your teeth from dull to dazzling, but if you have sensitive teeth and want to avoid it, there's plenty of options without.
We've rounded up our top teeth whitening picks below so you'll be ready for your close-up faster than you can say 'cheese'…
