It's hard to smile if your teeth are yellow or brown. Over the years, surface stains from foods and beverages, think coffee, wine, spaghetti sauce, can leave little to grin about. Thankfully, achieving bright, white teeth is easier than ever. And you don't have to step foot in your dentist's office or hop into that uncomfortable chair. That's because teeth whiteners have come a long way.

You no longer have to rely simply on strips. (Although Crest's version still makes a major difference.) Now you can choose from an array of at-home options. There are LED-focused kits boasting dentist-grade whiteners, prefilled trays, pens, wireless devices and electric toothbrushes. You can even opt for dissolvable strips if you hate peeling off the standard model.

But that still leaves you with lots to pick from. So how do you decide what's best for you? Simply scroll down for a breakdown of the best teeth whiteners at a variety of price points.
