Teeth Whitening Products
The use of teeth whitening products has been on the rise in recent years. Whiter teeth make us look healthier and younger. There are numerous options to choose from when looking to have whiter teeth. In-office whitening, over-the-counter gels, whiting trays, strips, toothpastes and rinses are all available to the public today.
Whitening agents vary greatly among these products and so do their results. The most dramatic results are from an in-office procedure done by a dentist.
Rinses offer the least dramatic results, with a single shade difference gained through months of use. Regardless of whitening product or treatment, it can be found at a discount when properly researched and planned for.
Whitening treatments performed in a dental office are the most expensive option. Locally, coupons may be offered by individual offices for the whitening. Local newspapers, radio stations and even websites such as groupon.com, are good resources for finding coupons for local whitening services.
These coupons can be worth as much as half off the regular price. Discounts may be given by individual offices for cash upfront payments. Dentists that are new to an area may offer take-home kits for whitening to attract new patients. Check local newspapers and bulletin boards for this type of information.
Whitening toothpastes and whitening rinses are the least effective methods for whitening teeth. Most brands of toothpaste offer a variety that claims to whiten teeth.
Coupons in local papers
There are manufacturer’s coupons in every Sunday newspaper for these toothpastes. Additional coupons can be printed on-line from brand websites or websites such as coupons.com.
Digital coupons are available and can be added directly to a shopper’s reward card. When combined with shopping reward programs, such as CVS’s Extra Bucks program or Rite-Aid’s UP Rewards, these toothpastes can be purchase for very little money.
For example, in May 2011 Colgate MaxWhitening toothpaste is on sale at CVS for $ 2.77. By using the manufacturer’s coupon from the May 1st Smart Source insert worth 75 cents, the Colgate MaxWhitening Toothpaste now costs $2.02 to purchase, while giving an ExtraBuck Reward for $2.77 to use on the next in-store purchase. Crest, Arm & Hammer, Rembrandt and many others can be obtained the exact same way.
Strips and Gels
Many toothpaste brands offer over-the-counter whitening strips and whitening gels. These are more effective than the whitening toothpastes and can produce shade up to six times whiter. Manufacturers want consumers to try their products.
They put many coupons out there to entice the public to try it. There are several websites, such as shortcuts.com, cellfire.com, which offer digital coupons for whitening strips. These coupons are loaded directly to a shopping rewards card ready to use within an hour’s time. Newspaper inserts often have coupons for whitening strips, as well as store-issued savings booklets, such as the Walgreens Savings Book.
Contacting the manufacturer with questions about the product, whether through a phone call or by e-mail, will generally garner higher value coupons and possible free samples. Reward programs frequently run concurrent with the release of new newspaper insert coupons.
At Walgreens, Crest Whitening Strips are on sale for $49.99, with a $10.00 Register Reward offered for the next-in-store purchase. P & G released a $10.00 coupon for Crest3DWhite Professional Effects Whitestrips in the May 2011 P&GbrandSAVER newspaper insert. This cuts the cost of the whitening strip by 40 percent when combined with the Walgreens promotion.
Pre-filled Whitening Trays
Pre-filled whitening trays are another over-the-counter option for consumers. These whitening trays are capable of results comparable to whitening strips or whitening gels. Aquafresh and Rembrandt are two of the most well-known brands to offer whitening trays.
Many retailers have store branded trays for purchase at a small discount when compared to the name brands available. Paper coupons for whitening trays are a bit harder to come by, but both Aquafresh and Rembrandt offer high value coupons through their respective websites and affiliates.
Reward programs do run promotions including whitening trays, but not with the frequency of other whitening products.
