Full Answer

Paint-on tooth whiteners are not considered as effective as other whitening methods, such as tray-based methods and even white strips. In order to attain results, a product must contain high concentrations and be used for a long period of time. The paint-on whiteners do not provide this. They are effective as a temporary solution only.
