Yes, SmileDirectClub's teeth whitening products work on natural teeth. Their teeth whitening systems use a whitening agent and an LED (light-emitting diode) light to brighten the teeth.
The whitening agent is made with hydrogen peroxide. The LED light activates the whitening agent, causing a chemical reaction that lifts stains from the teeth.
We compiled reviews from four websites that offer SmileDirectClub teeth whitening products. From these sites, there were over 5,000 customer reviews.
Most of the reviews are positive, while a small percentage of them are negative or somewhere in the middle. Over 80 percent of Amazon reviews rate SmileDirectClub teeth whitening products 4 stars or above.
Many positive reviews say that the results come instantly or after a few uses. They also say the whitening products cause minimal to no sensitivity.
I can’t say enough good things about this whitening kit! I’ve used white strips for 10+ years and have always had success, but the process was time-consuming, messy, and I end up with a lot of tooth sensitivity and sore gums.Amazon reviewer
I have tried numerous whitening agents over the years, including baking soda and peroxide. None have worked as fast as this one. I used to smoke and still drink dark soda. After 3 uses, the difference is amazing and surprising.Walmart reviewer
Some people were not completely satisfied with the products. However, keep in mind that people who have thin enamel or dental restorations cannot whiten their teeth.
Some are also more prone to sensitivity than others (and sensitivity is a common side effect of all teeth whitening, even professional treatment). Neglecting to read the instructions carefully before use can also result in poor outcomes.
The pens are nice, but the mouthpiece didn’t work. At least they refunded me.Amazon reviewer
For me, the system would be easier if it were strips that you put on your teeth, or if the mouthpiece was the kind you put the gel into and then put your teeth into.Walmart reviewer

SmileDirectClub's active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. It is the bleaching agent in their whitening kits that helps people achieve brighter smiles.
Hydrogen peroxide passes into the tooth and breaks down discoloration that causes tooth stains. The LED light activates the peroxide, speeding up the bleaching process.
LED whitening is safe for at-home use. However, if you don't follow the manufacturer's instructions closely, teeth whitening can irritate the gums.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when using an LED teeth whitening system to prevent unwanted side effects.
Whitening your teeth with the Bright on kit is a simple process:
When using the LED accelerator light, ensure your power adapter is fully plugged into your phone's port. Wipe off any debris that may be present.
If the light is plugged into your phone, your device must remain active, not in sleeping mode or with a locked screen. Otherwise, the light may shut off prematurely. Unlock your phone and ensure it has at least 50% battery to power the LED light for the full treatment.
According to SmileDirect's website, you should whiten your teeth every morning and night for one week. After this, you’ll whiten them weekly every six months to maintain results.
These whitening pens contain the same enamel-safe whitening agent used by dentists for less than half the cost.
With the no-mess brush applicator, you have full control of the application as you paint the gel directly onto your teeth. Each treatment only takes 5 minutes, so it’s easy and convenient to get your best smile ever.
These premium teeth whitening pens work the same as any other over-the-counter system like trays or whitening strips. These pens use the same whitening formula as the teeth whitening kits, and allow oxygen to penetrate and lighten teeth enamel.
To use SmileDirectClub’s Teeth Whitening Pens, follow these simple steps:
You only need to use these pens for a week – once in the morning and once in the evening – to enjoy whiter teeth for six months. Because you receive two full treatments (a year's worth of supplies), you won't have to restock when you repeat the whitening process in 6 months.
