Unlike those wimpy strips that stick on your teeth and never work, the Opalescence trèsWhite Teeth Whitening Kit is a superior teeth whitening system that produces results after the very first treatment. This kit is not available in retail stores; you can only order it from a dentist’s office, because it has a higher hydrogen peroxide concentration than your average over-the-counter whitening product. After about a week of treatment (30-60 minutes per day) your guy’s teeth will be noticeably whiter and will only require touch ups every 1-2 years, if at all.

The best part about this gift is that he won’t have to pretend he likes his gift because he gets to pick it out himself!
