In brief: Bleaching

Professional in office teeth bleaching done by a dentist (takes about 90 minutes) or take home bleaching using custom fitted trays (usually 2weeks).
Over the counter bleaching agents may work but, only if your teeth are on the lighter side to begin with.

There are several ways to whiten your teeth, but i would not consider the toothpastes that claim "whitening" or the otc methods.
The best way to get a predictable tooth whitening is by a dentist. There are several sophisticated procedures with special lights and special lightening solutions (that are a lot stronger than can be bought otc.) bleaching trays are often made for home bleaching.
