Everybody wants white teeth, don’t they? Not everyone though has them, due to tea, coffee, red wine, smoking etc. There are some great products out there to try, I’ve never had any professional treatments done but I have tried a couple of cheaper alternatives that i think work great!
Crest White Strips are fantastic! They are massive in the US, as everybody wants that Hollywood smile!! You can’t get them in shops over here but you can get them online.
I went for the Classic ones to start with. It’s a 14 day kit, you get 28 pouches containing 2 strips, one for your top set and one for your bottom set of teeth, do this twice a day for 30 mins and after around 3 days you’ll notice a visible difference. The strip is about 2 inches long, clear, with a gel coating (the whitening agent), peel back the protective layer of packaging, smooth onto your teeth, avoiding your gums, and fold into place, repeat on the top set. Leave them on for 30 mins, then just remove. You’re teeth may feel a little sensitive a few days in, but this isn’t harmful!! They say your teeth stay white for 1 year. Also you should only do this twice a year and no more. Prices for these can vary between around £20-£30 depending on where you get them. Well worth the money!!
The other product is White Glo, whitening tooth paste which comes with a White Glo Anti-Stain toothbrush and dental flosser toothpicks. It has an extra strength formula which lightens discolouration and yellowing on tooth enamel. Apparently it was originally developed for people in the film industry. So I think if it’s good enough for A-listers, it’s good enough for me!! I got the ‘Professional Choice’ , but they have a large range of toothpastes, including tea & coffee drinkers, smokers and herbal. I got this in Boots for £4, at the moment they are doing a 3 for 2 offer on all their dental range so I got some flossing sticks and mouth wash!! I want a Hollywood/Essex(lol) smile!!
