A bright and white smile can take off 10 years from your appearance! So why is it that some of us are still walking around with coffee stains? Thousands of teeth whitening toothpastes promise results that just don’t come true. Making an appointment for a tooth whitening service is the most effective and fast way to whiten teeth, but for some it can be expensive and the thought of needles, drills, and unnecessary pain deters them from going through with it. If you are included in one of those few, and are looking for a way to whiten teeth at home follow our 5 tips to whiten teeth fast!
Tip 1: After eating or drinking, rinse or brush teeth. If brushing is not an option, rinse mouth with water so that whatever it is you ate or drank is not soaking teeth and staining them.
Tip 2: Did you know certain shades of lipstick can make your teeth look whiter? We found an article by SELF magazine and they listed the best lipstick shades that make teeth appear whiter and brighter! Our favorite? A creamy berry with blue undertones called Passion by TIGI Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick. Here is the list of shades!
Pale Pink – bright, shimmery pale pinks. These can bring out the whiteness that is naturally in your smile.
Sheer Pink – glossy, pinks with a berry tint can lift and enhance the brightness of your teeth.
Light Pink – matte rose shades with blue undertones will really make your smile pop out.
Bright Pink – bubble gum or fuchsia color with an electric blue base will make your smile look dramatically whiter.
Bright Red – bold, opaque reds can make your teeth look up to 2 shades whiter.
Tip 3: Start using an effective tooth whitening toothpaste. A system designed by dentist is a smart choice. We consider Supersmile Pro Whitening System – Small an effective and budget-friendly choice for teeth whitening at home! It combines a teeth whitening agent called Calprox and a Whitening Accelerator. These ingredients work together to whiten teeth internally and externally. The professional at-home teeth whitening system will remove coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, and other stains! The best part is that it is gentle on sensitive teeth, and safe for whitening veneers, caps, dentures and bonds. At less than $25, we bought one for each of our friends and family.
Tip 4: Eat crunchy fruits and veggies! They are considered nature’s toothbrush because they help to lift stains from teeth because they have enough abrasiveness to clean tooth surfaces. The old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” rings true here!
Tip 5: Brush in circular strokes for at least 3 minutes. This may be elementary, but it is unbelievable how many of us still have not caught on to the benefits of doing this!
These tips will get you whiter, brighter teeth in less than 30 days!
