4 ways to make your teeth whiter and brighter
Having brighter, whiter teeth can do wonders for your confidence, but not everybody has the time or money to get their teeth professionally whitened. In the video above, we show you four easy ways to achieve a more dazzling smile - and all of them are tricks you can easily slip into your daily routine. Or if you’d prefer, you can check out the advice below.
#1 Use a blue-based red lipstick
Wearing a red lipstick with blue undertones will help to counteract any hints of yellow in your teeth so they appear whiter. Just be sure to use the ‘finger trick’ (placing your finger inside your mouth and pursing your lips as you slowly drag it out) to make sure you don’t end up with any lipstick on your teeth!
#2 Use Colgate Optic White Express White toothpaste
Colgate Optic White Express White Toothpaste can whiten teeth in just three days, so it’s worth swapping your regular toothpaste for this whitening wonder. It contains double the hydrogen peroxide than the regular Optic White toothpaste, and that is the same whitening ingredient dentists use.
#3 Drink through a straw
We know you can’t avoid dark drinks like black coffee, tea or coloured soft drinks forever, so when you do indulge, try drinking through a straw to limit the contact they have with your teeth.
#4 Snack on crunchy foods
Snacking on fresh, crunchy foods like celery and apples is not only good for your health, but also for your teeth. All that chewing triggers saliva, which can help to wash away food remains, leaving you with less staining.
