4 fast ways to whiten your teeth
What is the ultimate beauty must-have? Some say it’s amazing hair. Others would suggest it’s perfect make-up. Many would even propose it’s beautifully bronzed pins. But I disagree.
What makes for a picture-perfect beauty look is this: a mega-watt smile. Yes, a cheeky – but wonderfully pretty – grin. And considering white teeth play a large role in making us feel confident about our smirk, now is the time to start working on your pearly whites...
4 FAST WAYS TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH
#1. Start using at-home whitening strips now
Yes, now! These oh-so-simple to use strips require one to be diligent with application, so start your treatment now and you’ll see great results by the time you hit the track. Try using CleverWhite Dissolving Whitening Strips twice a day for the next four weeks for impressive whitening results. Just be sure to dab your teeth with a tissue before applying – illuminating any dampness will help the strips adhere better to your teeth.
#2. Buy a blue-red lipstick
Bright lipstick doesn’t just make you look sexy and glamorous in a fabulous frock – it has the ability to make your choppers look wonderfully white, too. Just make sure you steer clear of brown-reds, though. Only a red lipstick with blue undertones has the power to counteract the yellow in your teeth, making them appear whiter than they actually are. We love: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice and M.A.C Lipstick in Ruby Woo.
#3. Brush after every meal with a whitening toothpaste
If you’re like most people, you’ll brush your teeth in the morning and evening. But if you want to give your teeth whitening efforts a little push up the toosh, brush after each time you eat. Don’t give those nasty teeth-staining foods the chance to even think about discolouring your teeth, OK? We love Sensodyne Iso-active® Whitening for those with sensitive chompers, and Macleans Extreme Clean White Toothpaste for those whose teeth are a little less delicate.
#4. Think twice about what you put in your mouth
Yep, it’s time to lay off those known culprits such as coffee, tea, soft drink and red wine. But you’ll also be surprised to hear that berries, nuts, soy sauce, tomato sauce, liquorice and beetroots should also be avoided. They may taste delicious, but they’ll only do bad things for your dazzlingly white smile.
