Let’s face it: yellow teeth can look really gross. A couple of weeks ago, I was taking notice to my smile, and telling a friend that I was interested in getting my teeth whitened. Although I brush my teeth at least twice a day, go in for regular cleanings, and avoid beverages that stain my teeth (ahem, coffee)- I could be sporting a cleaner, whiter smile. After all, what was the point of all those painful adolescent years with braces if I can’t spend my adulthood being 100% proud of my pearly whites? Fortunately, it was Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips to the rescue, as I was invited to learn more about their product at an event before I decided to go ahead and spend a whopping $500 for an in-office professional treatment.
At the event, I learned that Crest 3D Professional Effects Whitestrips uses the highest concentration of whitening ingredient currently available at retail. It contains the same enamel-safe ingredient that dentists use to remove stains below the enamel surface. Although it’s a common understanding that certain beverages and activities yellow our teeth, the worst enemy appears to be time. Imagine your wedding dress. Most of us get them preserved, right? If we left it out, we know it would just eventually turn yellow. We wouldn’t want that, even for a garment we know we will never wear again. Now here we are, wearing our teeth everyday, and exposing it to all sorts of things. Teeth are no exception- they need a little preserving too- and this is where Crest 3D Whitestrips can help.
I decided to do a little at-home experiment. I’ve tried whitening strips before, many years ago, and I didn’t love it. It was my impression that they slip all over the place, making those 30 minutes of wearing them really uncomfortable. I was bracing myself for a similar experience. It was to my delight that there seems to have been some reform in this department. Crest has incorporated an Advanced Seal No-Slip technology that really stuck on my teeth. Not only were the strips not slipping around my mouth, but it prevented a bad taste all around, and made the daily 30 minutes of whitening time much more comfortable and productive. Within just a couple of days, I began to notice (and obsess a little) over the apparent whitening of my teeth. It’s amazing how just having a whiter smile gives you so much more confidence. I’m not even done with my 20 days of whitening yet, but I’m really excited about the results.
Betray your dentist and skip the $500 in-office treatment. Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips will work to remove over 10 years of set-in stains for $49.99. The kit is available at drugstores, mass and online retailers everywhere, and at www.3DWhite.com.
