4 Ways to Get White Teeth At Home
Take a look at your teeth. Have they lost their pearly white shine? Today, our teeth are put through the ringer. They take baths in coffee, soda, red wine, and so much more. Here are 4 effective ways to kick the stains on your teeth and get a beautiful white smile while hanging out at home.
Whitening mouthwash alone will not whiten your teeth, but it will however give you a jumpstart and protect you against bacteria buildup. It is important to pick one that is free of alcohol and color. Ones with these in them can eventually discolor your teeth and dry out your mouth, leading to more stain build up in the future.
Whitening toothpaste is more effective than whitening mouthwash, but it is not long lasting. Try using Dentisse Pro Natural Reflection Toothpaste ($16,dentisse.com), which contains kaolin clay. Dentisse is abrasive enough to remove the stain molecules on your teeth without over exfoliating them. For those battling with stains from smoking try Supersmile Toothpaste and Accelerator ($36, supersmile.com). The accelerator contains Caplorx, which is excellent for reversing stains from years of smoking.
Whitening strips are another great way at achieving a brighter smile. Crest 3D Whitestrips ($41, drugstore.com) can help lift years of stains from your teeth and they are extremely easy to use. All you have to do is wear the strips for 30 minutes a day. The drawbacks, they only reach the front 6-8 teeth and they can cause some tooth sensitivity.
Thanks to Glo Brilliant Teeth Whitening, you can now get a professional whitening treatment in your own home. The Glo Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device is pricey ($220, sephora.com), but it beats spending $600-$800 at a dentist office. The device uses light technology with whitening gel to lighten teeth up to five shades in five days.
