Who didn’t see all of those celebrity white smile at the Golden Globe Awards in January or the VMA’s just recently? They were definitely ready for the limelight twinkling from head to toe, but what many don’t know is that these smiles are not reserved for the red carpet!
Let’s look at one product today that not only has been around since before toothpaste was toothpaste, but fathered both the fluoride and the whitening movement as well as became the first to gain the ADA (American Dental Association’s) seal of approval. That is Crest, and they have quite the line of products.
Make sure that your oral hygiene is impeccable. You hear that you should brush three times a day, well make that two! Use a soft bristled, long handled toothbrush. Keep it clean, and replace it as directed or if it is showing signs of wear and tear. The Oral B 3D White Advanced Vivid is a spectacular toothbrush.
The best toothpaste for a celebrity white smile I would have to say is Crest 3D White (Artic Fresh). It has a foaming action, it is ADA approved and that means it is safe when used as directed. So drink up Starbucks fans, and bring on Crest’s 3D White micro cleansing technology to clean it all up.
A good alternative to crest is Rembrandt whitening toothpaste and whitening strips. They also have a great line of whitening products if you have a reason that crest is not acceptable. I merely like Crest because the ADA likes them, they have a long and respectful reputation and everything else seems to ne simply trying to follow in their footsteps (seeing as they laid the groundwork for it all and set the standards in the first place).
You want to floss when you brush. Crest 3D white has a pre rinse and a mouth wash that you can add to the toothpaste for maximum whitening too. Still, don’t underestimate the power and affectivity of flossing your teeth at least twice a day. You can use a water pick if you prefer, but get those teeth clean in between.
As for mouthwash, it is vital to killing germs and freshening breath. It is also great for oral health as whole. Again, Crest 3D White Artic Fresh Rinse is the best choice, and it is super affordable too.
Whitening can be done from time to time with strips, a kit or professionally. Opalescence is a great product as is Zoom for 12 hour whitening. Still, Crest beats them all hands down with their Crest 3D White Intensive Professional Effects Whitestrips. It only takes one week to get to a professional white smile with these. However, you will see results with every use. Not to mention, they are safe when used as directed.
Now you know how to get, keep and maintain that A-List smile without spending big bucks to do it. It is much easier than you would have ever imagined. So, share the news and keep those smiles bright.
