Beauty Tip Tuesday: Bright Whites!

Have you ever wondered if the at-home teeth whitening systems really work?  

Here's the scoop:  The at-home treatments that are made with peroxide work just as effectively as the ones at the dentist office, they just take a little longer.  Crest White Strips work great--Spend the extra $10 and get the Advanced Seal.  They are so much better)  

For best results, do the treatments immediately after your visit to the dentist so the peroxide is in contact with your teeth and not all of the built up plaque.

Then, use whiting toothpastes in between your visits.

And, don't forget to eat right!  Rinse your mouth with water after drinking red wine.  Eat foods high in cellulose, like carrots, celery and kale.  If you can't cut back on the coffee, try sipping it through a straw, you won't get as much stain on your teeth.
