First things first

The key is to look natural, so whatever you do, don’t go overboard. Not only will excessive whitening harm your teeth, it will look unnatural. How white is white? Your teeth should not be whiter than the white in your eyes. 

Over-the-counter

There are tons of options when it comes to over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. How do you choose one? Overnight paint-on formulas are considered the best to use based on studies–strips can be hard to keep in place. 

Slowly but surely

Toothpastes that promise to whiten teeth are also good, inexpensive option. Although the process takes longer, teeth whitens while keeping your teeth clean and healthy is always in style.

Sweet Tooth

Even better (and healthier) than using a whitening formulas on your teeth is prevention–meaning, if you can prevent your teeth from turning dull, you’ll have nothing to worry about! Avoid caffeine based drinks like coffee and tea as they’re bound to stain your teeth. Crunchy foods like apples, celery, and carrots acts as toothbrushes when chewed. The insides of banana peels can also be rubbed on your teeth to make them whiter. 

Before you make any decision on how you’d like to whiten you teeth, be sure to talk it over with your dentists first. Some professionals suggests that teens should wait until they are at least the age of 18 to begin using teeth whitening formulas. So be careful about getting your gleaming grin! Good luck and show them your winning smile once you’ve achieved your desired white teeth.
