One of the first things that I notice about someone when I meet them is their smile. I think that it is also one of the things that we all have been self-conscious about at one point or another. Everyone wants that quick fix to achieve the perfect smile and at a more affordable price. With the holidays coming up you want to make sure that your smile really sparkles. The reason why I decided to create this blog post was to share with you 5 steps that have personally worked for me when trying to achieve a whiter smile at home.
Step One: At-Home Whitening System
One of the fastest ways to achieve a bright smile is to use a whitening system at home. You have to be careful when selecting one because not all of them work as well as they say. The whitening system that I have found that works the best for me is by Pop Smile. I have multiple reasons for why this product is amazing, but the main reasons would be: it’s super fast (use daily for only 5 days), affordable price, and it is safer to use (peroxide free and 99% natural formula). You want to make sure that you are selecting a teeth whitening kit that includes a LED activator because this is what is really going to speed up the process to give you a whiter smile in a shorter amount of time. Another reason why I love the Pop Smile brand is that it allows you to improve the brightness of your teeth up to 8 shades in only 5 days without making your teeth sensitive. Sensitive teeth is an awful feeling that you definitely want to avoid, just take my word for it.
I provided below an image that is linked to the Pop Smile whitening kit that I use, “The Ultimate Teeth Whitening Kit” and it comes with 5 accelerator swabs, 2 mouth trays, whitening gel, LED activator, booster pen (to maintain your white smile), mouth tray case and a travel pouch. Seriously this is all you could ever need out of a whitening kit and more.
Step Two: Avoid Foods/Beverages That Can Stain Your Teeth During Your Whitening Routine
You have worked so hard to achieve a gorgeous smile, now why would you throw that all away for a quick fix of dark coffee? I definitely recommend avoiding things like dark colas, black coffee, red wine, black tea, hot chocolate, etc. You need to give your teeth a break during your whitening routine to have the best results. After you have completed the whitening kit, the Pop Smile one does come with a booster pen that you can use when you are out and about to maintain your pearly white smile. Also, you can always use a straw to avoid allowing these staining beverages to even touch your teeth.
Step Three: The Right Color Of Lipstick
During the holidays we immediately turn to red lipstick, but you want to actually avoid any lipsticks that might have orange-red tones. I have actually read that we are better off sticking to lipstick with a blue tone if we want our smile to look even whiter. This holiday season mix it up a little and play around with some different shades of lipstick to find the perfect color for you. I personally love a dark wine color for the holidays that really allows my smile to pop.
Step Four: Maintain Proper Oral Heath
You should always have regular dentist teeth cleanings and at least twice a day brush/floss your teeth to maintain proper oral health. Having a whiter smile is a bonus when it comes to maintaining clean teeth, but you also want to do this so that you are not having oral health issues in the future as you age. It is so important to take care of yourself by taking the right steps for a healthy smile.
Step Five: Use A Whitening Toothpaste And Mouth Wash
Using these two products will not provide you with quick results like the Pop Smile whitening kit that I use daily. They are great for maintaining the white smile post whitening treatment. I definitely suggest trying out whitening toothpaste and mouthwash that has fluoride in them to protect your teeth from eroding enamel due to normal wear and tear.
I promise that you will be happy with your appearance and have more confidence with a whiter smile. I provided an image that is linked to the direct spot to learn more about the Pop Smile whitening kit that I use daily. Just simply click on the image and it will take you where you need to be. You will be glad that you tried it out to achieve a whiter smile that sparkles just in time for the upcoming holidays.
