TIPS for a Whiter Smile

If there is one thing I am obsessed with, it is having white teeth. I will do ANYTHING to keep my teeth white, and I think it is really important to have a nice looking smile. A smile is the first thing I notice on people when talking to them, and probably my favorite thing about a lot of people. I have a few tips on what I do to keep my teeth white, and I thought I would share them with you all.

The most important thing to having a white smile is just to brush your teeth – a lot. Try to brush your teeth after eating, and also brushing before bed is very important. The toothpaste I like to use is the Arm and Hammer Extreme Whitening and the Crest 3D White in Glamorous White. Both are good at keeping my teeth white.

Another tip I have for you is to drink dark liquids out of a straw. When you go to Starbucks, get a straw for that Skinny Vanilla Latte. I’ve gotten weird looks and questions on why I do that – but it’s common sense, drinking through a straw really does help. Iced tea, soda, coffee…all of those can stain your teeth.

Now, another thing I do about twice a year is Whitestrips. I buy the Crest kind, and I like using them for about 7 days, three times a day, and they really will make your teeth blindingly white! Love. They make my teeth super sensitive…but hey, beauty is pain right?

The last tip I have is to wear lipstick shades that flatter you. Stay away from most warm toned lipsticks , and instead go for a cool toned pink or red with a blue undertone, or a nude lipstick. Both will help make teeth look whiter! The lipsticks pictured above are Em Cosmetics Cabana Beige and Lipstick Queen Jean Queen. I love that Jean Queen lipstick – it is this amazing sheer pink.

So, how do you keep your teeth white?
