Bright White

 With all the new fun lip color trends out there, you may find yourself focusing on how white, or not-so-white your teeth may look.  Lucky for you a whiter smile is much easier (and cheaper) to achieve than you think.  As much as I want a pearly-white grill, I am less than enthusiastic to spend money on strips, trays, markers, and whatever else the commercials tell me I need.

This is a little trick that I use for keeping my choppers dazzling for cheap!

After brushing, rinse with 1Tbsp Hydrogen Peroxide for approximately 60 seconds.  
*You can also do a 1:1 mixture of peroxide and water.
Repeat every morning for seven days.
After seven days rinse 1-2 times a week to maintain brightness.

To really boost up the brightening power, dip your wet toothbrush into baking soda before applying toothpaste.

You will begin to notice a difference after the first 2 or 3 days and real change by the end of the week!

*Always be careful not to swallow hydrogen peroxide although it is not harmful in small amounts
*Using Hydrogen Peroxide as a rinse should not be used for extended periods of time
