Helen of Troy's face may have launched a thousand ships but you can also turn heads with a dazzling set of pearly whites. However, if your smile is less than picture-perfect, there are ways to remedy the situation. Here are some of our favorite products to help brighten your smile in no time.
1. Whitening Strips
Whitening strips, often available at drugstores, provide a great alternative to tray-based at-home teeth whitening systems for those looking for more convenience and application simplicity. Coated with a peroxide-based whitening gel, the strips are applied onto your teeth twice a day for optimal effect. The beauty in these products is that you can see noticeable results in a matter of days. We like the Crest Whitestrips Supreme, which comes highly recommended by dentists and is available exclusively through dental offices.
2. At Home Whitening Kit
Try trusted-brand Colgate's revolutionary whitening products. The Colgate Platinum Overnight Professional Whitening System is great for those too busy to whiten during the day. Apply before bedtime and your teeth can be shades whiter in a few days. Another great item is Colgate's Visible White, a complete whitening kit you can use daily for 30 minutes for fast results.
Now that you know what to use, give whitening a try and let your smile make someone's day. Pair one of these products with normal trips to the dentist and regular at-home oral hygiene to create an unforgettable smile.
3. Whitening Pen
One of the easiest products to use is the BriteSmile To Go Whitening Pen. Its attractive packaging makes it less conspicuous and it can produce results similar to professional bleaching trays without the mess.
