“I know people do not like to floss,” laughs Austin. “So for my non-flossers, I do recommend this. It cleans the crevices between the teeth at 10,000 strokes per minute and even has special whitening crystals.”
“This is a really reasonable battery-powered toothbrush,” says Austin. "It’s great for removing stains and keeping the plaque level down, especially when combined with a toothpaste containing baking soda.”
“These are pre-filled disposable whitening trays with the gel already loaded in them. Wear once a day for up to 60 minutes. They are shaped just like custom trays made by your dentist, but are much cheaper, and cover both front and back teeth,” Austin says.
“You put the gel in the trays and wear them for only 30 to 45 minutes. What’s amazing is, in about three days you see results. And you can reuse the trays," says Austin who adds the system can cost around $200.
Price varies. Available for purchase from participating dentists.

Sensodyne Iso-Active Foaming Whitening Gel Toothpaste
“It’s a great, gentle whitening formula for anyone with sensitive teeth," says Austin. And ice cream lovers take heart: “It has potassium nitrate which gets into the core of the teeth and forms a protective layer over the nerve.”
