Welcome to Day 11 of your SEXIEST year ever! Click here to catch up on Day 10: 7 Tips for Keeping It HOT!
If “You have beautiful lips” is the top pickup line on online dating sites, you better believe guys are noticing what’s behind those lips as well: your teeth. Nothing is sexier than a smile, but if your teeth are less than dazzling white, you may not feel like grinning. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to whiten your teeth.
Here are our favorite teeth-whitening options:
1. Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme 15% teeth-whitener
Stars like Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba, and Taylor Lautner have been using the new Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme 15% teeth-whitener to get their pearly whites (Taylor said he used them before shooting the first Twilight flick – and we all know just how powerful that hottie’s smile is). It’s an inexpensive, at-home teeth-whitening option that can be purchased through your dentist for as low as $75, and is just as effective as an in-office treatment. The kit contains 10 pre-filled, disposable trays with whitening gel, a formula that contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to combat the common problems associated with teeth whitening, such as sensitivity and damage to enamel. To find a dentist near you who offers Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme 15% teeth-whitener, check out Opalescence.com.
2. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects
With a price tag of about $55, this convenience store product may seem a little expensive, but the results are well worth the cost. Crest has really perfected the art of teeth whitening with their latest product, making their whitening strips less messy with “Advanced Seal No Slip Technology.” With one application of 30 minutes a day, most users see a noticeable difference in the shade of their teeth in just three days. Just imagine what your teeth will look like after using them for the full 20 days. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects are available at most major convenience stores and online as well.
3. Pro White Teeth Whitening System
This system gives you the opportunity to make impressions of your own mouth so bleaching trays can be custom-designed to fit perfectly to your teeth. Once you have your trays, all you have to do is dispense the teeth whitening solution (supplied in syringes) into them and wear for 20 minutes to an hour, once per day. Pro White Whitening Systems start as low as $79.95, and refill teeth bleaching gel syringes can be purchased for as low as $37. If you don’t see results within 30 days, you can return the system for a full refund – a sure sign it works! Purchase a kit online at prowhiteteeth.com.
After trying one of these teeth whitening methods, you better get that Chapstick ready – you’ll be smiling a lot this year!
