Get More Bang For Your Teeth Whitening Buck

The time comes when every savvy girl needs to whiten her teeth.  It could be a reunion, date, job interview, wedding, or that guy you keep running into at the water cooler.  Before you shell out the $30-$40 for over-the-counter whitening strips (we like to splurge on the good kind, after all) these tips will ensure you make that money go as far as possible...

  • Start with clean teeth.  This may sound like a no-brainer, but to ensure the whitening gel targets your stains first, start with 'just-brushed' choppers.
  • Water rinse.  After downing stain-inducing food and beverages, such as coffee, wine or chicken vindaloo, rinse teeth discreetly with a swill of water to prevent stains from setting in.
  • Add natural teeth whitening foods to your diet such as crunchy fruits and veggies like apples, carrots, celery and cauliflower, which wipe away food particles and tooth staining bacteria.
  • Brush 1-2 times a week with baking soda.  It's an easy and inexpensive way to lengthen the life of your whitening regime.

**Hot tip: Cool-toned lipsticks and glosses make teeth look whiter than warm tones so cool off your lip color and give your teeth an instantly whiter boost with a quick swipe of cool blue gloss.
