Yellow Teeth Emergency! Whiter, brighter teeth in less than ten minutes!
If you’ve been reading my blog a while you’ve probably heard me mention a time or two how strange I find it that sometimes I forget to take my own beauty advice. Well it happened again yesterday when I was getting ready for a really nice night out on the town. I was giving myself the Philosophy Oxygen Peel so that my skin would look radiant, because I can always count on that treatment for a nicer, firmer skin with closed pores and a beautiful glow. It never lets me down! Problem was when I got out of the shower and looked in the mirror I loved my skin but when I opened my mouth I got a gander at my teeth. They were yellow! I’ve whitened them in the past with great results but just haven’t kept up with it like I should have in terms of maintenance and am actually due for a whole new whitening all together. When I do, I’ll probably go with Dr. Michelle Copeland’s Dental Whitener. It works great and has easy to use pre-filled soft foam trays.
But in the meantime I needed to do something stat! That’s when it hit me that one of my favorite all time beauty tips is the strawberry trick. Here’s the scoop. You simply take a ripe strawberry (a great thing to remember when you’re about to throw out strawberries that you feel are a day or two old) and mash it. Then add ½ tsp. baking soda to the crushed strawberry. Brush your teeth with the mixture and leave the “strawberry tooth mask spread” on your teeth for five minutes. Next brush your teeth as usual to remove any residue and then floss. The malic acid in the strawberries combined with baking soda removes the discoloration from staining culprits such as red wine and coffee.
This treatment works wonders by itself, but to amp up the results I used my SuperSmile Whitening Toothpaste and SuperSmile Accelerator to remove the strawberry spread. What an incredible result I had. I felt like that person in the commercial where they’re looking at their smile in the mirror and all of a sudden they see that gleam or sparkle reflect off their teeth!
I had to laugh at myself because once again I almost didn’t think of doing any of that; yet had someone else asked me for emergency yellowing teeth advice I would have told them about the strawberry trick as well as the SuperSmile System. It’s just nuts! But at least this time, I did step up to the (porcelain) plate!
