Ever wonder how some guys end up with those super-bright smiles? They may tell you they’ve been brushing twice a day and taking good care of their teeth all their lives. But don’t you believe for a minute that’s the whole story. Chances are, they’re using a teeth whitener to erase everyday stains and brighten their teeth.
There are a bevy of products on the market that promise results. From whitening toothpastes and strips to all-natural charcoal powders to full-blown peroxide/UV treatments, there are so many options out there you’ve really got no excuse not to be using one of them on the regular. Especially if you enjoy a nice Malbec now and then, puff the occasional smoke, or drink coffee every morning. There’s no reason to feel guilty about any of that; we all do it.
Over time, these indulgences will absolutely discolor your teeth. Illness and even some medications can yellow your teeth, too. And simply getting older causes worn-away enamel to appear dull over time.
Don’t stop enjoying your life. Instead, stop acting like there’s nothing you can do about your teeth. There is, you can, and you should try one of these modern teeth whiteners. It’s important to find a brightening system that doesn’t just bleach your teeth—which can actually harm your enamel, causing pain and more problems down the road.
If you want to see results fast, check out this list of fast-acting teeth whitening products. Which tooth whitener is the best for you? There’s only one way to find out.
