Tips for Whiter Teeth with Colgate Optic White
Remember those beautiful white smiles from childhood? Well enter in work, stress and delicious coffee…and you have adult teeth. We all love a healthy white smile, but years of wear and tear can show through your confidence. Want to bring back your beautiful pearly whites? Check out my 7 tips for whiter teeth plus how Colgate Optic White can give you whiter teeth in as little as 1 day!
1. Decrease the Sugar Intake
Sugar molecules have a tendency of ruining teeth more than just cavities. Keep your enamel healthy and strong (and stain fighting) by avoiding sugary foods.
2. Avoid Teeth Staining Foods
Coffee, Soy sauce and soda and even healthier foods such as cherries and cranberries can stain your teeth. Eat sparingly and have a toothbrush on hand to lessen the staining effects.
3. Choose the Right Lip Shade
Lipstick can make all the difference when it comes to your smile. Choose the best lip shade for you to give your teeth a whiter appearance. Have grey teeth? Avoid deep reds with blue undertones. Have yellow teeth? Avoid yellow undertones, and go for more blues.
4. Eat More Fiber
Did you know that there are foods that can actually remove stains? Fibrous foods such as apples, celery, carrots, spinach, broccoli and lettuce actually remove stains as your chew. Pretty cool, huh? Those healthy foods are better for you than you thought!
5. Straws Are Your Friends
Got to have that morning coffee or afternoon cola? I hear you, mom! It’s tough to go through your busy day without a little mom “lift.” If you must enjoy that teeth staining beverage, sip through a straw.
6. Brush Your Teeth…Like an Adult
We know the drill, folks. Making sure to brush your teeth often (at least twice a day) and immediately after consuming any stain causing foods and liquids will help keep that smile white. Be sure to floss too!
7. Reach for Colgate Optic White
While all of the above tips are awesome for whiter teeth, sometimes we need results faster. For a whiter smile fast, I reach for Colgate Optic White. This award-winning collection is ready to tackle years worth of stains for a healthy, bright and beautiful smile…in DAYS!
Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen
Talk about a serious brush combo! The Colgate Optic White Toothbrush with built-in whitening pen helps to remove those surface stains for a brighter smile, every time you brush. Just brush with your usual toothpaste. The specially designed polishing bristles do their thing! Then apply the whitening gel from the pen (only takes seconds!). No waiting or rinsing required! Store the pen inside the brush and get on with your day. Simple!
Colgate Optic White Express White Toothpaste
Need a better whitening toothpaste? Then grab the Colgate Optic White Express White Toothpaste. Stronger than the Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, this paste has 2x the whitening ingredient, for a whiter smile in 3 days! This toothpaste is still safe for your tooth enamel and has a fresh mint flavor too.
Colgate Optic White WhiteSeal Mouthwash
Whiten and protect your teeth with this alcohol-free mouthwash. This powerful wash kills bad breath germs, whitens teeth and seals out new stains with every swish! Just rinse for 1 minute after brushing for a bang of a smile! I loved that this mouthwash didn’t sting my mouth with an alcohol overload.
As if the whitening power couldn’t get any better, when you use all 3 products correctly at the same time, you an see whiter teeth in just 24 hours! YES! Whitening power in just 1 day of use? That’s something to smile about! Can you see a different after my 1 week of use? I think I see at least 1 shade whiter! One word of caution, these products do tend to affect your tooth sensitivity (at least for me). I used every other day to decrease the sensitivity effects.
Nothing says a confident happy summer like a beautiful white smile! Enjoy these tips for a healthy white smile and grab your Colgate Optic White products at your favorite toiletries retailer. Be sure to follow Colgate Optic White via Twitter for the latest in obtaining your healthy white smile.
