what is one major turn-off that EVERYONE can agree on!? bad breath & yellow teeth.. DUH! So i've come up with some tips (that have been working for ME) to keep your pearly whites lookin' supadupafly ;)
1. always make sure you FLOSS at least once a day...
These are the disposable floss picks that i use.. you can get them at any drugstore for only a couple of dollars! Instead of waiting for your dentist to clean out all the plaque stuck between your teeth, do it everyday yourself! First, take the "pick" side and get all the plaque/food/junk that's stuck in between every tooth. Then, take the floss side and floss in between every tooth to get whatever junk you may have missed. They're also disposable so there's no hassle with these :)
2. brush your teeth DAILY (at least twice a day)
Here's the toothpaste that I use. I brush my teeth once in the morning, once during the day, and once at night. I love this toothpaste... it's very refreshing & whitening as well.
3. brush your TONGUE!
Get a toothbrush with a tongue scraper on the back of the brush. I believe this one is the one I use & it's by Colgate. It's important to brush your tongue because there's so much yuckiness left there & that's what creates the bad breath.. EW.
so there are the 3 easy steps... i'm sure many of you do this already but i'm also sure that alot of you get too tired or lazy to do it as often as you should... keeping your teeth clean is soo worth it in the long run :)
try out these tips & let me know what you think..
also try using the new Crest 3D line.. it's working pretty well for me & has made my teeth alot whiter..it seems to work better than the Crest Vivid White toothpaste line.
I did use the Advanced Crest Whitestrips before & they work wonders for only around $30! BUT my teeth are quite sensitive & couldn't really handle the product... =T
anywho.. please leave your opinions below.. i'd love to hear what works for you!
