How I Whiten My Teeth

This is kind of a weird topic to blog on, am I right? But I’ve gotten a few questions lately about how I whiten my teeth. I’ll be totally upfront (and if you’ve been following her for any length of time you might know this), but I am neurotic about brushing my teeth and flossing. When I met Dane and he confessed on our first date that the first thing he notices about someone is their teeth, I knew it was a match made in dental heaven. Ha! But anyway, let’s talk about teeth whitening. Some of you might be shocked to know that I really don’t go out of my way or do anything too fancy!

When I was 17, I had my teeth professionally whitened by my dentist after I was done wearing retainers. They sparkled and I would recommend it over and over again to anyone who is embarrassed by their smile. It IS an investment and one I’m forever grateful to my parents for making in me. They, too, share my enthusiasm for white, sparkly teeth.

In any case, that was more than ten years ago…sigh. But I do my best to keep it up, because…I’m vain. There I said it. I care about my teeth and smile A LOT, probably more than I should, but for the sake of being honest…there you go.

So my secret is brushing my teeth three times a day at the normal times: in the morning, after lunch and at night before bed. I also floss after meals and always before bed. I brush with baking soda once per week (usually on Sundays since it’s an easy day to remember). Baking soda is a theme in my beauty regimen it seems, LOL! See this post for info on that πŸ˜‰ And then about once a month I use these. There are a ton of whitening strips on the market, but these are the only ones I’ve found to work and LAST.
