I’m going to talk with you about a sensitive topic. Yellow Teeth. Ugh. I’ve never had super white teeth ever in my life, but they are improving.
Just like people have different hair and skin color, we don’t all naturally have super whit teeth either. I always thought my teeth would be dull and not white until I started using the Colgate line of whitening products a couple years ago.
Transform Your Smile with Colgate
I knew they were getting whiter but didn’t know just how much until my dentist told me they were 3-4 shades whiter than the last time I was there!
I received product to facilitate this post.
I don’t know if you can tell in the above photos that my teeth are whiter on the right or not – these pictures were taken 5 years apart but in different lighting. My teeth are whiter now and I feel so much more confident – but not much else has changed as you can see with my hair! ha!
Teeth can turn yellow and be affected by many things including:
- Using tobacco
- Drinking dark liquids like coffee, tea, cola, red wine
- Eating foods like cherries and blueberries
- Tartar and plaque build-up
- Use of too much fluoride
- Trauma to teeth
I do my best to keep my teeth stain free but definitely need help from Colgate because I do enjoy dark-colored drinks like coffee, cola, and tea! I didn’t use to know that drinks like these could discolor my teeth.
That is the bad news.
The good news is that there are easy ways to improve your smile – without costing a fortune. Let’s face it, a whiter smile builds self-esteem, makes you look healthier and younger, and makes a positive first impression.
Here is the good news.
Colgate has a whole line of products that can safely remove stains and whiten your teeth.
As a Colgate Healthy Living Ambassador, I have the chance to review the newest Colgate products right away. I’ve used Colgate Total mouthwash for years, but I’m really excited about the new Colgate Total® Lasting White™ Mouthwash. It freshens bad breath without the burn of alcohol while working on your whiter smile. This mouthwash strengthens your teeth and actually remineralizes enamel. Plus, it helps prevent new stains from forming with dual-silica technology.
My husband and I have been using Colgate Total® Lasting White™ Mouthwash for the past month. We like the Polar Freshmint flavor and the feeling it leaves our mouths after use. So fresh. So clean!
I even use the Colgate Total Lasting White Mouthwash in my Sonicare Airfloss. With the Airfloss, I’m shooting the mouthwash in between my teeth to whiten even the spaces between my teeth. Using this mouthwash alone or with something like the Airfloss will give your entire mouth the opportunity to remove stains.
If you have stains on your teeth too or just want a healthier, brighter smile, I encourage you to try out Colgate Total® Lasting White™ Mouthwash. You can buy it nationwide.
