How I whitened my teeth at home with Arm & Hammer
Keeping my smile looking fresh is a super important component of my everyday beauty routine. As everyone knows, I love hair and makeup but not too many people know that I’m obsessed with cleaning my teeth! Like a lot of women, I’m always pursuing a whiter and brighter smile. I’m always on the go, always attending events, and running around the city, and I’ve learned that the first thing that people notice about you is your smile. Here’s the problem with that, many people are self conscious about smiling. There are things that you can do right now to improve your teeth and in turn, help elevate your confidence! A nice smile is a huge part of my appearance, and a lot of people ask me how I keep my teeth white and bright. Today I’m going to go through some easy and inexpensive steps to show you that with the right tools, you can achieve perfect pearly whites!
Let’s start with the basics, your toothbrush. Brushing your teeth daily is imperative for healthy gums and teeth but a lot of people fail to consider that it really should be a part of our daily beauty regimen. I love the Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Spinbrush because it polishes away dullness and leaves your teeth feeling just left the dentist clean. Because it only takes 24 hours for sugar to turn to plaque, it’s critical that we brush daily with a deep-cleaning toothbrush. I really believe that a battery-powered toothbrush like my Spinbrush makes a huge difference, and there’s evidence to prove that it removes 100% more plaque than a manual brush. A neat feature of this toothbrush is the performance cup, which helps keep the toothpaste on your brush so there’s more contact with the teeth and less waste (no more globs in the sink)!
Did you know that we’re supposed to floss every single day?! Flossing is super important because it removes plaque that gets trapped between the teeth. This can lead to bad breath and gum disease later on. With that said, I know all too well how easy it is to bypass flossing sometimes. Thankfully, I don’t have to feel quite as guilty about it because my Spinbrush has special floss tip bristles to clean deep between my teeth in those hard to reach places.
Gently removing surface stains from your teeth is all that it really takes to enhance your smile. I use the Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Clean & Fresh toothpaste for this. It combines four different cleaning agents clinically proven to whiten teeth in just five days. Believe me when I say, I’ve tried it all. Over the years I’ve brushed with baking soda, and used whitening strips, rinses, and trays. These methods all offered temporary results and a toxic taste, yuck. So when I finally found a product that left a long lasting, natural, and refreshing spearmint taste, I was very happy! One concern that I always had was related to tooth sensitivity. I’ve felt the pain of achy teeth after whitening using some of the harsher methods mentioned above. What amazes me the most about the toothpaste that I’m using now is that it strengthens your enamel and it whitens. It uses a special combination of gentle baking soda and silica to lift and remove surface stains, leaving you with A Fresh from the Dentist Feeling of Clean!
We often think of brushing as just a part of our everyday routine but it really is so much more than that. Teeth whitening is more popular than ever, it boosts confidence and truly impacts the people around you. Pearly whites are an attainable goal, and it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg! My whitening routine is so easy. It’s the basics combined with the right tools to create long-term results.
Seriously, I cant stop running my tongue along my teeth!
