Hello beautiful muggies! I’ve had SO many of you asking how I get my teeth white (and no, I don’t get them professionally done- I spend all my money on makeup and clothes instead ;) ) Here’s the products I use at home to make my teeth just a lil’ brighter and whiter.
I have to say this is the best whitening system I have used IF you stay consistent with it. You won’t get neon bright teeth overnight, so be patient. I start off with using it almost every day for 2 weeks, then doing just 1-2 times a week for maintenance. It works really well and is pretty cheap! I found mine at Target but I think they stopped selling it, so I got my most recent one from Amazon.
To use: brush your teeth then rinse with the whitening rinse that comes in the kit. Dry off your teeth as much as possible, then apply a thick layer of the gel on your teeth (I just use my finger). Put the tray on and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Then brush your teeth (with no toothpaste this time), and voila! Beautiful teeth :)
Where to Buy: Amazon . Select Drugstores
Crest 3D White Strips
In between my whitening treatment, I’ll also use the Crest strips as they work really well in whitening without having to use a tray. These work a bit faster and better than the Plus White system, but you have to leave these on for 2 hours (I’m so impatient- haha), plus these cost a little more…
To use: Brush your teeth well, rinse, and pat dry. Peel off the crest strip and place on your teeth and press firmly. Leave on for 2 hours, then take off and brush your teeth with just water.

Another tip in making your teeth look white especially for pictures is to apply a cool toned lipstick. Cool lipsticks have a blue undertone to them such as true pinks and apple red. Avoid any lipsticks that are orange, brick red, or yellow tinted pinks- the yellow undertones will bring out the yellow in your teeth.
I have to say that I’m very impressed with the teeth whitening systems that are used at home- they are so much better than they used to be and are very affordable now!
I hope you muggies have a wonderful week and stay safe this holiday season!
