How Do Celebrities Whiten Their Teeth ?

I bet many of you wonder how Hollywood stars have the brightest smile, even if they smoke too much...


Well, before you say that they spend a fortune and have the best dental surgeons one can possibly have ( Yes. They do have! ), there are some very simple tips one can follow & have a white & bright smile !








 Initial impressions are of great consequence, a pleasant grin and dazzling white teeth are a major step towards making a great impression. The way someone perceives you is vital as it might influence your social life or even your chances of getting a job.


Here are some easy steps and advice  EVERYONE can follow :

The first rule: Brush your teeth twice daily: This is basic teeth 101 stuff.  Use a good toothbrush like Sonic care or Oral B that is motorized, it does the job 100% better than a hand held.

Dental Floss: Flossing sticks can be kept everywhere, purse, car, backpack; you eat several times a day, no one wants to see what you had for lunch stuck up in your eyeteeth.

Scrape that tongue: Really, invest in one, makes your mouth all the cleaner and helps keep plaque at bay too.

Good Mouth Washes: Listerine is an effective antiseptic. There are excellent enamel restoring rinses like Act too. I use Rembrandt Whitening rinse daily.

Good diet. Eat good food and good things happen, eat crap and watch your mouth and your body go to hell. Calcium can come from vegetables like broccoli if you cannot drink milk.  Avoid corn nuts, sticky taffy (crowns lift up) eating unpopped popcorn kernels, and don't use your teeth to open bottles and rip open stubborn bags.  Don't chew ice, ever.

No sodas, energy drinks even diet stuff: Corrosive and fattening; it is rumored that coroner technicians have cleaned up fatality wrecks and murder scenes with Coke soda.  Allegedly its acid nature gets the blood right up and out of the tarmac. it does clean the corrosion off your battery cables efficiently.


These drinks cause mass scale decay and enamel erosion with phosphoric acid and citric acid. Energy drinks contain organic acids in addition to the above which directly damage the tooth calcium. Mass-produced lemonade (with corn syrup) is awful, don't drink it unless it was homemade with real sugar, water and lemon juice only (then rinse your mouth afterwards). Diet sodas are destructive to teeth too.

Still Smoking? Smoking wrecks your mouth, along with the cancer thing. Bad breath, stinky clothes, home, car and hair are just a bonus.

Gum: Unless it is sugar-free gum - don't do it.


Dentist twice a year: Spend the money; find a dentist you love, go.

Piercings around the mouth:  Oral Piercings such as tongue or lip are so 90's. Get them out of your mouth and get over the trend; you look ridiculous, in case no one has told you. Tongue-pierced people have the funkiest nasty breath too, many makeup artists have noticed !


The Products, tried and true:

Whitening treatments

The strips, trays and brush-on gels are something many actors do two to four times yearly to keep up their smile's brightness.

Depending on the whitening method used, you may need a touch-up every six months or after a year or two. If you smoke or drink lots of stain-causing beverages, you may need a touch up more often.

You may be able to get rid of many superficial teeth stains by yourself. A number of at-home teeth whitening products  kits, strips, and toothpastes  will lighten stains.

A home tooth whitening kit contains peroxides, a bleach that can remove both deep and surface stains -- and actually changes your natural tooth color. If you have coffee-stained teeth, a tooth-bleaching kit can help. With some kits, you apply a peroxide-based gel to the surface of your teeth. In other kits, the gel is in a tray that molds to the teeth. The tray must be worn daily (for 30 to 45 minutes) for a week or more.
 
Over the years the Rembrandt system has performed well . Their Plus Peroxide Whitening Mouthwash does work, as it whitens and restores and strengthen tooth enamel.

Another excellent rinse is by Listerine, their Whitening rinse !

Over-the-counter toothpastes work with peroxide and baking soda -- whitening teeth through mild bleaching.  Rembrandt's Plus Peroxide Toothpaste works nicely with the rinse.

Another great product that is used without water is Dr. Smigel's Supersmile dual polish and gel system.  This dual system will polish and whiten your teeth dramatically.

The Advanced Professional Whitening Toothpaste and Professional Whitening Accelerator Component that works on a dry tooth brush so you can whiten your smile without wasting water.  The toothpaste dissolves the stained layer of the teeth and also restores the color of artificial tooth surfaces like bonding, veneers and crowns  all while conserving water.


The popular Crest Whitening Strips are coated with a gel that contains hydrogen peroxide, the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use for teeth whitening.

The new strips really adhere to the teeth nicely, they don't slip around like the old ones.The most important thing is that they are convenient and less saliva inducing as the trays that some of the manufacturers offer in kits, such as Rembrandt's 2 Hour whitening kit.

Dr. Connelly put together quick fixes that you can do at different times of the day without taking time out of your busy schedule:

In the shower:  Stop stains and tartar buildup when you wake up and decide to jump into the shower. Use over the counter whitening strips and whiten while you get wake up in the shower.

At snack time:  Snack on apples, pears, strawberries, celery, carrots, and any raw veggie which happens to produce saliva that will help remove bacteria and whiten your teeth. These healthy foods will help clean your teeth says Dr. Thomas Connelly.

After lunch: Chewing sugar free whitening gum that contains calprox, which will remove stains but even any gum will work. Since gum stimulates saliva flow, and will act as a natural detergent, and remove some of the stains. Rinse with water if nothing else is available, which will remove some of the stains.

Night out: When choosing a lipstick for a night out choose lipsticks with blue undertones, which will make teeth appear whiter. Rose, reds, burgundy, and plum shades works well. Be careful when choosing a shade because a color with an orange undertone can make your teeth appear dull and yellow.


After dinner: Swish water in your mouth for 30 seconds right after eating to help prevent stains from the food that you ate, says Dr. Thomas Connelly.

TRUTHS & MYTHS : What to avoid when you brush your teeth and what you should keep in mind when you choose one of the following ways of whitening your teeth !

There are numerous ways that you can get whiter teeth. There are many distinct toothpastes or chewing gums which claim they can improve the whiteness of yellow teeth. These statements have a few truths however they won’t ever be able return your teeth to their previous white color.

These tooth pastes have extra abrasive material than the ordinary tooth pastes and when you brush your teeth with it your teeth will only be whitened due to abrasion.

You must not brush your teeth to much with these strong toothpastes, if you do it might remove enamel from your teeth. Not all of the stain is on the front of the teeth, there are stains that brushing by itself cannot remove.

This is a safe method of whitening your teeth, even though it is quite expensive when compared to at home teeth whitening methods.

Laser Teeth Whitening

An additional widely utilised process which was developed lately is making use of laser rays to whiten your teeth. This is a suggested method but it really is quite costly. This would additionally require you to see a dental surgeon and again it would take greater than one treatment.

Teeth Bleaching Kits

One suggested way of whitening your teeth is through the application of bleaches, these can be just as strong as professional teeth whitening procedures and are the fraction of the cost.

Dr. George’s Dental White is a home teeth whitener that is proven to help you whiten you teeth in as little as 30 minutes, with it you’ll whiten your teeth by approximately 7 shades.

Lots of Hollywood stars at several point will get a tooth whitening treatment, after all possessing white teeth can affect how successful they are. Numerous people also want to be able to achieve a Hollywood smile, and thankfully there is a way to get the smile you have always wanted.

 In a nutshell, you no longer have to worry about the high cost of going to the dental surgeon, because you can have a much brighter smile from the comfort of your own home.
