Having white shiny teeth on prom night is something every girl wants. It doesn’t matter how much makeup you have, if you are embarrassed to show your teeth when you smile then prom photos will not look that good.
Prom is a once in a lifetime opportunity and you will be keeping those memories for years to come.
Teeth can become stained for many reasons. Smoking, coffee, and poor food choices can make your teeth a yellowy color.
Even some fruits can cause your teeth to become discolored.
How to make your teeth white
Going to the dentist
Most dentists offer tooth whitening services. If you are going to use a dentist make sure you book in early to avoid disappointment.
The reason for booking early is because you will need to return back for a number of treatments.
There are a number of methods you can use yourself.
We have had some good feedback on Crest 3D whitening strips but you need to start out a few weeks before the big day. You can’t leave it to the last minute.
Another method you can use from home is Auraglow. You might have seen the ads around with the teeth whiteners that have flashing lights and Auraglow is one of these.
The light is more than a gimmick than anything, but it does help you know when you have had the mouthpiece in for the 30 minute treatment time.
Lots of people report a noticeable difference after just one treatment of the Auraglow.
Other techniques to make your teeth look better
One method you may have seen circulating on Social Media is to use activated charcoal to whiten your teeth.
We advise against this as it can damage the enamel on your teeth.
Whatever you decide to use do your research first and check that it is safe. If in doubt check with a dental professional.
