Teeth are capable of holding a unique power over us, especially if they are not in the best shape or if we think we could somehow be more satisfied with their appearance. This is especially true when someone who is self-conscious about their teeth for whatever reason finds themselves needing to attend an event, be around new people, or do pretty much anything social that will at some point involve big, teeth-showing smiles.
For most of my life, my teeth have been an almost constant source of aggravation, medical problems and at times, severely low self-esteem. My genes have not been very kind to me in the dental department and as a result I have always had crooked and crowded teeth and I was diagnosed with Periodontal Disease at a young age. This one ailment has since led to a whole host of medical problems. The point is that those feelings of insecurity is something I totally understand. One of the most common issues people have with their teeth is that they lose their sparkle over time and their smiles aren’t as white and radiant as they should be.
At-home teeth whitening is not a new, untapped market; there have been numerous specialty products as well as toothpastes and mouthwashes all advertising the message that they can make your smile whiter. Most of them do very little or nothing, making those who try these products turn their backs on at-home teeth whitening all together and if possible, they will opt to make an appointment with their dentist to achieve the white smile of their dreams.
Crest is looking to change those negative thoughts about at-home teeth whitening with new Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips ($54.99, 4 treatments). My partner was extremely interested in trying these new whitestrips out and because of my teeth-related issues, I let him. He is a musician and guitar instructor who often needs to be on-camera with students, teaching group lessons and he also goes out to the studio of the company he works for to record video lessons. Having a bright, white smile is important and the possibility to having a whiter smile in just two hours is extremely convenient for the kind of work he does.
Here is a picture of his big, teeth-showing not-smile before-whitestrips. Tomorrow I will be posting about our experience with using Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips (along with a special giveaway for you!) and of course, we’ll see how well they worked from the after picture evidence.
What life event would you whiten for in just two hours with Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips?
I received Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips for review as part of a blog campaign through One2One Network. Additional incentives were provided to me, and opinions are my own.
