It’s that time of year where we’re taking tons of pictures–Homecoming dances, Halloween and of course, holiday cards and get-togethers. The last thing you want is to look at a photo and see dingy, yellow teeth! Here are a few suggestions for tooth whiteners to help get that gorgeous smile!  Read on…

New Colgate Total® Advanced Whitening toothpaste has a formula that actually helps improve the health of your mouth in addition to whitening and freshening your breath. Clinical studies show that within 12 hours of use, there is a reduction of up to 90% more germs  and within 24 hours Colgate Total® Advanced Whitening toothpaste helps fortify enamel. What’s important to me is that within 6 weeks, you get improvement in gum health. You can find Colgate Total® Advanced Whitening toothpaste in drug, discount and grocery stores.

GO SMiLE TRULY Whitening Toothpaste System is a new, twotube system packed with the most powerful form of whitening ingredients. Tested and proven to whiten better than leading toothpastes or whitening strips, you just add a droplet from each tube onto your toothbrush before brushing to penetrate teeth, to whiten inside and out, in just two steps. I’ve been using the GO SMiLE TRULY Whitening Toothpaste System and it couldn’t be easier. I’ve also not experienced sensitivity. Available at QVC and, $50.


If you’re really pressed for time, new Supersmile Quikee is the anytime, anywhere NO BRUSH/NO RINSE whitening tooth polish that conveniently and effectively removes stubborn stains, plus freshens breath. Icy Mint Quikee is formulated with CALPROX®, Supersmile’s proprietary form of calcium peroxide, which attacks plaque and stains without dehydrating teeth, causing sensitivity, or abrasion to tooth enamel.  Independent clinical studies showed that Quikee not only removed food-induced stains, it significantly whitened teeth beyond their baseline (pre-staining) color. $18 at


New LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN cleans virtually 100 percent of your mouth, giving you that long-lasting dentist clean feeling up to three times longer than brushing alone. This is also the only leading mouthwash that includes an anti-tartar ingredient proven to control tartar build-up. It’s also reassuring that LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN provides 24-hour protection against germs that cause plaque and gingivitis (when used twice daily for 30 seconds during morning and nighttime oral care routines). Available at WalMart, $3.89 for a 250 ml bottle.
