Pearly Whites

I am a tea drinker, so I always feel like my teeth aren't always as white as I would like them to be. My dentist begs to differ and always compliments me on how beautiful my teeth are, but I just can't help but see them as not-so-white. I brush at least twice a day, carry mini brushes in my purse, and I can not stand fuzzy teeth! That being said, I also can't handle teeth whitening procedures. Whether it be the do-it-yourself strips or trays, to the fancy machines, my teeth are way too sensitive. The pain is too unbearable and my whole head just throbs. Not fun.
So, browsing the toothbrush aisle at Target, I came across a cute purple (of course) brush that was calling out to me from the shelf. The Crest Pro Whitening SpinBrush was shining brilliantly with a halo of sparkles. Well, not really. That's what I told my hubby who wanted to know why I spent $6.99 on a toothbrush. Anyways, the selling point that caught my eye was that it would whiten teeth in about 2 weeks. Huh. No special toothpastes, no chemicals, no trays or ultra-violet rays of light. Just brush with this battery operated brush for 14 days and see whiter teeth. Call me a sucka' crazy, but I think it is actually working. My teeth seem shinier, and a shade or so whiter. I didn't take any before/after pics (cuz now I am too self-conscious and don't want y'all staring at my teeth), but bottom line ... I like my new tooth brush, and there may just be one in my girly giveaway coming up!

I had no idea there were whitening toothbrushes! I guess it is kind of like having your teeth polished at the dentist, but it is every day? I HAVE to have one!! For $6.99 there is no reason NOT to try it!! Thanks for sharing!

I'll have to try that. My teeth aren't where I'd like them to be either. Damn, Cokes!

I have highly sensative teeth too. Getting braces as an adult to correct my jaw didn't seem to help matters either. I ended up having to get 3 root canals because of it! They tell you that ahead of time though so it's not like I didn't know it was a possibility. Ugh!

Sometimes I think getting dentures might be a better option for me.
