You got the shoes, the bag, the dress — all ready for your holiday parties, but don’t forget your teeth! If your teeth could use a little de-yellowing before the photo-taking happens, check out Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste. With 2 times the usual amount of hydrogen peroxide, the main whitening agent, it claims to give you whiter teeth in 3 days.
As a person that has tried the strips and never been able to wait the required weeks to see them work, this seemed too good to be true, but when I ran out of toothpaste I just gave it a try. Not bad. Pleasant tingling and freshness but without the discomfort and the weird taste. (If you have ever tried swabbing your teeth with 3% hydrogen peroxide, you will know what I mean.) And your teeth does get whiter – not drastically white, but the improvement is still noticeable. Pretty good considering you are just brushing your teeth as you normally do.
