Have you ever heard of Barry Manilow's song "I Can not Smile Without You"? This is such a classic song that easily endeared itself to thousands if not millions of people who heard it. Listening and analyzing the lyrics will make one realize that it is just one of those mushy love songs. Letely I've been thinking and realized that the song can even refer to someone's pearly white teeth. We are used to seeing a smile matched with shiny teeth. If these teeth are missing, how can you even smile?
We live in a generation that highly values the obvious and only the beautiful things in life. It's an ephemeral world. We are bombarded with pictures of models, celebrities and other famous individuals who blatantly display their glistening white teeth. Let's admit it, there are times that we even question on how they have flawless shiny white teeth. This leads to satiating our curiosity in getting whiter teeth.
The easiest way to get whiter teeth is to use toothpastes with whitening agents. They are effective especially in the removal of the surface stains on teeth. But if you want major dramatic changes, then by now, you should accept that it can not change your teeth color.
You get whiter teeth by using dental whitening strips. These strips are thin, flexible bands of plastic that stick to the teeth. There are also whitening pens which have sponge-tips that's where the whitening agents are applied.
A number of people are not aware that there are some stuff that they put in their mouth that can stain their teeth. Smokers whether cigarette or tobacco can get nicotine stains on their teeth. Heavy drinkers of coffee and even iced tea tend to have discoloration on their teeth. If you want to get whiter teeth you may need to give up on some of these guilty pleasures.
To achieve whiter teeth, you may try on purchasing those do it yourself teeth whitening kits. These kits are usually available at over the counter drugstores or supermarkets. You can also order it online. Nowadays, dentists even have stocks of these kits that they can easily dispense to their clients who aspire to have whiter teeth.
