When you meet someone for the first time, the first thing you tend to notice about them is their smile. Now think about the impressions you form based on what you’ve seen. A white, bright smile is more likely to leave you with a better impression than a smile that's dull or yellow, right? If you said yes, then you're right in line with recent research.
Research Shows Whiter Teeth Lead to Social Success
The appearance of your teeth has been shown to improve the opinion that others hold of you based on your first meeting. (1) That’s because when you're speaking with someone, their focus is primarily on your mouth and eyes. (2) Research shows that the attractiveness of your face, of which your smile is a major aspect, factors into the success of your social life—romantic and platonic—and even your career. (3) So getting a whiter smile with an at home teeth whitening system is a great investment, if you’re looking to improve your social or professional life.
How At Home Teeth Whitening Works
A great way to improve your smile and the way you feel about yourself is with at home teeth whitening. The whitening power of hydrogen peroxide oxidizes away stubborn stains from food, coffee, wine, cigarettes, and other causes of stained teeth.
At home teeth whitening can be accomplished in many ways. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Vivid whitens by deep cleaning and using the same effective whitening ingredient that dentists use.
More Dramatic Results with At Home Teeth Whitening
If you're looking to get a bit more out of an at home teeth whitening system, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Advanced Vivid provides a higher level of whitening. You'll start seeing visible results after only three days, with full results after just 14 days. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Advanced Vivid also feature Advanced Seal technology, which keeps the whitening power of the strip where it belongs, preventing slippage.
Professional Results with At Home Teeth Whitening
If going to the dentist for professional whitening isn't an option for you, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects provides the highest level of whitening from Crest at retail.
