Here you’ll find some tips and advice for whiter teeth and a brighter smile.
As I say in my About Me page, I’m a part-time writer, actor, and musician currently living in Los Angeles. Working in the entertainment industry, I’ve come to appreciate just how important appearances and first impressions are.
People will sum you up and form a first opinion of you fairly quickly. It’s been said that it takes five seconds to form a first impression, and maybe five years to change it. That may be an overstatement, but I’m sure you get my drift. Clothes, hairstyle, accent, all these can and will affect the way others see you.
One super critical aspect for creating that necessary good impression is a white smile. Let’s face it, nothing is going to ruin your look quicker, or more completely, than a mouth full of yellow teeth! Coffee, Red Wine, (two of my most favorite things in the world) Smoking, and lots of other things will all conspire to dull your bright smile into a sad second rate version of what it should be.
So what can we do?
Well, I’ve spent quite a lot of time and money searching for the perfect smile to help me to further my career. No, I don’t want to look like Tom Cruise, with his dazzling bright choppers! I’m looking for a more natural look; a look that says “This guy takes care of himself and his appearance” not “This guy must think he’s God’s Gift – no-one’s teeth are that white!”
Believe me when I say I’ve met a lot of actors who easily fall into that category!
The best approach, in my humble opinion, is to aim for a natural-looking whiteness that doesn’t scream “bleached teeth” but doesn’t say “I chew tobacco for a living” either. We also need to watch out for harsh chemicals that will do more harm than good.
At the top of this page you’ll see links that will take you to where I’ve given reviews on various natural and not-so-natural methods for whitening teeth.
I hope you can get some good tips and advice from them, and please feel free to leave me a comment below. I’d especially like to hear if you’ve come across any other teeth whitening tips you’d like to share.
Cheers for now,
