Get Your Smile Camera-Ready with Crest Whitestrips!

We did it!
We now have become out in-laws!!
And I couldn't be happier!!
Seriously our son got married last week and it was wonderful.

But it took a lot of work to get there. 
Making brides maids skirts, creating lovely winter bouquets, tracking down grey suspenders, and mint bow ties, ordering food for the luncheon, decorating, and assembling 150 smore favors. 
It all took preparation over the last two and a half months.
As the mother of the groom I wanted to look my best, so I jumped at the chance to try Crest White strips.Weddings are one of the most photographed days in a person's life and smiles are center stage. Whether you're the bride, the groom, or just in the wedding party, having a bright smile is a must have.

In only 2 weeks, Crest 3D White Supreme Fexfit Whitestrips can whiten teeth as well as a $500 laser treatment.
 OK sign me up!!

The ideal time to whiten for a wedding is two weeks in advance of the big day. Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips whitens in just one hour a day for 2 weeks. So I started exactly two weeks before my sons big day. Each kit comes with 14 packets. Each packet comes with two strips, one for your upper teeth and one for the lower set. 
The kit comes with complete instructions and information, but I will give you my shortened version.
Open the individual packet and pull out the two strips. Peel off one strip and slowly stretch it by pulling. Stretching it until it will fit across all your teeth. Slow is the best way.

I found it works best to apply it to the bottom teeth first, mostly due to saliva building up during application. Press the strip in place by gently rubbing. It should stick pretty well. Then just wrap the strip over the top of your teeth. 

Repeat for the top set of teeth.
Then you just leave them on for one hour; I set a timer on my phone. Whitestrips use the same enamel-safe, teeth-whitening ingredients dentists use and provide a comfortable at home teeth whitening experience. I know an hour seems like a long time, but they are barely noticeable. I put them on and ran errands, worked on the computer and talked with friends. 

After an hour I just pulled off the whitestrips and threw them away.
I would suggest working it into your routine and putting them on the same time every day. That way you are less likely to forget.
OK now for the big question!

Did it make my teeth whiter?


 I noticed a difference after the first week. 
My kids and husband notice a difference too!
I could go on, but a picture is worth a thousand words.

You may notice in the before that the tip of my upper left canine is whiter. 
It has always been that way. Now it blends with my new white teeth.
 OK, I may be doing the happy dance about that!!

Armed with my new white smile and of coarse my new wedding outfit I was ready for all those photo's.
