Picture Perfection

I feel like as each year goes by, the holiday season hits me even harder - can you believe that Christmas is next week?! White Elephant parties are taking over this week and next, and you know that holiday photos with family, friends and co-workers are inevitable.

In perfect timing, Walmart has an exclusive, digital-only deal on the Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1-Hour Express Teeth Whitening Kit - you can purchase one kit, and get another for free! These are such a practical time-saver, as its Advanced Seal Technology no-slip grip allows me to whiten while I get ready for the day.

So far, I've only whitened once, and call me crazy, but I really can notice a difference in just one application. I'm a passionate coffee drinker, so it's easy for me to accumulate a less-than-stellar smile over the days. With the same enamel-safe whitening ingredients that dentists use, it's a great cost-effective alternative for professional whitening, which my dentist brother-in-law always nags me about. Because, let's get real, neither you nor I have the funds to pay for these expensive treatments!

And of course, as expected, these strips do cause teeth sensitivity after use, but I noticed that it doesn't last for any more than a day - in this one particular case, I whitened while getting ready at 10 a.m., and by the next morning, there was zero sensitivity lingering.  When I get the chance, I'll be sure to update this post and my social platforms with a better picture that represents a before-and-after.
