We’re all guilty of being a little too relaxed on our dental routine. I mean, do you really floss every day? Luckily, we’ve got some of the best brands that will keep your teeth sparkling and healthy as you head into 2014!
Best Teeth Whitening — Top Pastes, Strips & Rinses
Many brands offer an easy to use systems like the Colgate Optic White regimen, which includes Colgate Optic White Dual Action Toothpaste, Optic White Mouthwash and an Optic White Toothbrush.
REMBRANDT has two lines we love — deeply white and intense stain. Each has a toothpaste and whitening kit.
We especially love the REMBRANDT INTENSE STAIN Stain Dissolving Strips. Unlike traditional strips, they dissolve on your teeth. Just pop in your mouth and go — they dissolve in five to 10 minutes so you can whiten anywhere! It will provide you with a noticeably whiter smile in just two weeks.
If you’re short on time, pick up Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1 Hour Express, which removes years of stains in just one hour!

The key to a healthy, white smile is proper care and prevention.
Be sure to floss with these convenient DenTek picks. If you would rather have a professional cleaning and/or whitening service, check out Lavaan Dental Spa in NYC. They have an express cleaning that only takes 30 minutes for super busy New Yorkers.
Expert Tips For A White Smile
The expert dentists at Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor offer tips for keeping your smile white and healthy:
“Avoid dark beverages such as coffee, tea and red wine altogether. If caffeine or a glass of wine is a must-have, apply a thin layer of Vaseline to the teeth prior to drinking to create a protective barrier. You can also be discreet and chew on raw, crunchy vegetables such as celery and carrots to mechanically remove surface stains from the enamel.”
Makeup can even serve to help teeth appear whiter! “Choose a lip shade with blue undertones – it contrasts the whiteness of the tooth and makes your smile appear instantly brighter!”
