There is some commercial on t.v. for some tooth whitener that has the line, “If you’re not whitening your teeth, you’re yellowing them.”
Dang it. Dang that super-effective commercial for whispering in my ear with every cup of coffee I pour. “Enjoy your caffeine jolt! Yellower teeth at no extra charge!” Dang it.
Sometime last week I came across the tip to use hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth, since the main ingredient in whitening strips is just stronger peroxide. (They also said to brush with baking soda, but a Google search said that doing that too much can wear away your enamel, and I’m on thin ice already with that.)
Hmmmmmm. I’m all for cheap fixes. I just so happen to have an 88-cent bottle of hydrogen peroxide in my possession. For the past week I’ve been swishing some for a minute each day, and I’d like to think that my teeth have since held steady at their yellow level, despite the 28 cups of coffee I’ve had since starting.
