Get Blinded By The White

White teeth feature

We all want perfectly white teeth, but sometimes obtaining those pearly whites can present a challenge. Not all products work as well as they say they do – so The Manual did some investigative reporting to figure out which products won’t burn a hole in your pocket (or your enamel). For those of you who need to seek a little extra help in the tooth department – no worries, we found the perfect spot for you too.

GO SMiLE TRULY Whitening Toothpaste System

Throw this baby into your daily routine and you’re friends will need sunglasses every time they talk to you. This system has been clinically proven to work just as well as a whitening strip. Add a drop to your toothbrush before applying toothpaste and you’re good to go. You’re not only scrubbing away superficial stains, you’re whitening at the same time. For the unorganized type – you don’t have to set any timers, just brush twice a day. And if you’re not brushing twice a day…well then there are bigger issues at hand.

PRIME TIME SMILE Active Blue Teeth Whitening Kit

You might not be a dentist, but you can whiten like one in the privacy of your own home. Prime Time Smile Active Blue Teeth Whitening Kit is an easy two-step process. Brush the whitening gel onto your teeth, turn on the LED light gadget, and apply for 10 minutes at a time. Repeat one more time.  The gel is conveniently located inside a handy pen-like device (how James Bond). No messy trays. And you can do this while watching TV. You’ll see a difference after one treatment.

Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Advanced Seal.

It’s not just a seal you guys – it’s an advanced seal. Crest Whitestrips have been on the market for sometime – and they just seem to get better. These won’t slip or slide. In about two weeks your teeth will be noticeably whiter. You can also drink water while wearing them. Sometimes even we here at The Manual can’t get over where technology has taken us.
