Whiter teeth for a brighter smile???


I was having dinner today with my sister and some friends and was complaining about how I have been hating my teeth lately… I have this small gap “a la Vanessa Paradis” (Famous french singer/model for CHANEL and Johny Depp’wife) between my teeth that has been bothering me lately. I also feel like my teeth are not white enough and have been trying to get them whiter by trying all types of products…



So I first tried GO SMILE ampoules for couple of days and eventhough I could see a slight improvement after a week, it didn’t really work for me because I was scratching too hard and my gums started bleeding…I then decided to try CREST White Strips and it did wonders!!! I was not really expecting my teeth to turn that white but guess what? I could not drink my morning cappuccino or bite on my Dulce di Leche ice cream anymore because my teeth were too sensitive…I then went to see my dentist and he basically told me that I was lacking calcium (wasn’t really surprised since I don’t eat fruits, don’t drink milk and hate veggies…) and I should not even consider getting my teeth whitened…sad right? But hey, I have decided to get a second opinion and to go see another dentist…I will try to get that gap between my teeth closed at the same time…I think it can be cute on some people but not on me…

If any of you divas have another solution for me, please let me know!!!

    Hello Eva,
    I have a gap too.HOLLA!!
    Don’t feel self-conscious about it. In the swahili culture, it is a sign of beauty and also of luck. It means you will encounter much luck in your life. Rock your gap! 🙂

    I think that Vanessa Paradis’s gap is cute! if you want a whiter smile without too much damage on your teeth i will say sprinkle some baking soda on your toothbrush with your tooth paste. It has an after taste but it wont leave you with sensitive teeth.

    Oh baking soda? I will try that for sure! Thanks Patricia

    Ebene, I do have a gap!!! Do you want me to post a pic of it? lol…it’s not as big as Vanessa Paradis’ but it is still too big for me…

    Amina, if that gap is supposed to bring me luck…well…I guess I can keep it for a few more years and wait to see how lucky I can get…lol

    J’ai aussi une breche, une vraiment large…Je l’ ai meme refillee ‘a ma petite fille de 11 mois qui fait ses premieres dents. Pendant longtemps j’ ai pens’e ‘a la refermer mais j’ hesite encore…j’ ai peur que des dents plus serrees me changent completement. Pour des dents plus blanches, regarde cette marque BRITESMILE, ‘ca ‘a l’ air d’ etre bien!

    I agree, the crest white strips did wonders for my teeth. the only thing is they became sensitive afterwards.

    If you have a small gap try Teeth Effect bands, I had a tiny gap in my teeth and these things worked miracles in a week or so.
