Who doesn’t want to have a beautiful smile with white, sparkling teeth?

Your smile is one of the first things people notice. When it comes to first impressions, bright, sparkling teeth give the impression of health and confidence – while dull, discoloured, yellowy-looking teeth can make people think that you don’t really care about yourself. This perception is not always accurate – as some people, no matter how many times they brush their teeth, have stains from habits like drinking coffee or red wine.

I’m definitely one of those people whose coffee-drinking habits has had a negative effect on my teeth. But, because coffee is life, I’d rather find ways to whiten my teeth then give up my daily caffeine fix (you can blame this on my depleted energy levels from running around after two littlies!).

The problem is that most whitening products on the market (and there are plenty to choose from) are expensive. And, a lot of them use chemicals to bleach your teeth (like you would bleach your hair) – which concerns many people and is an absolute big no-no for me.

If, like me, you want whiter teeth, but don’t want fork out tons of cash and want to avoid chemicals, then this video from WhatsUpMoms is a gem of a find!
