TEETH WHITENING 101: How teeth whitening works and what to expect

Trays TEETH WHITENING 101: How teeth whitening works and what to expect

Did you know that teeth whitening does NOT actually whiten your teeth? Its best described as tooth bleaching because it bleaches away the stains thus restoring the tooth to its natural color. Some people are fortunate to have naturally bright white teeth, while others have an off-white or in rare cases yellowish coloring to their teeth. Teeth whitening will only remove the stains and reveal the true color of the tooth. Any teeth whitening brand that guarantees bright white teeth is misleading those with naturally off white or yellow teeth.

In order for a bleaching agent to effectively remove all stains it must contain either hydrogen peroxide (hp) or carbamide peroxide (CP) which is hydrogen peroxide suspended in a gel formula. A hydrogen peroxide solution will remove both extrinsic (surface) stains as well as intrinsic (beneath the surface) stains as long as it maintains contact with the tooth for a specified duration and frequency. The duration and frequency of treatments varies based on the severity of the tooth stains and the strength of the hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. No matter the strength of the bleaching agent all stains will be removed over time.

Understanding the available teeth whitening options

Aside from requiring carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide as the bleaching agent it is equally important the delivery device adherers the hydrogen peroxide (bleaching agent) solution to the teeth for the entire duration of each whitening session. There is only one tooth whitening system that ensures this and it is the custom fitted teeth whitening trays which are available at the dentist for roughly $500 or you can purchase them directly from the dental lab at www.smilebrilliant.com

Custom fitted teeth whitening trays are designed to fit your teeth with precision using your upper and lower dental impressions which are then sent off to a dental lab.  A lab technician will use your impressions to create a molding of your teeth from which they fabricate custom fitted teeth whitening trays using a vacuum forming machine. Custom fitted teeth whitening trays can be purchased from your dentist for roughly $500 or directly from the lab at www.smilebrilliant.com for $109.95. It’s the same product, same process, same results; however you never need to go to the dentist and it’s a mere fraction of the price! Watch the video below for more information!

#Throwback, Happy Tax Day! Kate Walsh on @TheEllenShow: Billionaire Boyfriend, Get One!

Billionaire Boyfriend1 #Throwback, Happy Tax Day! Kate Walsh on @TheEllenShow: Billionaire Boyfriend, Get One!

The only cure for a closet recession is–tada, that billionaire you should be dating. The job boards are fully populated with people but if you are smart, I mean a quick wit, you already know where to find the money. This fragrance says it all: class, sass, sauce and boss–that’s right, if you are going to wrangle a billionaire this year, why not have the perfect fragrance to irresistibly woo him in. Though many can wrestle and others can win, if you get your hands on one, suggestion: nail him to the floor, cause SHAWTY, competition is FIERCE.

Start with this wonderful fragrance and you will be one of the apples of his eye in no time–if you’re good (at what you do), hopefully he’ll make you number one. If not, hey–he’s a billionaire, there’s plenty of his money to go around. The fragrance is described as “a lavish, decadent expression of seduction and opulence. Live the fantasy and let him spoil you.” Living the fantasy, i.e. the good life is fun, but embodying it is a different story.

The brilliant and seductive note of black jasmine amber is at the heart of this desirable fragrance, making it unforgettable and charmingly extravagant. Succulent fruits of bergamot and tangerine wrapped in lush green leaves intoxicate as the scent blooms into a provocative blend of black jasmine, velvet orchid, gardenia and a touch of patchouli flower. Vetiver, cistus, sandalwood, and golden amber notes finish the alluring experience as it exudes an addictive wealth of warm woods.

When you meet that uber rich prince charming with billions to blow…intoxicate him with your scent, and if you really want to rock his world get the roll on to keep in your purse at Sephora.com!

SheKnows.com Feature: 10 Signs You Are the Crazy-Ex

ex big bang SheKnows.com Feature: 10 Signs You Are the Crazy Ex

You might be justifying all of that Facebook stalking, the late-night texts, the lengthy emails and anonymous phone calls to his new girlfriend (who you’re pretty sure he met while you were still dating), but have you gone too far? Have your friends been subtly hinting that you might be heading into crazy territory?

We’re sharing 10 signs you might be “That Crazy Ex-Bitch” from SheKnows.com

1)  You think about him all the time

When you’re thinking about your ex to the extent that these thoughts are interfering with your day-to-day life, he’s become your focus, notes April Masini, author and relationship expert at AskApril.com. He shouldn’t be your focus — you should be your focus. “It’s understandable that breaking up requires a transition period, but after a few months, these thoughts should taper off, and you should focus more on what’s in front of you that’s possible, and not on what’s behind you,” she advises.

2) You still have him on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Following a breakup, it’s a good idea to cut social media ties with an ex. If you haven’t, you’re likely still too attached. “You’re going to be tortured by his presence on your social media, especially when he starts dating,” says Masini. “You won’t be able to enjoy your social media friends and contacts when you’re always clicking on his information.”

3) You stalk him regularly on social media

As Masini tells us, keeping your ex on Facebook or similar can easily lead to stalking. The information is readily available and oh-so-tempting to pore over again and again. But, she warns that you won’t get the whole story behind the photos or the tweets, just enough to lure you in and get you addicted: “Stalking means you’ve given up your power and you’re investing it in a failed relationship.”

True story: For about six months after my last breakup, the first thing I did every morning, even before coffee, was check my ex’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Finally my best friend came over and deleted him from all platforms to save my sanity. I love her for it. Rochelle, 28

4) You ask his friends about him

Continuously asking his friends or your mutual friends for information about your ex is a mistake and a big step into crazy ex territory. “Before you know it, you’re going to get a reputation, and you’ll start noticing your invitations are dissipating,” says Masini. “If you can’t stop asking or wondering, make new friends who don’t know him,” she advises.

True story: I convinced myself it was better to ask about my ex than not talk about him because I thought it made me seem like I was more over it. But really I just ended up sounding like a broken record and if I’m honest, a bit of a stalker. Anonymous

5) You frequent places you might see him

Do yourself (and your dignity) a favor and stay away from places you know he’ll be. “As soon as he realizes you’re following him, or worse, showing up at his haunts before he even gets there, he’s going to eventually find new places to hang out and you’ll be out of the loop,” warns Masini. She suggests using the breakup as an opportunity to find a better gym, a better coffee shop and a better dog park.

True story: I was so intent on seeing my ex I joined his gym. Big mistake. It was so awkward every time I saw him I could never concentrate on my workouts and I quit a month later.Deanna, 25

6) You still have all the things he gave you

Still have all his stuff? It’s time to purge. “Keeping a shrine to your ex by maintaining a box of his stuff long after you’ve broken up with him is going to be weird at best, and obsessive at worst,” Masini says. It also keeps you anchored in the past. She recommends getting his stuff together and mailing it back to him, his mom or donating it to Goodwill.

7) You text and email him

Women who chase men lose out, Masini says. And guess what? Texting, emailing and calling him count as chasing him — especially when you’re initiating the chase, she explains: “I’ve heard from loads of women who justify doing this, but in the end, it catches up to them. If he’s your ex, that means he’s going to sleep with you if you make it that easy, but he’s also going to be looking for relationships and sex elsewhere, too.”

8) You’re devising plans to get back together

People do reunite, but the circumstances need to be right and both people need to be ready. But, says Masini, if he’s changed the locks, is dating someone else, and you saw them perusing rings at the mall, chances are, no matter how elaborate a plan you’ve hatched, he’s moved on: “It takes two people to get together, and one to break up.”

9) You want to sabotage his new relationship

The problem with sabotage, as tempting as it is when you find out he’s dating someone else, is that you may end up driving him further away from you and more quickly into the arms of this new person. “You’ll get a short-term boost and a long-term let down. The best revenge is living well, and that’s a fact,” says Masini. “If you really want to make him second guess himself, go have a great life and be gracious and polite.”

True story: My friends and I spent so many hours and consumed many bottles of wine, hatching schemes of sabotage to scare off my ex’s new girlfriend. We never put any into action, but I’m still embarrassed I was so intent on breaking them up. Laurel, 32

10) Your friends are sick of hearing about him

You might be hung up on your ex, but eventually your friends aren’t going to want to hear about it. “You’ll know that your friends are sick of hearing about your ex because they’ll stop calling you, the calls they do make will be shorter, and you’ll be invited out less and less,” says Masini. “You’ll start hearing about fun times you weren’t included in because they didn’t want to hear tales of woe.”
