In Search of a Perfect Smile

perfect smile

Throughout my junior high and high school years, people would always comment on my smile.

After years of braces, I had pretty much perfect teeth, and people noticed.

Unfortunately, over the years my teeth and jaw have somewhat shifted back to their natural state, and I’m really disappointed to once again have an overbite and some crooked teeth. I’ve thought about getting braces again, but with four little girls, some of whom are already showing signs of needing braces themselves, it just doesn’t seem financially responsible to spend that money at this point in my life.

So if I can’t have perfectly straight teeth, I definitely want them to be white!

Unfortunately, I also love coffee, chocolate, tea, berries and tomato sauce, all of which can contribute to stains and yellowing, and I’m on the quest for the perfect whitening toothpaste!

This month, I’m going to be trying Arm & Hammer Advance White Toothpaste with Stain Defense to see how it holds up against my stain-causing habits!

With baking soda, peroxide and patented Stain Defense technology, it promises to go beyond whitening to actually prevent future stains from setting in.

We’ll see how it works!


The maker of Arm & Hammer products challenged me to switch to Arm & Hammer Advance White Toothpaste with Stain Defense and this summer, they are giving away $12,000 in the Arm & Hammer Switch & Save Challenge Sweepstakes.
