Friends Don’t Let Friends Yellow, That’s Why I’m Looking Out For You With This Crest 3D Whitestrips Giveaway

Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or even tea? Smoke? Or maybe you just like to indulge in color rich foods such as Thai and Indian cuisines. Sound like you? Well what you may not know is that all of these things can cause your teeth to yellow. Yup, everyday activities can cause your smile to look more like sunshine than pearly whites and if you are not actively whitening your teeth, you are yellowing your smile.

So I know you are probably wondering what the heck is going on with my teeth in the above picture. I recently participated in the Crest 3D White Campaign in which I did a social experiment to see if my friends or family members would tell me if my teeth were in need of a little whitening- Friends don’t let friends yellow, will yours speak up or bite their tongue? In this experiment I used a temporary yellowing kit to color my teeth yellow and the goal was to capture a family member or friend’s reaction to my yellow teeth. I decided to use my son for the experiment as he is usually pretty outspoken and doesn’t know how to bite his tongue. I was excited to see his reaction.

I told my son to get his things together for his shower and that I had to use the restroom and would be out in a minute. I snuck my camera in the restroom and once in I proceeded to paint my teeth yellow with the yellowing kit which was Mehron Tooth FX in Gold. I called my son through the door and asked him to bring my phone as I had forgot it in another room, and when I opened the door I gave him a big smile. His reaction was hilarious! I could not stop laughing. He ran into the bathroom looking at me like I was crazy and moved in for a closer look. I could barely get a picture but I caught this…

That face was priceless and he hit me with the “Mommy, what in the world… OMG… What happened to your… I mean why is your teeth… Mommy what is that?” He kept moving inΒ  closer and asking what happened and when I finally stopped laughing I explained to him what was going on. So there you have it, my little blabber mouth did not bite his tongue.

All jokes aside, it is very important to take precautions to keep your teeth nice and bright because if you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing your smile. You can achieve a bright, white smile with Crest 3D White Strips.

    Aww man…I figured you would show a before/after since you went through the whole thing of whitening your teeth. Maybe not the whole 4 weeks of use but a least one use. I really wanna know if these strips work…

      The temporary yellowing kit washes off easily with regular toothpaste, so I didn’t need to use the strips. I will do a review of the product with before and after pics after I test it completely πŸ™‚
