1-Minute Smile Makeover Tricks

Schedule regular dentist appointmentsThe Orbit girl knows what's up -- that mouth of yours is filthy. While her cure is a stick of gum, doctors say it takes more to clean up your act. "Really, the most common mistake women make is not getting to the dentist frequently enough," says Toscano. "Patients come in two years apart and they expect to keep their teeth white and bright, and it just doesn't work that way."
