It's been a very good year for new advances in teeth whitening products. See the best (and brightest) in whitening pastes, gels, and gadgets
Still, it's hard to turn down that morning cup of coffee or evening glass of red wine in the name of whiter teeth. (I've considered the straw technique, but excessive straw use gives you lip wrinkles. It's a no-win situation.)
Instead of avoiding the vices we love, we turn to teeth whiteners. Good news for all the coffee and wine enthusiasts out there: it's been a very good year for new advances in teeth whitening products. So much so, in fact, even dentists say you can skip the pricey in-office whitening. "If the at home regimen is working, there is no need to do the in-office," says Dr. Michael Apa, DDS, Partner of The Rosenthal Apa Group in New York City. "The in-office is more used as a boost prior to over the counter at home whitening treatments." And that's not the only good news: Dr. Apa says that while these treatments may cause temporary sensitivity, they won't damage your teeth.
Check out six brand-new, seriously effective treatments for making your teeth look brighter, whiter … like you've never had a sip of coffee or red wine.
