Thanks to three of my favorite things — red wine, beer, and coffee — my teeth haven’t been as pearly white as usual. But I don’t have the patience for whitening strips, so I opted for GoSmile…their little ampoules are about the size of a pencil eraser and I loved pretending I was “erasing” the stains from my teeth!
Within just a few days (seriously, like, three days) I already felt more prepared to face the photographer at a wedding I was attending. Even better: GoSmile has toothpaste to keep my teeth white and “touch-up” ampoules that I can use for immediately after I indulge in a glass of Malbec.
Cheers to a brighter, whiter holiday season!
