Say Cheese

If you ask chicks what the first thing is they notice about a guy, 9 times out of 10 the answer will include the word, 'smile'. You could roll up on 'em in a $50,000 ride, step out in a sweet-ass suit with big ol' guns and a pocket full of dough, but without that million dollar grin, you're road kill. Okay, maybe that's not strictly true but still, the smile's a nice touch, and if you haven't got the ride, or the suit, or the guns, or the dough, a great smile might be a good place to start.

If you don't have an electric toothbrush, you need to get with the global program. We have electricity that powers things these days. Perhaps the vibrations in your mouth make you uncomfortable, but suck it up. Those vibrations help remove the crap from your teeth. Fact. Chances are though, to get that set of pearly white nubs of love you'll need a little extra help. Getting professional whitening is generally effective, and while that Hollywood smile is easy to maintain once achieved, the process can be pricey. We'll touch back with more products to help get you some champion chompers, but let's start small. Toothpaste. If you're using the same strawberry flavored Colgate you used when you were six, time to switch. Look for something with peroxide. That will gently bleach the stains away giving you a whiter smile.

Dr. Irwin Smigel, founder and president of the American Society for Dental Aesthetics has created Supersmile Intelligent Smile Care, a line of products designed to help rid the world of stubby yellow tusks, and we don't mean Ron Jeremy.
