Everyone knows that coffee, tea and wine can stain your teeth. But did you know that soy sauce, berries and curry are also culprits? You may not have them every day like you do coffee (or wine, hey I don’t judge!) but they do harm nonetheless.
I had my teeth professionally whitened a few years ago. It worked well (it should have for $500). But since I’m a big fan of everything on the list above, inevitably stains started popping up again. Plus, beauty bloggers will agree that there’s nothing like having to take close up pictures of yourself smiling on a regular basis to make you judge just how pearly your pearly whites are.
The timing was perfect to try Rembrandt’s Stain Dissolving Strips ($22.99, 56 count), part of their Intense Stain line. And if you’ve ever had a wine stain (on your teeth – or elsewhere), you know intense is a good word to describe it. The strips promise to noticeably whiten tough surface stains in two weeks, and protect against the build-up of future stains by dissolving new surface stains before they have the chance to set.
And who better than Rembrandt to put to the task of stain removal? In 1989, they released the first whitening toothpaste on the market and have been upping their game consistently ever since.
Application is super easy. The strips are a cling film that stick to and cover your teeth. All you need to do is make sure you have them on the correct side. To assure that, there’s a little notch on one edge with instructions on where it should be in relation to your thumbs while holding it.
It sounds way more complicated than it is, and once I really understood it, it was an “ah -ha!” moment. I put them on wrong the first time, being the notorious directions skimmer that I am.
They’re made from the same enamel safe ingredient dentists use and they dissolve in 5-10 minutes, though not completely for everyone. They say some people may experience slower dissolution between teeth. That must be me, because I need to brush them to remove any lingering bits (which feel like tiny pieces of paper). But when is having to brush your teeth ever a bad thing? Plus, I find that it’s a small price to pay for a product that works, which these do.
After using them for the promised two weeks, my smile does indeed look brighter. I put them on these after my morning coffee and I like the fact that they were not only working on older stains, but preventing my AM addiction from turning in to a new stain.
So, have a curry with a glass of wine, followed by a a slice of blueberry pie and coffee – Rembrandt Intense Stain: Stain Removing Strips have your teeth covered for any stain situation…literally!
