Teeth Whitening & Go-To Beauty

by Sandra_Bennett on ‎01-15-2012 12:45 PM

Considering how much time I spend looking for the most effective skin care and makeup, you might assume I would have at least thought about getting whiter teeth. Nope. For years, the entire teeth-whitening industry wasn’t even on my radar. Sure, I read articles about how whiter teeth make you looker younger, healthier, and more attractive. So, I bought whitening toothpaste and considered the case closed. I drank my coffee and tea day after day (in fact, I’m drinking a cup as a write this!) and never thought again about the color of my smile…until I broke some bonding on my tooth. When I went to the dentist to have it replaced, he held a shade chart to my teeth so he could create a matching color. I noticed he picked a shade that didn’t look white. Then he said, “Your teeth are fairly discolored.” Ugh!

 

Coincidentally, a few days later, I ran into Dr. Thomas Connelly. While Dr. Connelly brings GO SMiLE to QVC, he is also a prestigious cosmetic dentist in Manhattan. In fact, he is one of only a couple hundred dentists in the world accredited by the American Society for Dental Aesthetics. I asked him how my teeth looked. He gave it to me straight and it was not what I wanted to hear. In fact, I think he used the words “brown” and “gray." I like and trust Dr. Connelly, so I decided I would take his advice. Several months later, my teeth are much whiter.  I feel like this small change has made a dramatic improvement in my appearance. Even my lipstick looks better against a backdrop of whiter teeth!

 

I have been wanting to blog about my experience with whiter teeth and tell you about the products I’m using for a couple of months. However, now I’m glad I waited, because I just found out that our Today’s Special Value on January 16 is going to feature GO SMiLE's most advanced technology yet. I have been using the Double-Action Ampoules, but with this kit, you get the ampoules and a light device that speeds up the whitening action.

 

According to the product information, you can get whiter teeth in just three 10-minute sessions. You basically apply the ampoules (which I love) and then hold the Smile Whitening Light up to your mouth. In a clinical study, participants who used the Triple-Action Whitening Light System achieved an average improvement of seven shades in one 30-minute session. Pretty impressive!

 

This Today’s Special Value is part of our Go-To-Beauty Event, where we will feature our best brands, including WEN by Chaz Dean, StriVectin, Mally, tarte, and many more of my favorites! In fact, you can try 10 products all at once in the NewBeauty 10-piece TestTube for $29.96. It’s a great value. The full-size Mally mascara and tarte EmphasEYES eyeliner in the tube would cost more to purchase separately than what you pay for all 10 products! We present the TestTubes only a few times a year and they go quickly. However, the Auto-Delivery program is available if you want to get this TestTube, and then new TestTubes in April, August, and October.

 

I’ll be presenting the GO SMiLE Today’s Special Value and the NewBeauty TestTube during Go-To Beauty Innovations at 6 p.m. ET on January 16, followed by two hours of WEN by Chaz Dean from 7 9 p.m. ET. What new products are you interested in trying? Have you used something lately that you love? Our blog system does not allow me (or any of our bloggers) to respond to your comments here (sorry!), but I’ll read them and you can always chat with me directly on my Facebook page. I would love to hear about your “Go-To Beauty” products!
