Since I was a little tot, my Mom was serious about us taking care of our teeth. They don't stay perfect as you get older, she always told us.
I don't like going to the dentist (who does?!), so in order to minimize my visits, I became obsessive about my teeth. I brush for at least 2 minutes, making sure to get every tooth, my tongue, and my gums, floss every night and use mouthwash twice a day.
But after all this work, I still felt like my teeth weren't as white or shiny as I would like them to be. They are letting me down when it comes to how white they are! I look at my friends' and coworkers' teeth, and everyone seems to smile with bright, pearly whites. What is everyone's secret?
My dentist offered a teeth whitening treatment but going for my two checkups a year is enough for me. Plus, it's way out of my budget, so I turned to some at-home DIY remedies, like baking soda and charcoal. Take it from me - don't waste your time. They do nothing.
I was telling my friend about my dilemma, and she started to laugh at me. How have you not tried teeth whitening strips yet? She told me she had been using ARC for weeks, and it doesn't cause damage because it uses enamel-safe ingredients.
It sounded a little too good to be true. But, it was only $45, and they had a 60-day money-back guarantee, so I thought I could at least try it.
It arrived at my doorstep soon after! I couldn't wait to see if it worked. The box came with 28 strips, meaning I could get 14 treatments out of it, and an ARC blue light device. I put the strips on expecting I would have to sit still and do nothing for the next 30 mins. But they stayed in place so well, I could continue with my face mask and moisturizer.
I took the strips off and could already see a slight color difference! I was impressed - the process was so quick and easy, and I experienced no pain. On top of that, the ingredients are actually safe, so no damage to my teeth!
How white could it make my teeth, though? I wanted them to be really white - of course, not Ross Geller white, you know!
For the next week, ARC fit perfectly into my night-time routine. Each day I could see my teeth getting whiter and brighter. At the end of the week, my teeth were the perfect shade, and I was delighted.
To keep my pearly whites the perfect pearly whites, I invested in some extra strips for a once-every-week-or-two touch-up.
The ARC Teeth Whitening Kit was exactly what I was looking for to complete my oral hygiene routine (and bump up my Instagram game!). I can't believe I didn't try it sooner. And now, I'm smiling all the time, so everyone can see my amazing teeth. Thanks, Mom and ARC!
