I am tired of the white teeth agenda
Most of my teeth are crowned, they are not super white but they look natural. I am happy with my teeth. I am not crazy about the super duper white teeth, in fact I prefer not. I feel at times these dentist should not be out selling this type of thing as it is just contrary to being a dedicated health professional, it is strictly cosmetic. Just my feelings.
I thought I would get chewed out for this thread, but I am happy to see I am not alone. I must share something with you all. Several years ago poolside I was speaking with a young woman who was a pharma rep, she had the most stunning teeth, the color was simply beautiful, they truly had a special quality almost “pearl” like, a luminous look, dimensional and had a gloss. I assumed they were all crowned and inquired, I have had thousands in crown work due to just naturally bad teeth. She told me they were all natural. ANother time I saw a young man working at Costco who again just had beautiful teeth, he told me they were his. Just proves a little something I think. None of them had the neon look.
Ladies, if you want beautiful white teeth, try “Go Smile, sold on the Q and at Ulta. You apply the whitening gel and your regular toothpaste on the sonic toothbrush. It has a blue light that shines as you brush and it pulses every 30 seconds for a 2-minute total time. I got braces as an adult and my teeth look amazing. I originally bought it as a TSV from QVC, and I still order my brush set from them every few months. I buy the whitening gel from Ulta. I have used it twice a day for a year. It really works.
I don’t like the ridiculous, glow in the dark, bright white teeth either. They certainly do have an unnatureal look. I, too, agree the teeth whitening thing is a small part of the larger issue of aging. Among lots of other things, I think it’s an attempt to hold back the years. You might be successful for a few or so years, but eventually the years do catch up with you no matter what.
I much prefer to age gracefully with a lot of jewelry.
“….Men grow cold
as girls grow old,
and we all lose our charm in the end.
But square cut or pear shaped,
these rocks don’t lose their shape.
You know the rest.
White teeth are attractive, but overly bleached white teeth make one look like a vampire. They have a creepy quality; they’re too pronounced they and look like fangs. It isn’t normal to see someone’s teeth before you actually see or notice the person’s face.
I also agree there is an ‘agenda’ at play. I think it’s all part of a barbie doll syndrome. More and more, young girls and adult females are told they need to look perfect. I think it’s the reason so many females are getting their teeth whitened, staightening their hair to make it glossy, fake tanning, falling prey to cosmetic surgeries, etc. We live in a very plastic culture.
So many celebs now are sporting bleached stark white teeth. It looks neither natural nor attractive.
I’ve heard some doctors say that teeth hould be white, but not too white. Our teeth should be as white as the natural and original white of our eyes. …. That makes sense to me.
I would love to have super white teeth!
