Who doesn’t want a whiter smile? Perfectly pearly whites are everywhere, from the movies and TV to every other picture on your Instagram feed. Making sure your Instagram teeth are shiny and white is no problem at all, we’ve all got the apps to whiten our teeth in seconds, but in real life, it’s not quite as simple! White teeth can seem really unachievable, or something you need to spend hundreds of dollars on in a painful treatment at the dentist. Well, I’m here to tell you that’s not true! For SO many years I relied on super affordable, super easy Crest Whitening Strips for a gorgeous white smile, and I always got soo many compliments.

My favorite and most purse-friendly option from Crest are the 3D White Classic Vivid Whitestrips, $34. It’s a pack of 10 strips that you use over the course of ten days, and I’ve found that I don’t even need to use the full pack, meaning I can get two separate teeth whitening treatments from one pack. So, when you think about it, it’s only about $16 every six months for whiter teeth – that’s not a bad deal! You just wear the strips for 30 minutes a day, and after the first few days you’ll notice all your stains from coffee and food and drink just start to magically disappear, it’s incredible!

Here’s how I use them, and my other super affordable hack for polishing teeth:
