When I see the celebs on TV, I’m sometimes blinded by their shiny, white teeth. Since I love coffee, red wine and many foods that stain teeth, I’m a bit jealous of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry is very expensive, and whitening strips make my teeth feel sensitive. What’s a mom to do? I’ve tried whitening […]
Finding the time to take good care of myself is hard to manage. As many moms know, personal care and beauty tend to fall to the bottom of the ever-growing “to-do” list. I make time to brush and floss twice daily, so I avoid cavities. But maintaining pearly white teeth feels like much more of […]
