I’ve kind of let my whole routine go during this quarantine and I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t even taken care of my hygiene that well. The only thing I did do is work non-stop from home remotely. I live alone so I just plopped on the couch, put on some background noise, ate snacks, and worked non-stop on my computer. The home office noticed my work and I’m getting a promotion and an award, that is going to be streamed to the rest of the company. My teeth are YELLOW! Like noticeably. How can I get them whitened fast? I have a week and a half?
First, let me congratulate you on your win and your promotion! That is excellent. Don’t be too hard on yourself about letting some things go. It seems like every person working from home I know are growing beards and relaxing on some normally fastidious habits. Plus, it sounds like you were productive in other ways.
The fastest way to whiten your teeth is with Zoom Whitening. This is an in-office whitening procedure that can whiten you thoroughly in just one appointment. However, it is most effective if you’ve recently had your teeth cleaned. Otherwise, the results could be splotchy. The first thing I’d do is schedule an appointment with your dentist to get your teeth cleaned immediately if you haven’t done that recently. When you schedule that appointment, explain about the award and see if they offer Zoom Whitening. If not, I would just call around and see who does.
They may want you to get your cleaning done there and some even offer discounts when you do both at their office. Many offices will also provide custom-fitted teeth whitening trays for you to take home with you after you are done with your appointment. Keep those in a safe place and then once every couple of years you can ask for some teeth whitening gel and give yourself an inexpensive touch-up.
Best of luck with your ceremony.
