Build Confidence and Look Better with a Brighter Smile

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Crest. The opinions and text are all mine.

Life is complicated. There are so many things to consider on a daily basis. From family to work to bills to health, there is always something to worry about, right? At 42 with a wife, three kids, a dog, and a mortgage, this all keeps me very busy. Throw in managing a small business, and I don’t really have much time NOT to worry about things. Forget that I now have a teenage daughter to top it off! LOL!!! No matter what, though, I’ve found that having self-confidence is important no matter who you are.

Confidence is a tool you can use in your everyday life to do all kinds of cool stuff, not least to stop second-guessing yourself, manage your fears and become able to do more of the things that really matter to you.

Building Confidence

When trying to built up one’s self-confidence, age, finances, appearance, profession don’t seem to matter. People of all walks of life can either lack confidence or have it in spades. No matter how you get it, self-confidence seems to make most things in life work just that much better, doesn’t it?

When trying to succeed in life, building that self-confidence can come in many ways. But not many people realize that their self-confidence works just like a muscle – it grows in response to the level of performance required of it. Either you use it or you lose it.

Importance of Your Smile

While the list is pretty long and board, I wanted to spend a couple minutes on the last task on my list. Why would I mention improving your smile? Well, because it’s a very important part of your appearance and how people see you. It’s one of the first things people see when they meet you and it’s something that can truly have a dramatic impact on how others view you.

Smiling is so important in so many ways. A smile makes you happy for one. And when you are smiling, those around you are generally going to be smiling and happy, too. It’s contagious, baby! Smiling makes you look better and friendlier, while others love to see and be around. Smiling also can lead you to laugh, which, again, is something people love to be around. Looking good and feeling good, while making those around you feel good too is probably the best possible way to boost your confidence level. How can you not feel good about yourself when everyone else around you is loving you???

Improve Your Smile

While just allowing yourself to laugh and smile more if improvement enough, there are actions you can take to really improve your smile. Of course, you can visit an orthodontist and get a consultation about braces. This is big and costly step, but a great one. If you wanted to do something easier and much less costly that will have almost immediate results, you can whiten your teeth. A smile is always better if it’s bright and white!! I’ve tried everything all types of teeth whitening kits to get my smile whiter, but Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips are what works for me. I think having a white smile is a great thing that can really make a difference, especially in the blogging world!

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

I’ve been looking at trying Crest 3D Whitestrips for a while, but never got around to it. Thankfully, Santa came through for me this year!!! While I do love socks and underwear, I think the best present left under the tree this year was the Twin Pack of Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips!! It’s finally time to see how nice and white my teeth can be!!


Crest 3D Whitestrips are really easy to use, thankfully. I’m a low maintenance type of guy and having something too fussy and complicated is not for me. You simply apply the Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips once a day for 30 minutes. After the first time, you really understand what’s involved. It’s a piece of cake! The Advanced Seal™ Technology’s no slip grip stays put, so there’s no slipping or sliding! You can even whiten on the go and drink water while using them. I love that.

Professional Quality and Results

The best part of all is the professional-level whitening treatment at a great value. Just pick them up at Walmart or on and you will start seeing a white smile after three (3) days, with full results in 20 days!!! That’s nothing and these results last 12 months and beyond!!

Crest 3D Whitestrips are enamel safe (just like at the dentist) and can remove 10 years of tough, set-in stains from coffee and wine. I drink a lot of coffee, so this is a huge win for me.

Save Your Sensitive Teeth with Crest Sensi-Stop Strips (PLUS GIVEAWAY Incl. $75 Walgreens Card)

Crest Sensi-Stop CollagePeople with sensitive teeth can have a variety of triggers ranging from sweet to sour to hot to cold. It’s a tough gig. Sure, it’s not life threatening, but it can be very painful, and it just makes life a little too unpleasant. If you can fight it, why not??

But now,Crest have just come out with a killer new product for everyone out there with sensitive teeth.   It’s a new, revolutionary product that stops sensitivity like never before! Available at Walgreens stores, tooth relief is now convenient and affordable. Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are thin, flexible strips that contain an active ingredient used by dental professionals to help stop sensitivity pain and are applied right onto the sensitive tooth that is causing you discomfort. It’s so easy!!

How Does It Work?

Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are applied directly to the areas of your teeth that are typically the most sensitive. This targeted delivery allows for longer, more direct contact on the tooth. Within minutes, the strips build a sensitivity pain barrier that lasts up to 30 days (*With the use of similar oxalate products, some patients reported sensitivity relief for periods of up to one month, while others reported relief for shorter periods)!!!
