Crest 3D White User Experience Blog 4: No More Cringing At The Closeup

June 16, 2010 12:00 AM

So, it's the end of the two week trial and I'm a believer. I'm glad SOHH and P&G gave me the chance to try out Crest 3D White toothpaste. My teeth went from dull, yellowish to bright pearly white. Even those hard-to reach areas between my teeth are brighter.

And knowing my teeth are dazzling has given me an extra confidence boost. It's not like I hid my smile before, it's just that I now flaunt my smile every chance I get.

Like I said, I've always been a practical, no nonsense type of girl. Before, I'd get complements on my smile and I'd cringe hoping no one got close enough to notice how dull my teeth really were. Now, I welcome the closeup.

Yesterday, I saw some friends I hadn't seen in months who told me how great I look. They couldn't pinpoint it, but I knew it was my teeth that changed my "look." What a difference a brighter smile makes.
