OK, please don’t think I am shallow, but I want to know what is the fastest way to makeover my teeth that doesn’t cost a lot of money. I have a reunion coming up in three months. I wan’t going to go, but then thought if I can make myself over I might show up. I don’t have much money. I can get a new haircut, buy a new outfit, and then have a few hundred dollars left over. What can I do to makeover my smile with that amount of money?

The most effective and dramatic thing you can do for your teeth, within that budget, would be to have your teeth whitened. That one simple step can make you look years younger. Plus, you won’t have to find an expert cosmetic dentist. Almost any cosmetic dentist can do it.
If you get Zoom Whitening, your teeth will be as white as possible in just one appointment. However, Zoom Whitening is more expensive than take-home teeth whitening. The take home procedure takes longer than Zoom Whitening, but three months will be plenty of time. In fact, that method allows you to control the level of whitening.
