As I consider whether I’ll want to go the extra step and get my teeth whitened after I get my braces off (next week!), I’ve been doing a bit of research.

Here’s a fun article that talks about the blinding whiteness of some people’s veneered and bleached teeth, particularly in the entertainment industry (like Michael Douglas and Hilary Duff–I don’t really know who she is.)

It talks about stars who get porcelain veneers that look unnatural, about over-the-counter treatments like Crest Whitestrips, and the impact of shows like Extreme Makeover, which I’ve never seen. Though now I’m curious.

Anyway, if you’d like to read the article, go here.
