Want a smile on your wedding day as dazzlingly white as your wedding dress? Of course you do. Willing to brave a session in the dentist's chair to get it? We didn't think so.
Pearly-white seekers, there's a new player in the teeth whitening game, and it's nothing short of genius. Enter Supersmile's 6 Minutes to a Supersmile system, which promises a whiter smile in less time than it took you to self address your save-the-dates. Six minutes, to be exact. We gave it a test drive and it delivers. The whole twice-a-day routine takes hardly any more time than the thorough brush, rinse, and floss you've already been rigorously practicing (right, ladies?). Only difference? We walked away with a fresher, brighter smile every time.

The core system consists of just three products (the whole kit and caboodle is available at Supersmile.com). Each one has a pretty wow-worthy whitening factor when used alone, but together they make something miraculous: a three-step system that works instantaneously and keeps working for months.
Step one: Start by swishing the alcohol-free Whitening Pre-Rinse, which contains hydrogen peroxide but manages to avoid the icky aftertaste, for 15 seconds.
Step two: Next, swipe on the gel encased in the Professional Activating Rods, which come with absorbent cotton swabs for easy application. The gel mixes stain-removing sodium bicarbonate with hydrogen peroxide for an extra stain-removing boost before you brush. Let the gel sink in for one minute (so much more manageable than the half hour we've endured with other systems).
Step three: Brush it away with the Professional Whitening System, which consists of whitening toothpaste and a whitening accelerator. (Apply 'em side by side on your toothbrush.)
If you must cheat with coffee in the morning, we forgive you. Just pop a piece of Supersmile's Professional Whitening Gum ($5; supersmile.com), or try a swipe of Quickee ($18; supersmile.com), a minty on-the-go gel that dissolves on your teeth instantly, erasing stains all day. The best part? Even if you've had more root canals than you can count, you can rest easy. Every product in the system uses a proprietary whitening agent, Calprox, that lifts away stains from both natural teeth and caps or veneers.
Get started now and you'll get a brilliant grin with zero extra work. Could you ask for a better wedding present?
