Go with a Pro

Dentist-administered laser treatments (around $1500) and PROFESSIONAL WHITENING TRAYS (around $500 to $1000) are the quickest, most effective ways to brighten teeth. The high concentration of bleach dissolves stains and lightens enamel by up to five shades, says Michael Apa, D.D.S.

"Professional whitening is an excellent investment: Results can be seen in an hour and they last up to a year."

Slick Trick

Gold and orange lipstick shades can actually accentuate yellow teeth, while pinks and blue-reds make teeth look whiter, says celebrity makeup artist Karen Kawahara.
