Sixties Cinema Scenes Week: Yellow Submarine, Not Yellow Teeth.

The Beatles‘ feature animated film, Yellow Submarine, came out in 1968. We had it on VHS in the ’80s and BOY did it get a workout in our fam VCR. My brother and I watched it over, and over and over. It helped instill in me, at an early age, a healthy appreciation of The Beatles.

I was simulataneously fascinated with and terrified of the Blue Meanies. Since I’ve rewatched the flick as an adult, I now realize the most terrifying thing about them is NOT that they roll 60-deep, are violent, and are friends with an enorm glove that shoots people like a gun. No. I’m irrationally frightened of their yellow teeth. If that doesn’t scream villain, I don’t know what does. Observe:

You know? They’d look a million times better if they’d lose that lipstick (I mean, I realize we’re talking about cartoon characters here, but that red only exacerbates the issue.) I recommend two items for whiter teeth, stat:

Go SMiLE Go All Out Deluxe Set ($120) This kit features the entire two-step smile program in a single package. Yes, it’s splurgy, but use it for seven days and you will see a difference.

The set includes:
14 ampoules for seven days
Seven mint Touch Ups to keep your smile white and freshen breath
Go SMiLE AM and PM toothpastes with aromatherapy essential oils

I keep the Touch Ups on me in the included silver case for maintaining my situation, especially post-coffee or red wine.

High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 in Red-y To Wear ($14) Clinique has done the work for you and enlisted the help of a dentist to identify 12 lipstick shades (including Red-y To Wear, pictured above) that instantly make teeth look whiter. These shades are proven to make teeth look at least one shade brighter–it was confirmed using a dental colour guide. The 12 brightening shades include:

    I purchased Tres White at my dentist’s office before my wedding and started it 14 days prior. It was easy to use and the results were great!
