City Pulse

By Abby Reid

It’s been said that you can never be too rich or too thin, but we’d like to add an additional piece of advice to this mantra – your teeth can never be too white. After all, most would classify stains, brown spots and discoloration as undesirable oral attributes. Still, we’re in a recession. No one wants to spend hundreds of dollars on laser whitening treatments that can take months to improve the coloring of one’s teeth.

The LUSTER Weekend Teeth Whitening System works to whiten teeth significantly in three days, without any unnatural or harsh chemicals. Available at Walgreens, CVS and through Avon, this system is easily accessible – and generates some pretty quick results.

Many women find themselves wanting to improve their appearance in subtle ways in a short period of time for a special occasion – a high school reunion, a cocktail social, or simply to feel better about themselves. Using the LUSTER weekend system is a foolproof way to eliminate stains and upgrade your smile. Created by dental professionals who specifically used a lower concentration of peroxide, this system is designed to be used two to three times daily and involves only two steps – simply use the whitening mouth rinse and brush on the whitening gel.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to feel like a million bucks. And if you’re lucky, you won’t have to spend anything at all! We’re giving five free weekend kits away to our readers. Simply send an email to with “LUSTER” in the subject line by Thursday September 24th and be sure to include your name, phone number and e-mail address in the body of the e-mail.
