How To Get a Whiter Smile for the Holidays

It is said that a redhead's tooth enamel is thinner. This product will give you pearly whites.

Red hair, check.

Confidence, check.

..Now all you need is a white smile. With the holiday season in full bloom, you’re probably enjoying the items that stain your teeth the most: wine, tea and coffee. Since natural redheads usually have very fair, translucent skin, the skin is thinner than that of people with other hair colors. And having been derived from the ectoderm, their tooth enamel is thinner as well.

So the effect, due to the thinner enamel, is more of the underlying tooth surface (dentin) showing through the enamel. And the dentin is normally a yellowish or grayish color. As a result, a redhead’s teeth will appear to be less white, because more dentin is apparent.

Many also say the vibrant-crimson hair color can bring “out” the yellow undertone color of the teeth.

The best way you can do this for the holidays is to invest in a product like the CVS Platinum Teeth Whitening Kit. The tray and advanced gel formula whiten teeth up to two shades lighter with just one 20-minute treatment!


The CVS Platinum Whitening Kit includes one soft, flexible tray pre-filled with a pleasant, peppermint-flavored whitening formula treatment. The tray’s unique design keeps the mixture in place to better adhere to teeth for accelerated whitening – no molding or boiling required. To provide ongoing brightening, each kit comes with two bonus whitening treatments for future use in an easy-to-use syringe for mess-free refills of the innovative tray.

Usually, whitening teeth at home requires the patience to deal with the mess and the not-so-great taste. But, this kit fits comfortably in the mouth and above all else, provides superior results. Within hours, teeth are noticeably whiter — and that’s great news because we do not need to waste dollars on expensive whitening treatments at the dentist.

It is available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy stores and on for $29.99.

If you’re a CVS Beauty Club member, you will receive incredible beauty benefits/savings, including:

  • $5 ExtraBucks® Rewards for every $50 cumulatively spent on qualifying beauty products
  • 10% off beauty shopping pass at enrollment
  • $3 ExtraBucks® Rewards on the member’s birthday

Since redheads are known to feel more pain at the dentist, this kit provides you with results and zero pain.

Rock it like a Redhead!
