Dear Dish-it: My Teeth Are Yellow

Dear Dish-it,

I tried whitening toothpaste but they're still yellow and I don't smile much because of it. I know some girls who got their teeth whitened...but I don't know how they did it. How do I get mine white, too?

Dear sb,

Here are my suggestions on what you can do to make your teeth whiter:

  • Make sure you keep on brushing your teeth at least twice a day - maybe even more! I carry an extra toothbrush and a mini tube of toothpaste in my purse. After I eat lunch, I duck into the nearest washroom and quickly brush my teeth!
  • Stop drinking so much soda - the acids in cola stain your teeth.
  • Try using a whitening toothpaste that includes a well-known dental association's stamp of approval, so you know it's safe to use.
  • Dentists are able to bleach your teeth to make them much whiter, but first you'll have to get your parents' permission and then you'll have to go see the dentist so he or she can let you know whether bleaching your teeth is an option for you or not.
  • If the dentist says it's OK for you to get your teeth bleached, be ready to shell out some big bucks!
  • A cheaper option is to get an over-the-counter bleaching system from the drugstore - but ask your mom or dad to help you pick a safe one to use on your teeth.

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
