You can’t put a price on a beautiful smile (unless you’re Julia Roberts), but you most certainly can afford to smile a little brighter. Despite fish gapes and duck faces being all the rage, nothing looks happier than a wide grin that shows off those pearly whites. From the old baking soda hack to taking a laser at the dentist’s chair, here we count down three teeth-whitening ways tailored to fit every budget.

We all know that the kitchen can be a treasure trove of products that serve us in more ways than one, and baking soda is a perfect example. One easy home remedy you can do to brighten your teeth is by to create your own strawberry-and-baking-soda whitening paste (because strawberries are a natural teeth whitener, too.) Simply crush the strawberries into a pulp, put them in the blender and add two tablespoons of baking soda to create the paste. Use it to brush your teeth or if it's too harsh on your gums, leave it on for a minute or two before rinsing out with water.

Not only is maintaining a consistently bright megawatt smile a tedious task, it’s also quite heavy on the pocket. However, if you’re a frequent user of whitening toothpaste and strips, one easy cheat to amplifying the brightness of your teeth is by wearing red lipstick. Yes, you heard that right. Scarlet hues are generally flattering but with the perfect blue-based red, your tube of rouge instantly doubles as a teeth whitening treatment. The logic is fairly simple: the blue cancels out orange and yellow tones, therefore creating the illusion of brighter and whiter teeth.
