The Comprehensive Guide To Whitening Teeth
Discover how to safely obtain a set of pearly white teeth naturally and from the convenience of your own home!
In “The Comprehensive Guide To Whitening Teeth” you will learn specific step-by-step strategies to whiten your teeth by up to 11 shades. While other books emphasize the importance of maintaining oral hygiene, it is ultimately not enough to whiten your teeth as it does nothing to address the SOURCE of the discoloration. Brushing your teeth and cleaning your mouth is not the same as whitening teeth. Tooth discoloration is the result of eating, drinking or inhaling (in the case of smokers) particles that get seep through the fine cracks in the enamel (surface) of the tooth and give it a yellow tinge.
The important thing to understand is that brushing ones teeth will only scrape of debris from the surface layer of the tooth and do nothing to solve the discoloration in the layer underneath it. Yet with simple steps thousands of people including myself, have been able to improve the clarity of their set of teeth, giving them an attractive and confident smile.

Newton: A Life of Discovery (The True Story of Sir Isaac Newton) (A Concise Historical Biography)
“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” – Isaac Newton
While the above quote portrays the child-like innocence of the great man and speaks volumes of his humility, in reality, Newton had a less fortunate childhood. Born in a remote village without the nurturing care of a loving parent, he never held back from speaking his mind. He argued bitterly when instigated, worked in secrecy, and even turned towards self-imposed isolation for long periods. Despite this, he discovered and achieved more than anyone could have conceived, both before and after his time…
