It is almost impossible to buy a toothpaste that does not promise any level of whitening. Even if you are not interested in having whiter teeth, badly – the anti-inflammatory formula will bleach your sensitive teeth if you like it or not. But the fact is that many people is interested in whiter teeth – bleaching products and treatments are a multibillion dollar industry, according to Business Wire – which makes it quite interesting that a company tries to get colorful teeth to happen.
New York City-based brand Chrom has created what they call a "Polish" – but it's not Polish in the cleaning sense. It's "just like nail polish", says the brand's website; But, unlike nail polish, Chron founder, David Silverstein, tells about New York Post says it is safe to put in the mouth and developed by dentists. Photos on the Chromium Instagram page show some models with their teeth completely coated in a single color and others with only one or two teeth painted as an accent.
Currently there are 10 colors: Pretty in Pink, Baby Blue, Mint, Gold Dust, Candy Floss, Fairy Dust, 24 Karat, Sunshine, Silver, and Penny. With lip-like packaging, they range from $ 18 to $ 22, with the metallic shades falling on the more expensive end. Silverstein says that a glitter line is coming soon.
According to the brand, Chrom "can be applied and removed in seconds, lasting up to 24 hours at a time. It does not melt when you eat and have no taste, so it will not move up your brunch plans." Right for brunch was definitely the first place I was thinking of wearing pink teeth.
If you've always dreamed of having gold teeth without grilling or playing a blue smile without drinking a slushee first, Chrom could answer your very niche prayers. But before you buy the color that calls you, you may want to consider the ingredients not listed on the site, and Silverstein refused to tell us what they are specific to the Post and just say it is made of corn alcohol pigments similar to food coloring. It is also worth noting that while similar products have been used for theater, movies and even cosplay for several years, there are currently no studies on long-term, everyday use.
That's said, I'm not sure anyone sees green teeth like a day-by-year kind thing. At least not yet.
