'Queen of Smiles' Catrise Austin gives tips for a whiter smile at home

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Teeth whitening can reap big rewards.

A recent survey from Proctor & Gamble showed that 58 percent of participants were more likely to be hired and 53 percent received larger salary offers after their teeth had been whitened, and a survey of adults found that 96 percent think an attractive smile makes someone more appealing to the opposite sex.

Those treatments can cost hundreds at the dentist's office - but there are a few techniques that can be done at home to get a whiter smile. Self-proclaimed "Queen of Smiles" Dr. Catrise Austin answered questions about teeth whitening and what natural and organic products can make teeth brighter.

More of Dr. Austin's advice can be found in her book, "GetSmiled: The Ultimate Guide to Improving your Image," or at her website: www.thequeenofsmiles.com
