Publicis Kaplan Thaler’s “As Nature Intended” goes beyond the generic ads that focus on the culprits of yellowed teeth (wine, coffee, smoking or tobacco, etc.) by taking more of a highbrow approach. The tag line, “As Nature Intended,” introduces the idea: just as a tattoed body once was spotless, so, too, can teeth be whitened.

Publicis Kaplan Thaler is a consistent Graphis winner. Their “Dirty Plates” won a Silver award in the Advertising Annual 2014, and their “Courage Encouraged” and “Dry Spills” advertisements both won Merits in the same book.
