Original statement:
The teeth are white.
Stronger statement:
The teeth are snow-white.
The teeth are very white.

1. The original statement:
We care about the object.
2. The statement with the identity hedge (a*=a):
We normally care about the object.
3. The statement with the globalization hedge (a*=0, a<1):
We fully care about the object.
