07 Jun Flash em! Those pearly whites!
What’s the first thing that you notice about a person? Their hair, their eyes, their cheekbone structure? We’re going to stop you right there and say that it’s definitely all in the smile.
A simple smile can brighten or lighten your day. But what if you are hiding behind coffee stained, not so sparkling teeth? We’re glad you asked because we have some solutions for you to brighten and whiten those fangs and start to smile again with confidence and an extra pep in your step!
Start with knowing your ingredients. Hydrogen Peroxide is one of the most common ingredients used in tooth whitening. Whether it be at your local dentist or at home. So we recommend starting with a toothpaste which contains Hydrogen Peroxide to whiten those teeth. Ok, we hear you, Elle Woods surely has a stash of Hydrogen Peroxide to get her hair so blonde right? Why would you want to put it anywhere near your mouth! There’s no need to be afraid of this ingredient, combined with other ingredients such as baking soda. the levels are super low but also super effective. However, we suggest only using on adult teeth as baby teeth are much thinner than permanent teeth so maybe keep your whitening toothpaste out of the reach of children.
Pick your toothpaste. As we suggested, a whitening toothpaste is always a good idea and the perfect place to start for whiter, brighter teeth. We have tried and tested the Colgate Optic White Toothpaste. Enamel safe and recommended for daily use. In addition to whitening those teeth, the Optic White Formulation also offers incredible oral health benefits such as fighting cavities, fresher breath and also helps to prevent tartar build up and strengthen tooth enamel. Find out more about the range here. There’s a very good reason why Colgate Optic White is the #1 teeth whitening brand in Australia and New Zealand – because it works!
What about a mouthwash? Did you know that certain foods can also discolour your teeth, Foods like blueberries, blackberries, beetroot, soy sauce, and curry all have a contributing factor. So don’t think your teeth are safe just because you don’t drink coffee or aren’t a smoker. Using a mouthwash daily (or twice daily), can help lift stains from teeth helping you to achieve that bright white smile. As well as other huge benefits like fighting against bacteria and getting to those hard to reach places. We have recently discovered the new Listerine Bright White which contains a combination of lemon and salt to help achieve amazing results. (trust us! it works! and is surprisingly refreshing!)
