Say it with a smile

Well Hollywood will never beckon me for my smile, as I have always tended to smile without showing my teeth. I am a bit self-conscious about them - I would love them to be brighter and whiter.

I am nervous about dentists, I won’t lie. I would always tend to choose lipsticks with a cool undertone as these tend to make your teeth look whiter.

Some classic examples are Mac's Russian Red or Wetn’Wild's Red Velvet. True Red look awesome on all skin tones. Another good one to use is a plum toned lipstick. If you are pale, then use a nice bronzer on your cheeks. Accentuate your eyes using bold dramatic colours.

When I tried some of the Beverly Hills Formula Remineralising Serum in recent months, I must admit to being impressed by the results. This cutting-edge formula contains potassium nitrate and high levels of hydroxyapatite – a natural compound proven to form a new protective layer and help make teeth appear smoother and brighter.

Specifically developed to help restore and protect the enamel, whilst helping to keep stains at bay, there are two other products in the range.

Formulated especially for sensitive teeth, Pink Pearl takes safe and efficient stain removal and enamel protection to a new level. This one is probably my favourite as my teeth are quite sensitive.

Black Pearl helps to deliver excellent stain removal results and anticavity protection, this advanced formula contains activated charcoal to help eliminate the bacteria that cause bad breath. Combined with professional whitening ingredient PAP, pyrophosphates, hydrated silica and pearl powder, it helps remove surface and deep stains – without harming the enamel.

The Brilliant Pearl Whitening Kit achieves long-lasting whitening results from the comfort of your own home. The innovative pen works as an express touch-up service, containing hydrogen peroxide that helps to remove the build-up of plaque.

The Whitening Strips offer professional dental whitening in five simple and easy to use steps that only take 30 minutes. I didn’t experience any sensitivity from this and it did lighten my teeth by one or two shades. Because they are strips and you aren’t bathing your whole tooth in a gum shield, they are great on the go.

Personally, I have always found Listerine to be the best mouthwash; it comes in many flavours and some are not too strong, and it gives a great fresh mouth feel.

Avoiding red wine, cola and tea and coffee also helps to reduce staining.

An electric toothbrush was the best investment I have ever made for my teeth in terms of keeping them smooth. You can invest in one of these from around €20 and Oral B is my favourite brand. Usually you can find offers online for the replacement heads, so they work out to be cost effective and time efficient.
