Healthy Teeth, Happy Smile

Hello Guys, Hope you are all doing well. Your probably thinking… clean teeth, healthy smile? Well let me explain. I’ve always been complimented for my smile, but I’ve always been a little self conscious about my teeth. I never needed to wear braces nor did I ever worry about my teeth. But I guess as we all get older things change, wisdom teeth grow and shift your teeth about.  There’s so much stigma in today’s society to be instagram perfect, there will always be people knocking others down for the way they look. Also remember, you are you and YOU are amazing no matter what anybody else thinks. Well after a few years now I’ve final learnt to love both my teeth and smile. Here’s some tips to help you have healthy teeth!

Practice Smiling

This is going to sound proper cheesey… but the more you practice you smile, whether it be through selfies or in front of the mirror. The best way to be more confident definitely comes with practice, a couple of my friends never smile with their teeth (that’s a personal preference). Like I said above I get compliments about my smile, so I guess that my practice has helped!

Whitening Toothpaste

I’m quite anti any type of cosmetic surgery so teeth whitening is out of the cards for me, I guess I always think the worst will happen… but obviously I know it wont but it puts me off! So opting for a shop brought whitening toothpaste is the perfect alternative. The Colgate Max White  toothpaste is a great way to get those stubborn stains removed without teeth whitening surgery. The fresh feel and taste from the Colgate White Max White Ultimate Catalyst is amazing, I wish I knew about it sooner. My teeth are looking brighter and I’ve already seen small differences in the whiteness aswell.

 

Dentist

Even in our current circumstances, visiting the dentist is important. Well I was one of those people who hates the dentist. I gave it a miss for a few years (DON’T DO A ME) I never had any trouble, but I was stupid and should of gone every year as recommended. I could of have a serious problem which potentially could of been too late to resolve and cure. So make sure you stick to your regular dentist appointments. Like most of you I am sure the last thing we all want is to lose teeth before we get old!

Floss

I never realised just how important flossing was when I was younger. But flossing is as important as brushing your teeth.

Flossing is an important oral hygiene habit. It cleans and dislodges food stuck between your teeth, which reduces the amount of bacteria and plaque in your mouth. Plaque is a sticky film that builds up on teeth and contributes to cavities and gum disease.

Although many people brush their teeth daily, not everyone flosses their teeth as regularly as they brush. According to a national poll, about 4 in 10 floss their teeth at least once a day, and 20 percent of never floss at all.

 

So don’t forget get to get practicing those smiles with your healthy teeth and if you are feeling a bit self conscious grab a Colgate max white toothpaste to get them all nice and pearly white! You won’t regret it. Did you check out my last post all about techy fitness?

    Great post, I’ve got a similar one out. I was sent a different whitening toothpaste which I’ve found has been brilliant.

    I think I’d give this a go as well. Thanks for sharing x

    I’ve tried this toothpaste before and liked it! Although I definitely need to take better care of my teeth. I never floss unless I need to – which really needs to change! xxx
