Brightening my smile with Oral B and at home whitening kits

Oral B

I don’t know about everyone else but a smile really is the best accessory. Well I mean I’m sure a Chanel handbag would be a better accessory. But seeing as I don’t have one of those (yet). My smile is definitely my best accessory at the moment. And I don’t know about you, but I’m forever looking at ways to brighten my smile. After all so many people can be self-conscious about how their teeth look so who doesn’t want whiter teeth? I know I certainly do. Which is why I’ve been on a bit of a mission to get a brighter and white smile.

So what have I been doing to get this? Well changing my toothbrush really helped. I’ve recently converted to using an electric toothbrush and this one from Oral B is just brilliant at whitening my teeth. I have the Oral-B Smart Series 4000 CrossAction electric toothbrush. Which allows you to connect with the Oral B app to give you real-time feedback on your brushing habits. And having that information has definitely helped! Plus as the head moves, rotates and pulsates to surround each tooth it can remove 100% more plague than a regular toothbrush. Which again has helped with brightening my smile. I got mine from Tooth Stars. As well as showing the best deals on where to get a new toothbrush from, they also have loads of tips on how to get a brighter and whiter smile. Give general dental health advice and help you find a dentist.

So along with my new toothbrush, I’ve also been using some at home whitening products to really brighten my smile. And two that I’ve been loving are the Janina Ultra White Activated Charcoal Toothpaste. And the Janina Ultra White Clean & White Teeth Whitening Foam. While the toothpaste is a little unusual in that it contains charcoal. It really does work to help remove stains without causing harm to the enamel. And the whitening foam is a great extra to use a few times a week. As it whitens but also cleans teeth at the same time. Plus the small tube is really handy to carry around for on-the-go teeth whitening.

    Ooo I’ve recently started using charcoal toothpaste too. I use the toothy tabs from Lush. They’re supposed to taste like cherry cola but it’s more like pure bicarb!

    We’ve just all converted to oral B electric toothbrushes and the difference is amazing. My teeth feel clean for so much longer than traditional toothbrushes. Took a bit of time to get used to the feeling that your brain is being buzzed though!

    Hi I already use Janina, but did not know that they do this charcoal one, will deffo be looking into this 🙂 x

    The electric toothbrushes with the round heads are so much more effective at cleaning your teeth and are really great. I’ve heard such a great things about the whitening toothpastes with charcoal, but I’ve yet to try one. You are getting great results x

    I love my oral b toothbrush! I am on the look out for the perfect whitening tooth paste. Not tried this one yet, so will add it to my list

    Never tried any whitening products for my teeth yet but I would want to try in the future as well. Let’s see if it will reach my expectation.

    I’ve got the Janina products and have been using them. Not bad! Really need a new electric tooth brush though, love the look of this Oral B one x

    Now that I’ve had my veneers done and my teeth whitened I really need to get myself a proper electric toothbrush! xxx

    The electric toothbrushes really do make your teeth feel extra clean, I haven’t tried the charcoal toothpaste though.

  11. April 7, 2017 / 8:18 pm

    These toothbrushes sound like they give a better clean than the long head ones. I’ve not tried any toothpaste with charcoal yet.

  12. April 7, 2017 / 8:45 pm

    oh this sounds appealing I may have to give this one a good shot! xo

  13. April 7, 2017 / 9:28 pm

    I always have an electric toothbrush handy and am forever trialing new whitening toothpastes! x

    I absolutely love my electric toothbrush. It’s the best thing I’ve ever bought to look after my teeth and I now rarely need to go to the hygienist’s. It make such a difference, doesn’t it?

    Oral B toothbrushes are life. I am yet to own an electric toothbrush though and when I do it will be Oral B.

    Brushing twice a day really helps us keep our teeth white. This looks like a fab electric toothbrush x

  17. April 8, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    We both have electric toothbrushes and currently have a black toothpaste which is said to brighten teeth, admittedly I am not too convinced!

  18. April 9, 2017 / 12:09 pm

    I have always been very conscious of my teeth and the fact that I do not have a perfect smile. I would love my teeth to be whiter and straighter x

  19. April 10, 2017 / 10:41 pm

    Surprisingly I haven’t tried that many things yet. I tried out Mr Blanc last year which worked in the short term but normally I just try my best to keep on brushing my teeth, would be lovely to get whiter teeth 😀

    Love this post! I’ve just bought some charcoal toothpaste can’t wait to try it out!
