Whiter Teeth Here I Come


One of the most frequent questions I get asked is how do I get my teeth so clean and white?

A few years ago, I was using a no name brand from overseas. It was a very cheap, no more than $5.00 for a whiting pen.

Generally this pen would last 3 to 6 sessions of whiting for 10 minutes. This was a dangerous amount of chemicals, but as a young teenager i was not concerned about the damages or effects of products i aimed for results. Therefore dramatic results were achieved in short amount of time.


My gums and teeth became quite sensitive when eating cold food. A combination of this product and low Iron made my gums bleed when brushing. This was not a safe option for my teeth and gums nor was it worth the whiting result.


I discontinued using the product and gave my gums and teeth a long recovery period. This experience made me very sceptical and scared to try whiting my teeth again.

I found the safest do it at home remedy while staying away from whiteners: bicarb soda and water.

(You should attempt this before using a whiting product).

Directions:

1. General hygiene is a must to maintain healthy gums and teeth, cleaning twice a day morning and night followed by using a dental stick before bed reduces the risks of stains and remaining food to get caught in-between teeth, gums and cause decay.

2. Bicarb soda; cheap, easy to use, quick and instant results.

Get a small container and add a few tea spoons of bicarb followed by a tea spoon or two of water to form a consistency like tooth paste ( you can use lemon juice instead of water however I prefer to avoid citrus acid on my teeth).
Brush on as you would with tooth paste and leave for a minute. Rinse and see the results.

Once starting my modelling career i was exposed to an industry of health professionals, models, make-up artist, photographers, brands and products. My eyes opened to the beauty industry. I was introduced to experts who knew the ins and outs of all health and beauty products.


Models offer the best advice and feedback when it comes to products such as skin care, make up and fitness. They try and experience all different brands and are in a position to compare and advertise products constantly.

When it comes to teeth whitening I wanted to get some expert recommendations on safe options for both my teeth and gums. In the last two years I've trailed and tested some of the leading brands recommended by experts in the industry.

When it comes to choosing my top 5 Whiting products I considered the following:
=cost

=time period per session
=frequency to maintain whiteness (less times I have to re-whiten the better.)
