I went to the dentist yesterday for a check-up – .I hate it, but it’s a necessary evil if you want to keep smiling. There is nothing more off-putting than rotten teeth. And if you don’t keep your teeth healthy you will never be able to take advantage of any cosmetic dentistry or teeth whitening. There are some brilliant offers on 5pm Health & Beauty – laser whitening at Dentawhite in Glasgow for just £239 instead of £499 is just one.
But before you think about that, looks after your teeth by brushing. I’ve been using Beverly Hill Formula toothpastes for a while now – their Whitening toothpastes are really good – and recently have been trying out their new Choice Gum & Whitening Expert toothpaste, available from July, exclusively in Superdrug.
It’s been good timing actually, because although I didn’t need anything done on this trip, my dentist said my gums needed a little more care.
It’s not that expensive, at £3.49, and it contains Vitamin E to invigorate and strengthen the gums, plus Fluoride to protect any exposed root areas.
Gum disease is not attractive, but it affects nine out of 10 people at some point in their lives. Bad breath may be a sign of it, and that’s pretty rank as well – so make sure you look after your gums as well as your teeth. And then those awful trips to the dentist won’t be so frequent!
