How to achieve (and maintain) a dazzling smile

Good oral hygiene is crucial to achieving that film star smile. Without proper care of your teeth and gums, many problems can ensue, such as tooth decay, discolouring, gingivitis and mouth ulcers. None of which are particularly pleasant. The key to avoiding these things is routine. No miracle cures. No overnight remedies. With the right products, a solid routine and a little bit of know-how, you will be well on your way to achieving those dazzling white teeth in no time. Here are the three key steps to follow, at least twice a day, no excuses.

Floss

Flossing is often overlooked by many as a day to day routine, but is crucial in cleaning the gaps inbetween your teeth that you cannot reach while brushing, helping to prevent gum infections and cavities. Always floss before brushing your teeth, as this allows your toothpaste to reach between the teeth where it otherwise would not. Browse our selection of floss to find the most suitable option for you.

Brush thoroughly with good toothpaste

Depending on the results you want to achieve, there are plenty of different toothpaste options available. In terms of achieving that dazzling smile, specifically formulated whitening toothpastes are the best way to go.

Oral B 3D Brilliance toothpaste has been particularly well received by our users, with reports of noticeable improvements in teeth whiteness after consistent use.

Rinse with mouthwash afterwards

Rinsing with mouthwash cleans your entire mouth, whereas brushing and flossing alone reaches just 25%. Rinsing before bed is especially important, as it kills off any remaining plaque and germs, which would otherwise cause your mouth harm overnight.

Corsodyl mouthwash is especially effective for treatment of gum disease, as it contains an active ingredient that is clinically proven to fight bacteria.

Listerine Stay White mouthwash focuses on keeping and maintaining white teeth, by reducing stains and preventing tartar build up. Perfect for achieving that dazzling smile!
