Tips to achieving the perfect smile :) [Review]

By 6:00 PM

A smile speaks every language. A healthy smile wouldn't be the same without shiny teeth to lend their support. :D

So what is the most important tip to achieving the perfect smile? To me, it will be to brush my teeth at least twice a day to maintain appropriate oral hygiene.

A good toothpaste would definitely aid in your daily brushing routine for a healthier smile! :) 

Here's a new toothpaste from Darlie that has been clinically proven to effectively whiten your teeth in 14 days. The Speedy Whitening Agent (SWA) in the Darlie Charcoal Clean White Toothpaste helps to remove yellowish stains. 

So what's so different about this toothpaste from other brands? 

This formula contains charcoal particles which helps to deeply cleanse your oral cavity at the same time removes surface stains to whiten your teeth naturally. Sounds good right? And best part is it's value for money, a huge tube of toothpaste for only $3.20 (160g)! Do give it a try! :D

Apart from the usual tip on brushing your teeth at least twice a day, here's 9 dental tips from which I found  to be pretty useful :D

"Proper dental care is essential throughout the life cycle, no matter what your age. Here are some tips that should bring a smile to your face":

1. Your teeth and gums are made up of calcium, so you can imagine how important it is to make a deposit in the calcium bank. Eating foods such as yogurt, cheese and soybeans will keep your teeth strong. For breakfast, try having yogurt topped with a crunchy whole-grain cereal and fresh fruit to start your day off right.

2. Vitamin D, most of which we get from the sun's rays, helps us absorb the calcium in our body. This is just another benefit of getting outdoors and exercising. If you don't know what your vitamin D level is, it's easy to check with a simple blood test.

3. Diets that are deficient in vitamin C can cause severe dental problems, including loose teeth and bleeding gums. Try a salad with citrus fruits, such as orange or grapefruit sections, to boost your body's ability to fight those destructive symptoms, as well as plaque. Be sure to buffer citrus fruits by including them as part of a meal, because their acid content could potentially erode tooth enamel.

4. Although it seems like a "duh" statement, avoiding sugary foods is pivotal to help ensure dental health. Foods high in sugar, like candy (particularly the sticky types), convert to acids inside your mouth and can cause the harmful decay you're trying to avoid.

5. Saliva is one of our body's strongest soldiers battling bacteria. Foods that promote saliva production, such as tart or sour foods including lemons, limes, cherries and cranberries, can help your body fight bacteria in your mouth. Drinking water is another great way to produce saliva, clear bacteria and cleanse your oral cavity. Foods that have a high water content also help to thwart the process of decay by diluting the sugars in the foods you consume. In other words, eat your fruits and veggies.

6. If you can't find your floss during the day, opt for Mother Nature's toothbrush. Hard, crunchy foods, such as carrots and apples, can clean your teeth naturally.

7. Make sure you are brushing and flossing twice-a-day – every day! Flossing should be a part of your morning routine, and both brushing and flossing after dinner could even help you lose weight by discouraging bedtime snacking.

8. See your dentist every six months. Your teeth may not look dirty from the outside, but bacteria and plaque lurks in places you cannot see in the mirror.

9. Rinse out your mouth with mouthwash, or at least water, after every meal. This practice will help kill germs and prevent others from knowing you had onions on your sandwich.

Hope these tips helps to keep your teeth healthy & looking good too! :D

The tips emphasized more on proper diet. That’s good. They will truly help to modify the food habits of many who all want to smile bright. And thanks for mentioning about the Mother Nature’s toothbrush. Simply awesome! And loved to learn about your All Shiny Charcoal Clean White Fluoride Toothpaste. The natural green bamboo aroma is quite unique for any toothpaste. However, never forget to visit a dentist for proper dental evaluation. It will help you to flaunt a dazzling smile for years to come. After all someone’s first impression on you is the smile they see.
