I do like a nice set of pearly white teeth and have used a whitening tooth paste for as long as I can remember although I think that I use them out of hope for whiter teeth rather than the actual results that they give.
There are now so many different whitening treatments available thanks to an overdose of pictures of celebs with their perfect smile and pearly white teeth. This has also seen a huge rise in cosmetic dentistry and while we can not all afford a new set of veneers Tom Cruise and Celine Dion are two of the rather extreme before and after cases for being in favour of veneers, Would they have had the same success with their own teeth? I would like to think that talent wins through but in image conscious Hollywood I fear not.
So veneers are not easily accessible for the masses but less evasive and less expensive treatments means that we can all have whiter if not perfectly straight teeth!
I have quite often seen the blank range in my local Sainsbury's when doing my shopping and like a magpie I am drawn to them ("Ohh shiny!") unfortunately my budget wont allow my inner magpie to purchase said sparkly box that has the promise of white teeth on it. I was surprised to see it on offer one day for just £6.50 reduced from the usual £9.00 and I just couldn't resist.
What It Claims -
The tooth paste claims to remove all stains including those caused by smoking, foods, coloured drinks and plaque deposits.
It also claims to restore the health and whiteness of your teeth.
The Product -
The Blanx range using an ingredient called Lichen which it claims is particularly effective against the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and discoloration.
Lichen was discovered in the artic where explorers discovered the people who lived there had brilliant white teeth and found that they were using the Lichen substance as a method to clean their teeth.
The tooth paste comes in the form of a solid plastic bottle that stands up on it's own, it has the Blanx brand written down the centre of the bottle. The bottle has a white plastic lid that when removes reveals the dispenser to release the product.
You also get a strip on the box to test the whiteness of your teeth before and after using the product and the the colours range from yellow , cream and then bright white . The scale is set from and I was very hopeful of reaching the top end of the white scale. My teeth are naturally quite white although I am rather fond of coffee which is one of the main ways to stain your teeth. I measured on the top half of the cream on the scale on the box.
Using The Product -
There is no special way to use the tooth paste just use it the same way as your usual paste.
When I dispensed the paste I noticed that the paste is bright white in colour and the consistency is slightly thicker than your average tooth paste. The paste is very also very smooth on the teeth, I have used some whitening products that have a slight grainy feel to them but this was not the case with the Blanx.
The taste was at best very subtly minted at worst quite bland, I didn't get that clean and fresh feeling in my mouth that I like but decided to carry on and give the paste the benefit of the doubt. Once I had rinsed my mouth I did the usual and moved my tongue around my mouth to feel how clean they were and I was pleasantly surprised to feel nothing on my teeth, I felt that all the plaque was gone and using a phrase I use with the girls, they were squeaky clean!
Although I knew that my teeth were clean I was convinced that my mouth wasn't fresh and actually did a breath into my hand to check like a teenage boy before a date! Thankfully my breath was fresh I just didn't have that strong minty freshness that I was used to but with a touch of mouth wash I was fine.
Can my husband pick me up and use me as a torch? -
Well, I have to say that I did notice a difference immediately, my teeth actually looked brighter and more of an all one colour so I could see that the paste had removed some stains that were on my teeth that my usual brand had not shifted. I have to be honest and say that I did move one shade on the scale on the box and this was after the first use of the product.
I have since used the toothpaste for a few months and have moved up two marks on the scale which I am happy with. My hubby did notice a difference and one night when the light bulb went in bathroom asked would I mind standing in there and grinning like a Cheshire cat while he got washed!
All in all I am really happy with the results that the toothpaste produced. My one criticism would be that you don't get that really fresh feeling in your mouth but as I always use a separate mouthwash this has not been a reason for me not to use it.
If you want a cleaner, whiter teeth with a non abrasive toothpaste that's kind to your teeth then its really worth giving it a go.
Obviously it goes without saying that the best way to stop your teeth getting stained is to do none of the following - Eat anything containing sugar, biscuits, cakes and sweets. Don't drink coffee, tea or anything with caffeine in. Or.............................Have a few of those things once in a while and smile anyway with your less than snow white teeth!
The Blanx range is available in most chemists and some supermarkets, look out for it when its on offer. The Blanx range also includes mouth wash, intensive whitening treatment and many more. More information on the range can be found at www.blanxuk.com
