It’s time to upgrade your smile

Three expert tips for a shining white smile this summer

The sun’s out – and it’s showing up everything that the winter gloom could hide, from dusty carpets to less-than-bright teeth. Time to call on celebrity dentist Dr Uchenna Ukoye for advice.


When summer comes, it’s natural to want to look your best as your social life ramps up and your holidays loom. But the bright sunshine can also show up any flaws you might want to hide, with dull teeth top of that list. So how can you make the most of your smile without spending a fortune on professional whitening treatments?

1. Enhance your pearly whites

When enamel erodes and tartar builds up, our teeth lose that shine that sparkles in the light. Celebrity dentist Dr Uchenna Ukoye suggests swapping to a shine-enhancing and whitening paste like Oral-B 3D White Luxe Pearl Shine. It not only removes up to 90% of surface stains, but it leaves your teeth shiny after brushing, to illuminate your smile and enhance your tan this summer.

2. Upgrade your brush

It’s been proven again and again that switching to an electric toothbrush will remove more stains than manual brushing, says Dr Uchenna. So why not invest in an Oral-B Pro 600 White & Clean ? A good tip is to brush one tooth at a time for a total of two minutes – after one week teeth will look brighter and whiter.

3. Illuminate your skin

A healthy summer glow and a radiant complexion is one of the best complements to a dazzling smile – and will make your teeth look even whiter. For a natural-looking tan, try swapping out your normal moisturiser for Olay Complete Everyday Sunshine Moisturiser Cream, which has a subtle sunless tanner in light or deep formulations, as well as SPF15 sun protection, nourishing vitamins and 24-hour moisturisation.

I agree about using a good toothpaste that keeps teeth and gums looking and feeling healthy .plus there are electric toothbrushes come with added bonus of multi heads or even blue tooth brushing guides via an app on your phone or tablet . So you have your own brushing coach .
