Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat…first impressions today are largely made online, where selfies, likes and favourites reign supreme. So it’s no wonder you want to “put your best face forward” during the party season – hair done, flawless make-up, and of course, a dazzling smile.
However, even if you brush and floss regularly, it can still feel impossible to achieve teeth as white as the photo app filters can make them – especially with tea, coffee and red wine leaving their mark.
But what if you could get a white, bright, #nofilter smile without having to compromise on the food, drink and lifestyle you love? Simply try our top tips for your perfect close-up…
1. Go for lipsticks with cool undertones
Lipsticks with pink, red or bluish undertones cancel out the yellow tones in your teeth to make your smile whiter, while warm, orangey tones do the opposite. And sure, although this doesn’t actually make your teeth whiter, it’s a handy little trick…whatever works, right?
2. Fake it ’til you make it
A golden tan sets off white teeth beautifully, but if your complexion is more milk than honey (it is winter, after all!), lightly dust your face with a little taupe-toned bronzer. This can make your teeth appear an entire shade brighter. Although it’s important you pick the right shade – if you go too orange your teeth will start to take on some of that tangerine tint – and nobody wants that!
3. Get whiter teeth in just two steps
Just as a good skincare routine would consist of at least two steps – clean and protect – your smile can benefit from a similar approach.
If you combine the power of Oral-B 3D White Luxe Perfection Toothpaste or Oral-B 3D White Luxe Glamorous White with the protection of Oral-B 3D White Luxe Whitening Accelerator you will soon have a whiter, brighter smile.
Simply follow this two-step system morning and night…
Step 1: Start by brushing with Oral-B 3D White Luxe Perfection Toothpaste or Oral-B 3D White Luxe Glamorous White Toothpaste. Both have an enamel-safe formula that helps dissolve surface stains and protects against new ones. The pastes remove up to 100% of stains in just three days – so you can be confident your teeth are picture perfect.
Step 2: Next, brush with the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Whitening Accelerator, which protects your teeth from future stains for up to 24 hours – similarly to how an SPF moisturiser protects your skin from UV rays – so your smile stays whiter and brighter for longer.
Bonus tip: You can take your dazzling smile one step further by switching your regular electric toothbrush heads for Oral-B 3D White Toothbrush Heads Inspired by dental tools, the head is designed to clean tooth-by-tooth, making it ideal for advanced cleaning and whitening. The specialised brush sweeps away plaque while the polishing cup whitens teeth by removing surface stains from day one!
Try these tips and the Oral-B 3D White two-step system, and you will soon have a bright, white, #nofilter smile that’s always selfie ready.
