Meet the Expert - Dr Uchenna Okoye, Oral-B Smile Director

Cosmetic dentist, Dr Uchenna Okoye gives her top three dental advice tips for a gorgeous smile.

For me, your smile is an integral part of your overall look.  Taking care of your teeth should be a fundamental part of your daily beauty routine rather than a chore.” Says Dr Uchenna Okoye

Dr Uchenna’s Top 3 Quick-Fire Tips:

  1. DO THE WHITE T-SHIRT TEST: Anything that will stain a white shirt will stain your teeth.  So avoid dark foods. When drinking sodas use a straw (good to protect teeth from harmful acids) and rinse with water straight after to neutralise the effect. To further prevent staining, I recommend the new Oral-B 3D White Toothpaste, RRP £3.99, this gentle and very effective whitening toothpaste will make your teeth a natural white. 
  2. GO ELECTRIC: Who doesn’t love a yummy cocktail and sugary treat once in a while? But, unfortunately, the constant swishing of these foods and drinks around your mouth can cause plaque on teeth to build-up. Using an electric toothbrush, like the Oral-B TriZone RRP from £49.95-£199.99, is the most effective method for bacteria and plaque removal , so make sure you don’t get caught without one!
  3. FLOSS FOR GLOSS: I’d always recommend taking dental floss  with you wherever you go – it’s small and compact so it won’t take up much room in your bag.  It’s an essential quick fix tool and flossing is one of the secrets to gleaming teeth.

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
