Celebrating #WorldSmileDay with .@Diamondwhites1 Teeth Whitening Review On A Lunch Break

It's World Smile Day today, so I wanted to help you celebrate it with a smile and healthy, gleaming teeth! 

On a recent lunch break, I experienced my first ever Teeth Whitening Treatment, courtesy of the ever brilliant, leading teeth whitening product brand, Diamond Whites which I was luckily enough to test run myself, with fantastic results!

After less than 45mins, I left the Diamond Whites event with beamingly white teeth which I was more than happy to show off on social media, including Snapchat, hence the screenshot images in this post.

Shortly after my blinding treatment, I decided to look up the after care of how to keep teeth brilliantly white. Here's the catch!

To make your new smile last as long as possible, you must take care of your teeth following your treatment, to ensure you provide the best environment for it to flourish.

Here's how, in 7 not so easy steps!

 1. Follow a strict ‘white diet’ following your laser teeth whitening treatment in order to avoid any potential for staining or discolouration of your teeth. As the stain removal procedure opens the pores of your teeth, it is recommended that you follow the white diet for 48 hours immediately after your treatment in order to give your teeth time to readjust.

The white diet means you can only consume white or clear food stuffs to minimise any possibility of staining. You should also avoid items with a high acidity level such as oranges and lemons, very hot or very cold food, dairy products (other than skimmed milk), food containing wheat (bread and pasta) and anything that you might think would leave a stain on clothing such as bolognese.

Food and drink you can have:

Meat/fish: turkey, chicken, white fish, Quorn
Fruit/vegetables: bananas, cauliflower, white beans, potatoes but not chips
Carbs: white pitta bread, white rice
Cereal: rice crispies
Sweets: white chewing gum
Dairy: skimmed milk
Soft drinks: still or sparkling water, tonic water, lemonade
Alcohol: vodka, gin, white wine, white rum

2. Obvious enough, especially after reading the first step above, DO NOT SMOKE!

3. Do not brush your teeth for a few hours after your treatment, if you have a late appointment, brush them the following day.
Only brush your teeth with white toothpaste, do not use coloured toothpaste.
Do not use mouthwash or smoke for at least 24hrs

4. Brush your teeth regularly and effectively. Maintaining your bright smile will require more than just the compulsory teeth clean in the morning and the evening. Try to make a habit of also brushing your teeth after meals to remove anything that might cause a stain – think of it as if you spill something on your clothes – the quicker you treat it, the less likely it is to leave a mark.

5. Use a straw. It’s such a simple change you will be wondering why you haven’t done it sooner. Using a straw when drinking fizzy drinks helps the liquid bypass the front of your teeth altogether, avoiding the potential for staining.

6. Floss. Flossing used to be something you only saw on American TV programmes but it is something now we should all get used to doing after meals and before bed. Flossing reaches the areas your toothbrush can not and removes stray bits of food and build ups of stubborn tartar from between your teeth which can add to discolouration.

7. Use a whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpastes contain a low concentration bleaching agent which helps break down the stains on your teeth and prolong the effects of your whitening treatment.

8. Visit your dentist regularly. You should go for check ups with your dentist every six months to ensure your teeth are maintained and that you are following a good oral hygiene regime. Please speak to your dentist if you need further advice on maintaining your new bright smile.

Diamond Whites also have some great products for at-home teeth whitening -www.diamondwhites.co.uk.  

Their products range from their best selling ‘At Home Teeth Whitening Kit’ to their 100% natural charcoal teeth whitening range.

Have you had your teeth whitened recently or interested in undergoing the treatment?
