The countdown is on! Not long until our wedding day! My overall beauty routine that I am sticking to in preparations for our wedding is based on all natural/organic products and holistic beauty therapies. I do try my best to stay clear of all potentially harmful chemicals in my beauty products. The one exemption to the rule was my teeth whitening treatment. My teeth weren't dark to start of with but I do enjoy my daily morning coffee and just wanted to find a simple way to brighten my teeth at home without fuzz. While I use only organic toothpaste and mouthwash, I have never been able to find a natural whitening treatment. I prefer to stay away from any homemade DIY treatments when it comes to my teeth. I simply don't trust that these are safe. Many tips that I saw circulating online, just seem too abrasive or too acidic and I don't recommend experimenting too much.
An easy way to lighten your teeth is probably something that many of you are looking for, so I thought I share my experience with Opalescense Go. Opalescence Go is an at home whitening treatment available in different strengths. Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity. Fluoride has been shown to help reduce cavities and strengthen enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth. It's not any more natural, organic or ethical than any other teeth whitening treatment but it is recommended by and available at dentists. Actually, it is only available at professional dentists! I found it definitely very gentle and super easy to use. I didn't have any sensitivities and the trays fit well on my teeth, so there was so leaking of the bleaching agent onto my gums. They also have very pleasant mint flavour. The actual trays a are clear and very flexible, so they will mold around your teeth very easily. I popped mine in while sitting at the desk doing my emails and it was super convenient.
There is a video on YouTube that shows how to use the trays. I thought I better safe you from looking at potentially gross close up pictures/selfies of my mouth! I happily post some simley photos of my wedding to show you the bright teeth in a less offensive way. I don't know about you, but I am not a fan of ugly before and after pictures... I leave this to the real pro's, so if you are keen on close up's visit the Opalescence website.
I tried a package and saw a great difference after the treatment, I will now get another one to use just leading up to the wedding.
While this wasn't an all natural alternative, I hope you enjoyed the post and I definitely recommend this to all brides to be.
