Picture this. My five-year-old, Tom, asks me “If I don’t brush my teeth will they end up being all yellow like yours?” Delightful I know, especially as this question came an hour before an eagerly anticipated dinner with friends that I haven’t seen in over ten years and had made an extra effort to look my best. Lets just say, Tom knows how to pack a punch.
So after staring at my yellow teeth in the bathroom mirror, I fished out a bottle of whitening product from the back of the cupboard and fervently pasted it onto my teeth.
Whilst the hydrogen peroxide worked its magic, I scrambled through my collection of lippies to find one that would help make my teeth look whiter. Now you would think that after years of being educated in make-up and writing endless features on cosmetic shades and camouflage, I would remember what colour lipstick is best to magically make my teeth appear whiter and brighter. But no. My mind was in disarray after those inquisitive little words that had spilled out of Tom’s mouth.
With minutes to spare, my teeth no whiter - just a lighter shade of yellow - I had no option but to slap on my usual lipstick and pray that the restaurant had dim lighting.
Thankfully, no one noticed my teeth - but it would be foolish to let it end there. Over the last few weeks I’ve been acting like a mad woman on a teeth-whitening mission. I can't look in the mirror without seeing stained, yellow teeth staring back at me. A shocking sight! So in an attempt to reclaim a whiter smile, I’ve stocked up on a sure-to-do-the-trick teeth whitener.
With the help of GoSmile Whiten I’m confident my teeth will be restored to their pearly best in no time. And in the meantime, just to be sure, I've even given up coffee, red wine, chocolate…
Oh, and I’m wearing my blue-based magenta lippy - yes I remembered!
Have you tried any teeth whitening tricks?
