"The lower third of your face is the most important anti-ageing tool", says Dr Uchenna Okoye, Oral B's smile director and expert dentist.?? "If teeth are whiter, you instantly appear younger. We invest in cleansers and moisturisers for our skin but we don't always look after our smile so well. Using the right dental products is like having a deep facial then using creams to keep skin healthy."
While professional whitening is a guaranteed way to knock out staining and bring your teeth back to their sparkling best, if that's not an option there are other ways to go about it. There are plenty of DIY whitening kits around that can be very effective at lifting your teeth by a few shades. Simple-to-use at-home teeth whitening trays and bleaching products are becoming more sophisticated all the time so you can save time and money, and still get great teeth-whitening results from the comfort of your own home. ??
As well as specific dental products, we've found a few easy tweaks you can make to your lifestyle to see impressive results, too. Sometimes, simply changing your diet or adding an everyday product into your beauty regime can make all the difference to your smile. ??
