As a Diet Coke addict, my teeth bear the brunt of my excessive consumption. I'm on a diet, don't smoke and rarely drink alcohol; so if Diet Coke is my vice, then I'm not going to give it up as I could have chosen much worse. It does badly stain my teeth however, and I was really starting to notice it in photographs; especially if I was smiling in them alongside someone else.
I think I had probably tried every whitening toothpaste on the market before I tried the BlanX range. Trust me to leave the best 'til last! Oil pulling did work; but it wasn't a pleasant enough experience to be able to sustain for long. No other toothpaste actually made a noticeable difference either.
I didn't expect BlanX to work; but it has taken me completely by surprise- not only does it noticeably whiten my teeth on each use, but it has actually repaired the stain damage over time too; giving me a much cleaner and healthier looking base to maintain. I've been using three products from the BlanX range for about 6 weeks now- their Advance Whitening Toothpaste (£7.89), their Intensive Stain Removal (£6.30) and their Extrawhite Intensive Whitening Treatment (£11).
For the first three weeks, I used the stain removal toothpaste every morning and night alongside the whitening treatment. This allowed me to get rid of the stains, and continue with a maintenance regime. I now use the whitening toothpaste and whitening treatment in the morning, and the stain removal toothpaste at night. You use the treatment just like a toothpaste, except you only need about a quarter of a pea-sized amount as it foams greatly. I am really pleased with the results, and with the continued progress. I am never going to have pearly whites unless I get my teeth done professionally; but now they look clean, healthy and unstained.
I really wish I had tried BlanX sooner, as they are designed to tackle stains and discolourations from the likes of coffee and red wine by using Arctic Lichen and Bamboo Micro Powder- both natural whitening elements. They aren't abrasive and don't damage your teeth's enamel either. I have definitely found my winner!
You can pick up the BlanX range from Boots, Superdrug and major supermarkets. For more information, visit www.blanx.co.uk.
