There’s something about people who have a really nice smile and beautifully white teeth.
If that’s you, then I am envious.
I’ve never loved my teeth. I had braces when I was younger, and I try to take good care of them… but lots of coffee and red wine means they aren’t always so sparkly.
To me, teeth whitening has always seemed like something for fancy people who go to fancy clinics, or maybe even a bit of a chore squeezing gels into trays and awkwardly trying to keep them in your mouth.
Brush your teeth, floss (when you remember!) and go to the dentist occasionally and kind of... hope for the best.
But once silly season rolls around, and more social events roll in, it crosses my mind that having shiny white teeth would be a bit damn nice.
Then I found out about Oral-B’s new 3D White Whitening Emulsions Apply & Go Kit.
It promises to help you achieve 100 per cent whiter teeth in just seconds (versus their 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste), even when you're on the go: and I won't lie, I couldn't click on it fast enough.
The formula is dabbed on a wand and applied liberally on your teeth, absorbs quickly (and safely) for fast results, all without any messy feel or need to rinse off. Oral-B says the whole process takes only 1 minute, and it's enamel safe for multiple uses a day.
Ya kiddin'. Well, sign me the heck up. Is it really that mess-free and effective though? How can there be no need for rinsing or brushing afterwards?
To help investigate, we had 50 women in the Mamamia You Beauty Panel road test Oral-B’s 3D White Emulsions, and report straight back to us on what it was like (and what it actually did to their pearly whites).
Spoiler: 93 per cent said this product was easy to use, and 88 per cent confirmed this product helped to whiten their teeth on-the-go.
Here's exactly what they said.
