Tips For Teeth Whitening with Janina Ultra White

Teeth staining and discoloured teeth can build up over time, but with a few simple changes you can make a big difference tp the colour of your teeth!

Janina Ultra White is an award-winning and clinically proven teeth whitening brand with a range of low abrasive toothpastes and treatments. From Activated Charcoal Toothpaste to Pre-Filled Trays, teeth are visibly whiter and healthier with Janina Ultra White

– Choose which toothpaste is for you. There’s a variety of toothpastes on the market and it’s important you choose which one is right for you! Try the Maxiwhite Super Strength Toothpaste for fast whitening results or the award-winning Activated Charcoal Toothpaste for fresh breath and a whiter smile.

– Avoid drinking/eating teeth-staining foods and drinks. Coffee, tea, red wine, citrus fruits and berries are the main culprits so reduce your intake of these foods and drinks to see an improvement in your teeth.

– Opt for the right toothbrush. In our Choosing The Right Toothbrush blog post, we discussed the best toothbrushes for your teeth and when you should replace them.

– Don’t rinse your mouth after using a teeth whitening product. After using a Janina Ultra White product, we recommend you don’t rinse your mouth with water as this will affect the whitening results!

– Try chewing gum to remove debris and help to strengthen your teeth. Chewing gum also helps to prevent plaque build-up and neutralises the bacteria in your mouth.

– Drink water with every meal to wash away bacteria and residue left by food. This especially important for keeping a healthy mouth!

– Red lipstick with a blue undertone always helps to whiten teeth! It’s a great teeth whitening-fix to enhance your smile.

– Always floss to dislodge food and debris stuck in your teeth and prevent yellow plaque build up. We recommend flossing before brushing your teeth as this will help the toothbrush to access hard to reach places.

Choosing The Right Toothbrush

You may think that any old toothbrush will do, but choosing the right toothbrush will greatly affect how clean your teeth are and stay that way!

Here at Janina Ultra White we take the health of your teeth and mouth seriously, ensuring all of our products have optimum fluoride levels to healthy and strong teeth. So what factors should you consider before buying your toothbrush?

1. Bristles
For the majority, soft bristles will be the most comfortable for your teeth in comparison to medium or hard bristles, which can actually cause damage to your gums and protective tooth enamel. Softer bristles have been proven to remove plaque easier than hard bristles!

2. Small head
We’d recommend opting for a toothbrush with a small head as this will allow you to reach all areas of your mouth easily.

3. Powered vs Manual Toothbrush
A powered toothbrush is preferred by many as it can do a better job of cleaning teeth, particularly for those who have difficulty brushing or who have limited manual dexterity. Many powered toothbrushes also come with a timer to help you stick to the recommended time and will warn you when you are brushing too hard – which can damage your gums and tooth enamel.

Another must-know answer is when should I replace my toothbrush? The ideal time is every three months or whenever your toothbrush is starting to look worn. Remember that bacteria can spread in the bristles of your toothbrush too!

Why Teeth Whitening Is So Popular

Over the years whiter teeth have become more and more popular, the term a ‘Hollywood’ smile has generated from celebrities flashing their white smiles on the red carpet and nowadays gaining whiter teeth at home is so easy too.

The popularity of teeth whitening began in the 1980s, when dentists began offering clients a service where they used hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth – which had previously been used as an oral antiseptic gel to treat the gums!

Soon the mass market picked up on this quick-result teeth whitening ingredient and people loved the instant results they were getting from the comfort of their own home. In just 15 minutes you will see stains lifted for whiter teeth, which you can either visit the dentist for or opt for the low cost option of doing it at home.

So what’s the future of teeth whitening? There’s no sign that the popularity of teeth whitening is going to stop growing. It’ll soon be the norm to see a dazzling white smile that’s as easy to achieve as with Janina Ultra White. All of our toothpastes are low abrasive and hydrogen peroxide free with a special whitening patented Bromaine Complex (a combination of pineapple and papaya enzymes) to lift stains and whiten teeth.

Tips For Keeping Your Oral Care In Check

It can be easy to skip over brushing your teeth one day or avoid that dentist trip, but you’ll be doing your teeth more harm than good. Did you know that one in four adults admit they don’t brush their teeth twice a day? Including a third of men! Poor oral health care doesn’t just affect your teeth, but also your smile, self-confidence and success.

Try our tips for keeping your oral care in check:

– Don’t neglect your tongue!
Try brushing your tongue when brushing your teeth, this will help to control the bacteria in your mouth.

– Go for regular check ups
You dentist will nag you otherwise and like they say, prevention is better than cure.

– Choose the right toothbrush and toothpaste
How clean and healthy your teeth are really depends on what tools you use. We’d recommend an electric powered toothbrush as this reaches small gaps well and a Janina Ultra White Toothpaste, which contains the optimum fluoride levels for teeth health and a low abrasive teeth whitening formula.

– Set reminders
If you find it tricky to keep up with brushing your teeth twice a day, set a reminder or alarm in your phone.

– Avoid sugary and teeth-staining foods and drinks
There’s some drinks which cause surface staining to your teeth as well as dental decay, we’ve summed up the main culprits in our Foods To Avoid For Whiter Teeth blog post.

What Causes Discoloured Teeth?

Teeth become discoloured over time if you’re prone to one of the below habits, but with brushing your teeth twice daily and regularly visiting the dentist your teeth will be white and healthy in no time. The most common tooth discolouration is from Extrinsic, when the outer layer of the tooth enamel is stained.

Foods and drinks which stain the extrinsic layer of teeth:
– Coffee
– Tea
– Fizzy drinks
– Citrus and acid foods
– Blueberries, Blackberries and Pomegranates
– Red Wine
– Soy sauce
– Tomato sauce
– Curry

All of these foods and drinks are common culprits for the discolouration of teeth. You can still enjoy a cup of tea or pasta with tomato sauce, but try rinsing your mouth with water afterwards to help prevent stains. Plus regular visits to the dentist and hygienist will keep teeth stains away!

We’d also recommend picking up a low-abrasive teeth whitening toothpaste, like Janina Ultra White. They’re ideal for using as your normal toothpaste each day as they contain the optimum fluoride levels, as well as a Bromaine Complex of fruit enzymes to whiten teeth without the harsh abrasives.
