The first thing I always notice about someone is their smile.
How bright, genuine and wide it is. You can tell a lot about a person through their smile and the way they carry themselves! I believe a person who doesn’t hesitate to smile widely is a confident, happy and outgoing individual. If they cover their mouth every time they laugh, it might be a subtle hint that they’re self conscious about the state of their teeth or the way their smile looks.
It doesn’t matter if your teeth aren’t perfectly straight or aligned, but I do find it important that they’re kept as white as possible and squeaky clean at all times. I think the best looking smiles are the sincere ones from the heart, because when someone means a smile, you can totally tell! I am ashamed to admit that I never had proper dental hygiene when I was younger, but the older I got the more I realized how important it is to keep my teeth healthy and clean because it makes a big lasting first impression. Flossing daily and going for regular teeth scaling became a part of my lifestyle.
Adding on to my bi-yearly teeth whitening ritual, I need to upkeep the color of my teeth at home with everyday brushing, and the new Colgate Optic White Plus Shine does a great job at that!
Colgate Optic White Plus Shine is the latest whitening toothpaste featuring a newly upgraded formula with ‘Micro-Crystal Particles’ that gently polishes your teeth, giving you a brighter and more dazzling smile after a week’s usage!
Of course, individual results may vary, but my personal stance is that the Colgate Optic White Plus Shine has done a great job at keeping my pearly whites noticeably shinier and brighter after using it for the past few weeks!
It has a refreshing minty taste that isn’t overly powerful or strong, leaveing me with nice smelling breath afterwards.
I haven’t always had nice teeth. For the longest time, my teeth were stained very yellow no thanks to improper brushing practices for many years, but after continuous usage of whitening toothpastes and dental treatments, my condition has improved leaps and bounds. As someone who takes a lot of photos out of personal interest and work-related reasons, the color of my teeth is very apparent.
Despite having a pretty straight set of teeth, I would tend to smile with my lips closed because I didn’t want people to notice the color difference between myself and the person standing next to me. Almost everyone I stood next to made my teeth even yellower, and I felt terrible about myself. There’s nothing worse than feeling ashamed of your own smile. I’ve tried so hard in the past few years to achieve a smile I can be proud of, and you won’t believe the confidence it now brings me to know that I can flash my teeth without being self conscious at all!
In fact, smiling at people is one of my favorite things to do. I want to be one of those people that others remember by their smile! It’s one of the most underrated features of a person. People always talk about a person’s physique / figure / eyes / hair / style, but not enough people emphasize on the importance of a good smile.
So brush, brush and brush away!
