Your smile is the most natural accessory you own, so why would you not want to take care of it?
For me this realization came back in college when I really wanted to get braces, but I just couldn't afford them. So the next best thing was to make sure my teeth are pearly white. I tried a few different whitening strip kits, and spent I don't know how much money on them.
Well, a side affect I didn't know could happen from using it was sensitive teeth. When I went to my dentist back then he told me that whitening kits include peroxide and some people can be sensitive to that, i.e. ME!..... After that Aha piece of information I stopped using the kits and gave up on trying to get those celebrity pearly whites.
I felt defeated because I didn't I just wanted to whiten my smile, I didn't think that was asking much. I tried searching for other products, but didn't find what I was looking for. Or if I did, the reviews were not great... So back to using just the Crest Whitening Toothpaste that was loaded with so much junk.
Fast forward 2 years, and I noticed my friend Kristen shared her results from her new fav. toothpaste in a social post. Her smile changed in just a few weeks, she had that pearly white that I wanted too.
I had a feeling she was either going to the dentist to get those pearls to that color or she was using a kit. But I still reached out because I was curious. Well, come to find out she wasn't using strips or professional whitening - it was her TOOTHPASTE!
In that moment I got all excited and said to her "There's no way you are just using toothpaste." But she sure was! At first I was hesitant to try this awesome toothpaste as I was just pregnant with my first child and I was screening every product I put in my body. So I told her about my hesitation.
Well ya'll, I don't know why I would even say I was hesitant to her, because she was pregnant with her first child as well. And I know she was just like me in being cautious about what products she uses. She said she looked into it, the product is dentist approved and a bonus it doesn't include peroxide! Hello, this product is what I have been looking for.
I went ahead and order some and no joke, it was just 2 days of use 2x per day and I was seeing a change and on top of that my teeth were not sensitive.
I was SOLD!
Fast forward again 12 months (maybe longer) and I had an infant in my arms and totally forgot about my magic toothpaste as I got caught in new mom life + going back to work full time.
Time passed and we got back into buying or old toothpaste because of convenience.
Then I found out I was expecting my second child and I got on the train of the hippy insanely clean all natural ingredient toothpaste. I wanted to love it so much, but with the yuck taste, the not so fresh breathe it left me and the no pearly white teeth I was starting to steer away from it. When I was starting to run out of my hippy natural toothpaste my friend Kristen reached back out and said she was doing a bulk order of that magic toothpaste I use to love and asked if I wanted some. I wanted to say yes, but I am also a procrastinator when it comes to buying things online and I missed the window to order some with her.
Well the next day (no joke, it really was the next day) I had my regular teeth cleaning dentist appointment. I mentioned the toothpaste and she said she has patients that use it and she said its a good product.
OK, I took this as a sign. If Kristen mentioned it to me and then the next day I brought it up to the doctor it had to be a sign for me to get it.
What did I do? I called Kristen and said I need this! She said she had a few tubes and sent it my way! (Insert happy dance.)
I got it a few days later and ya'll just like the first time I used it 3 years ago, I saw a change in 2 days!! Then a week later I noticed my husband tossed his Colgate toothpaste. I asked him if he was out and he said "No, I just saw your toothpaste on the counter and remembered how well it worked." (Insert another happy dance.)
Ok, so with that LONGGGGG story of why I love this stuff I feel like I need to quickly summarize why its become my favorite:
No Bleach/ harsh chemicals (why would I want this in my mouth? Love this.)
Not damaging to enamel (no one wants to wear down that enamel)
Great at cleaning off those coffee/ red wine stains! (I don't want proof on my smile of my drink consumption)
Safe during pregnancy (safe for mama + safe for baby, yes please!)
Safe for kids (𝚖𝚒𝚗𝚎 𝚕𝚘𝚟𝚎 𝚒𝚝)
