For as long as I can remember, I’ve been incredibly self conscious about my smile. It was wonky, awkward, I had teeth that stuck out a little more to the side than I would’ve liked… You name it, I had a problem with everything. As I got older, more options became available to me. I had my teeth filed down from their sharp triangular point to a smoother, flatter surface and was all the more happier for it. I thought I was happy, until I had a closer inspection. Now that the sharp edges weren’t as noticeable as they once were, my mind focused in on the discolouration.
Don’t get me wrong, my teeth were never anywhere near being pearly white. I still brushed my teeth religiously morning and night, but excessive coffee drinking, the occasional cigarette [in my teen years] and a love of red wine meant that my efforts were made in vain.
Teeth whitening has become increasingly popular for people like me, who want a whiter and brighter smile. However, not all of us can fork out the hefty price tag it comes with. I’m always looking for ways to do beauty on a budget. That’s when I discovered Just Smile London…
Just Smile London are the new kid on the block when it comes to teeth whitening. Their activated charcoal works in just one week, reducing stains and whitening your teeth up to 5-6 shades. When I first heard of this product I was really skeptical. Companies often promise fantastic results which rarely deliver.
Obviously you’re not going to achieve the cosmetic finish that you would with a professional service. That being said, you can’t deny that this stuff works! Although a little messy to use the results are definitely noticeable within one week. It won’t lift 5-6 shades in one week, but could with prolonged use.
So how does it work?
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals within it’s pores. So in this case, the charcoal would bind to the tartar on your teeth and remove it, leaving the surface whiter in appearance. It goes without saying that tartar builds up consistently on your teeth due to everyday life activities such as eating, drinking, and [for some] smoking – hence why it’s recommended you use the product regularly.
On the website it’s recommended that you brush using the charcoal everyday for the first week of use, and then 3-4 days continued use every week after. Since this is an all natural product, the results depend on whether or not you continue to use it regularly.
Having a whiter smile has made me feel happier within myself.
I never push myself to be perfect because that’s an unhealthy mindset to have; I know I’m never going to look like an Instagram model. That would be unrealistic. However that’s not to say I don’t like to look a certain way, we all hold ourselves to our own personal standards.
Just Smile London have given me the confidence boost I needed to smile properly again. I’m incredibly happy to have found something that works so well for me, and that isn’t full of harsh chemicals.
