Why You Should Be Using Mouthwash and What to Look For

I’m not sure if this is exclusively a New York anxiety thing, but I had to get a gum graft done and a bunch of my friends have had to have the same procedure. This isn’t something people usually need until they’re 50-60 I’m told and occurs when your gums start to wear down. In … Continue reading Why You Should Be Using Mouthwash and What to Look For

Theodent Toothpaste: Toothpaste Snob

I’ve been a huge fan of Marvis toothpaste for years. I even brought back a bunch from when I was in Europe (I’m a bit of toothpaste snob). But now I’ve found something even better! Theodent is the latest in toothpaste innovation. Actually, there haven’t been any advancements in toothpaste since it was invented 100 … Continue reading Theodent Toothpaste: Toothpaste Snob

GLO Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device

A decade of diligently using my Sonicare toothbrush means that my teeth are pretty white and I don’t have any cavities. I do however drink coffee in the morning and tea throughout the day so they could definitely be a little whiter. After meeting the wife and co-founder of the aesthetic dentist that came up … Continue reading GLO Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device

Fluoride: Friend or Foe?

I don’t like mint which makes finding a toothpaste my taste-buds are OK with a bit of a challenge. Most toothpastes that aren’t mint flavored are either designed with kids in mind (ie they have Sesame Street and the likes on the packaging) or they’re natural toothpastes formulated without fluoride. A bunch of popular natural … Continue reading Fluoride: Friend or Foe?

My best friend got me these little guys for Christmas last year. When I realized what they were, I felt the same way I felt the first time my mom showed me what mascara was. A life changing experience. Wine Wipes are a combination of baking soda, salt, hydroperoxide, calcium, glycerin and orange blossom and … Continue reading Wine Wipes: Wine-O’s Rejoice!

Teeth Bonding: Gap, be gone!

So I was born with a gap in my two front teeth. Not just any gap. A large gaping whole that my best friend used to ask me if I could fit a straw in-between to drink things…Which I could. So in 8th grade after much begging and pleading my case to my parents as … Continue reading Teeth Bonding: Gap, be gone!

Violight Toothbrush Sanitizers

The Sonicare toothbrush I used to use had a built-in toothbrush sanitizer. Unfortunately it stopped working properly and now I can’t find the same model at my local Bed, Bath & Beyond! I’ve been seeing pop-ups for Violight all over the place, so I figured it was as good a time as any to give … Continue reading Violight Toothbrush Sanitizers

Luster 1 Hour White, Tooth Whitening Light System

I’ve been drinking way, way, WAY too much coffee lately. Not only am I now a total insomniac, but I have serious heart palpitations at night and my teeth have taken on a slight yellow tint. That said caffeine addiction is no easy thing to kick! I’ve used White Stripes before and had great results, … Continue reading Luster 1 Hour White, Tooth Whitening Light System
