One Of My Biggest Insecurities

I’ve shared in the past about one of my biggest insecurities. It’s this white spot on my front tooth that came about while I had braces in middle school. I sucked at brushing my teeth with my braces on and my teeth suffered because of it. Ever since I’ve been obsessed with trying to whiten my teeth. Per my dentist’s instructions, the only way to make it less noticeable, is to whiten the rest of the tooth. 

Since I’m not very good at remembering to use those whitening trays, or strips, having a toothpaste that helps to lift stains is key. Although I have all of those trays and things things at home to whiten my teeth, I struggle to ever use them. The one thing I do always do every single day though, is brush my teeth. So why not update my everyday toothpaste with one that’s not only natural but can also help to whiten my teeth in just two weeks. You read that right folks!

Toms of Maine is a brand I’ve known about for years. They’ve been around for 47 years so they know a thing or too about keeping things natural (oh and no animal testing). Their toothpastes are also free of artificial colors, flavors, fragrances and preservatives. I try to keep an eye out for these things in the foods that I eat so it only makes sense to start applying that to the beauty products I use everyday.  This is their newest product, Luminous White. It helps to lift stains on your teeth the natural way while still fighting against cavities and keeping your breath fresh.

As someone who also drinks coffee every single day, I’m always making sure to counteract that with a toothpaste that helps to do the dirty work and get rid of stains. I’ve been using this toothpaste for a few weeks now and am loving it. I really never thought about investing in a natural toothpaste, but now don’t think I’ll ever go back to all those chemicals! My white stain will ALWAYS be there unfortunately, but this toothpaste is helping to make it less noticeable. Which is all I’ve ever wanted.

You can shop the new Toms of Maine Luminous White toothpaste at Whole Foods.
