We’ve seen a flurry of the Love Island contestants being paid to promote the latest must-have teeth whitening products, but in reality, do these things ever work? We’re more interested in those that do, so we’ve taken a look at the newest must-try teeth whitening products you need on your radar.
Curaprox charcoal gum
Charcoal has taken the teeth whitening industry by storm and it’s a great product for naturally white teeth. We shared our love previously for the Curaprox Black is White charcoal toothpaste, and now they’ve introduced the perfect product to whiten our teeth on the go.
The Black is White Activated Charcoal Whitening Chewing Gum is designed as a convenient approach to natural whitening incorporating the benefits of active carbon to help whiten and re-mineralise teeth for oral care on the go.
So, how do they work? The pieces of gum contain clinically proven ingredients like Hydroxylapatite, a mineral form of calcium and Xylitol to help prevent tooth decay. The activated carbon gently absorbs and removes stain particles that discolour teeth without wearing enamel away, resulting in a healthy, naturally white smile.
The pieces of gum are black, and despite what we expected, there’s no colour transfer into your mouth. They’re designed with a long-lasting lemon-mint flavour that tastes pleasant and sticks around for a while so you can really work the gum around your mouth.
They are more expensive than what you’d pay for a regular stick of gum, they’re £4.99 for 12 pieces, but of course, they come with the added benefit of cleaning your teeth and whitening them as well as freshening your breath.
These are great to keep in your handbag to freshen your breath in-between brushes and ideal to help keep stains at bay if you’re drinking coffee and tea through the day.
Beverly Hills Formula Professional White range
Beverly Hills Formula has been working on the groundbreaking new whitening formulation for over two years, and it’s currently only available in the UK. The new range includes Black Pearl whitening toothpaste, Pink Pearl Sensitive whitening toothpaste, Precious Pearl Enamel Remineralising Serum and Fresh Pearl mouthwash.
Black Pearl works by using Activated Charcoal combined with professional ingredient Phthalimido-Peroxy-Caproic Acid (PAP) to help remove surface and deep stains without harming the enamel and is safe for daily use.
Pink Pearl Sensitive contains Hydroxyapatite and Potassium Nitrate to provide rapid sensitivity action. Precious Pearl Enamel remineralising toothpaste also contains Hydroxyapatite, scientifically proven to form new protective layers, making teeth smoother and brighter by repairing micro-lesions and strengthening the enamel.
Fresh Pearl mouthwash contains chlorhexidine and xylitol to combat bad breath and neutralises the pH balance in the mouth to protect against acid attacks and plaque and keeps enamel strong to help prevent cavities. In addition, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate and Tetrapotassium Pyrophosphate helps restore the colour of your teeth enamel to a natural white colour.
Dr Martin Kinsella, dentist and doctor who owns Re-Enhance cosmetic clinics in the UK and Majorca, said: “Beverly Hills Formula offer of a range of products ideal for a variety of oral hygiene concerns including bad breath, teeth whitening and sensitivity. As a dual qualified dentist and doctor, I would recommend Beverly Hills Formula products to all my patients.”
Beverly Hills Formula is a well-known brand that you’ve probably already had on your bathroom shelf before, and these new formulas are definitely something to add to your shelf too.
They’re gentle on your teeth and make a real difference to the colour of your teeth too. There’s little effort required on your part too, just simply swap out your normal toothpaste and mouth wash for these and see the difference it can make to your smile.
Chris Dodd, CEO of Beverly Hills Formula which has been established for over 20 years, said: “We are very excited about our new Professional White range which has taken over two years in development, but it’s been well worth it because we believe we’ve created the best teeth whitening products which aren’t harmful to enamel and are aimed at consumers who expect superior results from a whitening toothpaste.”
