Who doesn’t want whiter teeth, right? I for one as a dedicated coffee and tea drinker have stained teeth. I use sensitive toothpaste rather than whitening so I give my teeth an occasional whiten with a kit – it makes a big difference although I don’t do it that regularly.
So the Listerine Advanced White mouthwash is interesting – the idea that you can whiten your teeth or maintain them daily without too much bother makes me happy!
They say that the Listerine has:
- Powerful essential oils penetrate and reduce plaque bacteria to clean the tooth surface
- Non abrasive whitening technology lifts stains attached to the tooth
- A protective sheild helps to prevent new stains forming on the tooth surface
I have used this for more than 2 weeks now – I have to say I generally do not use mouthwash with Alcohol (it can dry your mouth out) and I prefer ones like Therabreath or good old Dentyl. However I stuck with it….
I think this mouthwash does a decent job of whitening or brightening the appearance of teeth. It doesn’t whiten alone – as if swishing some liquid in your mouth for a few minutes can do that – but it did seem to help keep things brighter along with through brushing. It can’t hurt I guess, if you are in to keeping your teeth nice and white but don’t reply on it to whiten your teeth alone.
Also in partnership with Listerine, Wild About Beauty’s co-owner, Louise picked 3 shades that make your teeth look whiter – I have Caroline which is a soft pink.
I think this colour does make the teeth look whiter! see below for reference. The other recommended shades are Abby (Fuchsia Pink) and Ella (Rich Berry).
The mouthwash is currently – 500ml is £2.74.
