Are you tooth ready? The festive season is upon us, make sure you read these tips to help you smile big this Christmas.
We all know just how much food and drink is consumed over the Christmas period, so it's important to take care of your teeth! Whether you are already using Hismile or you are considering using Hismile, shiny white teeth are always in fashion. Here we share some secrets to help keep your pearlers in tip top condition over the festive season!
1. BRUSH YOUR TEETH BEFORE APPLICATION
You weren't told to brush for 2 minutes for no reason. By making sure your teeth a super clean before application, it allows the gels to work it's magic!
2. DRY TEETH BEFORE APPLYING GELS
Here is a handy tip! You can use a dry clean facecloth or fan your teeth to dry them before applying the Hismile gels and mouth tray. This enables better contact with your teeth for maximum results.
3. MOVE MOUTH TRAY OVER TEETH
When you move the Mouth Tray around during application, you are getting the best amount of gel coverage on your teeth.
4. PRESSURE IS GOOD!
Adding some pressure to the mouth tray while whitening is a great idea! This way all of your teeth get an even amount of exposure to the LED light.
5. FLOSSING IS SO UNDERRATED!
The question is why don't we floss enough? The benefits of flossing are outstanding, especially during a whitening routine. Flossing helps to remove plaque we may have missed during our brush and also eliminates any discolouration in between the teeth!
6. FOLLOW UP WITH A WHITENING PEN
By using the Hismile Whitening Pen after and in between application, your teeth will whiten on the go! Sometimes it may even help to use the pen in between the spaces of your teeth to encourage even results.

7. IT'S OK TO USE HISMILE FOR LONGER THAN 10 MINS
Some of our Hismiler's like to use the LED light and Mouth Tray for 15 minutes or so. As there aren't any harmful chemicals in our gel's it is completely safe to use longer than the recommended 10 minutes!
8. CONSISTENCY IS KEY
If you are new to Hismile, it's important to do the applications over consecutive days (with 6-9 applications) to get maximum results. If you commit to your routine then you will see results fast!
9. WHITEN WHILE YOU SLEEP
It is recommended to use Hismile before you go to bed as you won't be consuming any foods or beverages that may discolour your teeth and interrupt the whitening process. Just incorporate it into your evening routine and...Vualla!
10. DRINK COLOURED BEVERAGES THROUGH A STRAW
As adults we tend to form some not-so-great habits that affect our teeth such as, drinking coffee and wine! One of the BEST tips for white teeth is to drink coloured beverages through a straw to avoid it coming into contact with your teeth. Especially after you have whitened. You may not be able to drink everything through a straw but where you can, it sure will help!
11. CHEW YOUR WAY TO WHITE TEETH
Apples, broccoli, carrots, nuts and any other crunchy foods you can think of are GREAT for exfoliating, yes you heard right - exfoliating, your teeth! Who knew! These superfoods help to eliminate plaque which is one of the biggest causes for discoloured tooth enamel.
12. CHOSSING THE RIGHT SHADE OF LIPSTICK
ATT: Lipstick wearers - I am sure you are well aware that reds, nudes and purples are in this season so choosing the right shade to enhance your white teeth is important. Reds that tend toward orange make teeth appear yellow. A bold red can brighten your smile up to two shades! When choosing lipsticks that make teeth look whiter for darker complexions, try a burgundy for rich colour and good contrast to your smile.
