After the recent “furore” over the way the contestants on ITV’s Love Island have been using their electric toothbrushes, the focus is on their beaming white smiles more now so than ever before. This popular programme is known for its beautiful location, and more importantly, the beautiful people that appear on the show. If you are a fan and want to learn how you too can become the proud owner of the perfect smile, read our guide to achieving a Love Island smile.
Straighten your teeth
The amount of talking that goes on at the Love Island villa has given viewers plenty of opportunity to notice that there isn’t a crooked tooth in sight. If this leaves you feeling envious, you will be happy to know that you can easily achieve straight teeth by using a treatment such as Invisalign. Using clear braces to realign your teeth, this treatment is popular as it is a fast-acting treatment for crooked teeth. The invisible braces are custom-made and are removable making them very convenient and discreet for those who may be self-conscious about wearing aligners.
Let go of lines
It’s difficult not to realise that all the contestants on the show are young, and as such are blessed with youthful complexions and wrinkle-free skin. However, if you are a more mature adult who has lines or wrinkles around your mouth you may want to consider Botox. Botulinum toxin injections are tested with each batch and are therefore safe to be directly into skin around the mouth, shrinking lines and temporarily eradicating wrinkles.
Brush and floss your teeth properly
The way many of the Love Islanders are using their electric toothbrushes has led viewers to believe that they are only accustomed to using manual toothbrushes. Brushing teeth helps protect them from decay and should be the starting point for anyone who wants gleaming teeth. When using an electric toothbrush or manual toothbrush you should hold the brush at a 45-degree angle. However, rather than brushing teeth back and forth as you would with a manual brush, the electric toothbrush should be guided across each tooth allowing the oscillating head to do the work.
Whiten your teeth
All the brushing in the world is not going to get rid of harsh stains on your teeth, Smoking, drinking coffee or red wine, and genetics can all play a part in teeth-staining. The most effective way to combat stains is to opt for a professional tooth-whitening treatment. The Enlighten teeth-whitening system is a popular contemporary treatment used by reputable dental professionals. This is the perfect option for patients that want a more natural lightening effect as it lightens the teeth without stripping the teeth of enamel and without the use of porcelain veneers.
As with all cosmetic procedures, patients should always be careful to use only accredited professionals with the necessary experience required to perform cosmetic dental procedures. Always ask for examples of previous work and discuss pricing prior to treatment.
