You may or may not know that at the age of 22 I underwent orthodontic treatment due to hating my un-straight teeth. A smile says a lot, and smiling was the last thing I ever wanted to do. Unfortunately due to a phobia of needles I turned down the opportunity to have a brace when I was younger (having four teeth pulled wasn’t high on my list of priorities), but it should have been. Since then, I managed to pluck up the courage and had a ceramic brace for 2 years.
Back in April I had my brace removed and can honestly say I’m ecstatically happy with the result – I finally have my straight smile. I knew once I got my brace off that I wanted to improve my smile even further and have them whitened. I found it notoriously hard to find an obvious place to have my teeth whitened with my dentist offering a £200 do-it-yourself option, nothing else. On a random trip around Tesco (yes, Tesco!) however, a beauty salon within the store offered a Pearly Express treatment, claiming to be used by X-Factor stars and celebrities such as One Direction and Josie Gibson. It offered one express treatment (20 minutes) at £50, or two for £85. I figured I wanted to give it a shot and below are my results after two treatments; I increased by 12 shades and there was an obvious difference to begin with. The results are slowly fading as I refuse to give up wine and the odd coffee, so I plan to get them done again in a few months time. Quick, convenient, and some great results – I hope you’ll agree!
