Smile and the world smiles with you

Teeth have been a major preoccupation for me of late because I have had to have root canal work. My dentist is wonderful and charming but it still cost the price of a mini break and wasn't so fun. I am very fastidious about tooth brushing and use the products the dentist recommends but I also wanted to share a couple of dental products that are lovely for your shelf and which I use sometimes to give me a little boost.




This yellow sunny toothpaste is from a Portuguese company called Couto and can be found (like most pretty things) at Anthropologie.



For perfume lovers and those who like flower food like me there is Marvis jasmin mint toothpaste from Niven and Joshua (and in Liberty and more). Other fabulous flavours by Marvis include cinnamon, amerelli licorice and ginger- I have the jasmine and my teeth feel great afterwards (though I used Colgate mixed with it if I'm honest).



Finally there is rose mouthwash from beautiful Floris on Jermyn street (or online) clearly this could have been made for me and it's rather lovely, if you like turkish delight etc. Think about it, if you like kissing someone after they've eaten a strawberry or a cherry then why not with a rosy taste.

what a gorgeous post - I'd adore some rose mouthwash, how elegant and how infinitely lovelier than listerine. I'm not absolutely sure about jasmine toothpaste, though... beautiful packaging notwithstanding.
HATE root canal. And By God dentistry costs an arm and a leg, I can quite see why people used to have them all taken out and replaced by false ones - you'd save thousands if you had it done early enough ;)

What nice products! I feel more classy just reading this post. Now excuse me while I go change out of these pajamas and dress myself up a bit.

I've only had two cavities in my whole life, and no dental work other than that. So consequently, I'm terrified by the dentist. My heart goes out to you!!

Gosh, I really sympathise. I once had 7 dental injections in one week, and the weeks either side were pretty bad too. I almost got sacked, I think my boss thought I was making the appointments up, obviously unconvinced by my Bell's Palsy like appearance. Anyway, I hope it will all be over soon. It is hard to stomach the costs, but as least we have the option to have modern dentistry. Sympathies, take care of yourself!
