A Journey to Clean Teeth #HappyHealthySmiles

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.

Oral health is something that is very important to me.  It is actually something that I think about all the time.  Having braces makes me think about my teeth all the time.  My family was blessed (more like cursed) with soft and awful teeth.  When I was growing up, we never had dental insurance, so we never went to the dentist.  I never went to the dentist while I was in high school.  Then finally when we got out of college and get a real job, we got dental insurance and I went to get my neglected teeth fixed, 7 cavities filled in one day. Since then I have learned to take care of my teeth and to go to the dentist regularly.

Now that I have braces, it would be pretty silly to spend thousands of dollars on my teeth and not take care of them. When I heard about the Colgate 2 week program to get healthier teeth and a clean mouth, I was super excited to try it out!

So I headed to Walgreens when they were having the Saturdate event.  I picked up the three products: Colgate total advance mouthwash, toothpaste and 360 toothbrush.  I even got a free pocket mirror!  I used my balanced rewards card to save even more money.  Check out my whole shopping experience here.  
So I headed home and was ready to started my journey to clean teeth.  I'm so excited to have #HappyHealthySmiles
I have been using the toothpaste, toothbrush and mouthwash for a full week now and I must saw I can totally tell a difference.  My teeth just feel cleaner.  When I rub my tongue on my teeth, it feels smoother.  The top picture is of my teeth before I started using the Colgate products.  And the bottom is just one week in.  
I can definitely tell a difference, my teeth are whiter in just one week.  I'm going to post another picture  on Instagram of when I hit two weeks and I can't wait to compare my teeth. So make sure to check it out so you can see the end result. 

  I have not been using anything else but the Colgate products.  I use them all two times a day.  I just love the mouthwash.  It doesn't have alcohol in it so it doesn't burn my tongue and I can actually use it for the full 30 seconds.  It's so nice to use with my braces because flossing is not an easy task.  I also really like the size of the toothbrush too, it's big enough to hit both sides of my tooth when I'm brushing.  I feel like it is getting deep down in it.  Overall I just feel like my mouth is cleaner and healthier.  I'm definitely going to continue to use the Colgate products even after the two weeks are up!

I would love it if you followed along.
