Secret of whiter teeth? It’s toothpaste and mouthwash

STEVE CANAVAN: It was a lot of rattle over just a little roll

Have your say

I think I may have discovered the secret of whiter teeth.

For me, it’s a cunning combination of Colgate toothpaste and Listerine sensitive mouthwash (with the added benefit of cutting down on coffee and not having touched a cigarette for years).

I hit on this combination purely by chance, but was recently dazzled by the less-grey look of my mouth.

I don’t want to go uber-pearly white like some celebrities, or even near-pearly white like the grinning actors you see in toothpaste commercials.

But I was happy with the unexpected result of looking a bit more sparkly.

Would anyone else notice? Maybe not, but I’m walking with inner whiter teeth confidence and surely that sparkles through?
