Looking After Your Smile

May 18, 2017


 If you’re an avid reader or the blog you’ll be aware of my recent veneer process with Dr Apa, and since I’ve had my new smile, I’ve been so aware of my oral health and taking extra steps in making sure that I’m providing my teeth and gums with the best care. From flossing daily to being vigilant with brushing and gargling, I’ve become a bit of an addict when it comes to all things teeth, so much so that I’ve roped Reem into taking the same extra steps for optimum care. So when Philips got in touch with us about testing out their new Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean electric toothbrush, we thought it would be the perfect excuse for a follow-up post regarding my new smile and how you can also take better care of yours.

The one side effect I’ve felt since receiving my veneers is that my gums are slightly more sensitive than they used to be, I was told by my dentist that this is quite normal for the first few months after the process, so making sure I don’t irritate my gums when brushing my teeth or flossing is a huge factor for me. When I was introduced to the Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean toothbrush, one of the first things to sell me on it was the option to have the toothbrush on either one of its five settings, be it, Clean, White, Sensitive, Gum Care, or Deep Clean, I can now take control of the type of clean my teeth and gums get at home, and feel just as good as I would having just left the hygienist’s chair.

This post is in collaboration with Philips, all opinions and enthusiasm for oral health is our own!  


Reem and I have both been using the toothbrush for just over two weeks now, (I’ve mostly been using it on the Sensitive setting, and Reem has been trying out the Deep Clean setting for the most part), and so far it’s been a great experience. It takes a few days to get used to how powerful it is, and it was definitely a shock to the system, as even though we were both electric toothbrush users before, this one is like nothing we’ve ever tried. It genuinely feels as though you’ve just had a clean at the hygienist, so you can imagine it’s a step above the norm in terms of power, which can take a little while to get used to.

The toothbrush itself is so pretty, it comes in a few colour options but the one we both opted for is the white and rose gold, and it also comes with a little case that you can charge up, keeping your toothbrush fully functional, and hygienically clean whilst travelling.

The Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean also has a very handy self-timer as well, so you can be sure you’re brushing each section of your teeth for the right amount of time before moving on to the next, and thanks to all the different settings, every day you can treat your gums and teeth to a different sensation depending on what you’re trying to achieve.


It goes without saying, but be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for a full two minutes.

Floss at least twice a day.

Try and avoid food with too much colouring so as to avoid staining your teeth.

Go for regular check up’s at the dentist or hygienist.

Invest in a good quality toothrbush.
