What would it take to keep you smiling and happy? Happiness is a serious issue.
Don’t laugh – there’s an actual institute dedicated to researching the topic. One thing is
for certain: relationships, work, and social confidence can be affected by your smile.
Whether you need just a little bit of help or a complete smile makeover, here are
some options that we can use alone, combined with each other, or in combination
with other cosmetic options.

Tempt Your Tastebuds
The Chinese have been enjoying this pale beverage with
its sweet silky flavor since the Ming Dynasty. White tea has
become the infusion of choice among tea – and health –
aficionados because it can help your body’s immune system
to fight off viruses and dangerous infection-causing bacteria.
Fluoride-rich white tea can also help to prevent the growth of
dental plaque – the root cause of tooth decay and gum disease
– without staining.
Steamed instead of processed, its silvery leaves remain so
close to their natural state that white tea also retains more of the
powerful anti-oxidant that fights and kills cancer-causing cells
than any other type of tea.
You can enjoy this refreshing non-staining brew in a cup
or in anti-viral and anti-bacterial toothpastes enhanced by the
addition of white tea extract.
