My summer of giveaways continues with an absolutely brilliant one from Rapid White: they are offering A Model Recommends readers* the chance to win one of FIVE Pro Clean & Polish devices for a hygienist-at-home, deep-clean experience. Rapid White’s new Clean & Polish system is scientifically proven to remove up to 68% more plaque and stains than an electric toothbrush alone, making your teeth look whiter (and feel a lot cleaner!) even after just one use.
I have never, ever met anyone who can talk as much as my dental hygienist. It’s actually something of a problem, and Mr AMR feels the same way – we both sort of dread going, because what should take ten, twenty minutes, takes about forty as she bangs on about everything from Christmas tree longevity to the benefits of a cordless hoover. Quite honestly, she could talk the hind legs off a donkey, and it wouldn’t be so bad if she just got on with the job as she talked, but she stops mid-polish, with the metal hose thing in her hand, and waves it about as she continues her monologue. Your jaw begins to ache but you can’t shut your mouth because you never know when she’s going to dive back in again!
So I love that the Rapid White Clean & Polish system can’t talk. When I first read about a “hygienist at home” I thought God, no. Pass me the earplugs. But this is strictly (almost) silent, just emitting a comforting hum that is nothing like the dreaded sounds you get in the dentist’s chair! And easy to use, too. Inspired by the cleaning and polishing treatments used in dental surgeries, it has a cleaning head and a polishing head, which has a small rubbery cup on the end, and you use these, along with the special dental polishing paste (included) to remove stubborn stains, and precisely clean along the gum line and on the interdental surfaces.
A thorough, deep clean. Mr AMR said it made his teeth feel like new teeth. And he has very good teeth anyway (strong, white teeth – “American” teeth as my Dad would call them!) so it’s worth noting that he saw a big difference. The Clean & Polish system has been designed to be used once or twice a week, on top of your usual oral care routine and it doesn’t feel like a faff at all – it’s just like having to brush your teeth again, a couple of times. As someone who quite likes messing with their face (examining pores, inspecting hairline for greys, etc) it’s actually rather enjoyable to spend time doing a close-up cleanse on each tooth, and the polishing part is very satisfying.
