Beautiful hair, impeccable makeup and heavenly ballgowns are indisputably hallmarks of a Disney princess!
Hmm… Seems like I got everything covered for the wedding. *happy dance*
Oh wait? I think I forgot something.
Aww… I sure did. Every Disney princess also has a lovely set of pearly white teeth to mesmerise their Prince Charming.
If you’re a fellow city-dweller, you probably would find this all too familiar in the mornings – the alarm clock screaming in the middle of your sweetest dreams resulting in you waking up in shock and jumping out of bed to get ready while still feeling rather asleep. Come on! Who brushes their teeth with their eyes closed too?
Then to fight off that doziness, you gulp down a soothing fragrant cup of coffee – EVERY weekday morning. And the ramification of that? Not only do you feel more alert, you’re also one step closer to looking like the Wicked Witch of the West instead.
So to make sure my bridal beauty routine did not go down in flames, I decided to seek the help of my dental Godmother, Theresa Beauty, to help with the teeth discolouration problem.
And guess what? In the space of just a few weeks, the change was remarkable! Hubby and I felt our gnashers could even be worthy of Colgate’s next toothpaste ad. Haha!
Psst! You’ll be happy to know that there was no bleaching or abrasive ingredients involved in the treatments.
Seeking a dazzling white smile too? Then you’ll have to read on!
Our warm welcome included a nice cup of tea before all the magic began. Whoopee!
Every treatment is preceded by a consultation session to evaluate the current state of your teeth and also to explain the procedures of the treatment.

Our tooth shade was measured based on this teeth color chart.
According to Sandra, besides food and drinks that are high in tannins, aging can also cause teeth to yellow. As we age, the outer layer of enamel on your teeth gets thinner due to wear and tear which eventually unveils the natural yellow colour of dentin.
And of course, other factors that affect the color of our teeth includes smoking, genetics as well as poor dental hygiene.
Now, let’s assess our dental situation. 😛
For best results, we were told we need to ‘start with a clean slate’. So we were given these cleaning wipes to remove all the gunk on the surface of our teeth.

Thereafter, we were introduced to these tools to kick off our treatments of the day. 🙂
Sandra squirted the whitening gel, that was specially formulated by Theresa Beauty, on the mouthpiece before placing them in our mouths.
To be honest, I wasn’t the most comfortable due to a painful teeth whitening experience at another beauty salon several years back that left me wary of harsh chemical whitening treatments.
Sandra assured me that the treatment would not trigger the same side effects I experienced before as Theresa Beauty’s whitening gel does not contain harsh ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide. In fact, its imbued with natural ingredients such as sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) which is also its key whitening agent. Besides removing stains, the gel can also neutralize and counteract bacterial acids in the mouth too. Yay!
However, no man is an island. The gel needs to work in tandem with Theresa Beauty’s latest Light-Emitting Diode (LED) technology in order to react with the enamel, penetrate the pores and break down the discolouration molecules in the teeth.
Hence, the next step was to place this LED device a few centimetres away from our teeth for 30 minutes. The blue beam would activate the properties of the gel and allow it to perform its task more effectively.
And now we wait. 🙂
It was a rather comfortable process as you can probably tell from the photo above. I was falling asleep!
The only thing I felt was the warm sensation from the light source.
Okay, there was one thing that I didn’t exactly enjoy – the saliva gathering at my mouth throughout the treatment. The staff at Theresa Beauty assured me that it was perfectly fine to swallow my saliva but since I didn’t really like the idea of ingesting the whitening gel, I allowed it to accumulate in my mouth. Eek!
To make sure I don’t stay uncomfortable for too long, our thoughtful therapists were already on standby with water and a tray, minutes before the treatment alarm on the LED device went off to allow me to discard the saliva immediately.
And then, we were done!
Well, I guess it was all worth it as my teeth was visibly four shades lighter after the 30 minutes treatment.
And so had B’s.
We were still five weeks away from our wedding so Sandra suggested that we come back for another treatment in four weeks to improve the treatment results further.
And we did and guess what?
My teeth is now at Shade 8. Whee!
And B’s at Shade 16 – a whopping 14 shades lighter!
After the treatment, the kind folks at Theresa Beauty not only gave us a complete teeth whitening home kit, they also conveyed their well wishes for our wedding with this cute flower and a beautifully handwritten greeting card.
We can’t ask for better service than this. Thank you Sandra and Theresa Beauty!
So, white gown – check, sparkly shoes – check, crystal tiara – check, pearly white smile – check!
