What does your SMILE mean to you ?

I love to smile I smile when i'm happy and I try to
smile when I'm sad. This photo was taken on the happiest day of my life last year. I never smiled so much as I did on that day, and not just for the photos

 I'm a firm believer in a smile can change your mood in an instant.
4 and a bit years ago back in 2009 2 weeks before I met my husband I had braces put on my teeth - as ive never been happy with my smile my bottom teeth were really squished and it the fact they were so squished was causing discoloration.& my top teeth stuck out a bit.
 So I made the brave and expensive decision to get braces. It was so painful, it was close to childbirth ! I couldn't eat solid food for a month so our first few dates consisted of milkshakes and soup. Its a good job he loved me from the start lol      

Now I'm a mum I love to smile my little G makes me so happy :-)
I'm so please G has a nice smile and hopefully he wont need braces.

Now I'm a mum its extra important for me to keep my teeth and gums clean. Keeping my gums clean is extra important to me because I have had heart operations - this increases my risk of having endocarditis which is an infection of the heart. One of the causes of endocarditis is having bad gums.
So when I saw britmums were asking for reviews I jumped at the chance to test this premium gum protection tooth paste as part of oral Bs campaign. When I was pregnant I brushed my teeth after every meal to keep my teeth and gums in tip top condition as one in two women will develop gum problems during pregnancy, with my medical history there was no way I wanted to risk that so H  brought me an oral B electric toothbrush he really is so thoughtful :)

My smile means everything to me and I intend to keep it sparkling clean
