I finally brought Orawellness Shine Remineralizing Tooth Whitening powder and was really excited to get in there and start seeing what results are possible.
I had high hopes just because so many other people who have used shine have seen excellent results but i am aware everyone is different so results may differ from one person to another.
I wanted to share my results with you guys to see if i can actually Remineralize Teeth Naturally.
I hope i can because it will increase my confidence 10 fold and i will be more willing to smile.
Right now i am consciously aware that my teeth are not in a good state which stops me from smiling naturally.
The second reason is that if do see results from orawellenss shine then the owners: Will, Susan, Rebekah and Chris (Also known as the WOW team :) will be sending out a free gift which is always exciting.
It will most likely be another one of their products that has a good reputation in the community: The Healthy Mouth Blend.
If you want you can join me on this journey by getting your own shine powder and sharing your results with us. Here is where I ordered mine from:
I received my order on August 1st 2018 and started off by taking pictures of the product and my teeth which is really important as it will show if there was any progress.
NOTE: I wrote this review over a period of 3 weeks so i might tend to talk in the past and present tense interchangeably.
Before we get to the Pictures and results, lets talk about the product itself and see why it is so talked about:
What is Orawellnes Shine?
It’s a powder made from natural ingredients and the best part is they are all the same as the minerals our teeth are made up of.
They are made available to rebuild and restore the minerals that have been lost from our teeth.
It’s a 2 in 1 product that targets:
- Remineralization (The Primary Goal)
- Gentle Whitening
How Does It Remineralize Teeth Naturally?
The team at orawellness have been researching this topic for years and here is what they say:
Shine mixes together 3 strategies that makes it something unique that the world has not seen before.
~ the minerals are exactly the same as the minerals our teeth are made of
~ the minerals are in a very bio-available form
~ the particle size is tiny in order to be incorporated into the tiny tubule structure of our teeth
~ the formula uses a unique delivery method to bring the minerals exactly to where our teeth need support
The main point you need to take away is that shine contains tiny particles of the exact same minerals found in our teeth to rebuild and restore the lost minerals from the teeth.
The loss is a result of our bad eating habits and not so good oral hygiene routines.
Tip – Keep saliva flowing throughout the mouth all the time as it is one of the main factors when it comes to keeping our teeth remineralized.
Drink plenty of water and consume xyltiol based chewing gum regularly throughout the day.
How Does Shine Whiten Teeth?
This is more of an added bonus or an excellent side effect if you want to call it that.
Research has been carried out and its been concluded that white kaolin clay powder is the most effective at whitening teeth without damaging the enamel.
It even works on vaneers and white composite fillings on the front teeth.
This is absolutely what i was looking for because i have enamel problems but my teeth especially the bottom ones are yellow (see picture) so i hope this works for me.
What Are The Special Ingredients Involved In The Shine Remineralizing Powder
The main ingredients involved are:
- Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA)
- Non GMO, Birch Based Xylitol
- Calcium Lactate
These sound very complicated so I had to search them up and read about them to get a better understanding. I can say after reading up on the ingrediants, they are 100% legitimate.
Microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is the main ingredient and the name itself gives us a clue as to why this is.
Microcrystalline means a small particle which is in crystal form. This is a good thing because our teeth are more or less living crystals, the crystalline form is perfect for what we intend to use it for.
The tiny size is essential for it to activate the minerals so they can be used to rebuild tooth enamel.
hydroxyapatite is the naturally occurring mineral form of calcium apatite. upto 70% of human bone by weight is made from this mineral, so you can see why it is so important to teeth health.
Non GMO, Birch Based Xylitol
Xylitol is produced from birch trees found in north America and plays a critical role in delivering bioavailable minerals to the areas where tooth decay is present.
Xylitol supposedly amplifies remineralization by helping to ensure MCHA is delivered where it’s needed most.
The non GMO is really an added bonus as people are becoming more aware of the hazards GMO products can cause.
This mineral is commonly used as medication to help reverse the symptoms of calcium deficiencies. This used in conjunction with Xylitol will enhance the remineralization effect.
Proof of this is a study which was done on 2 groups of people. one group was the control specimens and the other group were given chewing gum containing xylitol + calcium lactate for 4 times a day for 2 weeks.
After the 4 weeks were up the results were calculated using x ray spectrometry and they found that teeth remineralization was greater when chewing gum on a regular basis.
These 3 ingredients do the majority of the lifting but there are other natural ingredients involved in making it a complete product. You can read the full list of ingredients at their: Shine Remineralizing Powder Home Page
this is all well and good but the big question still remains…
Can you Remineralize Teeth Naturally?
Lets Start With My Before Pictures
NOTE: (I ONLY HAVE THE CAMERA ON MY PHONE WHICH IS ONLY 5 MEGAPIXEL HENCE WHY THE PICTURE QUALITY IS SO BAD. I WILL BE INVESTING IN A PROPER CAMERA SOON, HOPEFULLY.)
August 1st 2018:
Yes i know my teeth are all wonky and crooked but i wil be sorting that out later on. First i want to fix the underlying conditions which are:
- Bleeding gums
- Gum Recession
- Loss of enamel
You should do the same as well. Fix everything that has to do with your general oral health and then we can move forward with aesthetics.
I will take after pictures 3 weeks later as that is what the guys over at orawellness recommend. You aren’t going to see results instantly although there are some rare exceptions but those are not average results.
Now Lets Look At The After Pictures (Fingers Crossed)
31st August 2018:
Did Anything Happen?
As you can see my teeth did not whiten, but i’m fine with that because i brought it for the sole purpose of remineralizing teeth.
And anyways, the stains on my bottom teeth are quite stubborn as i neglected them for years and years.
After the first week i noticed that the sensitivity i had on my bottom middle teeth was drastically reduced.
Before using this product i use to feel pain every time i flossed the bottom middle teeth but this was nearly gone after just 1 week of using shine.
Another thing i noticed straight away was the saliva production in my mouth increased during and a couple of hours after using the shine powder.
If you did not know already, Saliva is critical in helping to keep the teeth mineralized.
It will break down any starchy carbohydrates that you consume and will allow phosphates and calcium to flow around your teeth which will keep the teeth nice and healthy and hard.
My gums have become stronger especially the top ones, i feel like they are covering more of the teeth and they don’t look swollen anymore.
The bottom ones are still slightly swollen but i will keep at it and see what happens.
My Daily Routine
Basically i used it like normal toothpaste, just moistened my toothbrush and sprinkled the powder on top of it and brushed for 2 minutes.
I did my bottom set of teeth first and then applied more powder and brushed the top set.
This was done twice a day, once after breakfast and once before bed.
To be absolutely honest, i was a bit hesitant at first to place alot of powder on my teeth but it worked.
I still have a quarter of the jar remaining and will use excessive amounts of powder to see what happens over the coming weeks. Maybe using more gives better results?
Here is a video that shows you how to use shine for maximum effect:
Would I Buy The Remineralizing Powder Again?
Absolutely 100% YES!
It has made my gums stronger and has reduced the black spot i had on my lower right tooth, and there is also a feeling of less plaque being built up which is amazing.
I Have Only 1 Regret
I was so excited to buy the product that i missed some tips and tricks that the orawellness team suggested. One of the big ones being, to use the Healthy Mouth blend alongside the shine powder.
They said that if you mix them both together and turn it into a paste you would see much Better and Faster results.
I will be buying again and but this time, i will be getting the Healthy Mouth system which contains both the Shine remineralizing powder and the Healthy mouth blend alongside:
- specially designed not-fancy-but-effective Bass toothbrush
- the best tongue cleaner on the market (Environmentally friendly ‘zero plastic’ packaging!)
- Mint dental floss
If your interested in getting the beginner friendly starter kit, please head on over to the Orawellness Product Page
Although the product has the word whitening in it, that is not it’s MAIN JOB. First and foremost it is specifically designed to help restore enamel erosion and reduce sensitivity.
If you are looking for a product specifically designed to whiten teeth then this is not it. You may however want to check out the Billionaire Teeth Whitening Kit if you want fast whitening results.
Who Can Use It
Will and Susan have stated that their product is safe for anyone including Children and Pregnant women.
The only word of caution is that there may be some trace minerals in the product which can be volatile and dangerous in high amounts.
But the levels contained within shine are so low that it isn’t worth worrying about.
Are There Any Side Effects
I have read through the product description and the ingredient list and the F.A.Q section of the product and i have not found anyone mention any side effects. Why would there be?…
I mean all the ingredients are naturally found in our teeth anyway so you would think there would be no adverse effects.
The only thing people would worry about is the trace minerals within Shine as they can cause some problems but because the amount is so tiny, it is not worth even thinking about.
What Do Customers Make Of The Orawellness Shine Tooth Powder?
As of February 2019 there are 657 reviews for this product and most of them have been positive. A lot of people have said they noticed changes within the first 3 weeks which is fantastic.
Take this review by Dory D for example:
“Because of consuming a highly-concentrated-carbohydrate diet for many years and because fluoridation and bruxism, I have dissolved, chipped off, and ground away much of the enamel on my molars, exposing dentin. A week ago I was having trouble chewing because of the sensitivity of my teeth, which hurt every time I chewed. After a week of resuming my use of Shine–Remineralizing Tooth Whitening Powder, I am able to chew almonds and salads again without any pain. Thank you, OraWellness!”
Now although 99% were happy with shine there were a few people who did not like it. The main thing was the taste and the fact it did not whiten teeth which is a fair criticism because the product does state it will gently whiten teeth over time.
I did not notice any whitening while i used it but the benefits i got from the remineralisation far outweighed anything else for me personally. If my main concern was whitening teeth i would of brought some whitening strips or a LED system!
Is It Expensive
It costs $25.94 which i consider very reasonable especially because it actually works and another good thing about this company is they offer a WHOPPING 1 Year Guarantee on all their products, yep you read that write, (365 day fully backed guarantee).
I dont think i have ever seen any other health-based company giving such reassurance and also shows they are 100% confident in the products they sell.
Thats always a good sign :).
If you are interested in Reducing your sensitivity and hardening your tooth enamel then the Shine Remineralizing powder is for you!
Teeth can be remineralized naturally contrary to popular belief but only the right minerals and substances can do this.
This is why Shine Remineralizing powder is so good, it contains all the essential ingredients to help restore the minerals that are lost in our mouth.
I have shown you my own pictures so you can see how this product has helped me reduce sensitivity and restored some of the enamel.
This was done over a 1 month period. Next time i will be buying it with the Healthy mouth blend to see if i can completely get rid of the bleeding gums.
If you are someone who has been struggling with demineralization and sensitivity, i highly recommend you try it out for yourself.
There’s nothing to lose because it comes with a 365-day money back guarantee.
If you have any questions about the product please ask me because i have tried and tested it and will most likely know the answer to your query. Just comment below.
