A couple of weeks ago I was attending a Rosemount Wine lunch for Fashion Week and was chatting to one of their winemakers. He told me something quite interesting. Did you know that wine makers are given dental treatments as part of their job because a hazard of their job is wearing the enamel out and staining of their teeth? I was surprised but then again not so surprised as you can often tell the red wine buff by the stains on their teeth.
Whilst I don't drink that much red wine, I do drink loads of tea and I have to confess that when at home I drink my tea out of a straw. It's a little tip that my friend Queen Viv told me to help keep my teeth white and although it can elicit curious looks if you ask for one it is nevertheless a practical tip. In the absence of drinking through a straw (I can do it since I work from home but people do stare if you do it at work or in a cafe ;) ), we have a hamper of goodies which allow you to try out the new Pronamel toothpaste which helps to get rid of stains and protect your teeth along with some of the foods that can cause enamel wear and staining.
The hamper includes:
Beerenberg Strawberry Jam
Delouis Fils old fashioned mustard
Simon Johnson green olives with garlic
Simon Johnson freeze dried kaffir lime leaves
Simon Johnson preserved lemons
Emma & Tom's orange juice
Tyrrell's 2009 Hunter Valley Shiraz Wine
Fattorie Giacobazzi balsamic vinegar
Plus of course a full sized and travel sized tube of Pronamel toothpaste and toothbrush!
