A Winning Smile Full Of Self-Confidence w/ Crest Complete plus Giveaway #CrestSponsored #WinningSmile - Sammy Makes Six

A Winning Smile Full Of Self-Confidence w/ Crest Complete plus Giveaway #CrestSponsored #WinningSmile


A winning smile is very important, so much so that even though our money was limited, I made sure my girls were able to get braces, so they would not have to go through life like me, with really crooked teeth. I didn't want them to have to feel self conscious, or worry about people talking about them. It was hard to grow up hearing kids snicker behind my back and having people purposely make fun of me because of them. What's worse is that I love to laugh, big laughs with my mouth open, and sometimes I remember my teeth and actually stop laughing. Only because there are some really stupid people in this world, people who will take something like my teeth and use it to make fun and laugh. But in the end I am okay with this, but not for my kids. I try to make sure that they never go through that type of pain, or the pain that comes from having bad oral health. 

That is why I want my girls to have self-confidence and feel comfortable when they open their mouth to talk, to laugh and of course to smile. Building confidence in your children, so they can be prepared to step out into the world, is key. Part of a winning smile, is having a healthy smile too. 


A healthy smile means going to the dentist at least twice a year and a daily oral care routine that my girls can follow.  Another aspect that is very important in order to get the kids to follow this routine daily and care for their teeth, is to show them by example. They have to see me taking care of my teeth everyday, and that helps motivate them to do it themselves. 

As part of this campaign, P&G sent us some of the products from their 
Crest Complete Deep Clean line to try out.


Wowza! The toothpaste is very refreshing and you can feel it really setting to work on scrubbing your teeth. {You really can feel all the little bubbles going to work} The Oral B Complete Glide floss picks make it so easy for even the children to floss twice a day. Since they are mint flavored, everyone wanted a turn using them. The Scope Dual Blast is totally refreshing and leaves your breath so fresh. 


Did you know that The Procter & Gamble Company was the official oral care sponsor of the London 2012 Olympic Games? Helping to improve the understanding of oral care and the effect on an athlete’s performance. 

That’s why Olympic gold medalist and 2012 hopeful, Steven López has partnered with Procter & Gamble – an official 2012 London Olympic Games sponsor – to share how his healthy, winning smile helps to fuel his confidence during competition, and in life. P&G Oral Care believes that every day is full of opportunities to open up to the world and that the more confident you are in the health of your mouth, the more you open up to the world around you. 


If a  healthy-winning smile is important for the athletes that represented us in this year's Olympics, it is definitely important for our families. We have to provide them with the tools they need to care for their oral health, and protect those smiles. When my girls can smile with confidence, I feel like I am doing a good job as a mom. 

Get more information about Crest: 

P&G Oral Care offers a comprehensive line-up of toothpastes, rinse, toothbrushes and floss and provides consumers with innovative, targeted solutions designed to meet specific oral care needs, including the Crest 3D White, Crest & Oral-B Complete and Crest Pro-Health product portfolios.


P&G wants to give one of you the tools to a winning smile full of self confidence.  Thanks to them, one person is going to win the Crest Complete Deep Clean prize pack which includes the entire line of products!!
