Healthy Smiles

1 2 3

A healthy smile is something that many of us aspire to. Alongside the health and wellbeing of our body, our teeth, gums, and mouth need a bit of extra care to keep well. Our smile is the one thing that is always on show and visible to the world around us; it is very difficult to hide poor dental or oral care!



Teeth whitening treatments and gum health have become increasingly popular areas of interest, there are far more procedures and remedies now than ever before to help give you the best smile you can have. However, dental treatments for whitening or stain removal can be quite costly and so it helps when you can spend some time looking after your oral health.

A lot of the time, our oral health can be taken for granted and this can cause numerous issues, not just with the color and appearance of your teeth, but also with the soft tissue in and around your mouth. As well as how well and how frequently you are cleaning and brushing, the type of toothpaste and mouthwash matters just as much.

With so many kinds of toothpaste and oral rinses to choose from, it means that we often switch from one brand to another. Where possible, it is always advisable to use what is suitable for yourself and your oral health needs. For instance, those with more sensitive teeth and gums should use toothpaste or rinse that is highlighted to help with sensitivity. Smokers should choose ones that aim to help with stain removal or with some whitening advantages. The point is, don’t just grab anything because it is convenient! Taking better care of your oral health requires some focus and research on what is best for you.

In this way, you can potentially avoid the uncomfortable effects of using the wrong products. Most people would agree with the adage that the cure should not be worse than the disease. We usually think of this as referring to some particularly loathsome treatment. We don’t usually think of it as referring to something we have been doing all our lives, with no obvious ill effects, such as brushing our teeth!

Canker sores in particular can be quite uncomfortable.


Canker Sores

Canker sores are small lesions that appear around the soft tissue of the mouth; one of the causes of canker sores is products such as toothpaste and mouthwash which contain SLS. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a chemical used in many cleaning products including toothpaste and oral rinses. 

Of course, we are all savvier now than in our youth as to the potential ill effects of chemicals in our diet and health care regimens. Unfortunately, most toothpaste, including many brands marketed as “natural” contain a strong foaming agent, or surfactant (also called a detergent). The most common foaming agent is sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). 

It may sound tedious to check the ingredients of your toothpaste and oral rinses but it really can help in the long run if you are armed with the knowledge of what you are using. A good day and night routine, and using the right products can make a massive difference to your oral health, and of course, your smile!

Verve Ultra wanted to introduce a better-for-you SLS-free toothpaste into the market. Initially, growth for their product was slow but steady! And since Verve Ultra’s humble beginnings, they have gone from strength to strength. Verve Ultra’s toothpaste has become one of the most popular for canker sore prevention.

“For many individuals, including me, exposure to this chemical leaves the mouth tissue susceptible to the development of canker sores, or what dentists call aphthous ulcers. In the mid-2000s finding moderately priced toothpaste without irritating chemicals, that didn’t introduce any new “active ingredients” (with their potential side effects), was nearly impossible. This formed the kernel of the idea to bring a new brand of toothpaste to market”- Verve Ultra 


Why Choose Verve Gel Toothpaste?

In creating this soothing toothpaste, Verve Ultra wanted a product that would do an excellent job removing plaque, food, and stains, and leave a truly fresh feeling after bushing, but most importantly do no harm.

One of their biggest decisions to make was whether or not to include fluoride in Verve. They eventually decided that what they did not want was a customer coming to them after using Verve for six months and saying “thanks for the help with the mouth sores, but now I have a mouth full of cavities''!



“However, because the fluoride in toothpaste is applied directly to the teeth, and then spit out and also the majority of dentists recommend fluoride toothpaste, we decided to include it in our formulation”- Verve Ultra 


Here are some key points and benefits of Verve Ultra’s SLS-Free Toothpaste:

  • Ingredients are kept simple and transparent.

  • Vitamin E is included as an ingredient owing to its natural antioxidant properties.

  • A fresh, minty taste that won’t cause a sting or tingle. 

  • Good stain removal without being highly abrasive on your mouth, teeth, and gums. 

  • Verve contains no animal products, nor is it tested on animals.

  • Whiter teeth. Many people buy Verve as a canker sore toothpaste, but end up loving it for its whitening ability (without irritating bleach or peroxide).

  • The result of Verve Ultra toothpaste is a fresh, clean feeling! 

  • This toothpaste is made in the USA.

  • Amazon has given Verve Ultra its Climate Pledge Friendly designation for our single tube simple and minimal packaging. 



“In addition to being SLS-free, Verve contains Vitamin E and Glycerin, both of which are humectants. Humectants attract and maintain moisture. Retaining moisture in mouth tissue is important because a dry mouth, like dry lips or hands, is more susceptible to sore formation. Vitamin E also acts as an antioxidant on the surface tissue inside the mouth”- Verve Ultra

Verve Ultra is super confident in their product, they guarantee your satisfaction with Verve Ultra SLS-free toothpaste. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason, any unopened tubes, or even the unused portion of an opened tube, may be returned for a full refund less shipping costs.
