As you probably know by now, the primary intent of OraWellness Shine is to support our teeth in areas of existing decay as well as protect against future decay.
In addition to Shine’s primary goal to facilitate remineralization, a secondary intent of this new OraWellness product is to safely and gently whiten our teeth.
Depending on your focus, there are many ways you can use Shine to best support your oral health.
For more written instructions, check out this article that details the various methods and strategies for using Shine to maximize your remineralization and whitening efforts.

Am I to understand that after using the drops and/or the Shine powder, that you do not rinse the mouth, but instead leave the products to sit on teeth instead?
What are your thoughts about the timing of brushing? Do you recommend brushing first thing in the morning before drinking or eating? I have heard that the bugs are most abundant upon rising in the morning and that brushing and rinsing first thing, reduces the number of bad bugs going systemic.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
In general, we do tend to spit and rinse our mouths with water after brushing with Shine and/or the HealThy Mouth Blend (we didn’t show it in our videos to avoid the ‘yuck’ factor of watching someone spit :).
On the other hand, we when we’ve finished brushing and before we spit, we will hold the Shine / saliva / HealThy Mouth Blend in our mouths and swish it around for a bit as though it were a mouthwash. This gives the solution a little more time on the teeth. Then we spit and rinse (one of our team members will actually just rinse her tongue after spitting so that any trace amounts of the Shine/saliva/blend solution stay on her teeth for a little longer after that).
Regarding the timing of brushing, personally, to address any thug bugs that have built their numbers overnight, I do clean my tongue and brush my gum line and teeth first thing in the morning. Then I allow some time to pass (by doing other activities to get ready for my day) before circling back to eat breakfast. When I finish eating, I rinse my mouth with clean water to wash away any remaining debris, staining agents, or acids from the foods and drinks that I consumed.
Here are a couple of articles that explain more about the timing of brushing:
