Whiter teeth are definitely on everyone’s New Year’s resolutions list this year. Studies have actually shown that a captivating white smile can make you look younger, more successful and even more employable. Bring on the new jobs! Sometimes, though, it can be hard to get rid of stains without the assistance of a dentist. Not to fear, though, we’re here to help.
Try eating for a whiter smile! Eating foods like apples, celery and carrots can actually “exfoliate” your teeth and help to remove stains. If that doesn’t work, try mixing a concoction of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and your favorite toothpaste. Use this paste to brush your teeth and your pearly whites will be noticeably whiter.
In order to prevent discoloration and stains on your teeth in the future, use a straw to drink your coffee or black tea. It will allow the drink to go straight past your teeth so stains don’t happen.
