Keepin’ your pearly whites white
Tips for maintaining white teeth
In addition to using a whitening toothpaste and an electric toothbrush (which gets into places that a manual brush might not), here are a few tips from NetDoctor.co.uk to help keep your chompers white:
• Wait at least an hour after brushing your teeth to drink tea and coffee, as teeth are more porous and prone to staining immediately after brushing.
• Avoid strongly colored foods such as pesto and dishes containing saffron, which can stain teeth.
• Choose a mouthwash without chlorhexidine, which may stain teeth after prolonged use.
• Don’t smoke—nicotine will stain your teeth faster than just about anything.
