Brush your teeth two times a day to help keep stains off.
Coffee lover? Try drinking your coffee through a straw to help prevent coffee not touch your front teeth.
Soda, Pop, Coke, whatever you call it—swish with water after you drink to help your teeth stay pearly white.
Eat foods like cheese to remove plaque from your teeth. The less plaque the less staining! Plus calcium and vitamin D help strengthen your teeth. Win! Win!
Purchase a “soft” toothbrush to not damage your teeth when brushing. Hard toothbrushes can damage your gums and teeth and cause yellow to show above your gumline.
Get your teeth cleaned two times a year from your dental hygienist. They are trained professionals to help keep your teeth clean and healthy. Plus they get those hard to reach places.
If you are a wine drinker start with red wine and end with white. Wine is acidic and can cause slight etching. When you start with red and end with white you don’t have to worry about the white wine staining!

Use a whitening toothpaste every other day with a soft toothbrush to maintain those bright white smiles. If you use Opalescence™ whitening toothpaste, you can use it twice a day!
Do you wear a nighttime appliance? Clean your appliance in white vinegar and rinse with tap water. The cleaner your appliance, the whiter your teeth will be!
