If only your teeth could be naturally white and glisten beautifully every time you smile. Although this likely isn’t the case now, there are measures that you can take to help keep your teeth looking clean and white for a picture-perfect smile.
With options from DIY whitening to whitening at your dentist, there are numerous methods available to help keep your teeth sparkling. However, did you know that even if you’re keeping your teeth clean and getting them whitened regularly the food you eat could be sabotaging your efforts?

- Orange juice
- Cranberry juice
- Citrus fruits (lemons, oranges, grapefruit, etc.)
