Bright, white teeth are beautiful and give many of us confidence in our smiles. So how do you keep your teeth shinning without skipping your favorite staining beverages (hello, evening glass of Cab and morning espresso)?

1. Metal straws are your friend (and the environment’s too)! Straws help protect your teeth from staining molecules, and metal versions are reusable and reduce waste.

2. Your caffeinated and functioning. Now what? Lemon water. The beneficial acids from the lemon combined with water combat stains (and improves digestion/detoxifies). Use the same routine after you enjoy red wine – if it’s in the evening, try your lemon water hot for a soothing way to unwind before bed.

3. Baking soda has some pretty amazing household benefits and whitening is one of them. A few times a week, brush with baking soda in addition to your toothpaste to help scrub away surface stains.

Of course, professional teeth whitening services allow you to see the greatest improvement in the shortest amount of time (and we offer those!), but sometimes you just need a few DIY hacks.

Happy whitening!
