Use A Straw For Whiter Teeth

An inexpensive way to get and keep your teeth white is investing in straws. This is especially important if you can't give up the no no's, like coffee, that we talked about above. The reason that straws are important is that it keeps the liquid from coming into close contact with at least your front teeth, so they won't stain.

I've tried several of the tips you have listed but I have two strikes against me I'm a coffee/tea drinker and I smoke (trying to quit ...sigh) I've always used peroxide mainly for any gum inflation etc.

I love all of the bad stuff listed here, so I buy a lot of straws! I'm also trying to quit smoking, best of luck to us both.

Same here. I love my coffee and tea. You can't enjoy coffee with a straw. I heard from someone to immediately brush the teeth after drinking tea but who wants hot then cold on their teeth. I have tried the whitening toothpaste for many months but they made my teeth sensitive. As for quitting, what worked for me was Chantix which is a prescription. Forget the nicotine patches, they don't work for everyone. Good luck to you both. Great article, voted up and sharing :).

It's funny that you mentioned fruits in here. I recall watching a video last month on Youtube about how apples can help clean our teeth. Glad to see that mentioned in this article as well. Besides trying out whitening toothpastes, I've yet to try any of the other methods. I'm definitely going to look into giving a few of them a shot. Valuable information here. Voted up, and rated useful. Well done!

Thank you! Fruits are great for your teeth, as odd as it sounds to rub them on. I've tried all of these methods and they all work really well.

Interesting. I knew about baking soda and peroxide, but not sesame oil, strawberries or bananas. Hmmm. I'll have to check that out.

It feels odd the first few times but it's completely natural and 100% safe for your enamel.
