Everybody wants white teeth. Here are some sure-fire ways to get them nice and white!

Anything in your diet that has a colour to it, can potentially stain your teeth. A good way to think about it is that “if it can stain a white shirt it can stain your teeth”. Examples of food that can stain your teeth are Indian and Chinese curries, green and dark herbal teas and any items containing food colouring. If you have ever seen the inside of a cup of unfinished herbal tea, you will know the amount of stains it can leave. A clever idea is to drink water straight after to try and wash away some of those stains, so the tea doesn’t hang around in your mouth causing stains

2- Give up the smoke
