Dazzling white teeth

My sister has the whitest teeth of anyone that I know. It’s gotten to the point that I try to avoid being next to her in a picture because her dazzling white teeth make me feel like mine look dull and drab. She swears it is natural, but I just don’t believe her. I am convinced that she makes regular trips to the dentist to have them bleached. In an effort to brighten up my own mouth, I have tried everything from rinses, to tooth pastes to home whitening kits hat leave my teeth sensitive and aching after the first day.
If you are like me and want white teeth without the suffering, then there are a few of natural tips and tricks that are guaranteed to work (trust me, I have tried them all). First, try swishing with warm water for 30 seconds after you eat anything. This can get a bit tedious, but it really does work by removing any food that is stuck in your teeth and preventing them from staining. Another natural remedy is to add more of leafy greens like kale and spinach to your diet. Not only are they really good for you, but they also contain a mineral that helps protect your teeth against stains. If you are a coffee drinker, always make sure to add milk or creamer to your coffee. The milk and cream make it more difficult for the coffee to stick to your pearly whites and stain them. And did you know that your lipstick can actually make your teeth look more yellow? Next time you are picking out a new shade, try one with a blue undertone, which gives the illusion of whiter teeth. Pale pinks and reds with yellow undertones do the opposite and actually make your stains more noticeable.
