teen girls selfieOn June 21, millions of people around the world will be taking millions of selfies. Why? Because it’s National Selfie Day! You may be searching for ways to whiten your teeth to ensure you capture your best smile. Check out these simple tips to make your smile shine:

Eat the Right Foods

Growing up, you may have heard often from mom and dad to “eat your fruits and vegetables.” They probably meant it from a health standpoint, but did you know that eating certain fruits and vegetables can whiten your teeth? Crunchy fruits and vegetables such as apples, celery, and carrots can help remove particles that discolor your teeth.  

Avoid Products that Discolor Your Teeth

Certain products have certain qualities that can turn your teeth yellow. Whenever possible, avoid smoking cigarettes, drinking soda and coffee, sipping red wine, and eating citrusy foods like lemons and limes. These products are known to discolor teeth and cause other health-related issues.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

The basis of good oral hygiene starts with a toothbrush. It’s extremely important to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. By removing the plaque and particles that build up on your teeth throughout the day, you are contributing to whiter (and healthier) teeth. Don’t forget to brush your tongue; bacteria on your tongue can spread to your teeth and cause discoloration.
