Our smiles have some enemies lurking. Very often these enemies can be found in our daily habits, in the foods we eat and especially in the beverages that we drink. Coffee, tea, red wine and some soda can all stain your teeth and darken your smile. This means that you have to avoid excessive consumption, but it also means that you should seek out the foods that can help to brighten your smile instead. While they’re not as thoroughly effective as professional teeth whitening products— they are cheap, natural, and great to incorporate into your diet.
Every parent desires the best of everything for their children – from the finest education, to the brightest smile. As we all know, kids go through many changes and transitions with their teeth throughout their adolescent years, some even longer.
