Do you want whiter teeth? Use these tips to keep your pearly whites sparkling.

Avoid foods that stain your teeth: Coffee, soda and berries can all stain your teeth.

Eat foods that keep your teeth white: Food high in fiber like apples and spinach work to remove stains from your teeth.

Drink through a straw: If you drink beverages that could stain your teeth (soda, juice, red wine) pose less risk to your teeth if they are consumed through a straw.

Floss: Flossing helps keep your gums healthy and pink, which will help keep your teeth appearing whiter.

Try an electric tooth brush: Electric tooth brushes are better at removing stains that regular tooth brushes.
