You Might Be Over-Whitening

Most of us have either used whitening strips, whitening toothpastes, or brushed with baking soda to help whiten our teeth.

It's not recommended to use any whitening strips more than once a month and any other whitening method more than once a week - any more than that and you'll strip away too much enamel.

If you feel the need to whiten your teeth daily, do it naturally with foods like strawberries and pineapple. Both are acidic in a cleansing way.

Also try celery, pears and apples. They contain fiber, which increases the amount of saliva in your mouth. The more saliva you're making, the cleaner your teeth!!
