Of course, any dark matter will probably stain your teeth, and of course nobody skips his morning coffee, so make sure you brush your teeth afterwards to protect them on the long-term and keep them white. Another smart way to clean the stains is to eat something that produces saliva and wash your mouth naturally like the foods underneath.

• Apples, pears and guavas

1. Change your toothbrush

Change your toothbrush or the head of it if it’s electric every two or three months. Make sure you apply your toothbrush on your teeth with a 45-degree angle and clean them using a circular movement. Don’t scrub too hard or else you’ll damage both your teeth and your gum.

2. Clean your tongue

If you brush your whole teeth a thousand times and go over your gum too, it wouldn’t be enough when your tongue is rolling all over them spreading bacteria without shame. Clean your tongue every morning with a tongue scraper for the sake of your teeth and to remove a bad breath.

3. Eat foods with firm textures

Raw carrots, celery, and popcorn are a good example of these. Make one of these foods the final one after a meal especially if you can’t brush your teeth.

4. Brush your teeth with baking soda once a week

You can apply baking soda like you use normal toothpaste. In the old days, salt was the only toothpaste our grandparents used to conserve their white smile. Be careful! Don’t mistake salt or baking soda for food and swallow them by mistake.
