Quick Teeth Whitening Tricks


If you haven’t had time to do serious teeth whitening lately, employ these three quick tips from New York-based cosmetic dentist Dr. Marc Lowenberg to keep your teeth as sparkling white as possible. Number two will come in very handy this weekend if you plan to indulge in a glass of red wine — or three.

Tip 1: Munch on raw, crunchy vegetables to help mechanically remove surface stains.

Tip 2: Before sipping on red wine (or other teeth-staining foods or drinks) coat your teeth with a thin layer of Vaseline to help protect them from stains.

Tip 3: Wear lip colors that have blue undertones. The contrast with your teeth will help your smile appear brighter. Try MAC Lipstick in Russian Red, $14.50.

  1. Great post on tooth whitening tips. I know drink red wine and smoking are bad and make teeth look dull. However, I have not heard much about these three tips other than using cucumbers to enhance your smile. I have retweeted this!!
