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.
