  1. First of all your teeth don’t have to be paper white. However, if you’re like me and had borderline orange teeth, and it’s an insecurity, here is what I did that worked (without spending thousands of dollars or feeling insane pain).

    For maintaining…

    #1 Brushing teeth 30 mins after having breakfast and coffee. Not sooner than 30 minutes because remaining particles + brushing can lead to abrasion.

    #2 Letting the fluoride from toothpaste sit on teeth after brushing without completely rinsing.

    #3 Never go to sleep without brushing teeth, especially after wine, curry & such.

    For initial whitening (if like me you have years worth of stains from coffee)…

    #1 Used the Mint teeth whitening kit (brand is called Mint) which uses gel pens and blue and red light therapy.

    #2 Switched to advanced whitening toothpaste from Sensodyne for a month when I first started.

    Good luck! Personally I know it’s a big insecurity but I also don’t want anyone to think they have to alter themselves to be loved or something. Teeth aren’t naturally paper white so keep that in mind. I did it for my own reasons.
