Seems like just about everyone is sporting whiter teeth these days. Have you tried whitening yet? What method did you use? Did it work?

According to Health Day News: Watch What You Eat After Teeth-Whitening, Expert Says

ating certain foods and avoiding others can help keep your teeth white after you've used an at-home whitening kit or had cosmetic bleaching, an expert says.

"For many individuals who have had good results with either dentist-directed or over-the-counter whitening techniques, a significant concern is how to keep the teeth white after bleaching," Dr. Raymond Garrison, professor and chairman of the Wake Forest Baptist Department of Dentistry, said in a Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center news release.

"We now know that there are foods that actually help to keep your teeth white rather than stain them. In fact, it may help patients avoid the time and expense of whitening retreatment."

I haven't tried to whiten my teeth --- too much bother fo so little impact, IMO.

Of course, there was that NCIS episode whhere Tim forgot to take out the mouthpiece and had such WHITE teeth that they were blinding! Kind of funny, when you think ofit!

I've tried the Crest whitening strips and love them! They are a bit of a nuisance, but they do work!
