QK lists several tips to whiten teeth and avoid tooth discoloration. For example, GQ suggests people brush, floss, and visit the dentist regularly; consider using an electric toothbrush; avoid major staining culprits, such as coffee, red wine, and tea; consume calcium-rich foods to help strengthen enamel and slightly abrasive foods, such carrots and nuts, to rub off stains; avoid tobacco products; use a whitening toothpaste; apply whitening strips; and consider whitening at the dentist office. GQ also emphasizes the importance of consulting with a dentist prior to whitening teeth.
Dental professionals can direct their patients to MouthHealthy.org, ADA’s consumer website, for evidence-based information about teeth whitening. The ADA provides a complete list of toothpastes with the ADA Seal of Acceptance, including some with stain removal attributes. In addition, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Glamorous White and the Oral-B Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating (O/R/P) Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush have earned the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
