Water is a great way to ensure that your teeth stay white. Have a glass of water on hand after drinking dark-colored liquids like coffee and soda so as to prevent stains. It’s also helpful to guzzle dark drinks through a straw.
Avoid lipsticks that have a golden or orangey tint to them. Instead, opt for ones that are cherry red or berry colored to help make teeth look whiter, as the blue undertones in these latter two colors help offset the yellow in teeth. Go for glossier lipsticks as well, as matte lipsticks can make teeth look dull.
Brush After Meals
The most obvious way to avoid yellow teeth is to, of course, brush your teeth! Remember to not over-brush though (2 minutes should be adequate) or brush too vigorously, as your gums may start to recede. Hold your brush with two fingers to avoid brushing too hard.
