How to Get Super White Teeth

Mentioned in video:
-Brush your teeth twice a day at least & for 2 minutes each time, use mouthwash after brushing
-Use a Whitening Toothpaste (Crest 3D White can be found at drugstores such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens, etc.)
-At home whitening system (Crest White Strips, Rembrandt Whitening Trays- both can be found at drugstores mentioned above)
-Zoom Whitening or professional whitening treatments by dental professionals (contact your dentist/orthodontist)
-Give up dark colas, coffee, tea, red wine, cigarettes/tobacco, red sauces on foods
-If you cannot give these up, rinse mouth out with water after eating/drinking these
-Drink liquids through a straw
-Brush with a soft bristled toothbrush & don't brush your teeth too hard (I use an Oral B electric toothbrush)
-Get a professional dental cleaning every 6 months
-Chew sugarless gum
-Brush teeth with baking soda or hydrogen peroxide
-Eat strawberries & bananas


  1. Oh, brushing is given need for all of us. But it does not provide the all-around protection our teeth need. Flossing and mouth washing should complement brushing. And do visit your dentist once in a while! Oh, doing all of these can take some of your time and money. But these will make and keep your teeth white like a pearls, that's for sure! :)

  2. Hi Sara! Thanks for your tips. They're great! And you're living proof. You're not only keeping your teeth looking fabulous, you are also promoting good oral hygiene.

    There is one thing, however, that you can incorporate and is also recommended by dentists--you've got to clear the tongue and lip surfaces, insides of cheeks, roof of your mouth.

    It's amazingly YUCKY the residue what builds up on your tongue, and if this is residue is not eliminated, it doesn't matter how much you do to your teeth or how much you floss. The bacteria accumulating on your tongue will offset the progress.

    The easiest, non-nexpensive and thorough cleaning technique to clean the tongue is a metal spoon. Turn the spoon on its edge and slowly, gently but firmly scrape the spoon edge across the tongue surface--starting from the back of the tongue all the way to the tip.

    For best results, scrape in three stages--that is, scrape first one side, then the other, then the middle.

    If you do this, you'll never NOT do it again because...well, you'll see what I mean.

    A lot of what is left on the tongue is also the cause of bad breath.

    Try it!

    BTW, using the soft toothbrush to deal with the tongue is NOT thorough enough. You need "the edge" to scrape all the residue off.

    The toothbrush is okay for the inside of the cheeks and the roof of the mouth, but not for the tongue.

    I do this 2-3 times a day and after I brush. It makes all the difference in the world.

    Try it!

  3. So that is why your teeth are so white and healthy? I think being obsessed to keep your teeth white is not crazy at all, Sarah. You’re just maintaining good hygiene and I don’t see anything wrong with it. Your video will be such an inspiration to everyone out there who want to have perfectly white teeth just like yours.

  7. “Give up dark colas, coffee, tea, red wine, cigarettes/tobacco, red sauces on foods.” - This is the best place to start. Give up these bad habits and look for something that will benefit not only your teeth, but also your overall health. The condition of your teeth is an indication of your general wellness. Clinton @
