Drinking though a straw can give you the perfect smile

Drinking though a straw can give you the perfect smile

More and more people want to achieve the perfect white smile, and now people can start the process at home with a few simple steps.

Research has shown that drinking through a straw can help protect teeth against the harmful sugars and colours that are found in drinks. Drinking through a straw means that liquid doesn’t actually touch the teeth, which helps prevent stains.

The mouth should also be rinsed out with water after sipping on a coloured drink such as coffee, juice or smoothie to avoid permanent stains. Brushing teeth straight after a drink is also not recommended; instead a 30 minute wait is more beneficial.
