Teeth stains

What causes them: Beverages such as red wine, coffee, and dark soda can do a number on your pearly whites.

What to do: Toothpastes with special chemicals or polishes and store-bought whitening products may lighten your teeth a shade or two, but for more effective treatments, ask your dentist about stronger, in-office procedures. You can also try this natural approach to teeth brightening: Crush a strawberry to a pulp and mix it with baking soda until blended. Use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth, and leave on for five minutes before brushing it off. (Just be sure not to do this more than once a week, as too much acid from the fruit can damage your teeth's enamel.)
