OTHER HEALTH TIPS

In conjunction with these recipes, don't forget to follow basic oral hygiene such as flossing regularly to reduce tooth yellowing.

It's advised to brush your teeth at least twice a day, and use floss to get into the hard-to-reach places around the gums and the backs of the teeth.

While brushing removes build-up from the teeth surface, flossing will remove plaque and other particles between the teeth.
