The Best At-Home Teeth Whitening

I always got jealous of friends who said the secret to their perfectly whitened teeth was eating strawberries. I knew they either had theirs whitened professionally at a Dentist or that person was just blessed with a good gene. As a daily tea and coffee drinker myself, I thought I had to settle for the stained teeth for the rest of my life because I…
