Wash Your Mouth Out With…..What?!

For someone who is a non-smoker, and non- coffee drinker, my teeth sure do seem to be prone to yellowness (is that a word?) I always use a toothpaste with whitener in it, but that doesn’t seem to do the trick. A few years ago (okay I think it might have been 10 years ago) […]
