When I say whiten your teeth I don't mean as white as snow but I'll help enhance your teeth and make it brighter. You can easily use natural fruits to achieve this instead of paying a dentist a while lot of money. 1. Apples Apples have a high concentration of malic acid, which is used in some toothpastes.
