Don't Brush Right After Eating

To get whiter teeth wait 45 minutes to an hour before brushing after eating. Food and drink acids can compromise teeth's protective outer layer, so brushing too soon can actually drive particles deeper into teeth, causing stains. Instead, rinse with water or, once a day, a hydrogen peroxide whitening wash, and brush later. http://www.self.com/looks/beauty/2014/09/whitest-teeth-ever-slideshow/
