Dear Dr. Ellie,
I have discolored teeth, but I am afraid to whiten them with the products from the drug store, and I can’t afford the costly whitening at the dentist office. Do I have any options for whiter teeth?

Thanks for writing. I am not a fan of the over-the-counter grocery store teeth whiteners myself. They can be very damaging to your teeth, so you are smart to avoid them. I recommend that you follow my CWT (Clean White Teeth) system for the best results. This will not only whiten your teeth safely, it will strengthen them and give you a healthier mouth. I heard from someone recently who had a similar problem, here is his letter to me: (-Dr. Ellie)
Hi Dr. Phillips,
I just want to say how pleased my wife and I are with your Xylitol products. My problems with Bad Breath and coffee colored teeth have been with me for 40 years. Up until now the Dental profession kept telling me I should brush more, floss more and keep spending money and more money with them with no results. They even wanted me to pay hundreds to brighten my teeth. This I refused and kept searching for a better way.
Well thanks to the opportunity I had to hear you speak at the YMCA Retired Men’s Club; my problems are solved. You described the key ingredient, Xylitol, and how it could work for me.
Well being skeptical and also in Sales all my life, I had to be convinced. So I tested myself with the product.
The results without a lot of mumbo jumbo is this stuff works! My breath problem is solved, my teeth are getting lighter, and I don’t feel so guilty using Xylitol sweetener in my coffee to keep my weight down.
My relatives with diabetes also tell me they can use the products without affecting their insulin levels.

For anyone who would like to try something unique to help keep your teeth whiter you might try BriteShots. It is not a whitener, but is a peppermint teeth rinse to help prevent teeth stains. I use it after coffee, tea, etc. And, it’s sweetened with Xylitol. Just go to http://www.BriteShots.com
