I've been paleo for about a year now, and love it.
HOWEVER- my teeth get stained so easily now it's crazy. At first they started losing the whiteness at the tips, and now it's moving closer to the base. Also, after I started to eat frozen blueberries (wild, organic brand from Costco) my teeth turn blue from them and remain bluish, also red wine tends to stain them more so than people around me. Anything I can change or do to maintain whiter teeth?
