He is known as the dentist who does beautiful veneers for Hollywood celebrities.  Beverly Hills based dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands is considered one of the top international experts in his field.  But if you don’t want to invest in veneers there are other ways to get a beautiful smile.   “Cut strawberries in half and rub it on your teeth.  Strawberries contain malic acid, which is a natural whitening agent,” explained Dr. Sands.  ”Wear dark lipstick because that makes your teeth look whiter and avoid staining foods such as soy sauce, coffee and tea. Limit your red wine and switch to white as much as you can.”
