Chances are you have a bottle of hydrogen peroxide tucked away in your medicine cabinet, buried somewhere behind your product graveyard—the spot where you stash beauty products you don’t really use but think you might want someday. Well, now there’s a reason to resurrect that unassuming bottle of hydrogen peroxide—actually, several reasons.

Cosmetic surgery among men is becoming an unspoken norm. From “Brotox” and injectable fillers to Board Short Tucks and CoolSculpting, men are stepping up their game when it comes to maintaining their appearance. But does the uptick in aesthetic procedures symbolize a new era of access and empowerment when it comes to men, or will it open the floodgates to the same body image concerns that women have been battling forever? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 men had Botox injections in 2014 (up 337 percent from 2000) and over 90,000 received fillers (which marks an 86 percent increase since 2000). Similarly, RealSelf.com (an online community that connects people considering aesthetic treatments to others undergoing the same procedures, and to board certified doctors) reports a 59 percent jump in male visitors over the last year.

New York City-based periodontist Dr. Nicholas Toscano explains which items will hurt your smile—and maybe even your personal life. Dark Liquids—Duh! “Teeth absorb colored liquids—coffee, tea, cola, and wine—throughout your life causing intrinsic staining of the teeth, which is hard to remove,” says Toscano. “It neutralizes the acid in your stomach, which sends up some gastric juice reinforcements that belong nowhere near your tongue.” Brush after you drink it, get a cleaning every six months to prevent long-term damage, and avoid it before an important event. Onions and Garlic “Most of us know to steer clear of this bad breath duo, but it’s hard to do when it’s sometimes hidden as a flavor-enhancing ingredient,” says Dr. Toscano. “Raw onions are worse than cooked, with a lingering punch that is much harder to get rid of.” He says garlic will ward off more than just vampires, and is difficult to rinse away. Anything with Seeds “Poppy, strawberry and sesame seeds find lodging in every tooth cranny,” says Toscano.
