What are some great experiments for science fairs on teeth and things that stain them?

I need a science experiment to do with staining of teeth.

Well teeth and egg shells are made of similar materials. You can use things like coffee or food coloring or coke to soak eggshells in and summarize the results.

You need more than one tooth (or unglazed enamel can work). Place your teeth (or enamel pieces) in a variety of liquids that can stain them. Suggestions are coffee, tea, cola soda, grape juice (or wine, though possibly problematic). Put one tooth in clear water as a control. Check the teeth daily and record any color changes.

Common items that stain teeth are coffee, red wine, and cigarette smoking. There are many products that whiten teeth. You could do a before & after experiment.

Using coffee, tea, grape juice, blueberries, red wine or tobacco and then seeing the effect of toothpastes with and without peroxide as well as whitening rinses.
