See the Light on Stained Teeth

A white, bright smile begins and ends in your kitchen. Many foods and drinks can severely stain your teeth, so discover the leading stain-starters and how to protect your smile.

Berries Color your Chance of Tooth Discoloration

Face the fact that berries are bad for white teeth. Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, cherries, and similar darker fruits and juices can lead to the discoloration of teeth. Not surprisingly, lighter fruits have much less staining potential. Since many of these fruits are very high in antioxidants, you can continue to eat them in moderation, but rinse your mouth afterward to decrease their staining power.

Tea Brews Serious Stains

If you think coffee is the only hot drink that can stain teeth, think again. Tea is actually more staining, plus even white and herbal teas can diminish your tooth enamel, which results in more stains.

Colas and Carbonated Drinks can Cause Tooth Discoloration

When it comes to the discoloration of teeth, colas and carbonated beverages are at the top of the list. See, these fizzy drinks contain acids and dyes that can cause significant staining.

Hold the Sauce to Hold the Stains

Sauces may make your meals taste better, but they make your teeth look worse. Dark sauces like tomato and soy can leave your teeth badly stained. Select lighter shades of sauces and brush your teeth after meals to decrease your chance of stained teeth.

Wine Tips Staining In Your Favor

Red wine may be a top-flight beverage, but it’s also a top cause of the discoloration of teeth. While white wine is lighter in color, it’s even higher in acid, which can do damage to tooth enamel and put you at risk for stains.

Kick Sports Drinks to the Curb

Many athletes love sports and energy drinks, but they won’t love the stains that these leave on their teeth. These highly-acidic beverages wear away tooth enamel, which results in later stains. It’s wiser to drink water during a workout.

Decrease Your Dark Desires

Darker foods and drinks are such a regular part of our lives that they can be hard to completely give up. Instead, try to reduce your overall intake and only enjoy them occasionally. And when you do have darker drinks, be sure to sip them through a straw to avoid their contact with teeth. Finally, when you do consume any dark-hued foods, either rinse your mouth or brush your teeth as soon as you’ve finished enjoying them. Although you should wait an hour after consuming highly acidic foods and drinks before brushing so you don’t damage your teeth’s enamel.
