Teeth Staining Foods

There are certain teeth staining foods that you should avoid if you want to keep your teeth the whitest shade possible. These teeth staining foods contain acids and sugars that eat away at the enamel and cause stains to build up over the course of time. This leaves your teeth with yellow and even brown patches that can have a negative effect on your smile. teeth staining foods

To keep your teeth as white as possible, you should avoid drinking coffee and red wine, as both have dark colouring that leaves those tough, long lasting stains that we all hate.

Also in the list are solid foods such as tomatoes and coloured hard boiled sweets. Although tomatoes are very good for you, they also contain acids that eat away at your tooth enamel. Same goes with apples, especially green ones!

Even certain sauces can be bad for your teeth! For example, BBQ and Soy sauce are both nasty little enemies of your lovely white teeth. Don’t let them attack your precious and irreplaceable enamel! Look after those gnashers and go for an alternative…. Try mayonnaise!!

Go easy on the fizzy drinks too, as the sugars and citric acids can be harsh on your teeth and gradually build up unwanted dark stains.​

Next time you’re thinking about ordering that Friday night chicken tikka masala, just pause and think about your lovely white teeth and if you would risk your glow for a mere takeaway? Because yep, you guessed right! Curry is bad for your teeth!

So as a conclusion, if you want your white teeth to continue looking white, avoid all of the specified foods and opt for more enamel friendly foods and drinks.
