Top 7 Teeth-Staining Foods & Drinks

 

Everyone wants a white smile, but many of your favorite foods and drinks may be preventing you from having that pearly white smile more than others! The purpose of providing this list is not to advise you to eliminate all of these, as some of them are actually beneficial to you health, but to make you aware of which ones stain your teeth the most so that you can take proper action. Below you can find some tips on how to minimize the staining of your teeth.

The Top Teeth-Staining Foods & Drinks:

  1. Tea
  2. Wine
  3. Coffee
  4. Sodas
  5. Berries
  6. Sports & Energy Drinks
  7. Deep Colored Sauces

Tips for Minimizing Staining:

  • Cut back on the foods and drinks that stain the most.
  • Use a straw when drinking drinks that stain. This will reduce the amount of contact the fluid has with your teeth.
  • Swallow faster. By swallowing faster you reduce the amount of time the staining food or drink has with your teeth.
  • Rise and brush after every meal or drink, especially after coming in contact with any of these top teeth-staining foods or drinks.

How Can I Remove the Stains I Already Have?

The most effective way of removing stains is through a professional in-office teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, professional whitening uses higher concentrations under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the best results.

Your second best option is with a take-home whitening kit that you get from your dentist. Though not as strong or ass effective as an in-office treatment, they are still superior to over-the-counter kits.
