What really stains your teeth
You have probably noticed that after drinking coffee or red wine regularly, your teeth look less bright, especially if it has been awhile since you sat for a professional dental cleaning treatment or you have bleached your teeth with a home kit. Even though coffee and wine are traditionally known to stain teeth, there are other foods and beverages which may be the primary cause of yellowish and dark spots and less pearly looking smile.

One beverage that most people love and drink often is tea and unfortunately we got to break the news that teeth is actually more staining than coffee. If you do like tea, keep in mind that herbal, green or white tea are a better choice for your teeth than any other type of tea. The more the tea looks dark, and the more tannin it contains; tannin is the substance that leaves your teeth stained.

As for veggies, whether you love juicing or smoothies, try to avoid the liquid from coming into contact with your teeth by using a straw. Green veggies are known for leaving stains quite quickly. We mentioned red wine earlier on but white wine is no exception when it comes to shiny teeth as it contains high dosage of acids which weaken your teeth enamel.

Please bear in mind that we’re not saying you are not allowed to indulge into wine or juicing or coffee and tea; the point is to consume these foods and beverages in a smart and moderate way. Even if you notice your teeth aren’t exactly white and you would like to do something about it, there are many affordable ways to whiten teeth without having to take drastic measures. Whatever you decide to do, whether to buy a home kit, apply a DIY recipe or try out a special toothpaste, we advise you to consult with your dentist beforehand. Sometimes the product which you can find in your local drugstore can contain abrasive substances which may damage your teeth in the long run. Also, having your dentist polish your teeth is a great way to get rd of plaque and calculus, the main cause of periodontal disease.
