7 Foods That Are Staining Your Teeth
So how to do you keep your perfect smile white? It may be more to it than those specially formulated toothpastes and mouthwashes. Maybe it all just comes down to simply one thing, your diet. Try avoiding these seven foods for a brighter, whiter smile!
1. Berries: Yes they are sweet and nutritious, but they have dark, deep pigments. These colors coat your tooth enamel and leave a film on your teeth that cause staining.
2. Beets: Now these are a serious teeth stainer! If you are a beet eater then you should be more than aware of how badly this veggie can stain your clothing, so just imagine the damage it can have on your teeth!
3. Crackers: Are you a saltine lover? Well, you might rethink that next cracker you are about to munch on. Many crackers contain refined carbohydrates, which create sugars that attract tooth-staining bacteria.
