Trying to keep your shiny, white teeth clean, but every day you realize their turning a different shade of yellow?
Did you know that something so simple as the foods we eat and the beverages we drink can result to stained teeth? Most people often take their teeth for granted by not properly brushing after they’ve eaten or drunk certain drinks and foods.
Here are the top 5 foods and beverages that stain your teeth:
- Wine (including white wine)
- Tea (Except Green tea, Herbal tea and White tea)
- Sports drinks
- Sweets (Candy, bubble gum, popsicles and certain fruits)
Now, I’m not saying that you should avoid these items. Let’s face it everyone needs to have a little sugar every now and then, but it’s always important to care for your teeth once you have finished.
When you let these sugary substances remain on your teeth it can cause your teeth to decay then rot. As a result of this you will start to see cavities form on your teeth and you will also get toothaches.
To prevent this from happening you should try limiting the amount of sugar and high carbonated foods you intake. Also, brushing, flossing and rinsing will also play an essential role in preventing tooth decay and cavities.
Always remember, your teeth are very precious. Keep them clean, white, fresh and beautiful!
