Don’t Be in the Dark about the Discoloration of Teeth

dca-blog-tooth-discoloration_1200x630

Tooth discoloration is caused by many factors, yet a surprising number are in your hands. See which foods and drinks are leaving their dark mark on your smile.

Tea Perks up Your Chance of Tooth Discoloration

Most people know that coffee leaves teeth dark and discolored, but tea can actually lead to more stains. And even herbal and white teas can actually erode your tooth enamel, which can lead to later stains.

Colas and Carbonated Drinks Fizzle out White Teeth

Did you know that colas and carbonated drinks are some of the main causes of the discoloration of teeth? See, these fizzy drinks contain acids and dyes that can cause significant staining.

Sports Drinks Promote Staining Activity

It’s time to work sports and energy drinks right out of your workouts. Their high acid content can erode your delicate tooth enamel, which can cause later staining. It’s wiser to drink water during a workout.

Wine will Leave You Whining about Stains

Wine may be good for your heart, but it’s very bad for your teeth. The dark color and acids in a glass of red wine can cause the discoloration of teeth. While white wine is lighter in color, it’s even higher in acid, which can do damage to tooth enamel and put you at risk for stained teeth.

Sauces Start Stained Teeth

Sauces that are dark in color, such as soy and tomato sauce, are very staining and high in acids that can eat away at your smile. Choose lighter shades of sauces and brush your teeth after meals to decrease your chance of stains.

Pick Berries for Tooth Discoloration

Berries leave your teeth ripe for stains. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, and any dark-hued fruit or juice can leave their mark on your teeth. Not surprisingly, lighter fruits have much less staining potential. But since many of these fruits are very high in antioxidants, you can continue to eat them in moderation, but rinse your mouth afterward to decrease the likelihood of stained teeth.

Lighten and Limit Your Dark Decisions

While it’s probably not realistic to deny yourself all of these foods and drinks, simply try to limit your intake for the sake of your smile. And when you do have darker drinks, be sure to sip them through a straw to avoid their contact with teeth. Finally, when you do consume any dark-hued foods, either rinse your mouth or brush your teeth as soon as you’ve finished enjoying them.
