Keeping teeth clean is difficult. Many tasty foods are sweet or sour, which means they slowly eat away at the enamel of your teeth. Other delicious things, such as wine, tomato sauce, and beets, sprinkle the pearly white of your teeth with all kinds of unsightly stains.
On a normal day, you start by drinking coffee, then at lunch, you season your salad with balsamic vinegar, drink a soda to give yourself a little boost, smoke a cigarette, prepare the marinara sauce or curry for dinner, eat canned beets, and finally relax with a glass of red wine… Here is the ultimate routine to brush your teeth. Moreover, you can also brush them with yellowish-brown paint.
The dilemma is obvious. How can you continue to enjoy these “vices” without leaving stains on your teeth? We were pleased to learn that it is possible to do both. We sought the advice of several dental surgeons, in New York.
Here is a list top 10 of the things that stain your teeth the most
10. Balsamic vinegar
Dark pigments and sticky consistency will leave stains on their wake.
9. Fruit juices
Fruit juice is slightly acidic, making teeth more sensitive to stains. Fruit juices also contain sugar that can nourish bacteria, causing cavities while staining your teeth.
8. Tomato sauce
It contains a highly pigmented color and is also acidic. Acidic foods can weaken the enamel layer of your teeth, which can make it more porous and therefore more sensitive to stains.
7. Pigmented fruits, such as blackberries, blueberries, and pomegranates
There is a variety of fruits that have dark pigments that can easily stain your teeth. Blackberries, blueberries, and pomegranates have purple and red pigments that can leave residue on the teeth.
6. The beets
They have a particularly strong pigment and will stain your teeth with red or orange.
5. Soda pop
The acid nature of soda can make your teeth more porous and more sensitive to future stains. Darker ones such as colas can produce other discolorations.
The spice commonly found in a variety of foods leaves a yellow or orange pigmentation on your teeth.
3. Smoking cigarettes or hookah
These products contain nicotine and tar, both of which can cause yellow and brown spots on your teeth. Not to mention that they can cause bone loss, tooth loss, receding gums, and many other health problems.
2. Coffee or tea
Most people depend on these drinks to get their daily dose of caffeine. Unfortunately, when they are consumed regularly, they leave a grey or brown discoloration on your teeth.
1. Red wine
Like coffee and tea, most red wines contain tannin (organic combinations of tannic acid and glucose).” You can see the red spots on your teeth immediately after consumption, that’s how powerful they are.
