We all want glistening white teeth, but sometimes it’s hard to maintain. The simplest ways to evade unsightly yellow stains on our chompers is to avoid some foods we eat, including dark pigment foods like wine and berries.
Trying to steer clear of teeth stain-inducing foods seems easy enough, but we’ve also gone a step further in choosing the best on-the-go (and affordable) teeth-whitening products that you can easily stash in your purse! Read on to find out how to start whitening your teeth in no time at all — even when you’re too busy to make a dentist appointment.
Keep Your Smile White
You will want to avoid any food or drinks with dark pigments, as they have the greatest potential to stain teeth. Culprits include: red wine, coffee, tea, blueberries, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tomato sauce, grape and cranberry juice. All of these foods have their benefits, so here is how to combat the downside of their staining ways:
· When you eat staining foods, keep a glass of water handy. Sipping after every couple of bites will help decrease the chance of staining.
· Never skip a bedtime brush, and brush your teeth as soon as possible after a staining meal.
· Add stain-fighting foods to your meals. Apples, celery, and carrots act as a natural stain remover, while greens such as spinach, broccoli, and lettuce create a film over your teeth that acts as a barrier against staining.
