Foods And Drinks That Stain Your Teeth
Have you been wondering what are the foods and drinks that stain teeth the most? Well, you’ve come to the right place to learn what to avoid if you want to minimise staining.
Why do some foods and drinks stain your teeth?
There are a few reasons why some of our favourite things to eat or drink can leave our teeth a little less than pearly white. The main culprits for straining are chromogens and tannins, but foods with a strong acidity are also responsible for wearing down the protective enamel of your teeth, leaving you more prone to discolouration.
Foods and drinks that stain your teeth
- Red wine
- Dark, sugary drinks (like colas)
- Fruit juice
- Dark acidic sauces like soy sauce and balsamic vinegar
- Tomatoes and tomato-based sauces
- Energy drinks
You don’t have to completely cut these things out of your diet, but limiting them is certainly an active way to reduce the chances of staining.
