3 Foods To Avoid For Whiter Teeth

Beautiful smiles sometimes require a lot of time and investment to keep them looking their best. Time, money and energy, as well as regular care and dental visits, are all important, but if you want whiter teeth, read on to learn which foods you should avoid:

1. Blueberries

Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, blueberries are very healthful fruit. They’re also a natural dye. Despite their delicious taste and beneficial qualities, blueberries not only will stain your hands and clothing, but they will also temporarily turn your teeth blue after consuming only a few handfuls.

2. Coffee

Coffee is addicting and can keep you coming back for more, but be careful how much you consume as the color can stain and dull the whiteness of teeth. Brushing directly after finishing your morning brew can help avoid permanent staining and let you enjoy your coffee without fear.

3. Dark Sodas

Sodas contain a lot of sugar, which can break down tooth enamel. Add to that the dark, caramel color, and it’s the stuff of dentists’ nightmares.
