Teeth whitening and what foods cause teeth staining?

High acidity foods can contribute to enamel erosion, increasing the chances of stains setting in. This enamel erosion can also reveal the yellower dentine that lies beneath our whiter enamel.

If you are not sure how to tell, there is an easy reference to work out whether a food or beverage is ok. In general, it is likely if something could stain your clothes or your tongue, the chances are it’s also going to stain your teeth.

Some of the biggest smile saboteurs are the ones we like and often drink daily such as black coffee, tea – especially green tea, turmeric, balsamic vinegar, red wine, prosecco. No, not prosecco!

However, it’s not all bad, and there are also things to incorporate into the diet that will boost teeth whitening.

Leafy greens that are rich in calcium, folic acid and lots of important vitamins and minerals that your teeth and gums love.

A bit of moderation and balance and we seen no reason to stress there and teeth whitening does give you a lovely radiant smile.
