Keeping Your Smile White And Bright

Home » Blog » Keeping Your Smile White And Bright

WITH WHITE CLOTHES, SOMETIMES IT TAKES a little bleach and a little sunlight to bring them back to their beautiful brightness! Over time, and even when freshly washed, a t-shirt and socks will start looking like they’re losing some of their zip. The same goes for your smile!

Your teeth may not feel the same as a cotton t-shirt feels, but they ARE porous, and they absorb the food colors that you eat each day.

Which Foods And Drinks Stain Teeth The Most?

Take a look at these top staining culprits. Some of them may surprise you.

  • Coffee (some studies show coffee will stain even worse than smoking)
  • Berries (including those delicious berry smoothies you love)
  • Brightly colored candies
  • Red wine
  • Dark sodas
  • Curry
  • Soy sauce
  • Dark fruit juices
  • Smoking

Remember that drinks can be especially problematic because we tend to sip them continuously. It’s a lot like bathing your teeth in dye.

Tips For Maintaining A Bright Smile

  • Limit your teeth’s exposure to strong pigments.
  • Swish with some water after consuming any of the foods or drinks listed above.
  • Brush, floss, and visit us regularly!
