Many people become aware of smiling because of the color of their teeth. In addition to giving you a beautiful white smile, the lining of your teeth also helps prevent dental problems, including cavities. But how do you prevent those yellow spots? If you want that pearly white smile, you have to give up some food and drink. Yes, there are certain foods that make your teeth look yellow. Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee suggested 7 foods that do more harm than good for your teeth in an Instagram post.
She said that teeth whitening is a popular option, but you have to remember that the whitening products use chemicals to whiten your teeth. So she mentioned an easy and tangible way to prevent tooth discoloration, and advised her followers to avoid these foods.
Black coffee: Who doesn’t like to start the day with a shot of espresso? But here’s some bad news for coffee lovers. Coffee is number 1 on the list of foods that stain your teeth.
Tea: If you’re considering replacing your coffee consumption with tea, it’s in vain. Tea also leads to unsightly teeth stains if consumed regularly. Avoid black tea and choose green, white or one of the herbal teas, which are also healthier.
Red wine: A glass of red wine is said to have countless health benefits. But Anjali argues that the acids in wine cause rough spots, which further cause grooves that discolor the teeth.
Coke: The expert suggests that even dark sodas are harmful to teeth because of their discoloring color.
Golas and Slushes: Summers without golas? Not done, but these ice-cold drinks create a perfect plot for food dyes that cause tooth stains.
Tobacco: Smoking or chewing tobacco is associated with many serious health problems. In addition, tobacco causes dark brown or black stains on the teeth due to the burning of coal tar.
Soy sauce: Flavorings like soy sauce, which make your noodles and pasta richer, can also stain your clear teeth.
So, which of these foods are you willing to avoid from now on?
