FOOD ITEMS that can stain TEETH

The Hitavada - - NEWS -

PROPER oral hy­giene is the only way to a beau­ti­ful smile, but don't ne­glect cer­tain food items that can cause teeth stains.

Gu­nita Singh, Cos­metic and Laser Den­tal Sur­geon at Den­tem, The Den­tal and Orthodon­tic Clinic, and Tan­vir Singh, Orthodon­tist, Sir Ganga Ram Hospi­tal, have shared a list of food items that can change the colour of teeth for worse.

Cof­fee: It might be help­ing you to stay up, but the acid polyphe­nol in it is stain­ing your teeth. Tea: Tea stains are worse than the cof­fee stains. All types of tea - black, green or white tea, stain the teeth.

Wine: White wine has an acid con­tent that tends to in­crease the risk of dark den­tal stains.

Bev­er­ages: They are re­fresh­ing, but the acidic na­ture of that fizzy drink is erod­ing your enamel and also the bright smile.

Curry: Again, amaz­ing for taste­buds, but bad for teeth.

Bal­samic vine­gar: It is used for sal­ads, but it has also a neg­a­tive as­pect. Its dark nat­u­ral colour sticks to teeth.

Berries: The anti-ox­i­dant prop­erty gets a thumbs up. The same can't be said about its dark hue that af­fect teeth.
