Seasonal Celebrations Staining Your Smile?

Friday, December 6th, 2013, 5:53 pm

“Tis the season for celebrations and we all want to look our best. Could your celebrating be staining your smile?

As we age, our teeth naturally yellow. What we eat and drink can make this discoloration worse and, unfortunately, this time of year we seem to partake of these substances a little more often.

The top troublemakers for your white smile that most people think of are smoking, red wine and coffee. But did you know that white wine also stains teeth? Here are a few more items that affect your smile:

  • Sports drinks
  • Juice drinks like cranberry or grape juice
  • Energy drinks
  • Soda
  • Tomato sauce
  • Berries
  • Tea

Some of the things on this list have health benefits like berries and tea. You don’t need to skip your berry fix, just remember to brush a little while after eating. Sodas, sports drinks and energy drinks should be avoided because of the high acid and sugar content. Avoid staining by using a straw when drinking brightly colored juices or iced tea.
