3 Foods to Avoid for Whiter Teeth
- Posted on: Oct 15 2017
Nothing can quite make you look better and more presentable than a mouth full of newly whitened teeth. If you have recently had your teeth professionally whitened by Dr. Ramin Mahallati at Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry, then you know just how great your results are. However, because your teeth can easily become stained following your whitening treatment, it’s important that you refrain from consuming the following three foods and beverages. Read on to learn more.
As probably the most obvious thing for you to avoid when you want to have white teeth, coffee can quickly and easily stain your teeth. In fact, by even drinking one cup of coffee a day, your teeth are going to look significantly more yellowed and stained than if you only had one cup per week. Additionally, because coffee is very acidic, it can also cause enamel erosion which can weaken your teeth overall.
Although tea is a drink that is considered to be very healthy for your entire body, try to refrain from drinking black tea. Black tea leaves are notorious for staining teeth and can cause your newly whitened teeth to look dingy and tattered. To still get great health benefits of drinking tea, try drinking green tea instead. Green tea is filled with antioxidants which can help increase your brain functionality and protect you against certain types of cancer.
If you are big into things like pizza, caprese salad, or spaghetti, then this food might be a bit hard for you to avoid. However, because tomatoes are high in acidity and due to their color, they are also another food that is notorious for causing your white teeth to lose their sparkle.
If you have recently had your teeth professionally whitened by Ramin Mahallati, it’s important that you do your best to avoid them from turning yellow once again. And although things such as whitening toothpaste and pens, and drinking water after eating and drinking will help keep your teeth white, by avoiding the above food and beverages altogether, you can help to have the whitest smile ever.
