http://www.DrMohanty.com Prevention is better, and cheaper, than cure – so it’s best to keep away from the 6 worst teeth staining culprits.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit #1 Coffee and Tea

http://www.DrMohanty.com We all love a good cup of coffee or tea, but if you readily drink several mugs every day, the tannin chemicals will cause your teeth to turn yellow.

http://www.DrMohanty.com If you really love coffee or tea, try and limit your intake to one cup a day, avoid black tea or coffee and opt for milk-based choices.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit # 2 Fluoride Water

http://www.DrMohanty.com Fluoride is a chemical element found in water and was popularly thought at one time to be good for your teeth.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Nothing could be farther from the truth.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Fluoride-containing water actually causes serious dark brown staining over the years and has been actually banned in several countries.

http://www.DrMohanty.com If your home supply of water comes from a well, make sure you have it tested for fluorine levels.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit #3 Cigarettes

http://www.DrMohanty.com Cigarettes are one of the worst teeth staining culprits not only because of the staining effect of tobacco leaves, but also because smoking is such an addictive habit that many struggle to break.

http://www.DrMohanty.com In addition, chronic smokers have deep, dark stains that are difficult to remove with over-the -counter products and often require more expensive professional treatment.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit #4 Wine

http://www.DrMohanty.com Wine is another tooth staining culprit due to the dark purple color from the grapes used in production.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Dark wines such as reds are obviously more liable to stain your teeth compared to the clear white wines.

http://www.DrMohanty.com If you regularly enjoy a glass of wine, make sure to swish out your mouth with clear water to reduce the staining effect.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit #5 Sodas

http://www.DrMohanty.com Dark colored sodas contain food colors that stain the teeth so it’s best to drink colas moderately.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Always use a straw to reduce contact with your teeth, try and choose light colored or clear sodas and rinse out your mouth with clean water afterwards.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Culprit #6 Processed Foods

http://www.DrMohanty.com Processed foods are choke- full of chemicals and food colors to make them visually appealing and mouth wateringly tasty.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Yet these artificial substances are also teeth staining culprits.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Not convinced?

http://www.DrMohanty.com Take a good look at your teeth after eating a packet of chips or other crunchy snack.

http://www.DrMohanty.com No doubt their color will resemble that of the snack you have just eaten.
