It is often so tempting to have that extra glass of wine or cup of coffee without thinking about staining your teeth. Here are some simple steps you can follow to keep your pearly whites-WHITE…

Use a Straw

Sip sodas, coffee, teas, dark wine, and dark juices through a straw. This can prevent these surface area stain causing drinks from being in contact with your teeth. It is also a good idea to limit sugary drinks as much as possible.


Moderation is the key-eat top teeth staining foods such as: blueberries, beets, tomato sauce, and soy sauce in moderation. After eating these foods, rinse your mouth out with water, or rub a wet napkin over your teeth. Better yet, brush your teeth within 20-30 minutes after eating any of these foods (if possible).

Whitening Your Teeth

The best way to keep teeth stains away is with the help of your dentist. Most dentists offer a quick one-hour whitening treatment. If this isn’t an option, you can purchase professional whiteners from your dentist.
