Most of us take vbery good care of our teeth, visiting the dentist regularly, and brushing and flossing often.2

Some of us may even have invested in braces or teeth whitening.

I know i just can't seem to get my teeth white enough!2

When I complined to m dentist about this, he asked me about the foods I eat and the beverages I drink, and sure enough, a lot of them were staining my teeth!

Yikes!

So here's my list of the seven foods my dentist told me to avoid so I could have whiter, brighter teeth!

1. Coffee

But I love coffee, don't you?

Unfortunately, it's one of the worst culprits, staining teeth even if you have just a little.

If you can't stay away from it entirely, try swishig with a mouth rinse after, or just plain water.

2. Tea

Not tea, too!

If I can't have coffee, I should at least be able ot have tea!2

Green or white teas, or just herbal infusions (called teasans) won't stain your teeth, but black teas will, so avoid them if you can!

3. Chocolate

Well, I won't be giving up chocolate any time soon, but at least now I'm aware that it might be staining my teeth.

If yo want whiter teeth, and don't mind giving up a treasured, favorite indulgence, my dentist recommended avoiding chocolate, too.

4. Blueberries

The juice and skin of blueberries is a natural semi-permanent dye, so it follows that if you eat many of them, your teeth will be stained.

The good news is that the staining isn't permenent.

The bad news is that it's...

5. Colas (even Diet!)

Colas (like Coke and Pepsi) are another horrible teeth staining agent.

Not only that, they're loaded with sugar, acid, and all kinds of other things that can wreak havoc on your teeth and gums.

If you want whiter teeth, avoid colas for sure!2
