Everyone wishes to have a nice smile and to have pearly white teeth! But in order to have those flashy pearly teeth you need to take good care of them, brush after every meal, floss, make regular dental appointments and few other things.

There are few food products that leave nasty stains on your teeth and make them go yellow, and that’s why you need to make sure you brush your teeth really good after eating these foods! In this article we are going to name few of them.


-Berry fruits. Yes, they are really tasty and full with vitamins and other important nutrients, but they also contain a lot of color pigments which make them leave stains on your teeth after you eat them.

-Beetroot. It’s really healthy and everyone should include it in their diet, but you know what kind of stains it can leave on your clothes? So you can imagine what it will do to your teeth. Brush your teeth after eating beetroot!


-Balsamic vinegar. Very high in color pigments, and it’s full of acid! Try and reduce the amount of balsamic vinegar you consume by using it only in salads and cooking with it.

-Pickles. Most people love pickles and enjoy them with a nice sandwich and stuff. But what most people don’t realize is that they are doing damage. The sour taste of the pickle is the same thing that could be wearing down your tooth enamel. The acid in the pickles can erode your enamel and cause staining.

-Coffee and tea. A lot of people can’t imagine starting their day without a cup of coffee or tea. Excessive drinking of these beverages will cause staining on your teeth. The pigments from the coffee and tea leave a yellow stain behind if you are a regular consumer.

-Ketchup and tomato sauce. Tomatoes are high in acidity levels and combined with their red color are a big factor in causing stains on your teeth. So use it in moderation in order to prevent enamel eroding.

Just make sure you brush your teeth at least 3 times a day, and take all foods in moderation!
