Many people look in the mirror and see yellowing teeth, but not everyone understands why. Recently, Los Angeles' ABC news affiliate reported on some things that may be staining those pearly whites, many of which may be surprising for some.
For example, while most people think that coffee is one of the worst things for teeth, apparently tea is more likely to leave stains. The news source states that substances in tea leaves are more likely to stick to teeth than coffee.
As the holiday season approaches, many common things around the family table may be causing your teeth to stain. The news provider spoke to Kourosh Maddahi, D.D.S., about some foods to watch out for.
"Maddahi says while coffee, tea and soda are a year-round threat to a bright, white smile, the staining effects of holiday foods like blueberry pie, cranberries and hot cocoa can stick around long after the season is over," according to the news source.
WebMD reports that people who are looking to whiten their teeth should try speciality toothpastes, home whitening kits and, of course, going to the dentist.
