Just got your teeth whitened? If you want your newly whitened teeth to stay white, there are some foods you should avoid! Various foods stain teeth more than others.
Some of the main foods to stay away from include: wine, soy sauce, and blueberries.
Some foods help scrub your teeth while you chew. These include: firm fruits and veggies like apples, green beans, carrots, cauliflower, carrots and celery. These foods also promote saliva which neutralizes acids on teeth and helps protect them.
Some foods can help teeth stay white. These include: dairy products such as cheeses. The lactic acid in dairy products can help prevent decay. Harder cheeses can also help remove food particles from teeth.
Other foods to avoid include soft drinks and tobacco.
