Which foods can turn teeth white?

Knowledge Which foods stain teeth?

Colorings in food - even in healthy ones - can have a significant effect on the appearance of our teeth. Usually for the worse by leaving an unattractive veil of color. These foods make our teeth particularly "dark": Red wine, white wine, coffee, tea (not just black tea, also green tea, rose hip tea, chamomile tea, rooibos or iced tea ...), cola, fanta (any sugary soft drinks), tomato juice, a number of fruits such as aronia berries, blueberries or Black cherries, grape juice, spices such as saffron, soy sauce, curry, turmeric, balsamic vinegar.

Dark teeth: even more facts

  • White wine stains our teeth even more than red wine! Reason: white wine dissolves more calcium from the deeper tooth layers.
  • For drinks, a good marker of the “ability” to discolor teeth: the trace that the drink leaves on the edge of the cup or glass - the darker the residue, the worse it is for white teeth.
  • Of course, smoking is also a bad tooth stain.

and that is (s) t good for white teeth!

There are also foods that either have a neutral effect on our teeth or their ingredients stimulate the flow of saliva in the mouth or strengthen the tooth substance - which is basically good for the teeth and also helps them to stay white and healthy. These include:

  • Apple, carrots, lemons, oranges, pineapples, green vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, spinach, yogurt, milk, cheese, ginger, mint, nuts, sesame, fluorine-containing water

Tip: A glass of water after meals will help neutralize your mouth. This also weakens the discoloration of unfavorable foods.
