We already know that there are many natural ingredients which are used for teeth whitening but do you know that some foods can make your teeth yellow? So we must say that you should avoid those foods if you want to have dazzling smile. Sugars are very harmful especially large amounts contained in sweets like in hard candy. Not only they contain sugar which we all know is bad, but they can also damage the tooth enamel or even break a tooth. This list of foods is extremely harmful for your teeth:
Ice – Although in the summer, ice is our favorite additive in different drinks; its direct consumption can increase the tooth sensitivity, which leads to their faster impairment. Rather than keep it in your mouth, wait until it is more dissolved in a glass.
Alcohol – Alcoholic drinks will dry your mouth which is the cause of many oral infections and diseases.
Citrus fruits – extremely healthy, but excessive consumption of citrus fruit can damage tooth enamel. To prevent this you can drink a glass of water after consuming these fruits.
Caffeine drinks – Our favorite drink – coffee. It cannot damage your teeth, but inevitably gives them yellowish color. It can be removed, but this condition can get worse by adding too much sugar in your coffee.
Carbonated beverages – Many people love Coca-Cola but this beverage contains a lot of sugar. If you consume it in large quantities, many bacteria that feed on sugar will develop in your mouth.
Dried fruits – Dried fruits have similar effect on teeth as candy. They are rich in sugar which stays on your teeth longer than the remains of other foods.
