Afterwards, in order for your teeth to remain as bright and as white as possible, you will want to be sure to avoid some of the common causes of teeth stains. Having stained and yellowed teeth can make you look older, since teeth naturally yellow with age. There are foods and habits that you can avoid that will help your teeth to remain waiter and brighter longer. Cigarette smoking is one of the leading contributors to tooth staining. If you are looking for another reason to help you to quit smoking, remember that smoking will cause your teeth to look yellowed and stained faster. There are also certain beverages you will want to avoid. Cola sodas and brightly-colored sports drinks can contribute to tooth staining. Drinking coffee and tea will also make your teeth look stained, as well. If you want to drink just one of these beverages you are better off drinking coffee, since it will not stain your teeth as badly as drinking tea will. You will also want to avoid all wines. Although berries are extremely healthful and delicious to eat, you will also want to avoid eating berries, or at least eat them in small quantities. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries all contribute to tooth staining. You will also want to avoid eating brightly-colored candies that can stain your teeth, as well.
