Here’s how to prevent your teeth from becoming discolored

5. Limit your tea and coffee consumption

Coffee, tea and red wine have a few things in common. They are all three liquids, and all contain tannins. These chemical compounds in the drinks attack the tooth enamel, which means that your teeth can turn yellow. Try limiting your coffee, tea and red wine consumption.

6. Chew gum

When you chew gum, you produce saliva, which neutralizes the acids in your mouth. Moreover, the chewing movements also remove food particles from your teeth. For happy teeth, chew sugar-free chewing gum.

7. Eat raw vegetables

Eating raw vegetables as a snack is not only extremely healthy, but it is also good for the color of your teeth. Crispy vegetables act as a sort of solvent for plaque on your teeth. So, you’ll fill your stomach and clean your teeth at the same time. Win win!

8. Kissing

Kissing really? Yes. With kissing, you exchange saliva with your partner and that is very good for your teeth. Your partner’s saliva can neutralize the acids in your mouth and vice versa. A nice side effect is that it is also good for your immune system, as long as your partner does not have a cold or other illnesses at that time.
