Learn Which Foods to Avoid For Whiter Teeth

As a general rule of thumb, remember that any foods and beverages that will stain your shirt will discolor your teeth as well. Red wine is a common culprit; instead, choose white wine. Darkly colored teas can also stain your teeth; consider switching to chamomile or green tea instead. Other common foods that stain the teeth include tomato-based sauces, black licorice, and red wine vinegar.
