Avoid Or Minimize Your Consumption Of Certain Foods And Drinks
It may be hard for you to believe because your teeth seem like impermeable bone, but the fact of the matter is that they can pick up pigment from certain foods and drinks; this will over time lead to staining that noticeably changes the color of your teeth.
Avoid smoking tobacco or drinking coffee, tea, and wine. If you must consume these beverages, make sure to rinse or brush your teeth after you are finished. Better yet, use a straw to drink them so they pass by your front teeth without making contact.
