Kuulpeeps, Y’all are always changing products or sticking to one toothpaste because you want those white teeth.
Sometimes you just want your teeth to be white just to impress bae.
Then, if you stay clear of these food items, chances are you’ll get your white teeth and you wouldn’t need a lot of brushing to maintain it.
Below is a list of items you must give up to have those pearly whites:
Lemon and lime are very acidic and can erode teeth enamel. This reveals yellow tissue below the surface, hence the appearance of yellow teeth.
It’s the tannins in red wine that cause staining. In addition to causing that all-too-familiar dry-mouth texture of the wine, they also bind to the teeth, encouraging the pigment to latch on.
Even a brew has been blacklisted. ‘Tea causes teeth to stain worse than coffee, and it’s due to tannins again, which latch on to teeth. What’s more, the darker the colour of your tea, the greater the chance of staining.
Your favourite Friday night takeaway might taste great, but ‘the tasty yellow spices in curries can be harsh on teeth thanks to their strong pigmentation,’ says the expert. ‘A curry should be a rare treat – your teeth will thank you.
All fruit juice can cause discolouration but richly pigmented fruits like cherries or berries are the worst culprits. In addition, fruit juice is packed with sugar, which can boost bacteria in the mouth, leading to more dental damage.

Tomatoes are highly acidic and brightly coloured, so tomato sauce and ketchup can cause staining and enamel erosion. With this, you probably have to give up the ketchup. We know tomatoes are in everything we eat here… lol
It goes great with roasted Tilapia, sure, but it’s not so top for your teeth. Soy sauce is said to be one of the worst offenders for staining teeth because the dark colouring of soy can linger long after your meal is over.

Even if you’re able to stay away from these food items, you’re going to need your Close Up to brush at least twice a day.
