Foods That Stain Teeth

I have noticed that more and more people are concerned about the color or brightness of their teeth lately.  One thing I recommend is that after eating (or drinking) anything that will stain or discolor your teeth - rinse your mouth with water (or swish it around and drink it).  After 30 minutes, you can brush if you want to clean them up even further - Do Not Brush right after eating (or drinking) anything that will stain or discolor your teeth - rinse first with water.  Another recommendation is to TRY to drink anything that will stain your teeth through a straw - you may be able to bypass your teeth and prevent any discoloration - here is more info about staining foods from Women's Health today.
