teeth-whitening-ChicagolandTop 5 Foods To Avoid If You Want Whiter Teeth
Seeing a yucky set of teeth is never a pleasant experience. Whether you are going on a romantic date or interviewing for your dream job, the condition of your teeth may have a major impact on the outcome. Believe it or not, the foods that you eat could be staining your teeth. Here are five foods to avoid if you want whiter teeth.
Coffee and Tea
Each day, millions of people wake up to sip a hot cup of coffee or tea. Unfortunately, these age-old liquids can have a very detrimental impact on the condition of your teeth. Coffee and tea contain strong pigments that leave very stubborn stains. Unless you want your teeth to look like a bunch of yellow corn kernels, you are advised to keep your coffee consumption to a minimum.
Tomato Sauce
Tomato sauce is one of the key ingredients in pizza and other Italian dishes. Although tomato sauce is very tasty, its acidic properties can erode the enamel that protects your teeth. Like tomato sauce, ketchup is also very acidic. If possible, limit the use of these food ingredients to once a week.
When the summer heat begins to kick in, there is nothing like a cold glass of lemonade to cool things down. However, teeth whitening Chicagoland specialists say that lemonade can cause the formation of cavities.
White Wine
For centuries, people have sipped on white wine to relax after a long workday. Although an occasional glass of wine will do no harm, the acid in white wine can roughen the surface of the teeth over time.
There is no denying the fact that the sweet smell of berry pie can be irresistible. Unfortunately, berry juice can cling to your teeth.
If some of these foods are your favorites, don’t worry, you don’t have to cut them out completely. The key is to have them in moderation. A beautiful smile is usually associated with good health and attractiveness.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
