There are a lot of tasty sugar foods available out there, and it can be very tempting to eat that chocolate, but those foods can cause stain in your teeth enamel. Some drinks like tea, wine, coffee, and soda can also cause staining in your teeth. Though if your concern is not about teeth whitening, I will still suggest you to limit (at least cut down) soda from your diet, for they will cause more harm than good to your general health.
If you really need to drink or consume it, make sure you cut down the portion to prevent staining to your teeth. Another way to prevent the beverage from getting contact with your teeth, you can drink with a straw.
Aim to brush your teeth at least twice a day. For better result, you can extend it to three times a day. If possible, brush after fifteen minutes of every meal. Use toothpastes that have whitening ingredients in it. Whitening toothpastes contain peroxide that can help improve your teeth brightness by one shade. It contains mild abrasives that can help remove stains in your teeth. Example of whitening toothpastes is AP24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste of NuSkin.
