    Drink and Rinse

    Several drinks like coffee, tea and colas stain your teeth, reducing the whiteness. Avoid foods and beverages that may stain your teeth. If you want to consume such products, try to minimize their contact with your teeth. Use straw to drink such staining beverages. However make sure that you immediately rinse your teeth after drinking a staining beverage. It will minimize the damage.

    Oranges

    The fruit offers abundant supply of citrus acid which can easily wear off the enamel from the teeth making them look whiter. However too much of citrus can cause harm by removing too much of enamel. So it would be best to drink orange juice only once in a while. This way you can have white teeth along with tasty nutrition.

    Milk

    Milk is friendly with our teeth. Its high calcium content strengthens our teeth, making the enamel healthier and whiter. However remember that nothing is good for teeth if it sticks to them for long. Brush or at least rinse your teeth after every glass of milk.
