Which Foods Discolor Teeth?

There are three common factors that contribute to food related tooth discoloration – chromogens, acidity, and tannins. Chromgens are intensely pigmented molecules contained in food and beverages that latch on tooth enamel. Highly acidic food and beverages are capable of eroding and staining teeth by facilitating the latching of chromogens. Tannins are a group of phenol compounds found in plants that we mix in with certain foods, which are known to enhance the ability of chromogens. Generally speaking, the more intense the color of a food or beverage item, is the higher the risk that it stains teeth. The top foods and beverages that cause tooth stains include:

  • Wine

  • Tea and coffee

  • Dark soda

  • Berries

  • Sweets and hard candy
