4 Bad Habits that could be Ruining your Smile.

{Collaborative content} One of the first things that people notice about you is your smile, that’s why it’s your best accessory. If you have a great smile, it boosts your confidence and immediately puts people at ease when they talk to you. But if you have stained teeth and you are afraid to show your smile, it can really knock your self-esteem. It’s common for people to have problems with their teeth at some point in their life, but if you find that you constantly have stains on your teeth and you can’t do anything about it, you may be making some common mistakes. These are some of the bad habits that are ruining your smile. 



Smoking
Smoking is one of the worst things for your smile. You already know that it’s terrible for your health and it leads to all sorts of diseases, but did you realize that it was staining your teeth as well? Most people that smoke will have yellow stains on their teeth that are impossible to get rid of unless you give up. If you are struggling to quit, you should consider getting an e cigarette and some e liquid and switching to that instead. That will make it easier to transition and eventually quit altogether. Once you have given up cigarettes, you can get some special toothpaste that is designed for ex smokers, and that should help to get rid of the stains.

Drinking Too Much Coffee
Most of us like a cup of coffee to keep us going throughout the day, and that’s fine. But if you are drinking too much coffee, it could be staining your teeth a horrible brown colour. The good news is, there are some simple things you can do to avoid this. First off, just cut down on the coffee. It’s not good for you to have that much caffeine anyway, so cutting back isn’t a bad thing. Secondly, you should sip water after drinking coffee to stop it from staining your teeth.

Drinking Fizzy Drinks
Fizzy drinks are packed full of sugar, so it’s no surprise that they’re no good for your teeth. Even if you get the diet versions, they still leave a layer of acid on your teeth which eats away at the enamel and leaves stains. You’re much better off drinking water instead. It’s better for your health in general and it won’t ruin your smile.

Drinking Too Much Red Wine
The occasional glass of wine never hurt anybody, but you might want to consider going for red instead of white next time. Red wine is very dark in colour and it can easily stain your teeth, especially if you drink it on a regular basis. However, the stains that you get from red wine come from wine sticking to plaque on your teeth, so if you make sure to brush properly before drinking wine, you can avoid it.

These bad habits will all cause staining on the teeth and completely ruin your smile, so make sure that you stop doing them right away.
