These seven surprising foods apparently stain your teeth, so you might want to ease up your consumption of these goods:
Crackers: Bet you never expected this to be on the list, but most crackers are made of refined carbohydrates which turn into sugar and become a feeding ground for tooth-staining bacteria.
Pickles: This sour taste is actually acidic, meaning that it can erode your enamel and cause staining.
Berries: These juicy fruits are nutritious, but their richly colored pigments can stick to your enamel and leave a filmy coat on your teeth.
Coffee and Tea: You probably know this one already. Pigments in both coffee and tea can stain your teeth yellow.
Tomato Sauce: Tomatoes are highly acidic and brightly colored. Tomato sauce and ketchup can cause staining and enamel erosion. Balsamic Vinegar: It's deeply pigmented and full of acid. In other words, it's bad news for your teeth.
