Drinks such as black coffee, tea, colas, and dark colored fruit juices will really stain your teeth. Treats like popsicles and lolipops that make your tongue change color will inevitably stain your teeth. Not to mention all that sugar, especially those colas and colored juices, open up the porous surface of your tooth enamel and make stains easier to adhere - and can you say cavities?
Sauces like tomato, soy and balsamic vinegar stain your teeth. Blueberries, beets and curry also stain. Not that they should be avoided completely - these foods give you important nutrients and antioxidants. Try eating a salad before the main meal. Lettuce and spinach naturally form a protective film over your teeth and help keep stains away.
Brush your teeth after every meal. Use a whitening toothpaste. Colgate Total is the best overall toothpaste on the market. For a quick and inexpensive whitening I suggest Plus+White. You can get it at any pharmacy or supermarket and it really does work.
The best thing is to whiten your teeth naturally by watching what you eat and keeping your teeth clean and flossed. Using too many whitening products will eventually cause sensitivity and tooth enamel loss. Healthy teeth = fabulous smile.

Also the crest whitening strips works wonders on my uncles teeth and to keep them looking that good brush with a toothpaste such as colgate white which has whitening ingredients in them.
