Once again, a good-for-you substance is doing a number on your smile, although apparently only the low-budget versions cause an unsightly tint. Says Maddahi, “Poor-quality green tea is actually more staining than coffee, penetrating the teeth even more deeply and creating more yellowing.”
That doesn’t mean you need to go without; just make sure you consume only a high-grade, top-of-the-line tea, like Mighty Green Tea. Also, when possible, drink any dark liquid -- whether it’s tea or coffee -- through a lid with a small hole, instead of an open cup, to minimize the amount of the staining fluid that hits your teeth.
