I remember when I was at the dentist a few years ago and they showed me pictures of slightly yellowed teeth. They said that drinking tea for five years would result in slightly yellowed teeth and drinking coffee for five years would result in a little bit more yellowed teeth.

But you know, it’s a doctor, right?? Who cares if my teeth are yellow, as long as they’re healthy. The GP doesn’t tell me how to avoid getting a saggy ass, they help me with health issues 🤣

Sorry for the boring story I just remembered it when brewing a cup of tea.

      If I cared about my teeth color at all… I’d have each one painted a different color. A customizable RGB veneer would be a blast. Extra bonus if it could run videos (😁😄😁😄😁😄…)

      haha taking iron, not pills, but in liquid drop form will immediately stain your teeth brown. But I think that is only temporary.

    I drink tea every single day and have since I was a child. My teeth are…bone colored? I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all. I mean, I’m using my teeth. I’m not going to limit what I eat and drink, or pay money, to make my teeth look completely unused and brand new. A lot of people are really into that, though. It’s creating weird beauty pressure for the rest of us, which I hate.

    The huge amount of coffee and tea I drink (supplemented on the weekend by cola with alcohol) is why I really love those professional teeth cleanings :D
