Los 8 pecados de los dientes blancos

The 8 sins of white teeth

This post is dedicated to all these clients who ask us, how can my teeth be yellow if I brush and rinse my teeth every day?

Many of the foods in our diet, even healthy foods, can damage our enamel, and as a consequence, the color of our teeth.

We start with the drinks

Coffee, the most feared

Coffee has many beneficial properties and even in terms of health, it does not harm the mouth or the enamel at a structural level. But on an aesthetic level it stains our teeth. The culprits are chromogens, small, highly pigmented molecules that have the ability to darken our enamel through the pores. The solution is very simple, but very useful. Drink coffee with a straw and try to rinse your mouth with water right after drinking coffee . If you didn't order coffee with sparkling water, now you're going to start doing it.

Tea, the first cousin of coffee

Leaving aside the distance, tea is much less pigmented than coffee, but the varieties of red and black tea are the ones that stain the teeth the most because they have more tannins.

The wine

Red wine has tannins and chromogens , so we can say that it greatly damages the color of our teeth. But it doesn't end here. Wine also contains acids, which are somewhat abrasive and weaken the enamel, allowing tannins and chromogens to penetrate even better.

Juices (artificial)

Sugar + industrial acids + dyes: a good bomb for teeth and enamel.


Carbonated soft drinks contain phosphoric acid. This acid is capable of lowering the pH levels of saliva. This is dangerous for our teeth, it weakens the enamel and at the same time increases the risk of cavities.

We continue with food

Fruits and vegetables

Some of the fruits and vegetables have intense colors, beets, blueberries, cherries, blackberries or raspberries, have strong antioxidants and pigments that can stain our teeth. However, strawberries, on the other hand, contain malic acid, which promotes saliva production and, at the same time, helps eliminate enamel stains.

Candies and sweets

It goes without saying that sugar is the worst enemy of teeth, since it is the main precursor to cavities. But at the same time, many of them use acids, which, as we have mentioned before, can damage our enamel. In addition, some use powerful dyes that can also stain our teeth.


Some sauces also have the ability to damage our teeth due to colorings and sugar levels. For example, ketchup is mostly composed of tomatoes, sugar (22g per 100g of product) and vinegar, an acid that weakens our enamel. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with consuming ketchup, but excessive consumption could affect your teeth.

In short, many of the foods mentioned are part of our daily lives and what is really important is the habit of brushing your teeth correctly after consuming them.

From DR. INUK we have developed whitening strips to restore the whiteness of your teeth in the most effective, practical and safe way.

Knowledge is power

We want our clients to be as informed as possible so that they consciously make their oral hygiene decisions.

At Dr. INUK we believe that oral health is vital to having iron health. And for this, it is vitally important to have the habit of maintaining good hygiene. For this reason, we create honest, accessible and simple products focused on simplifying the habits that really matter in oral health.

Why is oral health so important? Well, because it has been scientifically proven that the general health of the body is directly related bi-directionally to the health of the mouth. You can read more here.

Furthermore, in recent years, we have detected that most people do not like the experience of oral hygiene products and it is the main reason why people do not have the habit.

Our first product, Dr. INUK whitening strips , are formulated with Sodium Chlorite, which has whitening power, but also has the ability to eliminate bacteria that produce plaque from the surface of the teeth. This will help you whiten your teeth and keep plaque and, as a result, cavities at bay.
