Food particles are attracted to your tooth’s enamel through naturally occurring proteins. Many items, like coffee, red wine, tea or berries are famous for staining teeth. Over time, the natural effects of aging and products like caffeine and tobacco wear the outer layer of the enamel away. Your teeth actually become more absorbent and prone to staining from food and other substances.
