(Newser) – Nothing ruins a smile more then a set of filmy yellow teeth. Newsweek says you can keep your set sparkling by avoiding these habits:

  1. Constant coffee or tea sipping—stains teeth.
  2. Frequent snacking on sweets—increases the decay-causing bacteria in your mouth.
  3. Not drinking water after a meal—water washes away bacteria.

  1. Munching on sticky or chewy candy—a recipe for cavities.
  2. Not eating enough fruit and veggies—can lead to infected gums.
  3. Chewing sugary gum—it's terrible for your teeth; however, sugar-free gum is an excellent after-meal cleanser.
