At Gordon Dental of Leawood, we love driving around our city admiring our patriotic neighbors’ yards. The flags with their red, white and blue beautifully decorate and adorn our town with patriotic colors that remind us of our freedoms and those that have fought so that we can enjoy them.

During the 4th of July our menus usually display foods that are all-American such as hotdogs, hamburgers, Coke and popcorn! However, there are some foods that can actually steal some of your brilliant whiteness on your teeth. Try avoiding berries when you don’t have an opportunity to brush them soon after eating. Berries offer many health benefits, but they can stain your teeth as well. There are many drinks that have a tendency to stain your teeth. Drinks such as coffee, tea, sodas, and wine can cause stains due to their acidity. If you decide to enjoy pasta for your celebrations, be sure to eat some dark green veggies such as broccoli, kale and spinach beforehand. These power-packed veggies will create a protective film over your teeth to prevent that tomato sauce from staining your teeth.
