Drinking green tea can cause lasting discoloration, but it is possible to reduce staining by developing healthy oral care habits.
At home, simple things such as :

-brushing your teeth regularly can help.
-Brushing twice a day is good, but brushing immediately after you drink a cup of tea is even better.
