Red Wine and Coffee Can Significantly Stain Your Teeth

Posted .

A smile says a lot about you. Even if you have your teeth professionally whitened, your staining issues will recur without addressing the underlying cause. That is why our team is here to help you discover what could be causing your teeth to stain.

Stains form on your teeth, when particles of dark food and beverages adhere to and sometimes penetrate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel. Even if you have dental veneers, these dark particles can develop minor surface stains, which do need to be adressed.

Because they are so dark, beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine easily promote stains on the teeth in your smile. Eliminating or cutting back on coffee and red wine, will go a long way towards preserving your bright white smile.

However, many other things can cause your teeth to become dull. Medications, foods, and even aging can cause your teeth to need a whitening treatment. If you do want to enjoy these beverages on occasion, you might want to try drinking them through a straw.

We strive to give you the smile you have always wanted. If you have any questions pertaining to your oral needs, let us know and we can adress those questions for you. To learn more about how to preserve your white smile, you can call Stephen Huber at 913-543-3751.
