Those who drink red wine and coffee regularly have been warned that consuming large amounts of the drinks could lead to badly stained teeth which need cosmetic dentistry work.
Writing on the Bella Sugar page, one blogger said that as well as dark-coloured wine and strong coffee, some types of tea and fizzy drinks can also lead to stained and unsightly teeth.
However, the source noted that people may not want to go without their morning coffee pick-me-up or can of fizzy drink at lunchtime – so what are the options?
As well as undergoing cosmetic dentistry treatment such as teeth whitening or dental veneers, red wine and coffee drinkers should make sure they brush teeth well and use a whitening toothpaste. One designed to remove yellow stains from the teeth of heavy smokers could be ideal.
Also, occasionally swapping red wine for white could be worthwhile, and making sure dark-coloured fizzy drinks are consumed with a straw can help make sure the liquid does not come into contact with pearly whites.
