Red wine and coffee ‘could lead to teeth whitening’

Thu

Consuming large amounts of coffee and red wine could lead to badly stained teeth which need cosmetic dentistry work.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.

Foods that can stain the teeth

Mon

Brits have been advised on some of the more unusual things that can stain teeth.

There are many foods and substances that can stain the teeth and New York dentist Dr Thomas Connelly has highlighted some of the worst offenders.

WCBS reported that Dr Connelly claimed cough syrup and chlorine from swimming pools can be particularly harmful to the teeth if they are not quickly washed away.

He stated that swimmers calculus is a particular problem, as this occurs when chlorine the water reacts with the tooth enamel causing a yellowing of teeth and dark stain discolouration.

“Lemonade, there’s some lemonade that’s made from straight lemons and sugars,” he said.

“There’s nothing worse for your teeth – straight acid and sugar.”

Elsewhere, C Health recently reported that many people falsely assume that stained teeth come about as a result of poor oral health and this is not always the case.

Indeed, the publication stated that smoking, bad diets and drinking large amounts of coffee or red wine are all high-risk behaviours for teeth staining.

The issues that can result is stained teeth have been highlighted.

Many people falsely assume that stained teeth come about as a result of poor oral health and this is not always the case, it has been stated.

C Health reported that over time, stains can build up under the surface of the teeth and these are best tackled through laser teeth whitening treatments, rather than bleaching.

Indeed, the other factors which can increase the likelihood of stains include smoking, bad diets, drinking large amounts of coffee or red wine and in general, failing to brush regularly.

The publication noted: “Besides being an instant bad breath cure, quitting smoking can improve the appearance of your teeth. For many people, tooth staining is one of the most common side effects of smoking.”

Elsewhere, Napsnet.com recently published advice aimed at individuals with sensitive teeth. It noted that they should remember four easy ways to reduce their problem.

These are ensuring they maintain a good oral health routine – ie brushing regularly – avoiding acidic foods, brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and using a desensitising toothpaste.
