Preventing Tooth Stains from Wines
A glass of wine after a long day can help you relax and unwind. Unfortunately, it can also leave unsightly stains on your teeth. While you may not be able to prevent all stains, you can take cautionary steps to reduce the likelihood of staining, without having to give up your favorite vino.
1. Wine straws
These straws allow the wine to bypass your teeth, which can reduce the amount of contact your teeth have with the staining chromogens in the wine.
2. Wine wipes
After enjoying your wine, use these special wipes to simply wipe the stains away, before they sink too deeply into the teeth. Just one swipe will remove all residues.
3. Smart sipping
Snack on some cheese with your wine. Cheese can help cut the acidity of the wine and rebuild your teeth, which can help reduce discoloration. You can also rinse with water right after drinking to further dilute the acids and help rinse away any stain-causing substances.
If conservative steps are ineffective or fail to give you the results you need, you may be a candidate for in-office or at-home professional Teeth whitening.
