If you’re a connoisseur of the grape, so to speak, you would know that in addition to all the good things wine has to offer, it doesn’t have to be red to cause stains on your tooth enamel.
Alas, white wine can also create rough spots and grooves that enable staining chemicals in tea, coffee, and other beverages and foods to penetrate deeper into your tooth enamel. Even so, red wine, long known to stain teeth, should still be seen as more hazardous to whiteness because it contains chromagen, a richly coloured substance.
Still, you don’t need to stop enjoying wine in moderation. The best way to prevent staining caused by wine, and coffee or tea for that matter, is to rinse often, brush regularly, and ask us about our dentist-supervised teeth whitening procedure and products.
