Bright Eyes, Dull Teeth?
Whether we’re getting our morning jolt of coffee or enjoying a spot of tea, these popular pick-me-ups can tarnish our pearly whites.
Coffee and tea are notorious for staining.
Coffee, in particular, is very acidic leading it to wear away enamel. This can result in your teeth having a dingy appearance.
Although giving up your coffee or tea habit is the best way to avoid the darkening of your teeth, it’s usually not an option as many people rely on this popular daily practice to get through the day.
Instead, consider rinsing your teeth or drinking water after consuming either beverage and limit drinking coffee or tea throughout your day. Using whitening toothpaste and brushing regularly can also go a long way when it comes to limiting stains and keeping your smile brighter.
