Prevent Coffee Stains On Teeth

As of writing this, technology and coffee have never been better. Our modern society is on the way to perfecting every process that we do. The paradox is, as humans we will never be perfect; including our teeth with coffee stains.

There is no sure fire way to have your teeth that perfect pearly white shade. Although, there are some steps that can assist with keeping your teeth from turning to mud.

1. Drink Coffee, Followed by Water

After drinking your masterpiece of a cup of coffee that you created, drink some water. Swishing some water in your mouth will help wash away the residue coffee stains that could be sticking around.

2. Use A Straw

This may seem a little far-fetched, but drinking coffee with a straw can reduce the total coffee that contacts your teeth.  You may look funny, but at least your teeth won’t.

3.  Brush and Floss After Coffee

Follow your coffee break with a brush break. Brushing your teeth after coffee can help get rid of the remnant coffee stains that sticks to your teeth.

4. Avoid Cream

Adding cream to your coffee can add tannins (a yellowish or brownish bitter-tasting organic substance). Tannins are what cause coffee stains on teeth, not the color of the coffee. Aditionally, cream has sugar. Sugar can increase the amount of plaque that stick to teeth and creates something for tannins to hold onto your teeth.
