|Drinking coffee is an essential daily ritual for many, one they don't want to abandon. However, even the most devout coffee lover might agree that the staining of teeth that comes with drinking it has made them reconsider indulging on this vital beverage.
Drinks and tooth staining go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to wine and coffee. Both of these beloved beverages can turn your pearly whites dull and unsightly.
Can I Have My Coffee and Drink It Too?You don't have to give up coffee to keep your smile bright and healthy, but there are ways you can minimize staining. One way of doing so is by drinking through a straw. Although this can be an adjustment for those who love to nurse a cup of coffee as long as possible, drinking through a straw simply diverts the closer to your throat, giving it less time to linger in your mouth.
Coffee brings us warmth and comfort, along with many different delicious tastes and aromas to choose from. If you love your coffee and you're committed to giving your teeth a little extra attention, staining doesn't have to ruin your smile.
