Are you a coffee lover? Or you cannot miss tea time every morning or afternoon? Well yes, most of us can’t live without a daily dose of coffee to jump start the day, but could the beverage that puts morning smiles on our faces also be making those smiles less brilliant?
We all know coffee tastes good, but are you aware of how it affects your teeth? Most everyone knows that coffee stains your teeth. That’s the most common way it hurts your teeth.
But did you know that coffee is acidic, so it also causes enamel erosion? Although the enamel of your teeth is the hardest substance in the human body, it is not flat and smooth. On the contrary, your tooth enamel contains microscopic pits and ridges that can hold particles of food and drink.
Pigments from dark-colored drinks such as coffee, tea, and soda can become embedded in those cracks and ridges and, if the proper steps are not taken, can cause permanent, yellowing or browning stains on your teeth.
Teeth are very porous and will soak up anything that you eat or drink. Coffee or tea or other colored beverages also cause bad breath because it sticks to your tongue. However, a good thing that coffee can do is destroy plaque bacteria!
The caffeine in coffee is high in polyphen which breaks up bacteria. However, if it stays on your teeth for too long it can erode your teeth. The catch also is that the polyphen will only help if you drink black coffee! Adding sugar and creamer harms your teeth even more.
Giving up coffee, tea, or other tooth-staining beverages is the best way to prevent the staining caused by those drinks, but for most people, this is not an acceptable solution.
Rather than abstaining, try to consume your coffee at specific break times, rather than sipping constantly throughout the day. After finishing your coffee, you can then rinse your mouth out with water or brush your teeth to remove the potentially yellowing pigments from your teeth.
Using a whitening toothpaste and brushing regularly is a good way to maintain whiter teeth at home. In addition, visiting your dentist’s office for regular cleanings can remove many of the surface stains on your teeth, giving you a whiter smile, no matter how many cups of coffee you need to make it through the day.
