Coffee Stains on Teeth: How to Get Rid of Them This Summer

Blog Post

Do you love coffee but hate the way it stains your teeth? You're not alone. Coffee is a major cause of tooth discoloration, but there are steps you can take to get rid of those stains and show off your pearly whites this summer.

What Causes Coffee Stains?

Coffee contains tannins, which are natural compounds that can bind to the enamel on your teeth. Over time, this can lead to staining and discoloration. Other foods and drinks that contain tannins include black tea, red wine, and dark berries.

How to Prevent Coffee Stains:

The best way to prevent coffee stains is to brush your teeth regularly and floss daily. You should also avoid drinking coffee right before bed, as this gives the tannins more time to stain your teeth. If you do drink coffee, try to drink it through a straw to minimize contact with your teeth.

How to Remove Coffee Stains:

If you already have coffee stains on your teeth, there are a few things you can do to remove them. One option is to use a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash. These products contain ingredients that can help to break up and remove stains. You can also try our professional teeth whitening treatments. These treatments use a bleaching agent to lighten the color of your teeth.
