Why Red Wine Can Stain Your Teeth

Drinking red wine frequently may be at odds with keeping your teeth white and bright. There are certain substances in red wine that can stain your teeth over time, and you won’t be able to remove this type of discolouration by brushing alone. Here’s why red wine can have this effect on your pearly whites.

Key takeaways:

–   This drink contains chromogens, a type of microorganism that attaches itself to the teeth’s enamel and causing stains.

–   Red wine has a high amount of tannic acid, an antioxidant that works with chromogens to attack the enamel and give a dark-coloured shade to your teeth.

–   Because the enamel is naturally porous, drinking red wine frequently can lead to discolouration.

It’s a good idea to eat when you drink wine — and to have a glass of water afterwards, as this will act as a buffer against stains. If your teeth are already stained, your dentist can restore them to their natural shade with a professional whitening treatment. In any case, don’t forget to brush and floss daily, especially if you are a red wine drinker.
