4 Ways To Prevent Red Wine From Staining Your Teeth

October 5, 2015 by Ella Cajayon
shefinds | Style

Let’s face it, us wine lovers have to compromise our pearly whites in order to unwind with our favorite drink. But as someone who is a die-hard red wine or no wine at all girl, I didn’t want to believe there had to be this ultimatum between having white teeth or drinking my wine. As it turns out, if we’re smart about it, we don’t have to decide between one or the other. I can’t wait to try these tricks and I’m here to share them with you!

1. First things first, brush your teeth.

This is something that needs to happen before you start to drink, not after! When you see your teeth stained purple after drinking you would think out of instinct that this would be the best time to brush it off. But please don’t! Dentists have said that brushing your teeth immediately after drinking wine can actually hurt more than hlep you, because it damages your tooth enamel with wine’s high acidity. This will make your teeth super sensitive to abrasion. So instead, it’s best to just brush your teeth an hour or so before drinking a glass of Merlot.

2. Cheese + Wine = Forever + Always

As it turns out, there’s actually a logical reason behind pairing cheese and wine together. Eating cheese will help calcium build up on your teeth. It’ll also close the tiny micro-pores on the surface of your teeth. Long story short: cheese makes it way more difficult for wine to stain your teeth. So it’s a win-win! We also suggest sticking to hard cheese with your wine, because it actually has more calcium.

3. No white wine before, you must commit!

Time to pick your side. Are you team white or team red? Because the worst thing you could do is try to have the best of both worlds. The reason why you can’t start off with white wine before drinking red is because the acidity from white wine will erode your enamel, which will act like a primer causing the red wine tannins to be more vulnerable to sticking onto your teeth.

4. If nothing else, wipe it off.

So apparently wine wipes are a thing. One, whoever invented this is a genius and two, it’s an easy fix! Try these wine wipes, and have a reason to smile after that bottle of wine you deserve every time.
