Is Coffee, Tea Or Wine Worse For Your Teeth?

Chances are you drink either coffee, tea or wine on a fairly regular basis. Given the pigment of each of these drinks, they are more likely to stain/tint your teeth a yellowish color. Obviously, that is not a good look for anyone. Out of the three, though, which is worse for your teeth?

Great news for tea drinkers! Tea is not nearly as damaging as coffee or wine. While black tea can stain your teeth, green and white teas are a way better option. If you want to drink black tea, try drinking it through a store so it doesn’t touch your teeth.

Coffee and wine are both highly acidic, making them enemies to your pearly whites. The acid in coffee and wine break down the enamel on teeth that leads to discoloration over time. Instead of brushing your teeth right after drinking coffee or wine, simply swish around water in your mouth. If you brush immediately after drinking, you’ll just spread around the acid and make the problem worse.
