Coffee, hot chocolate and tea are common hot drinks that stain your teeth. We want to share with you some tips on how to keep your teeth white while enjoying to sip hot drinks.
Drink Water Between Beverages That Stain Your Teeth
Continue enjoying your warm beverages in moderation by drinking water in between. Water will help rinse away dark liquids from the teeth and is good for your overall health. Try alternating your sips of coffee with water. As a bonus, your coffee or other hot beverage will last longer!
Use A Straw
You might have heard that you should drink through a straw. Sipping through a straw reduces the amount of liquid that your teeth come in contact with. No straw? No problem. Drink through the little stir stick from the coffee shop.
Brush Your Teeth After
The longer the drink stays on your teeth, the more intense the stain will be. What we recommend? Carry a small toothbrush and toothpaste so that you can quickly freshen up.
Floss, Floss and More Floss!
This one is often overlooked. Plaque attracts stains to your teeth. By flossing regularly you are reducing the amount of plaque and overall reducing the amount of stains. If you don’t floss you might notice stains around your teeth even if you brush regularly.
Use Whitening Products
There are many whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. If you frequently drink dark beverages switch to these specialized formulas. There is even a sugar free whitening gum that can help remove stains!
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Another way to whiten your teeth when you are time sensitive or are just ready for the pearly white smile is to have a professional teeth whitening treatment. Whitening your teeth can be completed in as little as one hour. You can walk away having the smile you always dreamed of.
