Many foods and beverages contain ingredients called tannins. Tannins are a type of polyphenol that break down in water, which cause color compounds to stick to your teeth. Once these compounds stick, an unwanted yellow hue can be left behind, causing your teeth to appear yellow and stained.
Tannins, chromogens, and food acids found in everyday food and beverages aid in food substances clinging to and weakening your enamel, leaving you with yellow-stained teeth. Your tooth enamel contains microscopic pits and ridges that can hold particles of food and drink.
Did you know that a cup of coffee per day can cause stained teeth? Coffee, like any other flavored drink, creates more acids that make teeth become thin and brittle over time.
Since coffee sticks to the tongue, it can also cause bad breath, or halitosis. Creamers and sugar speed up the growth of discoloring bacteria. Coffee is high in chromogens, and it's very acidic. Together, these factors help turn white teeth yellow over time. Nearly half of all Americans drink a cup of tea or coffee, daily. Tea is also a major culprit of teeth staining. It’s full of acid, it also has tannins which cause color compounds to more readily stick to your teeth.
We understand that some of us need our morning cup of coffee and/or tea, we’re not recommending that you give it up all together. Some of us would be zombies in the morning without it.
Instead of giving it up, we recommend teeth whitening sessions with Always Love Your Smile to reduce current staining and prevent additional staining with helpful tips and recommendations. Allow us to help you enjoy the occasional cup while maintaining a beautiful smile with white teeth.
Red wine has strong color pigments that instantly stain porous surfaces like your teeth. The acid and tannins contained in red wine, however, are major causes of teeth staining.
Wine is an acidic beverage – much like coffee, tea and soda – that makes it easier for chromogens to soak into your teeth because it promotes enamel erosion. Tannins also bind to your teeth, encouraging the red wine pigment to latch on and stain.
Don’t worry. You don’t have to stop drinking your favorite bottle of merlot or cabernet. After all, red wine has some health benefits, some of which include reduced risk of gum disease and tooth decay. It also may lower the possibility of heart disease and offer protection against Alzheimer's.
Before you enjoy that next glass, schedule a whitening session with Always Love Your Smile to reduce current staining and prevent additional staining with helpful tips and recommendations. Allow us to help you enjoy the occasional glass while maintaining a better smile.
Due to the nicotine and tar in the tobacco, smoking can make your teeth yellow in just a short span of time. Imagine what heavy smokers can get after years of regular smoking.
Nicotine and tar settle into the very small cracks in the enamel of your teeth, and cause discoloration. It has been shown that nicotine leads to a faster deposit of tartar and can cause bad breath because it contributes to the process of plaque formation.
Smoking can lead to a variety of health risk, including, gum disease. To improve dental health and reduce health risk, it is best to actively work on quitting the habit of smoking. Whether you’re a heavy smoker, occasional or former smoker Always Love Your Smile can whiten your teeth by removing staining caused by smoking; therefore, improving the overall appearance of your teeth and smile.
Many medications are known to discolor teeth, especially when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8). Mouth rinses and washes contain chemicals that can also stain teeth.
Antihistamines (like Benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and drugs for high blood pressure and other conditions also cause teeth discoloration. Patients have been told there is no hope for such staining. Always Love Your Smile has been very successful with helping remove staining from medications and treatments.
When you were a child, did you enjoy turning your tongue and teeth into a different color after eating candy? These food dyes can also cause stains. This is why it’s best to avoid brightly colored candy, ice pops, and sweetened drinks. Colored sports drinks aren't safe, either.
Food dyes are pretty aggressive coloring. Seasonings and spices, like curry, give many dishes their notorious flavors, but seasons and spices are also known to darken the coloring of teeth.
Soda is very acidic, while dark cola contains chromogens. People who drink soft drinks, like cola, energy drinks, fruit juice and carbonated beverages, may notice their teeth turning yellow over time.
Clear-soda drinkers also may get duller teeth because lemon-lime flavors contain acids, which make teeth prone to stains from other foods. Whether they're dark, clear, regular, or diet, all sodas have almost the same acid level.
