How Does Wine Stain Your Teeth?

Wine is infamous for its ability to stain teeth. While you might not notice any difference after one glass of wine, the damage becomes apparent after several months or years of regular drinking. Here is how drinking wine regularly affects your pearly whites.

Key takeaway:

•Red wine contains chromogens. These are microorganisms that usually stick to teeth and cause the tooth enamel to stain. Chromogens are also present in coffee, tobacco and berries.

•Wine has been found to contain significant amounts of tannic acid which plays a key role in tooth staining. Some other foods that contain tannic acid include grapes and walnuts.

•Although our teeth are designed to resist damage, they are still very susceptible to staining due to their porous nature.

Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings to minimise staining and discolouration. Also, rinse your teeth with water after drinking wine.
