Love Coffee? Here’s How to Keep Your Teeth White

For many people, the biggest encouragement to get out of bed is that freshly brewed cup of coffee. With a reviving smell and invigorating caffeine hit, morning’s become much easier! While it’s easy to love coffee, the staining and discolouration it can do to your teeth is not so straightforward.

Rather than accept that drinking coffee will dull the brightness of your teeth, there are steps you can take to keep your beautiful smile without forgoing that delicious morning brew. 

Learn more about how to keep your teeth white as a coffee-lover, and how professional teeth whitening in Stirling can help boost your confidence while rejuvenating your pearly whites.


Why does coffee stain?

Both caffeinated and decaf coffee are full of tannins; a naturally occurring plant compound that binds the dark colour to your teeth. While tannins are a large part of why coffee tastes rich and delicious, it seeps into pores resulting in staining. 

Also found in red wine and black teas, tannins are so powerful they’re used in dyes for cotton and linen. They also contribute to the acidity of coffee, which can wear down enamel over time. 

While coffee does have healthy antioxidants to strengthen teeth and fight gum disease, heavy coffee drinkers may desire teeth whitening in Beechboro to remove stain build-up


Dental care tips for coffee lovers

The good news is that with consistent oral health care, there’s no need to forgo that daily cup of joe.

  • Rinse your mouth or brush your teeth after every coffee, lifting tannins before they set in
  • Brush and floss twice daily – good oral hygiene has the capability to prevent severe discoloration
  • Drink coffee through a non-plastic straw, preventing the dark liquid from touching your front teeth
  • Book regular dental visits for thorough cleans, where plaque is removed and your teeth are polished to remove surface stains. Ask your knowledgeable dentist about safe whitening toothpastes for home use.
  • Utilise expert teeth whitening in Stirling to efficiently lighten discoloured teeth and brighten long-term staining – a safe smile transformation tool!
