Oh no! White Wine Too?


It’s just not fair.

Everyone knows that red wine is one of the top teeth staining culprits out there…but WHITE wine too?

Studies out of NYU College of Dentistry have confirmed: white wine stains your teeth. The offender? Acid.

Acid which (deep breath) is in a plethora of colas, coffee, energy drinks, juices and tea. The study, led by Mark Wolff of NYU College of Dentistry, tested black tea, red wine and white wine and then followed it with black tea.  It was to no surprise that the red wine left a deep, dark stain on the teeth; black tea did not. But the teeth dunked in white wine and then tea turned a “nice shade of brownish red,” says Wolff.  The study showed that although white wine may not have much color, the acids are enough to damage the tooth enamel and leave it exposed to the coloring of the black tea.

Hold on…don’t hate us….there is more….

The research further revealed that acidic erosion isn’t just a problem with wines….Citrus Juice Drinks also contain acids that can erode teeth enamel as well as Cola Drinks….. and both leave them vulnerable to stains.
