12 Jun HOW DOES COFFEE AFFECT TEETH?
Coffee is a substance that we all consume on a daily basis. There are studies that claim that more than 95% of the population consumes it at least once a day and 90% more than twice a day.
Have you ever wondered if coffee could damage your teeth? In today’s blog we will talk about the possible damages of this substance to your teeth.
The most significant change produced by the interaction of coffee on our teeth, is the change of color. Given its pigmentary characteristics, it generates a darkening of the natural whiteness of the teeth. Also decreases the natural brightness of them.
From SJD Dentistas we give you a series of guidelines so that you can correct these small alterations, being useful you should pay attention to:
- Decreases the amount of coffee intake per day.
- Once you finish drinking coffee, drink water, rinse your teeth. This will decrease the adhesion of the pigments on the tooth surface.
- Brush your teeth after drinking coffee as many times as you can. Prolonge brushing for more than two minutes so you can eliminate stains as effectively as possible.
If with these techniques you can not get rid of the color that has let you drink coffee, you can have a variety of whitening techniques both clinical and home. You can make clinical hygienic with polished spots, or use dental gels to mitigate this event.
