ATLANTA, GA, October 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Everyone loves their morning coffees, but nobody loves the stains those coffees leave on their teeth over time. Norcross Dental Associates, provider of affordable cosmetic dentistry in Atlanta
, knows that you can drink your coffee and have white teeth too--so long as you make an effort to prevent the stains.
Stains from coffee come from the polyphenols that naturally occur in coffee. The Norcross dentist team has found that these molecules help to bind staining compounds to your teeth while simultaneously protecting your teeth from coffee's acidity.
The best way to reduce or prevent coffee's staining power is to lessen your teeth's contact with these polyphenols. You can do this by drinking coffee from Arabica beans, which have fewer polyphenols than Robusta beans, or by using a brewing method, like cold brewing, that helps to limit polyphenol extraction. You can also drink coffee with high fat animal milk, which binds with polyphenols and helps to neutralize their ability to bind with your teeth.
If you are still having staining issues, the Norcross dental
experts at Norcross Dental Associates recommend that you consider using a straw to drink your coffee. By drinking coffee with a straw aimed at the back of your throat, you can reduce the coffee's contact with your teeth and thus limit its staining power.
If you aren't a fan of drinking coffee through a straw, you may receive the most benefits from occasionally receiving a professional teeth whitening treatment. Occasional cosmetic whitening sessions can help to remove accumulated coffee stains and keep your smile bright and white.
