It seems like every few weeks there is a new study released talking about the pros and cons of caffeine. One day coffee may be good for you and the next, no so much. One thing we know for sure though, is that drinking soda and coffee on a regular basis will damage your teeth.
The acids in coffee cause yellowing and staining, leaving teeth and dentures looking old and discolored. Similarly, the sugar in soda, along with damaging your waist line, eats away at the enamel on teeth leaving them dark and stained. Don’t think diet sodas are the way to go either. They may have less sugar, but citric and phosphoric acids are there causing damage.
Lucky for you and your morning latte, teeth whitening is one of the simplest fixes in cosmetic density. From custom trays made by your dentist and used at home or in-office services, there are various options available. Depending on the severity of the dental discoloration, treatments can take from a few hours to a few weeks.
