Q:Does coffee actually stain my teeth?

A: Although you can’t see them, there are tiny cracks and holes that line your enamel. When darker drinks like coffee, tea and cola seep into these cracks they can stain the teeth, turning them yellow.Some solutions include drinking a glass of water after a cup of coffee to rinse away what could become future stains or using a whitening toothpaste when brushing.If you’re interested in reversing the effects of the staining, both our Garden City and St. Vital locations offer Phillips Zoom! Whitening. Our staff and dentists can help find the right solution to whiten your smile - contact us today to find out more.
