Teeth vs. Coffee

Often, the battle lines are drawn between indulging in your coffee habit, and maintaining a white, pearly smile. For many, it isn’t an easy option choosing between white, confident smiles and an early morning coffee habit.

Even though enamel is one of the hardest substance in the human body, it can be susceptible to staining. Enamel is a hard, solid flat smooth surface. but it is also porous.  These porosities and craze lines can allow for substances to get into these hard surfaces and, over time, alter the color of the teeth.

Coffee is not the only substance known to stain teeth. Most substances that are known to discolor teeth contain tannins, also found in tea and wine.  A good rule of thumb is that if something will stain your clothing it will stain your teeth.  Please give Robert Rosenfeld DDS a call if you want to keep those pearly whites pearly white.  

Actions to Avoid Stains

Abstaining from coffee is always one option in maintaining white teeth; however, for many this is unrealistic. Without giving up coffee, here are a few ways you can reduce discoloration to your teeth and keep your smile happy and healthy:

  •      Drink coffee through a straw
  •      Brush or swish with water immediately after your cup of coffee
  •      Don’t sip on coffee over time (drink in one sitting)

With these tips and tricks, you can still indulge in your favorite beverages while not forfeiting white teeth. Again, this doesn’t fix everything so it is also important to speak to Dr. Rosenfeld to find out other options there are for keeping your teeth white.

"As good as it gets is correct!  Dr. Rosenfeld and his team are no-ka-oi!  He is a caring and kind professional with a bit o bend toward perfectionism.  The latter being a good thing when it comes to one's teeth.  At 58 he filled my first EVER cavity.  I was a bit nervous not having had that procedure ever before.  Dr. Rosenfeld took the time to make sure the area was numb to minimize my discomfort.  We agreed I probably needed a little more so he administered two more doses.  No discomfort whatsoever.  Toward the end of last year, I needed my first ever cap to repair a fissure in one of my molars.  This is where the perfectionism came into play - Dr. Rosenfeld made sure the cap exactly matched the color of my teeth. Dr. Rosenfeld is a marvelous practitioner!  I've recommended four friends to him and they all love him and his incredible team."

"Dr. Rosenfeld is the best! I’ve been going to him for 10+ years now and he’s been nothing but caring and an excellent dentist to me. He really makes a point to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole appointment. He even gave me lip balm during working on my cavity to make sure I was as comfortable as possible! When I come in, I feel nervous and dreadful but Dr. Rosenfeld somehow always has a way of leaving me with a smile when we are done. Not that i will hope for another cavity though, of course."

"Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff are absolutely AMAZING.  I have a fear of dentists and dentistry, but Dr. Rosenfeld and his outstanding team went the extra mile to make sure that I felt comfortable, reassured me that they would do anything and everything to take great care of me, and never made me feel anything but a very valued patient.  I never knew that an office would go so far to help me get through some challenging (at least for me) dental procedures.  Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for this office.  If only all businesses could provide the same level of customer service..  Oh, did I forget to mention that their work is top notch.  Worth every penny!"
