Having crooked teeth can impact how stained your teeth are from Coffee and Tea! | Zenyum MY

Almost everyone enjoys a cup of coffee or tea every morning without giving a second thought to how it affects our teeth.

Did you know that coffee and tea are highly pigmented drinks that can cause our teeth to have noticeable stains over time? It may get us going throughout the day but can’t make our teeth any whiter. If you know one thing about Zenyum is that we talk a lot about how your crooked bite can affect the way you care for your teeth. 

Today we are reaching out to caffeine lovers to share the ‘tea’ on coffee and dental health since it is International Coffee Day!

But why would my teeth be stained?

There are so many types of drinks that can cause our teeth to be discoloured this is all because of an ingredient called tannin. Tannins are an organic substance found in plants and are in dark coffee, black tea, and even wine.

One rule of thumb is that if it can stain your clothes, it’ll stain your teeth. Even your daily bubble tea does not keep you safe from teeth discoloration; some black teas can cause more staining than coffee! Read more about teeth stains and discolouration here.

Crooked teeth are difficult to brush!

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again – having straighter teeth makes it easier to brush and prevent any type of build-up in your mouth.

When it comes to drinking beverages that may cause our teeth to stain, having a good oral care routine can minimise discolouration. However, different bite problems such as misaligned teeth make brushing and flossing difficult since it is harder to reach in our teeth crevices.

How to prevent tooth discolouration?

We’re not here to tell you to give up drinking coffee altogether because we totally understand the daily ‘wake me up’ effect it has. 

There is still some good news for Teh Ping and Kopi lovers, here are some ways you can lessen the damage:

Fun Fact!

Did you know that you should avoid coffee or tea if you wear metal braces because they can leave bracket stains on your teeth? The discoloration may not be obvious when you’re wearing your metal braces but once you remove them – it is a whole other story!

Since Zenyum Invisible Braces are removable, taking care of your teeth after drinking coffee or tea makes it so much easier. You don’t have to worry about your smile looking dirty during or after your treatment.
