Which Drinks Can Discolor Your Teeth Most?If you are keen on maintaining a bright smile, then proper hygiene is quite indispensable. However, apart from appropriate dental health, it's also essential to watch what we drink and eat.

Certain beverages can quickly discolor our teeth. If you want the brightest teeth possible, then make sure to avoid as many of these beverages as possible.


While tea is healthy for our bodies, it might not be an excellent choice for someone keen on keeping their teeth white. Research has found black tea to be more problematic than coffee. Lighter teas are still able to cause stains, but they are also more acidic and can damage the enamel of our teeth.

Sports Drinks

Apart from tea, another common culprit that is sports drinks. Studies show that acidic beverages and meals can also impact our teeth. Energy and sports drinks can erode the enamel on our teeth. Instead of consuming sports drinks, we highly encourage you to consume water instead after intense workouts.


If a drink can stain a tablecloth, then it can also stain the enamel of our teeth. Known for its dark, vibrant, and acidic nature, red wine is one of the varieties that can easily stain teeth. Apart from red wine, white wine also can discolor your teeth, since it's more acidic in comparison to red.

Carbonated Drinks

Another drink that you should avoid is anything carbonated. Soda is a great example of a carbonated beverage that cause teeth discoloration due to their acidic nature and dye content. The flavor and chemicals also can eat away at our enamel.

While it's essential to avoid the drinks discussed above, it's also necessary to have your teeth examined from time to time. Visit us as soon as possible so that we examine your teeth and determine whether your perfect smile is at risk.
