Wake Up and Smile!
For many people, the idea of life without coffee or tea is a scary one, as these drinks have simply become a way of life and part of our daily routine.
154 million people, or 75% of Americans over the age of 20, drink coffee, and 159 million Americans drink tea. But this morning (and afternoon and sometimes late night) pick-me-up can come at the cost of your oral health. (1) (2) (3)
And not just a little bit. New studies are revealing that drinking coffee and tea can have debilitating effects on your teeth and overall mouth health.
Well, you don't need to worry about that cup of joe anymore, as new research is revealing NEW WAYS to prevent coffee and tea stains on your teeth and give you that bright smile you can be proud of.
In this blog we talk about the damage coffee can cause to your teeth, and how you can PREVENT COFFEE AND TEA STAINS FOREVER!
THE EFFECTS OF COFFEE
The first thing to know about coffee is that just about everyone drinks it. And they drink it a lot. As a matter of fact, the average person drinks over three cups of coffee per day.
And it doesn't end there. Coffee consumption is growing for everyone, as Americans under 40 have increased their coffee intake by almost half since 2015, while studies show people opt for coffee more the older they get. (4)
Unfortunately for your smile, though, coffee contains organic compounds called tannins, which are probably what you like about your coffee. In fact, tannins are responsible for the bitter taste and dryness associated with drinking coffee. (5)
FUN FACT: Tannins cause compounds to stick to your teeth, leading to teeth stains. ACTIVATED CHARCOAL assists in the whitening of your teeth, and can be found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (6)
One thing to remember about coffee and teeth stains that it all comes down to the small gaps (which are microscopic) on the enamel of your teeth.
Drinking coffee initially creates extrinsic stains on your teeth, and the longer the coffee is left to set there, the deeper the stain goes and the more likely it is that the stain affects other parts of your teeth, which can lead to intrinsic staining. (7)
And once those aforementioned tannins set on your teeth, your problems can just be beginning. In fact, plaque attracts tannins, which can lead to even more dental problems if your teeth are not cleaned away properly and quickly. (8)

TEA AND YOUR TEA-TH
Everyone knows coffee stains teeth, but many don't realize that tea actually contains a higher content of tannins than coffee does, and can quickly cause long-term teeth staining.
One other thing to know is that teeth staining isn't all coffee and tea can lead to. Coffee specifically can lead to an overgrowth of bacteria in your mouth, which can cause eroding, and for your teeth to become brittle and thin. (10)
FUN FACT: Using a straw can limit the contact tea and coffee can have with your teeth. Absorb the toxins in your mouth today with the ALL-NATURAL BENTONITE found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (11)
Now it's important to mention that all because coffee and tea can stain your teeth, that doesn't mean you should completely cut them out of your routine. In fact, green tea offers many benefits, such as the strengthening of your teeth and the killing of bacteria and viruses caused by bad breath.
One other way to prevent coffee and tea stains is by rinsing your mouth with MOUTHWASH after drinking, which can help cleanse your mouth and wash away any stains caused by your favorite drink. (13)
