The issue of wine smile is obvious with red wine. You enjoy your favorite glass of red, head to the restroom only to gasp at your reflection when you see that dreaded purple hue on your lips and teeth. White wine is a less obvious culprit but can do damage to your tooth enamel and leave your smile dingy and yellow. If you're anything like us, you aren’t going to stop your wine consumption anytime soon. We investigated why white wine stains your teeth, and what you can do about it.
It turns out that white wine is more acidic than red wine and can have a detrimental effect on your tooth enamel. An article in Self Magazine explains that “that the higher acidity in white wine makes it more erosive to tooth enamel, making teeth more vulnerable to long-term damage and staining. Acid is what gives wine its crispness, something you'd typically expect in your Pinot Grigio, not Pinot Noir.” While the effects of red wine are obvious right away, the effect of white wine is long term.
Never fear. That’s why we invented WineBlock Wine Stain Preventing Lip & Teeth Balm. Simply swipe a dime-sized amount of our clear, all natural, plant-based formula to your lips and teeth before you drink red OR white wine, and you are protected from the embarrassment of wine smile or added tooth enamel erosion.
