Why does Coffee stain Teeth?

Tooth stains from coffee are caused by a lot of polyphenols found in coffee which stick to the outside of your teeth. Quite ironically, polyphenols can offer protection against acidity in the mouth, but balance is key!


Limit Coffee Stains on Your Teeth like a Boss:

  • Add full-fat cow milk to your coffee – Animal fat has the ability to bind polyphenols. So Soy milk is not an option here.
  • Choose dry processed coffee beans – Anything else has more polyphenols.
  • It’s all in the brew Certain brew methods can extract polyphenols. It also extracts the caffeine, unfortunately. So if you need your kicker in the morning, this is not for you.
  • End with pure water – Rinse your mouth with water after your cup. This helps to rinse anything sticking to your teeth and reduces acidity which creates bad breath and dental decay.
  • Use a straw – Who is looking anyway? This will help reduce contact of the coffee with your teeth. Just pretend it’s normal.
  • Use an electric toothbrush – Studies show that electric toothbrushes remove more stains than normal brushing. It also decreases the chances of using to much pressure when you brush manually as this can cause receding gums and periodontal diseases.
  • Whiten your teeth! – Use Cocobaci Oil Pulling daily for a brilliant smile. The chemical-free stain removal is simple to do at home and takes great!

Another great fact about oil pulling is that it can get in where brushing and flossing can’t. The oil molecules are minute and can help dislodge any stain-causing pigments or food particles without sensitizing your gums or enamel!
