See How Drinking Wine Affects Your Dental Health

Brushing your teeth right after drinking white wine really does a lot of damage to the teeth.
This includes wine like champagne, red wine and even rosé. Drinking wine is known to erode the enamel and this is as a result of the acids present in wines that are able to work themselves deep into the tooth base.

With white wine and stains from other foods and beverages are highlighted and come on stronger giving the urge to want to brush the teeth but this comes with more harm than good!
If you brush the teeth immediately after drinking white wine or red or any other acidic drink for that matter the enamel is eroded instead let the teeth be for about 45 minutes to an hour before trying to clean it to allow it 're-mineralize'.
Instead, opt for swishing the mouth with water in between drinks, when you swish the mouth with water in between drinking, the acid present in wines won't settle on the teeth and if you still want to go ahead to brush afterwards, you can do this as well but to be safe, do this after 30 minutes!

It is important to maintain a healthy dental lifestyle. Follow the tips above whenever you drink wine to keep your dentition health.
