Question: I really love drinking red wine. Do I have to give it up completely to keep my teeth from being stained or is there anything that I can do after drinking red wine that will keep my teeth from getting messed up?
Answer: There’s something that you can do immediately after drinking red wine and that’s brush your teeth immediately. That certainly will help. It won’t eliminate the degree of stain that can occur after drinking red wine. Should you cut it out all together? Absolutely not. Everything in moderation. Certainly if you plan to bleach your teeth, I would cut it out for the time in which you’re bleaching the teeth and probably for a week thereafter, even after you’ve completed whatever treatment it is that you’ve had done. That’s really important.
