‘Tis the season for festive delights that can bring lots of joy but might also dim our smiles. Indulging in your holiday favorites like mulled wine, cranberry sauce, sweets, and cocktails can stain your teeth. 

Foods and drinks that are highly acidic or contain dark pigments can break down tooth enamel and discolor your pearly whites. Basically, if something can stain your clothes, it can do the same to your teeth.

But that doesn’t mean you have to avoid these festive treats completely.

To savor them while keeping your smile bright, try using straws, drinking water throughout the day, or brushing about thirty minutes after consuming them. 

For stubborn stains, visit your Houston, TX dentist for professional teeth whitening treatment! Our in-office application offers immediate results to give your smile a radiant holiday glow in time for a brand-new year.
