Keep Your Teeth White Even When Drinking Tea
How Can I Keep My Teeth White & Still Drink Tea?
A predicament I’m often in – Especially with Homemade Chai Tea!
I love to drink tea!!! It’s probably my favorite beverage right after water…
…But I model and often have close ups on my teeth…They have to be white too!
What Do I Do?
Well, a little known fact is that you can put a bit of milk in your tea – that’s all you need.
Why Does This Work?
Well, it’s the tannins in your tea that cause your teeth to discolor. Milk binds with the tannins and actually, coagulates them, making them unable to settle on your teeth.
Isn’t that fabulous? Yes!!!
However, if you drink your tea with lemon in it, don’t put milk or cream in your tea because the lemon will actually curdle your milk or cream and cause chunks in your tea that are really not aesthetically or texturally pleasing.
Also, be sure to brush your teeth after you’re done drinking your tea to ensure any tannins leftover won’t stain your teeth.
If you’re a tea drinker, it’s also important to floss because tea stains don’t care what surface of your teeth they discolor. When the in-between surfaces of your teeth get stained it makes your teeth look a lot less white too. Be sure to floss regularly!
