White Wine vs. White Teeth

Here’s another reason to reach for a bottle of red instead of white.

Experts say imbibing in a glass of chardonnay or pinot grigio (my fav) on a regular basis can damage your teeth.


Apparently white wine is more acidic than red and erodes enamel more.

If you know you won’t be able to stay away from the whites, grab some cheese.  These same folks say eating calcium rich cheese at the same time could counter the wine’s eroding effects. (yet another reason to love cheese, yes!)

But before swearing off white for red, remember, red wine can stain teeth.

So as they say…drink responsibly!
