Los Angeles Dentist asked: "Is white wine bad for your teeth?"

Q: I’ve heard that red wine can stain your teeth. Is white wine better for your mouth?

A: Some darkly colored foods – like coffee, tea, blueberries, soy sauce, colas and red wine – are notorious for staining your teeth. But while white wine may seem like it would be much less staining than red wine, it turns out that white wine can also cause stains. White wine contains tannins and acids, corrosive substances which can etch the surface of your teeth.

If you’re going to drink white wine, be sure to always rinse your mouth with water to help prevent any damage.
