Is Coffee with Creamer Less Likely to Stain?

Posted on 3/25/2017 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak

Many people think that adding creamer to coffee is going to lessen the coffee's ability to stain your teeth.

After all, lighter color means less damage, right? Unfortunately for coffee drinkers, the answer is no.

The tannins that are in the coffee is what are going to stain your teeth, not how deep the color of your coffee is. If you want coffee that isn't as likely to stain your teeth, there are a few things that you can, however.

Decreasing the Likelihood That Coffee Will Stain Your Teeth

If you want to lower the chances of coffee staining your teeth, there are a few things that you can do to help.

First, keep your teeth clean. By keeping the fuzz of plaque off of your teeth gives those tannins less to hold on to. This means they are less likely to hold on to your teeth long enough to cause a stain.

Second, make sure you see your dentist every six months like you are supposed to. This helps to keep the plaque down on your teeth, which also could enhance stains.

Third, drink your coffee through a straw. If you drink your coffee normally, the coffee covers your front teeth with each sip.

This means that you are far more likely to wind up with stains. By using a straw, you are able to bypass this part of your mouth, thus decreasing the potential staining that coffee can do.
