Reader’s Digest provides several tips to help prevent teeth from staining without giving up coffee, stating that “brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste and seeing your dentist for regular cleanings are the best ways to prevent ugly coffee stains.” In addition, Reader’s Digest recommends flossing regularly, drinking through a straw to minimize how much coffee comes in contact with teeth, drinking water to “wash away staining liquids,” and drinking coffee quickly to reduce how long teeth are being exposed to the staining culprit. In addition, the article suggests chewing sugar-free gum, noting that “according to the American Dental Association, chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes after eating can help prevent tooth decay.”
MouthHealthy.org provides additional information on teeth whitening and chewing gum to prevent dental caries. In addition, several whitening toothpastes and a whitening product have the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA also provides a list of sugar-free gum brands with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
