- Brush your teeth an hour or so before drinking. The dyes in red wine will stick to your plaque.
- Skip the white wine. If you plan to drink red later, avoid white wine, which will “prime” your teeth for the coating of color.
- Take regular sips of sparkling water to rinse the purple-gray colors away. This will help prevent staining. You can also eat high-fiber foods to “chew” away your red wine stains.
