Too Much White Wine Can Damage Your Teeth

white wineExperts say that consuming white wine frequently can damage your teeth, which many wine makers and tasters are aware of.

According to Nutritional Research reports, pale plonk packs an acidic punch that erodes enamel far more than red wine.

Teeth damage is due to pH and duration of contact with the teeth, but not due to wine’s vintage, origin or alcohol.

The German authors say that eating cheese at the same time can counter the effects, as it is rich in calcium. The wine attacks mainly the calcium in the teeth.

When adult’s teeth soaked in white wine in the lab for a day, the teeth lost both calcium and phosphorus to depths of up to 0 micrometers in the enamel surface.
