Trendy Pomegranate Juice Can Stain Teeth
Bronx, NY -- Health-conscious trendoids are hopping on a new beverage bandwagon: Pomegranate juice.
The bright red juice is being touted as a better source for antioxidants than red wine and, with daily consumption, a good way to reduce your chances of hardened arteries -- but it can be murder on your teeth according to one cosmetic dentist.
Academy of General Dentistry spokesman Dr. Howard S. Glazer says pomegranate juice can stain your teeth an even deeper shade than coffee or grape juice -- two common culprits for causing dingy choppers.
He says as little as two glasses of pomegranate juice a day could cause staining on normal teeth -- while caps, veneers and crowns are even more suceptible.
But there is a way to prevent it. Dr. Glazer says simply sipping the juice through a straw can keep the front teeth clear of stain-causing pigments.
