Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Houston Dental Financing

This post from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX looks at the risks posed by those ubiquitous sports drinks. Many health-conscious people drink them regularly for hydration during workouts.

While it’s true that they help maintain electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel erodes, those pearly whites can become stained, discolored, and full of decay.

Nobody wants darkened teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.

If you have already noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to do something about it, cosmetic dentistry can help! Consider professional teeth whitening. We offer the KöR® bleaching system, which can brighten your smile in a single office visit.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we have brightened countless smiles with teeth whitening. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to us for dental implants, and much more. Request an appointment today!
