1. Brush Your Teeth Before Drinking Wine

One of the reasons wine stains your teeth so well is because your teeth are absorbent. If you have food particles on your teeth, the red wine will stick to the particles and the particles will act like a sponge that’s stuck to your teeth. This causes the wine to rest on your teeth longer than it would if you were to have clean teeth. Brushing and flossing before you drink red wine can help prevent food particles from sticking to your teeth and wine from sticking to food particles.
