Myth: Drinking coffee through a straw will keep my teeth whiter and breath fresher

Straw Coffee

This is not necessarily true. Many people do believe by sipping their lattes and cappuccino’s through a straw will get the coffee to pass their teeth and protect the enamel preventing stains. At the very most you might be reducing the rick of stains, but you are not eliminating it.

One thing to consider is that sucking on a straw is no different than sucking on a cigarette – it causes those unattractive aging, smokers lines. By drinking through straws you are forced to purse your lips, which strengthens the muscle and causes your lips to crease and with age skin thins and loses elasticity. Do yourself a favor and ditch the straws. If you’re worried about stains and fresh breath, go for a Quickee. And no, not that kind of quickee… Get your mind out of the gutter! A Supersmile Quikee is the anytime, anywhere no brush/no rinse whitening tooth polish that helps to freshen breath on the go and is small enough to fit in your pocket or a clutch.
