Can Happy Hour be Damaging to your Teeth?

There’s nothing wrong with sipping a glass of wine or two, but there is more than one reason for you not to drink too much wine during your Happy Hour. While it’s common knowledge that the pigments in wine cause discoloration to teeth, a recent study had shed light on another downside to too much wine: tooth decay.

Researchers from the Australian Dental Journal found out that even a minute of tasting 10 or more wines can do much to soften the tooth’s enamel. Though the study’s main focus was wine tasters, wine drinkers have the same risk too, especially when they consume wine over and over.
