Keep Your Teeth Whitening Results Longer with Clear Coffee
White teeth and regular coffee consumption are two things that don’t go together for most people.
However, some good news may be coming for those who just need a cup o’joe in the morning. Clear coffee is a new trend, and it may be a great way for coffee addicts to keep their teeth brilliantly white and still get their caffeine fix.
Teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry solutions are no longer at risk of staining when you switch to clear coffee to keep your smile flawless for life.
Clear Coffee is Really a Thing!
The new bottled beverage, which goes by the trendy yet unpronounceable name of CLR CFF (or “clear coffee” devoid of vowels), was developed by two Slovakian brothers who were bothered enough by how regular coffee was staining their teeth that they came up with a recipe for one that lacks any color at all.
They won’t reveal exactly how it’s made, but say it took them three months to perfect the method and is “based on physical processing.”
They also claim it doesn’t involve any weird chemicals, stabilizers, sweeteners, or additives, and that it’s derived from freshly roasted Arabica beans. The only ingredients listed on its site are water, fresh coffee and caffeine, and a 200ml bottle packs 4 calories (a 200ml serving of regular black coffee typically has just 1).
As for how it tastes, opinions are mixed. According to the Evening Standard, the taste is “strong, like a potent cold brew,” while employees at Metro who tried it described it varyingly as “odd, but not unpleasant” and like “Water…but an aftertaste of coffee.”
It’s also a bit of a stretch to claim that it’s totally colorless, since it has a very slight yellow/brownish tint.
This cold brew coffee is currently available in two packs for about $7.50 in US dollars. That’s less than the price of Starbucks blends.
When it’s available in the US, we wonder how many of our coffee loving patients who struggle with yellow and discolored teeth will make the switch!
Professional In-Office Zoom! Teeth Whitening
We offer both in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening to transform smiles and deliver results up to ten shades brighter.
Many people try to get the results they want using store bought whiteners, but for the most part, low doses of whitening gel and poor application methods render these products ineffective. If you want to brighten your smile right away, in-office Zoom! whitening is a great option.
Using patented whitening gel and no heat activation lights, Zoom! teeth whitening gives patients dramatically brighter smiles in just about an hour.
Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Until clear coffee becomes an option in the US, patients can use take-home teeth whitening kits to regularly touch up their in-office whitening results and keep drinking coffee.
These kits combine custom crafted application trays and professional grade whitening gel to deliver the same results possible with in-office whitening over the course of a few weeks of daily applications.
Regular touch ups following in office treatment can usually be completed in just two nights of application a few times each year.
