Keep Your Smile Gorge This Memorial Day Weekend! Drink Teeth-Friendly Vodka!
Dear Red Wine,
Why do you have to be so delightfully yummy + dastardly sinister for our pearly white choppers at the same time?
Look, let's be honest: You. Me. We're all gonna be knocking back a few over this upcoming long weekend. Amiright? Course I am.
Well, while you're doing so, why not put the best interests of that gorgeous smile of yours first? Like maybe don't drink anything that causes them to turn un-awesome colors.
To help you figure out which cocktails are teeth-friendly and which aren't, I'd like to present this adorable chart from a deeply kick-ass crew of New York mega-dentists: Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor.
I've known Marc Lowenberg and Gregg Lituchy for decades, and have used them frequently as resources for stories I've written for tons of different magazines + publications. Most recently, I chatted-up Marc when I wrote a piece for Town & Country about getting braces again at the not-young age of 50-Something. He also gave me his opinion on a new-fangled super-sonic toothbrush for a story I wrote for The Wall Street Journal about some of my favorite beauty devices.
But back to teeth, and cocktailing.
As promised here's that crazy-useful chart.
Keep it in your beach bag, beauty!:
