Prosecco

A glass of Prosecco con­tains a rel­a­tively low num­ber of calo­ries, but den­tists warn that reg­u­lar drinkers are at risk of ‘Prosecco smile’. Pro­fes­sor Damien Walm­s­ley, sci­en­tific ad­viser for the Bri­tish Den­tal As­so­ci­a­tion, says, ‘Prosecco of­fers a triple whammy of car­bon­a­tion, sweet­ness and al­co­hol, which can lead to sen­si­tiv­ity and enamel ero­sion.’ But brush­ing your teeth after you drink it can make things worse. Prosecco is acidic and weak­ens tooth enamel, so wait a few hours for your enamel to har­den be­fore brush­ing.
