A doctor’s recent warning about the damage the delicious bubbly goodness prosecco can do to your teeth has many of us wondering: What is even the point anymore?
Sugar is apparently toxic and makes your skin floppy.
Carbs are supposedly everyone’s back-stabbing best friend because.
Butter and cream and cheese make you worry about your arteries.
Surely (surely!) sweet, innocent, exotic prosecco was our one saving grace – immune to such horrible research and logic?
Dr Mervyn Druian, of the London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry, has dubbed it the “prosecco smile” and says this form of bubbly is wrecking havoc on our teeth.
“Unlike wine, which you often have with a meal, it is very easy to just keep sipping prosecco and have a few glasses without noticing,” Dr Druian told Independent. “If you drink too much of it you are going to have a problem. [It can trigger] tooth decay which can lead to fillings and dental work.”
