    Kombucha or bacon turning my teeth black?

    Shop Now
    I don't know why, but lately ALL my teeth seem to be taking on a black-gray stain. I also looked into doxycycline being fed to my TJ's bacon, but I didn't immediately find any connectons. I just moved into a new home with a well. It has a trace of lead in the water, like .005 if I recall, but it might have been .0005. Maybe my kombucha is freeing up the metals in my water and they are binding to my teeth when I drink the bucha. Anybody have any ideas or other possible contributors? It really seems to be related to the kombucha, because I often notice it right after I drink the stuff, and it mostly rubs off but some seems to be staying. Didn't happen before I moved here.

    I guess I could brew my kombucha with water from the artesian spring nearby for awhile and see if that fixes it...

    I don't know the answer, but I was intrigued by the question as my biggest weak spot, health wise, is dental.

    I found this, hope it helps somehow: What is black line stain on teeth? - by Lisa Fillers - Helium

    I suppose it's possible that I have high iron. The numbers at the blood bank were never high, but it's been awhile. I'll check my iron and see.

    Do you use black or green tea when you make the kombucha? Black tea is a known teeth stainer. Well green tea too, but not nearly as badly as black tea.

    I don't know how much you're drinking, but it might be that simple!

    It could also be your iron levels as was previously suggested, but, I somehow doubt that. Remember, the simplest explanation is most likely the cause!

    I use green tea! But, going with simplicity, I do know it's the actual drinking of the tea that coats my teeth. So iron is probably outed. It's just that I've been making kombucha for a very long time, and ths blackening has only happened after I moved into the new house.

    I don't think it's the iron. I have hemochromatosis, and at diagnosis had several times more iron in my blood than a normal person. But I never had any problems with black/gray teeth, just with yellowing ...

    My dentist noticed right away when I switched from drinking Mt. Dew to Lipton black tea... not b/c the sugar content was different but because my teeth started staining. It took a long time for me to notice it, but now my teeth have this icky yellow staining to them.

    As for a black staining... I haven't the foggiest... but if it comes off easily, maybe just brush your teeth between Kombuchas to prevent it from staining permanently until you figure out the true cause.
