Helping with stained teeth

Why do teeth stain?

Stained teeth can be caused by drinking coke, coffee and tea, or consuming stain producing foods such as red wine or blueberries (!). Also nicotine is a main cause of staining.

Plaque deposits as a result of not brushing correctly or flossing can also cause stains.

Biting on hard objects can cause microcracks which will rapidly stain and are hard to clean.  

How do you stop staining teeth? 
  • Limit the amount of coffee and tea
  • Avoid smoking
  • Have regular visits with your dentist and hygienist
  • Brush and floss properly
  • The use of some toothpastes can help to remove minor stains
 

Next time we will be talking about ways in which we can help to remove stains.
