RE-OPENING UPDATE:

We will be reopening the practice on Monday 8th June, however this will only be for urgent & vulnerable patients. These patients will be contacted and triaged accordingly. Please do not arrive at the practice without an appointment, as you will not be seen.


We also kindly ask that you avoid calling us for now, as you can imagine, we have a lot to deal with after lockdown! Instead, if you are able to email, then this would be the best form of contact.

We will contact you in the coming weeks regarding your appointment. If you are in pain, then please do still call us on 01452 524024.


We really do appreciate all your support during these strange times. It's the best feeling knowing that soon we will see you all again, however safety, as always, is our top priority. For now, things will still be a little odd, so please bear with us, and as always, stay safe.

Helping with stained teeth

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to provide you with tips to help reduce any embarrassment about stained and discoloured teeth.

Tooth cleaning gloucester

 

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.
