Tips for Preventing Tooth Stains

Posted .

If you would like to maintain a white smile and prevent tooth stains, then our dentist, Dr. Paul Neumann, is more than happy to help you. Fortunately, there are things you can do daily to keep the stunning smile you know and love. Those things are:

-Avoid tooth-staining substances: There are things that can cause tooth discoloration, like coffee, cola, red wine, tomato sauce and dark berries. If you want to prevent tooth stains, it’s best to avoid these things. If you absolutely have to drink a dark beverage, use a straw. This can limit the contact the liquid has with the teeth.

-Don’t use tobacco: Tobacco not only stains the teeth, but it also affects the oral health as well as entire health. It’s best to avoid tobacco use altogether.

-Use abrasive or whitening toothpaste: These types of toothpaste can deeply clean the tooth enamel from minor surface stains each day. It can remove the stains before they set in and become more stubborn. This can help you prevent tooth stains as well as prevent the need for a whitening treatment down the road.
