Tooth staining is caused by food, drink, tobacco products, medications, and other substances that come into contact with the teeth. The best way to remove stains is to brush regularly and use an effective whitening product.
Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste.
Fluoride helps strengthen enamel, the hard outer layer of the tooth. It also helps protect against cavities. If you do not brush at least two times per day, you will miss out on these benefits.
Floss at least once per day.
You should floss every day because it removes plaque and food particles from between your teeth. This prevents bacteria from forming into tartar, which leads to tooth decay.
Avoid sticky foods like candy and gum.
If you eat sticky foods, such as candies and gum, try brushing them off before eating. Also, avoid drinking beverages with sugar added, such as soda and juice.
Don't drink too much soda or eat too many sweets.
Sugar is a major contributor to tooth decay. It's also found in some medications, so make sure you talk to your doctor before taking any new medication.
Visit your dentist regularly.
If you brush and floss properly, you'll reduce the chances of getting cavities. You should visit your dentist every six months for an exam and cleaning.
