Are your teeth dark, dull, or discolored? Discover the causes of stained teeth and the treatments to make them whiter and brighter.

 

  1. Know the Dark Dangers of Dark Foods and Drinks

Many people are surprised that dark-colored foods and drinks can also darken their smile. The most common culprits are coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries, beets, soy sauce, and tomato sauce.

  1. It’s a Bright Idea to Cut Back on Darker Foods and Drinks

The best way to stop stains from starting is to limit your intake of dark foods and drinks. Since you may want to have them occasionally, dental care experts recommend that you sip dark drinks through a straw, as well as rinse your mouth with water after enjoying darker foods and beverages.

  1. See the Light about Tobacco Use

If you smoke or chew tobacco, it’s likely you’ll end up with gray or yellow teeth. According to dental care experts, sometimes these stains cannot be removed with any treatment for stained teeth.

  1. Good Dental Care can Prevent Bad Tooth Stains

By practicing proper oral hygiene and seeing a dentist regularly, you won’t have to deal with treatment for stained teeth. Remember to brush and floss your teeth every day, as well as visit a dentist in South Bend for regular check-ups and cleanings.

  1. Return from the Dark Side with Professional Whitening by a Dentist

According to dental care experts, in-office tooth whitening is the quickest, easiest, and safest treatment for stained teeth. It provides the most dramatic results and the treatment can usually be done in a single visit. If your dentist doesn’t offer whitening, look for a dentist in South Bend who specializes in this whitening, brightening dental care treatment.
