Stained Teeth


Posted on 6/6/2022 by Giri Palani
Stained TeethIt's difficult enough that we must hide our smiles beneath masks when out and about. Don't allow discolored teeth to cause you to hide your grin once the mask is off! Continue reading to learn about some of the most prevalent causes of discolored teeth, as well as some effective preventative strategies. Just be careful not to blow up your laptop's camera when you flash your pearly whites during the next Zoom conference.

Causes of Stained Teeth


Most of us know about those foods and beverages that color our teeth. Black coffee in the morning? We see you. Stains come from more sources than you might think. Red wine, coffee, tea are all major culprits. But berries, especially blackberries and blueberries, curry, tomato sauce, even raw greens can stain your teeth. Stains can be caused by anything with a rich, deep pigment. Juices? Healthy and colorful. Beet juice can turn enamel magenta! So basically, all the good stuff stains your teeth. Whether it is cigarettes, cigars, chewing, or dipping, whatever method is preferred, all cause severe stains.

Prevention of Stained Teeth


Prevention is usually better to correction in dentistry. This applies to cavities, gum disease, and, yes, stains. We would never, however, advise you to give up coffee entirely or to deprive yourself of the pleasure of a fine glass of pinot noir. There are, however, a few basic precautions you can take to prevent the nicest things in life from dimming your grin. Maintain great plaque control. Great brushing and flossing practices, as mentioned in our prior essay, will safeguard your dental health. They do, however, assist to avoid stains! The plaque is quite sticky. Less color will attach to your enamel if it is squeaky clean. After staining meals and beverages, thoroughly rinse. Many staining substances may be rinsed out with a vigorous swish of freshwater before they have a chance to seep in. So, after your tea, juice, or even a lengthy swim in the pool, drink some water! This is especially crucial after consuming a dark beverage, which may both discolor and damage your teeth. Chew sugarless gum. Gum, like washing with water, can eliminate coloring chemicals before they can be absorbed. Chewing also increases saliva, which aids in the cleaning of your teeth and the neutralization of acids from meals. Just make sure it's free of sugar! Don't allow a stain on your teeth to prevent you from living your life!
