Teeth whitening tips for stained teeth

Friday, January 29th, 2010

You may feel conscious about your teeth. Stained teeth can make you not want to smile for photos or when you’re around friends. You’ve tried that teeth whitening toothpaste but it didn’t make a difference. There are plenty of things which you can do to try and combat stained teeth.  Here are some teeth whitening tips:

Look at what you eat and drink because certain foods and drink such as curry, coffee and red wine and fruit juices  stain your teeth easily. Try and cut down on some of these. However, if you’re not quite prepared to give up that vitamin-packed fruit juice, use a straw as this reduces the contact with your teeth.

Brush your teeth regularly to maintain good oral hygiene and try an electric toothbrush if you feel you are not reaching every part of your mouth.

Flossing regularly removes the plaque which builds up around the gum line and teeth. Stained teeth can look worse around the edges as plaque is prone to staining.

Home teeth whitening kits are affordable and work just as well as teeth whitening procedures offered by a dentist. You can save money by doing it this way and it can be maintained regularly.
