5 Ways to Keep Your Teeth From Staining

5 Ways to Keep Your Teeth From Staining

If you’re looking to keep your teeth from staining, there are many things you can do to make that happening. It can be as simple as altering some simple habits, visiting your dentist, and keeping up with your normal oral hygiene.

We have compiled a list of 5 ways to keep your teeth form staining:

1. Drink with a straw

With a straw, your drinks will miss the teeth that have the front line of defense in your mouth. However, you should still keep up with all regular dental care so the teeth not visible from your smile are protected from potential staining.

2. Rinse after drinking and eating certain foods

There are some foods and drinks that lead to tooth staining over time, including:

  • Blueberries
  • Wine
  • Soda
  • Blackberries
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Soy Sauce
  • Beets
  • Coffee

Be sure to brush your teeth or rinse out your mouth after eating and drinking from the list above.

3. Brushing and Flossing Daily

While it’s a key to overall oral health, brushing your teeth and flossing daily will help you to fight the effects of staining. Ask your dental healthcare provider about a whitening toothpaste that is best for your teeth!

4. Stop smoking.

If you smoke cigarettes regularly and notice your smile isn’t quite as white as it used to be, that’s no coincidence. Tobacco gets into the grooves of your tooth enamel and stains them.

5. Professional Teeth Whitening

We offer Teeth Whitening treatments at Elite Dental Associates such as Zoom, EZ White and take home trays. It’s a fast and easy solution for a whiter and brighter smile. Not all patients are good candidates for teeth whitening, such as patients with old dental bonding or porcelain crowns. Make an appointment online or give us a call at (214) 220-2424 to see what teeth whitening options are right for you!
