Bright Ideas for Avoiding Tooth Discoloration

dca-blog-tooth-discoloration_1200x630

When your smile is white and bright, you feel more confident and make a better impression. Discover how to save your teeth from the pain and strain of tooth stains.

  1. Floss Frequently
    Regular flossing does more than remove the food trapped between teeth. It can also save you from tooth discoloration. See, flossing also gets rid of the plaque that’s built up on your teeth, which can cause severe staining. But by flossing at least once a day, you can save yourself from stained teeth.
  2. Stay Away from Staining Foods and Drinks
    Too many people ruin their white smiles with dark-colored foods and beverages. Certain items like coffee, tea, red wine, and tomato sauce contain chromogens that cause the discoloration of teeth. Try to reduce your intake of these foods and drinks to prevent stains from developing. While they’re fine to enjoy occasionally, always rinse your mouth afterward to reduce their staining power.
  3. Sip with a Straw
    Believe it or not, a straw is one of your best defenses against the discoloration of teeth. Whenever you do have a dark-colored drink, sip it with a straw to avoid direct contact with your bright, white teeth.
  4. Cool your Coffee
    Interestingly, a hot cup of coffee is more likely to cause tooth discoloration than a lukewarm cup. See, hot coffee can cause tiny fractures in teeth, which are more likely to pick up stains.
  5. Select Sugar-Free Gum
    Chew on this—by chewing a stick of sugar-free gum after meals, you’re increasing the amount of saliva in your mouth. This saliva will wash away excess food particles to reduce your chance of stained teeth.
  6. Stop Smoking
    Smoking is as bad for your smile as it is for your health. By quitting smoking, you can reduce your risk of lung cancer, heart disease, and a stained smile. Cigarettes contain nicotine and tar, which cause major discoloration of teeth. Rather than live with a dark smile or continually pay for tooth whitening, it’s better to stop the habit before staining starts.
  7. Proceed With Professional Dental Cleanings
    One of the most important things you can do to keep your teeth healthy and white is have professional dental cleanings twice a year. During these cleanings, stain-causing plaque can be completely removed, which will keep your smile looking white and bright.
