- Maintain good oral hygiene
Good oral hygiene not only keeps your mouth healthy but also helps keep your teeth white. Plaque that sticks on and between your teeth can harbour bacteria can cause discoloration of your pearly whites. Brush at least twice a day. In addition, do not forget to floss once or twice a day preferably after dinner.
- Watch your diet
Foods you eat may show their tell-signs on your teeth. Stay away from tooth-staining foods and drinks like red wine, colas, dark juices/curries, black tea, coffee, etc. And if you do have them make it a habit to drink water after that.
- Use an electric or ultrasonic toothbrush
Electric and ultrasonic toothbrushes claim to regain the original white colour of your teeth without bleaching! By removing stains from food, coffee, etc., they restore the teeth to their natural colour. They also contain no chemicals or bleach to damage the enamel. These brushes also provide deep cleaning
- Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables
The abrasive quality of crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, pears, carrots, etc. can help clean stains from your teeth. Surely an apple a day can help keep tooth stains at bay! Apple is a fibrous, crunchy fruit with natural cleansing and astringent properties. Go ahead and munch some, especially after you have your meal.
- Increase your intake of dairy products
Dairy products like cheese and yogurt contain minerals like calcium and phosphorus that can not only keep your teeth sparkling but also keep them free from cavities by remineralisation of tooth enamel.
- Visit your dentist regularly
Whatever tips you choose to follow it is of utmost importance to visit your dentist regularly. Along with the routine check-up, your dentist can remove stubborn tooth stains with scaling and other tooth whitening procedures.
