How To Combat Staining!

Are you concerned about the staining on or inbetween your teeth? Then this post is perfect for you. Tooth staining can cause people to be conscious about their smile. Firstly, it is important to understand why staining occurs!

Staining appears on the teeth from;

  • Smoking.
  • Eating heavily coloured foods.
  • Excessivly drinking red wine, tea or coffee.
  • Certain mouthwashes.

Well, how can I remove staining?

Step 1.

Start by using a slightly abrasive toothpaste, this will remove extrinsic staining. A whitening toothpaste will usually do the trick for minimal amounts of staining.

Step 2.

Flossing or using interdental brushes. This will help keep staining down by removing plaque and debris from areas the toothbrush cant reach!

Step 3.

Book in with Eccleshill Dental Practice. Our Specialist hygiene therapist will assess whether those difficult stains require a hygiene scale and polish r an airpolish. If the staining is heavy and has been there for a while then you would require an air polishing appointment. The pressurised sand removes extrinsic staining without damaging the tooth surface.
