How to Avoid Staining Teeth

Keeping our teeth white is a top priority on many of our cosmetic to-do lists. In addition to our professional teeth whitening system, at Bensalem Dentistry of Bensalem, PA, we also want to offer advice to our patients for keeping teeth white!

At Bensalem Dentistry, we have a professional teeth whitening system that is great for kick-starting whiter teeth. But there are tips for keeping teeth white after a whitening procedure, or even for whitening before a procedure!

Rinsing the mouth after consuming dark liquids and foods will help avoid debris from staining teeth. Avoiding dark foods and liquids is best, but that is not always possible. Using a straw to drink dark liquids can help. Also, make sure to brush and floss your teeth three times per day to remove plaque that can trap stain causing debris close to the enamel.

When choosing toothpaste, make sure to choose one that is not too abrasive. In addition, do not bear down on the teeth too harshly when brushing. Using abrasive toothpaste and brushing techniques will actually wear down enamel, allowing darker colored dentin to show through. This also makes teeth prone to cavities.

Keeping teeth white and bright is not as hard as it seems with some minor changes throughout your day.
