How to Prevent Tooth Discolorations

Tooth discolorations can affect a person’s smile, confidence, and overall appearance. These discolorations can be caused by age, certain medications, diet, and lifestyle choices. Most stains are located in the upper layer of the tooth while some are located deep inside the tooth. Here at our Jacksonville Beach teeth whitening practice, you can have a brighter smile through the BEYOND™ treatment. It is effective on all kinds of stains, whether located in the upper layer or found deeper inside the tooth.

Despite the effective and safe treatment we offer, we still encourage patients to follow these tips to prevent staining.

Keep teeth clean by brushing every day. You have to brush your teeth at least two times every day. Apply the proper brushing techniques and use a toothbrush with soft bristles.

Floss regularly. The edges of stained teeth are the worst part because it is where plaque accumulates. Plaque attracts stains. By flossing properly, you can limit plaque and fight stains as well.

Stop smoking. It might be very hard to do, especially for someone who has been smoking for many years. Then again, you have to realize that smoking is not just bad for your teeth, but also for your health. Smoking contributes to different health problems. It also stains teeth.

Minimize drinking staining beverages. Coffee, colas, and teas stain your teeth. When you drink these beverages, it is better to finish a cup in a single sitting instead of sipping from the cup all throughout the day. Do not forget to brush after drinking.

Make use of a straw. By using a straw, you are reducing your exposure to beverages that can stain teeth.

Following these tips can help in preventing tooth discolorations. In case your efforts are not enough, especially for stains caused by heredity or use of certain medications, it is best to go for an effective and convenient teeth whitening treatment like BEYOND™.
