How to Prevent Yellow Stained Teeth?


Do you have yellow teeth? Having discolored and stained teeth can be very embarrassing. Many people go around with discolored teeth not knowing it shows a sign on poor hygiene. This could affect your personal and social life.

Here are some tips on how to prevent stained yellow teeth:

  1. Brush Daily – By brushing your teeth twice daily or after each meal you reduce the risk of having plaque and also remove stains caused by food. This is a very inexpensive way to keep your teeth white.
  2. Mouthwash – Use a mouthwash that has whitening agents. You could miss certain spots when brushing your teeth. A mouthwash can help you get to those hard to reach places.
  3. Floss – Sometimes brushing alone is not enough to get the food that is in between your teeth. By flossing you get germs out of those hard to reach places that mouth wash and brushing can’t do. Floss daily to maintain a healthy smile.

While all these techniques are effective, they take time to provide results. This all comes down to how stained your teeth really are. Luckily there are home whitening kits and in-office whitening treatments your dentist can offer.

Home whitening kits help you turn your yellow teeth into a white and healthy smile. Most kits even offer a free trial. Try them out with the help of your dentist before you make a decision and see which whitening method works for you.
