While professional, in-office dental cleanings can help polish away discoloration, there are measures you can take that will leave your teeth whiter and prevent stains from forming in the first place.
Proper, routine dental hygiene (brushing and flossing after meals, etc.) limits plaque formation, thereby reducing the buildup of tartar.
Similarly, reducing dark-colored food and drink intake can greatly enhance the results of rinsing, bleaching and brushing. To further prevent unwanted darkening, use a straw to sip beverages, as this will help minimize your teeth’s contact with drinks that stain.
Lastly, make sure to brush your teeth in soft, circular motions; intense scrubbing can thin tooth enamel, revealing darker-colored dentin that will make your teeth appear stained.
