Many people think that brushing and flossing is enough to prevent stains. While a good oral hygiene does help, stains naturally develop over time as the result of ingesting certain foods or consuming nicotine.
For example, coffee is one of the most consumed drinks on earth after water, and it’s also one of the greatest causes of teeth stains. Of course, coffee isn’t alone, dark soda, red wines, and basically any drink that could potentially stain your cloths if spilled play a part in turning your teeth yellow.
The goods news is that these stains are relatively easy to clean, in fact, in some countries companies sell teeth whitening products on common drug stores, and the process can be one even by non professionals
Do keep in mind that even if the product is of great quality, the outcome will never be as good as the end result of a professional, so, it might be a good short term solution, but it can’t never replace the job of a dentist. For example a chemical product cannot remove the tartar, which also stains the teeth.
In some cases, teeth whitening can also be used to whiten teeth that are naturally dark. This is done with a teeth whitening chemical product and it’s usually called teeth bleaching . The most common chemicals used are carbamine peroxide and hydrogen peroxide; while carbamine seems to be less effective, it’s also safer, since hydrogen tends to cause teeth sensitivity and gum irritation.
Some people grow addicted to teeth withening, that is, they always see an imperfection with their smile. At first it might seem like a rather tame obsession, but continuous use of bleaching products can have a tremendous detrimental effect on the oral health of the individual; besides overuse can lead to an unnaturally white smile that looks as bad as stained teeth.
There are some things you can do to prevent stains, for example, you can brush after eating or drinking any product that produces stains, you can use whitening strips periodically, and you can reduce the consumption of certain products. But even if you don’t, you don’t have to worry, a cleaning procedure is a simple and painless process which can greatly improve your looks and your selfsteem
