Why are my teeth stained if I’m brushing properly?

Causes of Teeth Staining | Temple TX DentistTooth staining is very common, particularly as you age. Maintaining proper oral hygiene is essential for protecting your oral health, and it can also reduce a lot of staining.

But time takes its toll, and your teeth naturally develop tiny holes that provide a hiding place for food debris. This eventually leads to a dull appearance of your teeth.

Can certain foods cause tooth staining?

Indulging in certain foods and beverages or using tobacco products also contributes to tooth staining. If you are really serious about keeping your teeth as white as possible, it’s a good idea to avoid red wine, coffee, dark teas, and dark colored fruit like raspberries.

It’s good to know the conditions that lead to stained teeth so that you can avoid them in the future. Of course, your oral hygiene practice has an impact on the color of your teeth.

So you can see that there are a number of good reasons why your teeth are stained, but fortunately, teeth whitening can dramatically reduce the discoloration. At Temple Dental Trails we offer both KöR and Zoom Teeth Whitening. Depending on your needs, both are very effective at lifting stains and brightening your teeth.
