What Causes Stained Teeth?
Tooth discoloration can be the result of a variety of lifestyle factors. Poor dental hygiene is not the only factor – even if you consistently brush your teeth 2-3 times per day, certain foods and drinks (tea, coffee, red wine, cola), medications, diseases, and advanced aging, overexposure to fluoride in drinking water, tobacco and various other factors can cause stained or yellow teeth.
Infrequent dental visits where you can take advantage of professional teeth whitening services is perhaps one of the most significant factors causing stained teeth. Visiting a dentist regularly, will not only provide you with the cosmetic benefit of whiter teeth but can also help save you money down the track on expensive surgical procedures and rectification work.
How do I prevent yellow teeth?
Completely avoiding the potential for tooth discolouration is pretty much impossible. However, there are a few fundamental practices that you should include in your daily routine to help reduce your susceptibility to developing yellow teeth.
1) Brush your teeth at least twice a day or after every meal
2) Floss your teeth daily and whenever required
3) Use mouthwash
4) Visit your dentist regularly
5) Switch to an electric toothbrush
6) Get your teeth whitened
7) Get Veneers
