What Causes Discoloured Teeth?
Teeth become discoloured over time if you’re prone to one of the below habits, but with brushing your teeth twice daily and regularly visiting the dentist your teeth will be white and healthy in no time. The most common tooth discolouration is from Extrinsic, when the outer layer of the tooth enamel is stained.
Foods and drinks which stain the extrinsic layer of teeth:
– Fizzy drinks
– Citrus and acid foods
– Blueberries, Blackberries and Pomegranates
– Red Wine
– Soy sauce
– Tomato sauce
All of these foods and drinks are common culprits for the discolouration of teeth. You can still enjoy a cup of tea or pasta with tomato sauce, but try rinsing your mouth with water afterwards to help prevent stains. Plus regular visits to the dentist and hygienist will keep teeth stains away!
We’d also recommend picking up a low-abrasive teeth whitening toothpaste, like Janina Ultra White. They’re ideal for using as your normal toothpaste each day as they contain the optimum fluoride levels, as well as a Bromaine Complex of fruit enzymes to whiten teeth without the harsh abrasives.
