How to avoid stains on teeth
White, healthy teeth are a sign of good oral hygiene. What to do to keep teeth clean and remove stains?
What are the different types of stains?
Spots can occur in two ways: internal spots form under the enamel, while outer spots are visible on the surface. In the first case, the teeth take on a yellow or gray color. Taking some medications and antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin or tetracycline, may cause internal spots. Their development is gradual and intensifies with age.
The external spots usually come from insufficient brushing of the teeth. This lack of hygiene leads to the formation of dental plaque which promotes the appearance of tartar. Smoking and the consumption of coffee, tea or certain foods such as red fruits also contribute to yellowing of teeth. The colored molecules of these foods cling to the enamel and underlying layers.
