Dentist West Palm Beach | Teeth Stains and Their Causes

Are you struggling with severely discolored teeth? If you want to know more about the possible causes of teeth stains, it’s best to talk to your dentist West Palm Beach about your concerns and possible treatments. Meanwhile, check out the common causes of stained or discolored teeth:

Poor Dental Hygiene

When you’re not brushing, flossing, and rinsing enough, stain-producing substances and plaque will cause your teeth to discolor.

Eating and Drinking Dark-Colored Food and Beverage

Perhaps your regular consumption of food and beverage that are notorious for staining your pearly whites is causing this problem. Be sure to keep your consumption of the following deeply-colored foods to the minimum – colored fruits such as pomegranates, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, grapes, and cranberries; balsamic vinegar, black walnuts, dark-colored chocolates, ketchup, dark-colored sauces that include curry sauce, soy sauce, and tomato sauce; popsicles and slushies that contain teeth-staining food coloring, and other sweets that have coloring agents. Furthermore, instead of drinking black coffee, try adding a dash of milk to your cup of joe. It’s also best to avoid sipping cola beverages and fruit juices like cranberry juice all day long. Try to avoid drinking wine and dark-colored teas including English Breakfast and Earl Grey. Instead choose white, green, and herbal teas.

Smoking or Chewing Tobacco

Tobacco’s nicotine content and its additives can lead to the formation of yellow and brown residue on your teeth that can be very hard to get rid of.

Taking Teeth-Staining Medications

Antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline are notorious for causing discoloration on children’s teeth when they’re still developing. Antipsychotic drugs, antihistamines (Benadryl), and other medication for the high blood pressure may also stain your teeth.
