How Dental Stains Happen

Posted on 5/25/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
Dental Stains Waterford Dental Group CA 94568-4603Despite what you may think, having stains on your teeth is not necessarily a sign of poor oral hygiene.

Having white teeth is a dream most people have, and many will spend a lot of money to achieve that perfect smile, but there are certain things to you can do to prevent dental stains from happening. Here are two of the reasons why you can get stains on your teeth.

Stains from Eating Certain Foods

Food is the most likely reason you have stains on your teeth. The surface of the tooth is not smooth, but textured, with crevices that are the ideal place for bacteria build up. This creates more plaque, which adheres to teeth and can be reduced with good oral hygiene practices and removed by your hygienist at your bi-annual checkups.

When you know how dental stains happen, you can act and avoid foods that can cause the worse damage to your teeth. Some of these foods include coffee, tea, fruit juices, tomato-based products, certain berries, sugary drinks, chocolate, sodas, and hard candy.

Stains from Bad Habits

Another reason why dental stains happen is from bad habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco. Aside from the fact that smoking can put you at a higher risk for oral or lung cancer, it can also stain your teeth and make them take on a brown or yellow tint.
