Dental Hygiene to Remove Stains

Be Regular About Hygiene

First of all, be regular about the dental hygiene procedures such as brushing twice daily and flossing once a day. This may not be the most effective way of removing your stains but sticking to basic dental hygiene would ensure that stains do not come back. Additionally, you may inculcate the habit of brushing after every meal.

Use Bakin Soda

Use baking soda for removing stains. Dip your toothbrush into a box of baking soda and wet it with water. Brush your teeth to remove the nooks and cranies from the mouth. These will get scrubbed off as you brush your teeth. Baking soda removes all the stains from the teeth without causing any harm to the tooth enamel. You can keep brushing until the stains are completely removed.

Use Peroxide Toothpaste

Use a peroxide prophy paste available at your local pharmacy. Peroxide is a natural cleanser. You only need to endure the bad taste for just two minutes after which your teeth would shine white.

Dental Care

Eat the Right Food

Have foods that require you to crunch in the mouth. It helps to reduce the impact of food compounds that cause staining. Apples and vegetables such as celery are some foods that strike against your teeth with a force that helps to remove stains. It also cleans the cracks and crevices in your mouth by getting rid of food that gets stuck in the mouth. On the other hand, if you eat chewy food, the food remains are likely to stick to your teeth and cause staining.

Polish Your Teeth

You can polish off the stains from your teeth by using a safe home remedy. Do not use peroxide solutions that dentists use for your oral wounds as that is a professional job. You can create a nice toothpaste-like gel for removing stains from your teeth by mixing baking soda with a little bit of hydrogen peroxide. Use it just like toothpaste. Make sure that peroxide used by you is only in very small quantity. Otherwise, you might end up burning your mouth from the inside.


These tips if followed earnestly would surely remove your teeth stains within weeks.

    I am in the habit of smoking and occasionally do chew beetle leaf, which you can imagine has left nasty stains on my teeth. Forget about flawless smile, I feel ashamed to open my mouth even to eat food, but such vices are hard to quit and so I am still on with them. But this seems promising, I never knew that we could remove such stains from our teeth. I must undertake in such hygienic practices so that I too can have stainless teeth.
