Stained Teeth is an abnormal color of the tooth due to accumulation of stains on the tooth. Due to the excessive intake of tobacco, betel, paan and certain foods and drinks, the teeth tend to stain.
HOW IS STAINED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
Symptoms include stains on the enamel. They can range from white streaks to yellow tints or brown spots and pits. If the enamel has worn away, and dentin is showing through, you may notice a yellow tint. No special tests are needed. A dentist or other dental professional can diagnose tooth discoloration by looking at the teeth.
HOW IS STAINED TEETH TREATED?
Getting rid of Stained Teeth incorporates a strict hygiene routine. Brushing twice a day, washing mouth post every meal, eating calcium rich foods and also reducing caffeine and nicotine. Whitening toothpastes may also be suggested by your dentist here.
