I am habitual of chewing pan masala which lead to discoloration of teeth. Can you tell me how can remove those red marks from my teeth?

Superficial stains can be removed by ultrasonic scaling and polishing. But if you are a chronic user then stains may be internalised so get bleaching done after consulting a dental surgeon. And quit the habbit of chewing paan masala.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.
Hi, stains caused due to pan chewing can go very deep inside the teeth. So a complete scaling procedure followed by bleaching will give you effective results.
