How to Prevent Stains on Your Teeth

Getting stains on your teeth is unfortunately all too easy due to the porous nature of our teeth. This is a shame when we work so hard to keep them pearly white! You can prevent stains easily, however, by following these simple steps:

  1. Drink through a straw. Sodas, teas, coffee, juices, and other colorful drinks can really do a number on the color of your teeth. However, when you sip your drink through a straw it prevents the direct contact and absorption that usually occurs when you drink from a glass normally.
  1. Brush 20-30 min after eating colorful foods. Blueberries, soy sauce, beets, tomato-based sauces, and other heavily pigmented foods will do less damage to the shade of your teeth if you brush them within 20-30 minutes of eating them. If you find yourself without a toothbrush, wipe the surface of your teeth with a napkin or handkerchief.’
  1. Try fast whitening. The best way to keep your teeth white is with professional whitening treatments. At Platinum Dental Care, we offer fast whitening treatments of multiple varieties that will give you the best results for your money and dental history,
