Why do Teeth Stain?

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

The single most common cause of tooth staining is that which you put into your mouth. Dark colored beverages, sugary foods and drinks, tobacco products, even certain fruits and vegetables will, without fail, darken and stain teeth.

The best way to minimize stains is through adopting a consistent oral hygiene routine complete with brushing after every meal and snack and flossing at least once a day. However, even the most rigorous dental hygiene routine may fail to remove all stains, necessitating a more advanced solution.
