Top Tips to Prevent Tooth Stains
We all want to possess a white, bright smile. While regular trips to the dentist are obviously important, it is just as prudent to recognise the different types of stains as well as how to treat them.
Some stains exist only because tiny particles have amassed on the tooth’s surface, causing external discolouration. Other stains are caused when particles penetrate the enamel, or can originate from inside a dead or dying teeth.
Tips for avoiding teeth stains

- Avoid dark-coloured fruits and sticky foods
- Floss regularly
