What causes stains?
There are a number of factors that can cause staining. Poor dental hygiene and overall health problems, such as diabetes, can all affect the appearance of your teeth. Teeth may also change colour as you get older and the enamel naturally thins.
Your teeth also comes into contact with everything you eat and drink. Tea, coffee, red wine, spicy foods and tobacco are all things that can contribute to visible discolouration.
A regular cleaning and polishing routine with your local hygienist will help keep your smile fresh and maintain great oral hygiene, but sometimes patients may find they need a deeper clean to lift those stubborn stains.
