Coffee stains appear to be even more persistent than tobacco stains, in fact according to one study that compared the two types of stains, coffee stained teeth were more resistant to tooth brushing and more likely to become discolored again following a bleach treatment. In addition, the coffee stains tend to be sticky and apt to attract food particles and bacteria.
Fortunately, there are solutions for this external form of tooth discoloration, such as brushing your teeth twice a day and rinsing you mouth with water after coffee. Most importantly, regular visit with your dentist at least twice a year for your regular cleaning and polishing and to check all the problems in your teeth and gums.Leave a reply →
