    How Do You Get Coffee Stains off Your Teeth?


    Coffee stains can make your beautiful smile dull. It is one of the most common complaints dentists hear from their patients, even though the decision to drink coffee is fully the patients’. So, now that you have those stains, how do you get rid of them?

    1. Keep your teeth clean – Since we were children, our parents always told us to brush our teeth. Though we’ve been doing it since before we can remember, first with mom or dad’s help, and then on our own, most of us don’t brush our teeth properly. If you have been told by your dentist that you need to brush better, you should consider using an electric toothbrush. Be sure to use a gentle pressure with the electric toothbrush. It can cause just as much damage as a hard bristle brush if you press too hard.teeth-whitening-hammond-dental-clinic.

    2. Floss – As we grew, our parents added the task of flossing to our oral hygiene routine. Flossing helps to remove the darker stains around the edges of your teeth and the gumline. This is w
    here bacteria contributes to plaque. Floss and you will reduce the stains on your teeth.

    3. Choose your beverages carefully – Coffee stains your porcelain mug, in much the same way that it stains your teeth. To help prevent the stains, drink your coffee in one sitting, as opposed to sipping it throughout the day. When you are done with your drink, be sure to brush your teeth. You should also choose what you add to your coffee carefully. Too much sugar or creamer, or even flavored coffees, can cause additional damage to your teeth, creating areas for the coffee to stain on your teeth.

    4. Stain-removing toothpastes – You can use a stain-removing toothpaste, however, you should do so with caution. Though these toothpastes are often touted as being smoker toothpastes, they can also be used to remove coffee, tobacco, and other stains. However, you should use caution when using them. They are highly abrasive and can do more damage than good if you are not careful. In fact, you should speak with your dentist before using them, especially if you have sensitive teeth. There are few products on the market that are designed for sensitive teeth and stain removing.

    5. Cosmetic cleaning – If you are between visits to the hygienist, you can request a “cosmetic cleaning”. It will take less time than a regular cleaning, and should not cost as much. You should not use these cosmetic cleanings as a replacement for a regular cleaning, though. They are not as deep or intense as a regular cleaning. They will also not be covered under any dental insurance you may have, so you should plan on paying for these out of pocket.

    6. Stick with proven treatments – As much as you may want your teeth to shine again, you should not take your cleaning into your own hands. Do not follow recommendations of friends when they do not know the protocols that dentists follow. Baking soda is harsh and can scratch your enamel and your crowns. Dental picks can also damage your teeth and your gums. Also, applying chlorine bleach in an attempt to whiten your teeth can cause more damage than it helps to repair.

    Before you begin any whitening routine, be sure to speak to your dentist. The health of your mouth is nothing to play with. If you follow a routine without consulting your dentist, you can cause irreparable damage and the health of your mouth affects more than just your teeth or gums. Always seek the advice of your dentist before beginning any unprescribed routine.

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans
