How do I prevent my teeth from becoming discolored and stained?
Brushing your teeth after every meal will help prevent stained teeth. Some dentists recommend you rinse your mouth with mouthwash or water after having wine, coffee or other drinks and foods that stain. Regular cleanings by your dental hygienist also will help to remove stains.
Intrinsic stains that are caused by damage to a nerve or blood vessel in a tooth sometimes can be prevents. You may need to have a root canal before the tooth has a chance to decay and darken the tooth further. However, some teeth that have root canals may darken anyway.
