If you have extrinsic discoloration/staining, start by trying a stain-removing toothpaste for a couple of weeks. Going for a stain-removing electric toothbrush can make a big difference here, too. Staining can also be removed during a professional teeth cleaning. If you have intrinsic yellowing, no amount of stain-removing toothpaste can lighten the inner color of the tooth. You’ll need to whiten your teeth using a bleaching gel that is held up against the teeth (but don’t run out to buy whitening strips quite yet!).

Diet for teeth whitening. Do you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums? Here are a few advices: Eat More Foods That Contain Malic Acid: Fruits like apples, pears and strawberries are malic acid rich and can actually help with whitening teeth. Eating more of these foods will help naturally whiten teeth. Those are just but a few tips that you can hack when it comes to whitening your teeth at home. However, the best way to whiten your teeth naturally, though it may not be the most convenient, is to simply brush your teeth with an appropriate toothpaste after eating or drinking something. As long as you’re consistent, you will see vast improvements. The antibiotic tetracycline causes gray teeth in children whose teeth are still developing. Antibacterial mouthwashes that contain chlorhexidine or cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Some antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and blood pressure medications cause tooth stains, as can iron and excess fluoride. If bleaching doesn’t help, ask your dentist about dental bonding, in which a tooth-colored material is applied to teeth.
