brown stains between my bottom teeth at front and back caused by drinking tea.
I use floss with an abrasive toothpaste in between hygienist visits. Helps at the front but there's nothing like a good hygienist clean!! In fact I'm gonna book one tomorrow, I love that ultra clean feeling!
I have this problem too. I do go the hygenist every 6 months but like countingthepennies it comes back within a very short time. I use an electric toothbrush and whitening toothpaste which help but it never really gets the bits inbetween the teeth. Giving up tea and coffee is a big price to pay for very clean teeth....
Do you floss and interdental burshes? These will help a lot. Use once a day. Some people are just more susceptible to this kind of thing. I drink tea, red wine, smoke, etc... and don't get it at all. But I'm completely anal when it comes to my teeth having been a dental nurse in a previous life! (and I'm on day 2 of giving up smoking - eeekkk...)
I get this on my bottom tooth and obv the hygienist is the best for getting rid of it but inbetween visits I use and dental eraser couple of times a week, boots used to sell them now they don't so I buy them from Amazon for a couple of pounds!
I had this and it was coming back so quickly. So trip to the hygienist and then I bought White glo smokers formula toothpaste (Amazon/ebay) Was at the dentist last month and she commented the difference in staining was incredible - as in I have none I know people say toothpaste doesn't work, but this stuff is brilliant
