Does anyone have any good recommendations for getting rid of brown stains & scale on teeth, other than a scale & Polish at the dentist? My oral hygiene is good. I don't smoke but drink a couplee of cupos of black tea a day. After my last scale & polish at the dentist, the staining seemed to build up again quite quickly. What can I do?
Crest whitening strips are good but gave me sensitive teeth. I'm currently using the activated charcoal with good results, they work after the first use. You can get the activated charcoal from Amazon, sorry I can't remember where I got the crest strips from.
Then maintain with Crest strips once or twice a year IF your enamel isnt weak (purists will say never use them as they have a higher percentage of peroxide than the UK govt authorise , but if you don't have existing dental issues, I'd say go for it - they're widely available in the USA, and American teeth seem to trump British teeth, I'd say ).
Once weekly brush with Euthynol (sp?) powder helps to remove superficial tea/coffee stains, too.
Thanks for all the replies, I guess the best option would be to give up tea altogether but that seems a bit drastic! 😕 I've just bought some Pearl Drops toothpaste which seems slightly abrasive so I'll give that a go. It's not that I actually want them whitened...I just want some individual stains to go. 😢
Yep. White glo toothpaste. Shifts staining (use with the included toothbrush) It says non abrasive but I'm not convinced so I only use it for removing stains, not every day. I was really self conscious and it works
