The extrinsic staining is the stains on the tooth enamel or at the surface of the tooth. And age-related tooth staining is the wear away of tooth enamel as you get old. It is caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. When you start noticing that your tooth color is getting changed and it is not getting better with a whitening product.

Tips to remove stains from teeth:

Avoid Beverages: There are certain beverages such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, and red wine that contribute to stains on teeth. Drinks such as white wine, soft drinks are acidic in nature and corrode the tooth enamel. So to maintain the white color on your teeth you should avoid the consumption of such drinks. If you are not ready to avoid these drinks, then you should start using a straw. Using a straw will not let these drinks come in contact with teeth. You can easily sip them and swallow.

Take Calcium-Rich Diet: Calcium is already present in enamel, but it is wiped away by the acid and sugar present in food. Having a calcium-rich diet can neutralize the effect of consuming sugar. Foods such as milk and cheese will strengthen the enamel of your tooth and may protect teeth from enamel erosion. Thus helping you to keep the color of your teeth white.

Rinse Regularly: After you eat something, you should rinse your mouth. Whenever you eat or drink something that you know may cause stain, then you should rinse your mouth with water. This will counteract the effects. In addition to this, you can chew sugarless gum. These gums generally contain a chemical known as Xylitol that helps in cleaning your mouth.

Use Whitening Toothpaste: One should brush and floss every day to prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar. This prevents the wearing off of tooth enamel. One should brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. Whitening toothpaste contains fluoride and polishing abrasives such as hydrogen peroxide that remove stains at the tooth surface. Furthermore, you can use whitening strips. These strips are used in the removal of extrinsic stains.
