Dental stains are one of the most common problems we can help you with in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry. There are three different types of dental stains. The most common spots are superficial and those can be corrected with laser whitening. This type appears on the tooth surface. Its appearance is a dark brown color. In general, they are caused by foods such as coffee. The great risk of superficial spots is cracks in the teeth. Being on the surface, they can penetrate the fissure, something that makes it difficult to eliminate.
Another common type of dental stains are soft deposits. They appear on the gum line and may be dark or rather yellow. Its origin is usually the accumulation of bacterial plaque and the formation of tartar between the teeth and gums. Finally, intrinsic stains can also arise. They are less common and often appear on the surface of the enamel. They have a yellow or even light brown tone. Some of the causes of this type of dental stains are the intake of medications or a premature dental aging.
How to eliminate these dental stains? One of the most recommended treatments is professional dental cleaning. To improve the results of cleaning, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene at home. To do this we recommend brushing your teeth a minimum of twice a day (before going to sleep and in the morning). It is also highly advisable to use mouthwash and floss.
Another factor to consider is food. To prevent the occurrence of dental stains, it is recommended to moderate the consumption of foods such as coffee or wine. It is also important to go regularly to the dentist. Detecting the appearance of stains from the beginning will be key to eliminate them quickly and effectively. This can be done easily during your visit to Cancun in a short time.
