There are a number of factors that can cause staining. Poor dental hygiene and overall health problems, such as diabetes, can all affect the appearance of your teeth. Teeth may also change colour as you get older and the enamel naturally thins.
Your teeth also comes into contact with everything you eat and drink. Tea, coffee, red wine, spicy foods and tobacco are all things that can contribute to visible discolouration.
A regular cleaning and polishing routine with your local Louth hygienist will help keep your smile fresh and maintain great oral hygiene, but sometimes patients may find they need a deeper clean to lift those stubborn stains.
How often you visit your Broadbank Dental & Implant Clinic hygienist to remove stains depends on the condition of your teeth. A professional clean and polish with your dental hygienist is an important part of your overall dental hygiene routine, so it’s advisable to visit at least once a year. Your dentist and hygienist will work with you to advise on the frequency of your appointments, and offer guidance on keeping your teeth stain free.

Our hygienists use a jet system to gently removing plaque and visible surface stains, which is suitable for everyone, even for those with sensitive teeth.
This treatment works with a simple combination of 3 things, air, sodium bicarbonate and a jet of water. The water and air pressure are used to blast away plaque, while the addition of baking soda acts as a natural pumice to remove superficial stains caused by eating and drinking or smoking.
This jet cleaning system is a great alternative to chemical teeth whitening. Its less expensive to achieve your whiter, fresher smile and results are seen immediately!
