Why Coffee Stained Teeth Happen

Coffee stained teeth occur when tannins in the coffee build up on your tooth enamel. Superior oral hygiene can help reduce coffee stained teeth, but that isn’t always enough. Our experienced dental team at Leigh Dental Centre can help to remove these unwanted stains.

How to Remove Stains From Your Teeth Caused By Coffee

Whitening Toothpaste

Some whitening toothpaste can remove stained teeth but this could take a few days, weeks or months depending on the type of toothpaste being used.

If you want a quicker solution to removing stains from your teeth Leigh Dental Centre’s experienced team can help. Depending on the severity of the stain we may recommend one of these two options or both if appropriate.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a very popular procedure to help improve your smile. It lightens the colour of your teeth and makes them look clean if done professionally. They certainly give you quicker results especially if done in chair or via the take home kits compared to whitening toothpastes. Our hygienist and dentists can guide you on how teeth whitening could help remove coffee stained teeth and improve your smile.

Air Polishing

Air Polishing is a dental hygienist treatment that quickly and effectively removes unwanted stains on the front and back of teeth. The procedure utilises a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to gently and completely remove staining caused by tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco.

Air Polishing has many advantages most importantly it is a very gentle procedure that reduces discomfort for patients with sensitive teeth. It can also be used on dental implants and can remove up to 100% of dental plaque.
