Once And For All, Here's How To Get Rid Of Coffee Stains On Your Teeth #SheFindsSolutions

January 9, 2018 by Alaisha Key

If you’re anything like me, then you have to have a steady cup of coffee or tea in the morning. And while you may need your daily caffeine fix, the one thing that you could do without are those yellowish brown stains that accompany each cup. So what’s a coffee lover to do?! Well, aside from giving up the java, here are a few tips and tricks that can help you get rid of those pesky stains.

1.Try a baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mix. One of the most tried and true methods to remove coffee stains from teeth, is to make your own whitening paste. Just mix together a small amount of baking soda and  lowest amount of hydrogen peroxide that you can find. Brush with the solution for a minute or two. Then rinse thoroughly with water. (Depending on the sensitivity of your teeth, make sure to consult your dentist before trying this method.)

2.Drink tons of water. If you don’t want to resort to chemicals, there are many other natural ways to help get rid of coffee stains on the teeth–the main one being to drink water after every cup of coffee. It’ll help wash away residue before it has time to sit. Even better, drink a sip after every few sips of coffee.

3.Use a straw when you can. Iced coffee drinkers are already ahead of the curve. Stain your teeth less by drinking beverages through a straw. That way the liquid does not directly come in contact with your teeth, helping to keep them whiter.

4.Remember to brush and floss. You’ve probably heard this from your dentist a million times, but brush and floss after every meal. I know it’s a pain, but it helps to do more than the mandatory two times a day, especially when you are consuming all kinds of foods and drinks that leave behind stains.

5.Cut back on the java. Doesn’t every coffee drinker want to cut back on a few refills? Well, it may be time to finally make that New Year’s resolution a reality by saying goodbye to a few cups. The less coffee you drink, the less teeth stains you’ll have.

6.Book an appointment with your dentist. The best way to get rid of those coffee stains on your teeth is to actually get a professional clean, so go ahead an book an appointment to get your teeth cleaned. Talk with your dentist about the stains, and from there, you can come up with the best plan to make sure that the stains stay gone.
