Stained teeth

06/05/2006

Question:

My two front teeth have deep stains i think it was caused by eating to much lemons help me out. what can i use to remove them?

Answer:

Stains on or within our teeth are caused by a variety of different things; however, lemons typically do not stain the teeth but cause damage to the enamel itself.

If the discoloration you are describing is caused by lemons, we would treat it differently than stain caused by coffee, tea, cigarettes, etc.  I would suggest that you see a dentist so that he/she can determine exactly what type of stain is present and can make the appropriate recommendation.

Drop us a note again if you have any further questions.
