First, you need to examine your smile and lifestyle choices. To examine your smile, it’s best to visit your dentist so they can determine how much tooth discoloration you truly have.

These could be drinking coffee, soda, or wine or even eating dark foods and berries or dark sauces. If you want to prevent stains in the future, you need to avoid eating or drinking these things or rinse your mouth with water immediately after consuming them.

Second, start a whitening program. This could be whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, whitening trays, or even a professional whitening treatment.
