If the reason that teeth are stained is because of improper home care of your mouth and teeth, whitening will not work.

TOP DENTAL HYGIENE ROUTINE TO KEEP TEETH WHITE

Not all whitening products work and are appropriate for everyone. Here are daily habits that can help ensure your teeth don’t darken as a result of inadequate oral hygiene. When you don’t regularly brush, floss and rinse to reduce food particles, bacteria and debris from your mouth, these can turn into stain-making substances that darken the teeth. Follow these steps every day to prevent hygiene-related stains on your teeth.
