    How can I remove stains from my teeth?

    Once the stains are on your teeth, it is not possible to remove them safely yourself at home, not even by brushing more. In fact, if you brush too hard to remove the stains, you may irreparably damage your gums and enamel. To remove the stains, you can book an appointment with a dental hygienist who can use a range of methods to effectively and most importantly, safely remove them. You may be recommended to have an air-polish treatment which involves using a polishing power to remove the stains. This is the best method of stain removal on the market.
