#4. Avoid using mouthwashes that contain alcohol.

If you use an alcohol-based mouthwash, it can actually wreck the balance of the natural ecology in your mouth, otherwise known as the oral microbiome. When the oral microbiome isn’t in balance, staining can occur more rapidly. Protect your mouth and avoid stains by using an alcohol-free mouthwash.

#5. Brush your tongue.

Teeth-staining bacteria often accumulates on the tongue. When you brush your teeth, you should also brush your tongue. Another option to remove the bacteria on your tongue is to use a tongue scraper.

#6. Get your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis.

Some stains are just too deep for your toothbrush to handle. The good news is that professional teeth cleanings can help to minimize, if not eliminate, the stubborn stains on your teeth.
