Brown spots between your teeth: how do you get your teeth white?

  1. Everyone wants beautiful white teeth. Yet not everyone is blessed with radiant teeth. Yellow or brown spots between the teeth are therefore widespread. There can be various causes for this. Depending on the cause, these discolorations can be tackled well or less well. Fortunately, there are various methods and means to get discolored teeth white (ter) again.

Brown spots between your teeth

  1. Many people see, to their horror and horror, brown spots appear between their teeth. This is particularly disturbing when the front teeth are affected. The brown spots are difficult (just say: not) to remove and it is difficult to brush between your teeth. If you want to tackle brown spots between your teeth, you will first need to know what caused them.

Brown tartar

  1. In many cases, tartar is the main cause of brown spots between teeth. Tartar is plaque that has not been properly removed during brushing. Over time, the plaque hardens and voilà, you have tartar. This is widespread, especially on the back of the teeth. The big advantage of this location, however, is that it is not that obvious. You cannot remove tartar yourself, but you must have it dealt with by the dentist or dental hygienist. However, this also sometimes finds it difficult to get between your teeth: after all, you cannot slide teeth apart so that you can reach them better. Little can be done about tartar that is really firmly anchored between the teeth. In that case, bleaching is the only option.

Brown spots and discolouration from medicines

  1. Some types of medication and mouthwashes cause brown discoloration on and between the teeth. Examples of drugs that cause brown spots are minocycline, amoxicillin and tetracycline (all antibiotics). Chlorhexidine can also discolor your teeth. If you use one of these resources, make sure to use it for as short a time as possible. You can also discuss with the doctor whether alternatives are available.

Discoloration from foodstuffs and smoking

  1. Coffee, tea, smoking and wine discolour your teeth. The organic dyes contained in these products penetrate into your enamel from the outside or lay a hard coating on the outside of your teeth. If you have brown spots between your teeth and you think your eating and drinking habits are to blame, always get your teeth thoroughly cleaned before considering whitening them. Not only because the attack might not be that bad afterwards, but also because it is simply not that useful to bleach your attack when it really concerns your teeth.

Spot = hole?

  1. Yellow or brown spots between your teeth can also indicate starting cavities. The cavity may be accompanied by occasional pain, especially when you drink hot or cold drinks, but this is not necessary. "It doesn't hurt, so it's not a hole," is a misconception. If you think that brown spot between your teeth is actually a cavity, see the dentist shortly. All other options for getting rid of the spot will not work, because cavities need to be treated.

  1. If you want to take care of your discolored teeth yourself, it is good to first find out whether the discoloration is intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic discoloration goes deeper than just your enamel layer: intrinsic tooth discoloration also changes the color in your enamel or dentin. This can be caused by, for example, the aforementioned antibiotics, but also by:

Addressing extrinsic discoloration

  1. Extrinsic discolorations are "superficial" yellow or brown discolorations. External tooth discoloration occurs when dyes have a chance to penetrate the layer of plaque on your teeth. These dyes are for example in medicines, foods and drinks. Smoking can also discolour your teeth considerably. Fortunately, extrinsic discolorations are easy to treat.
