How to Remove Brown Stains From Teeth

By Brian Massey ; Updated July 27, 2017

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, our teeth can build up tarter and plaque; and they begin to become stained with brown or yellow. Common causes are your morning dose of coffee, tea, cola or cigarettes. Even staying away from these, won't guarantee safety. Certain medications and aging can cause your teeth to become stained with brown.

  1. Mix half a tablespoon of baking soda with half a teaspoon of vinegar and a 1/4 teaspoon of table salt. Slosh this mixture around in your mouth for 1 minute directly after you brush your teeth, letting it act as a mouthwash.

  2. Mash 15 Tulsi leaves together with the dry rinds of an orange. You can use this as a toothpaste to brush with; but it also works if you cake it onto your teeth and leave it for 5 minutes or so before rinsing your mouth out with hot water.

  3. Grind strawberries into a fine paste and dab around your teeth. Rub the inner portion of an orange rind along your teeth to remove the strawberry paste and simultaneously apply the teeth whitening effects of the orange rind itself.

  4. Sprinkle sage over your whitening toothpaste before you begin to brush, and brush your teeth normally with sage enriched toothpaste. Alternatively, you can brush using full sage leaves.

  5. Brush between every meal and use whitening paste if possible. Apply the easy to use remedies, like rubbing orange rind over your teeth and gums, during the day, and create the pastes and washes for use at night before you go to bed.

  6. Tip

    You can substitute strawberries with tomatoes or amalaki as they are both rich in vitamin C.

    Warnings

    You may notice slight discomfort or tingling in your gums with some of these remedies, but if you feel any other symptoms or get sick, see a doctor.

    Before attempting to use any of these remedies, make sure you see a dentist and find out the underlying cause of your teeth stains. Changing medications or quitting smoking can drastically reduce staining without any further action.
