How To Remove Holi Colours From Teeth

Holi is definitely one of our most colourful and indulgent festivals and comes with all the fun of colours but sometimes these colours overstay their welcome on our skin hair and teeth. As they say prevention is better than cure it would be best to avoid colours which are not organic as they will stain teeth or the skin. If you happen to get exposed to these colours, Dr. Diksha Tahilramani Batra - The Pain Free Dentist, Prosthodontist, Implantalogist and Smile Design Specialist – suggests some tips to help you keep your smile as bright and white even after all the fun.

Using A Power Brush With An Abrasive Toothpaste

With mild stains on your teeth, you may use a battery-operated brush which helps scrub out any stains of Holi colours or even other food products. A white non-gel-based toothpaste, could even be a whitening paste, can help remove superficial colour.

Dental Cleaning

If the colours are especially resistant, then a dental cleaning may be recommended. Your dentist will be able to tease out any tough coloured stains which may have gotten stuck to old fillings or rough areas on your teeth which attract such foreign discolouration, be it from food or coloring agents like those found in gulaal.
