One thought on “What Causes Yellow and Brown Braces Stains?

    “Braces stains” that aren’t white are usually due to a fewthing besides enamel demineralization. For instance, perhaps the tooth started to develop an area of decay, but a re-vamped oral hygiene routine allowed the tooth to remineralize. Since plaque contains acidic bacterial byproducts (also responsible for tooth decay), the sticky film can damage your enamel’s outer layers. White spots on teeth are one of the most common side-effects of plaque buildup during orthodontic treatment. If you don’t remove it thoroughly each day by brushing and flossing, the tooth gradually weakens and loses its integrity. This process can create a chalky-white appearance in those specific areas. When that happens, it a fewtimes leaves a brown stain as a “scar” in the tooth.
