Hello doctor,

I have a problem with my teeth. I started using Hexidine mouthwash last month for whitening of teeth, but it is not helping me, and soon my teeth are becoming brownish at some places. What should I do to clean it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Using Chlorhexidine mouthwash for more than 15 days in continuation causes brownish discoloration, that is the reason your teeth are becoming brownish. Now that you have developed chlorhexidine discoloration, I do not think scaling will be of any use. Instead, I would suggest you for either bleaching or veneering. Veneering is the solution for the type of stains that you have developed. Dental veneers are thin flakes of tooth-colored material, which are applied over the original teeth.

Good luck.
