4 natural remedies for black stains on teeth

Stopping smiling is not a solution! 😄

What are black stains?

Some children and adults develop black stains on their teeth, also known as black tartar.

Most dentists are confused with this phenomenon, and blame coffee, tea, tobacco or soda.

Of course, these can also turn teeth brown, but this has nothing to do with black stains.

What are the stains made of?

They are deposits, mainly composed of ferric sulfide, which form during a chemical reaction in the mouth between :

  • Lactoferrin: a protein naturally present in saliva and food, especially cheese.
  • Iron.
  • Hydrogen sulfide.
  • Lingual lipase: a salivary enzyme, which prepares for the digestion of dairy products.

These deposits partly encrust the tooth enamel.

What are the causes?

It is a mixture of causes:

  1. High concentration of iron in the saliva.
  2. Presence of bacteria.
  3. Enamel erosion.
  4. Excessive consumption of dairy products.

1. High concentration of iron in saliva

Iron accumulation in saliva can be caused by certain diseases.

Most of the time, it is just a benign salivary dysfunction.

In most cases, there are emotional wounds behind the excess iron.

2. Presence of bacteria

There are some undesirable bacteria in saliva.

The ones we are interested in produce hydrogen sulfide, a foul-smelling gas.

The latter is partly responsible for bad breath.

These bacteria are usually caught during a saliva exchange.

There is a natural process in the body to eliminate them. However, it may not work, also because of memories of emotions.

3. Enamel erosion

Tooth enamel is the protective layer that covers the teeth.

My enamel is often damaged, mainly by :

  • Some industrial toothpastes.
  • Scaling and bleaching.
  • Excessive tooth brushing.

Indeed, many toothpastes use abrasives to whiten teeth.

Here are the main components that damage enamel:


4. Excessive consumption of dairy products

Dairy products contain lactoferrin.

Regular consumption of cow’s milk products, especially cheese, promotes black spots on the teeth.

How to remove them?

Fortunately, there are solutions for this unsightly tartar.


Stains can be removed by descaling the teeth.

However, most whitening procedures tend to erode the enamel.

In addition, the relief is usually short-lived, and the black stains quickly reappear.

Homemade solution

To dissolve ferric sulfide deposits on teeth, this homemade solution is equivalent to the dentist’s :

  1. Mix some white vinegar, lemon drops, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
  2. Soak a cotton bud in the mixture and apply to the tooth.
  3. Wait 30 seconds.
  4. Use a metal tip and gently rub the stains.

This is also a short-term option, and long-term solutions should be explored in parallel:


The anaerobic bacteria responsible for the creation of hydrogen sulfide can be eliminated by mouthwashes with :

  • Tea tree essential oil.
  • Clove essential oil.
  • Hydrogen peroxide.
  • Zinc chlorite.
  • Lemon.

I can use my felt sense to find out which ones I need.

3 mouthwashes per day for 2 days have the immediate effect of stopping the formation of dark stains.

Obviously, it is easy to recontaminate myself, for example if I licked the spoon of the honey pot. Hence the importance of exploring the emotional causes in parallel.


If I have stains on my teeth, there are often emotional wounds involved.


  • Fear of my own darkness (my memories, flaws and desires that I repress).
  • Anger against my parents who scold me for not brushing my teeth.
  • Anxiety about being ugly.

I discover how to free myself from emotional memories.

Personally, there were several emotions behind my black stains. Specifically, I had accumulated resentment against a street vendor under the Eiffel Tower who had spit on me as a teenager.


Tooth enamel is composed of approximately 95% hydroxyapatite, a mixture of calcium and phosphate.

To rebuild the enamel, and thus protect my teeth, I can supplement with hydroxyapatite.

Ideally, I can add some to my home-made toothpaste.

First, I understand the causes: it is an oral chemical interaction.

Secondly, I solve the physical and emotional causes.
