Want To Brighten And Whiten Your Smile?
Teeth whitening is a popular and expert option performed. to brighten your smile. A healthy mouth and radiant teeth will help you to put confidence into your everyday life. Before starting a whitening treatment, it is important for a dentist to examine your mouth to advise whether the whitening process is right for you.
Below are the three common reasons for tooth stains:
Extrinsic Stains – Extrinsic stains occur on the outermost layer of the tooth, which is also known as the enamel. Extrinsic stains are the result of food and beverages that stain the teeth, including coffee, dark soda, tobacco, and red wine.
Intrinsic Stains – Intrinsic stains occur when the inside of the tooth, which is also called the dentin, begins to yellow or otherwise darken over time. These stains can happen if:
- You ingested too much fluoride in early childhood.
- You tetracycline in early childhood.
- You suffer from dentinogenesis imperfecta
- Internal bleeding occurs inside the tooth
- Trauma occurred to the tooth during its development
Natural Staining – Age-related stains are the result of both extrinsic and intrinsic stains together over time. Dentin naturally yellows and enamel also wear down over time. This allows the yellow of the dentin to become more visible through the enamel.
Unfortunately, many types of stains are permanent. In these cases, you can either undergo professional tooth whitening from our expert doctors at Exclusive Smile or choose crowns or veneers to whiten and brighten your smile.
The best way to prevent stains is to brush and floss every day and rinse your mouth with water after consuming foods or beverages that can stain your teeth. In addition, make sure to visit our dental office for check-ups and cleanings every 6 months.
