Teeth stain for many reasons, including your food and drink choices, oral hygiene, and medication use. Teeth stains occur on the surface of the tooth or below the tooth enamel and some people develop both types of teeth stains.
Types of Tooth Discoloration (Stains)
Tooth discoloration can occur as a result of surface stains, due to actual changes in your tooth material, or because of a combination of both factors.
- Extrinsic Teeth
Stains: An extrinsic tooth stain is staining on the surface of the tooth.
It occurs when stain particles, build-up in the film of protein that covers the
tooth enamel. This type of tooth stain responds well to regular dental cleaning
and brushing the teeth with whitening toothpaste.
- Age-Related Teeth Stains: Age-related teeth stains combine the results of both intrinsic and extrinsic tooth discoloration. Because the core tissue of your teeth, the dentin, naturally yellows over time, teeth discolor with age. As we age, the enamel that covers the tooth becomes thinner, allowing the dentin to show through.
- Food and beverages
- Tobacco products
Changing your life style can prevent you from teeth stains.
- If you are a heavy coffee drinker or a heavy smoker try to reduce it or quit it altogether.
- Improve your dental hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly can help you to clean the food which stuck in between your teeth.
- Go for a dental checkup every 6 months.
- Usage of proper brushing techniques and the avoidance of food as well as beverages which cause stains.
- There are many home tooth whitening products to remove teeth
stains on the market.
Are you considering teeth whitening to help reinvigorate a smile tainted by discoloration? Professional, in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Unlike home-use systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are visible immediately.
- Produces fastest results.
- This is the safest form of bleaching.
- Gum and tooth sensitivity (formerly drawbacks to in-office bleaching) are more controllable today due to thicker peroxide gels (that don’t soak into the teeth as much as previous gels) and the use of desensitizers such as potassium nitrate and fluoride.
- More expensive than take-home alternatives.
- Results can be unpredictable, depending on factors such as age, heredity and the type of staining that is present.
- In-office bleaching is not a permanent solution. Shortly after treatment is completed, the teeth resume accumulating stains. Many dentists therefore recommend home maintenance follow-up with a lower-percentage bleach that can be kept on the teeth for longer periods of time.
