The effectiveness of teeth whitening at Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla depends in part on the types of stains you have.
There are two types of tooth stains:
- Extrinsic stains are the simplest to remove. These are surface stains that have not penetrated through the enamel. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. Tobacco is also a notorious staining agent.
- Intrinsic stains are within a tooth. Injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove entirely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional teeth whitening.
