Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains
One of the most common requests we get at Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla CA is for teeth whitening, one of our cosmetic dentistry services.
Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. Our teeth tend to grow dull or get stained as the years go by: it’s just an unfortunate fact of life.
There are three types of stains on teeth:
- Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth. They’re the easiest to remove, and are caused by things like coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the aging process.
- Intrinsic stains form beneath a tooth’s enamel. They can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. They may be the result of trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or other factors.
- Combination stains usually include both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
