This message from Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark is about the effectiveness of teeth whitening, which depends partly on the types of stains you have on your teeth.
- Extrinsic tooth stains are the simplest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and liquids like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.
Unfortunately, even if you avert these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for some people.
- Intrinsic tooth stains arise from the inside out. 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 tooth whitening available at your cosmetic dental office.
It is never too late or too early to lighten your smile. Anyone can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed.
