Most people notice their teeth getting dull as the years go by. Maybe duller teeth is the least of our worries as we age. On the other hand, who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? At Durham Dental Group, we use cosmetic dentistry to improve smiles every day!
There are lots of teeth whitening choices out there, and over the counter products like whitening strips and toothpastes can be moderately effective. But they cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.
There are two types of tooth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.
- Extrensic stains. Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them, because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
- Intrinsic stains. These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.
