Do you dream of a whiter smile? Make it a reality today. Tooth discoloration is a common area of concern for many of our patients. If you are bothered by tooth discoloration, you are not alone. Research shows that up to forty percent of adults aged eighteen years and up have considered tooth whitening due to stains or discoloration.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
There are many factors that cause tooth discoloration, which is why it is so common. A few of the reasons you may have discolored teeth are below.
Stains on the Enamel of the Tooth: Stains on the enamel of the tooth, also known as extrinsic discoloration, can be caused by common foods eaten, beverages and by items exposed to teeth. Coffee, red wine, cola sodas, teas, and tobacco are all common causes of extrinsic staining. Luckily, this type of staining is the easiest to remove.
The Dentin is Stained: The dentin, or inner structure of the tooth, can darken or yellow for many reasons. The staining can occur due to certain medications, too much fluoride, tooth trauma, or may be a symptom of certain medical conditions. Dentin staining, also referred to as intrinsic discoloration, cannot always be treated. Rochester Dental Clinic can determine the reason for the staining and help you decide whether to proceed with dental whitening, or whether another option, such as veneers may be a better solution.
Age: As you age, your teeth naturally discolor. Dentin naturally yellows and enamel begins to thin, causing both yellowish and grayish stains to appear. Fortunately, bleaching is safe and very effective at removing stains that appear due to your age.
